We stayed in many hotels and motels throughout South Island. Our family group voted this the best place we stayed - for quite, location, view, standard of units, friendly helpful Manager. The Jolly Roger restaurant is within 6 minutes walk and great for dinner. Picton itself was lovely and we wish we could have stayed longer. A big thanks to Kerry for making our stay a great one

Room Tip: all rooms are great and overlook the bay

We loved the stay here. The apartment itself was nicely furnished and garden area is very spacious. Our stay was peaceful and the views from the apartment were stunning. The location handy, close to Picton, but far enough away from the main area.

Room Tip: Sea and mountain views, romantic and peaceful

This hotel is 5 mins drive from picton ferry and yet has the most beautiful views of the sound. All rooms are large and face the beautiful sea view with lovely lawn down to the waters edge. It is far better than any of the hotels crowded in town with views of the ferry car park. If we had known it was so nice we would have stayed 2 nts

Room Tip: All rooms have self catering with tea and coffee fresh milk and wonderful views

We were supposed to stay at Bay Vista for a night but loved it so much we had to stay for another! The location is amazing, so peaceful with the beautiful water views. My 4 year old son loves to run around on the large lawn and explore the beach. The staff are lovely and accommodating. The motel has everything you need. Our stay has been our third here this year and we hope to be back again soon!

Stayed here for four nights. Picton is a gorgeous small town and this accomodation is top notch. Owner Kerry has looked after us so well. Units are relatively modern and in very good condition and serviced daily. View from all units is awesome of the bay boats and surrounding mountains. Highly recommend to everyone.
