“Beautiful place in a convenient spot with great views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 March 2012

We only spent one night here before we took the ferry to the North Island the next day.
The room was spacious with modern furniture, the bed comfortable and the balcony had a nice view over the harbour. The kitchenette was fully equipped so you could cook if you wanted but we didn't use that. The fridge came in handy though as we could store all our breakfast stuff in there. The motel also has a guest laundry and the staff was really nice and helpful.
The town is not very big so you can walk everywhere. It is only about five minutes drive to the ferry terminal.
Would definately stay here again and recommend it.

Room Tip: We stayed at the second floor which had a nice view. Third floor is supposed to have the best view b...

Do not miss this hotel if you stay in picton. Keith and lynn and their staff are meticulous in keeping the hotel at its best. The best rooms are the delux suites, which cost a little more but are on the top floor with fantastic views of the harbour. There is a guest laundry and a clothes line so that the clothes can get some fresh air a sunshine. We will stay here every time we are in the area.

Room Tip: Book a delux suite for the best view.

We were lucky to get the last room available. Though it was on the lower level, and therefore in theory had a worse view than the rooms on the upper levels, the view was fine. Although nearer the road the traffic noise did not disturb us. The room was perfectly clean and much of it seemed new. I was told by the Owners that this was not the case, but that they looked after the rooms well. We would happily return to this Motel.

Excellent in every way! The view was wonderful, the room was spacious, airy, and very well equiped. It was spotlessly clean too. It was an easy stroll to the town centre and to the harbour. The hosts were pleasant and helpful. What more could you ask!

We stayed at the Picton Harbor View Motel, which has this gorgeous view of the marina and the Sound! The room was spacious, had all the facilities one could want, and very quiet, peaceful and relaxing.
The location is convenient and central—yes there is a little hill (maybe 10-15 steps), which is only a problem if you are lugging your suitcases to the office. We got there early in the day, left our luggage with the owners, and wandered around the very cute town with beautiful views and friendly people. When we got back to the motel, we were told that our bags had already been moved to our rooms!
We had arranged for a cruise of the Sound with a person who was very good at spotting birds and wild-life. Unfortunately, their boat developed a mechanical problem, and we had to make alternative plans. Lynn and Keith helped us make alternative arrangements, and helped us sort through the options, and salvaged what might have been a ruined day! They were consistently friendly, accommodating and cheerful.
Oh, and make sure you try the hot chocolate in the room—the brand they use is the best I came across in 5 weeks of travel in Australia and NZ! Hint—add a slight dash of milk for an even richer taste.

Room Tip: Get a room on the 2nd floor
