Gary was lovely and very friendly. Cleaner and much nicer than we expected would definitely recommend. A lot of space for family. Free videos and was quiet location. Opposite supermarket and easy walk into town. Our only complaint was the upstairs window that opened too easily and didn't have a lock . Very unsafe for children and a young child...

This motel attracted us because it was only about 600 metres from the ferry terminal. If arriving on the evening ferry from Wellington, it is an excellent stop-off for the drive to Golden Bay the next day. Conversely, on the return journey, you have a two minute drive to the vehicle check-in the following morning. Aside from this convenience, the...

Friendly staff and resident cat. Just across the road from the supermarket. No problem minding our luggage when we walked the Queen Charlotte Track. Late check out on our last day was appreciated. Would stay there again.

We were on a tour of New Zealand and we stayed at this motel after the ferry crossing. The motel was average and was close to the port and town centre in a row of motels/hotels. The bed was firm and the bathroom was functional. There were a number of restaurants in walking distance. The wifi was good.

Picton was one of our favourite stops in New Zealand, what a great little town. this motel is handy to the shops, ferry and tourist activities. The managers are very helpful and pleasant, all facilities we needed provided at a reasonable price. Quiet location, VERY clean, modern and comfortable for our 3 night stay!

This motel was convenient to the ferry as well as restaurants and the harbor. We also did a load of laundry which was much appreciated. Clean and comfortable beds were all that we needed. Good cross ventilation in the room -- love fresh air.

We ferried over from the north island and stayed the night in Picton. It's a lovely little town for families with a wonderful playground on the harbor. We stayed in one of the two suites and were pleased with what we got for the price. The suite was very spacious with two bedrooms, a kitchen with a stove, and a...

Arrived after quite an eventful few days and was greater by lovely hosts always willing to help and give great service! The motel was in a great location near to travel links, the harbour, and main St and across from the local grocery store. The room was always kept clean, great facilities, and nicely decorated. Would 100% stay again and...

The hotel room was very cute. Two beds on the bottom floor and a loft with two extra beds. The clerk at the front desk was very polite and offered a choice of milk to go with coffee in the morning. That's better then those little milk packets you usually see in the hotels. There are plenty of cooking appliances...
