We booked this online so were expecting something a bit different to what we got. Our 2 bed unit was quite tired although I believe the units are being done up. It was very clean and tidy but the living space was quite small so wouldn't want to be here for too long with 2 teenagers! We arrived in the...

Booked to stay at this accomodation online, as we wanted to stay two nights and wanted something central to enjoy as a family. Definitely is in a good location, however I'd rather stay out of town a bit if it meant nicer accomodation. This was expensive accomodation for our family ($195 a night for a two bedroom unit) but we...

In the middle of Picton's main street with parking for each unit at the door this motel could not be more conveniently located. Room was recently refurbished and all our expectations. Would definitely stay again.

This place is dated, unkept, is desperately in need of maintenance - the shower has a sign saying you must turn the tap on to work shower!, owners need to fix this as the shower was a trickle. There was a horrible wet patch by the fridge as it wasn't working, flies and old. I would need see this as...

I cannot honestly believe what happened last night. We stayed in the room 6 on 1st January for a night for $170. My partner, my mother and I woke up this morning discovered we both beaten severely by god knows what. We went to report to reception, they didn't seem to care. We had to go to to closest chemist...

Located right in the middle of town it couldn't be more convenient. My room had everything you would expect and more eg fridge, kettle and more cutlery than I've had in some apartments. Don't stay here if you like the plastic Holiday Inn type of place. Added bonus they own a bar and you get discount on food and drink!

My partner and I plus two dogs stayed here overnight. The room was nicely decorated and comfortable. No problems checking in. There are plenty of food places within walking distance. Because you're right in 'town' there was a little noise but overall quite quiet. Would stay here again.

Our one night stay, booked online rather than from seeing the motel, was a real mixed bag. The good includes the central CBD location, the friendly young kid running reception, it was clean and the dogs were friendly. I'm not sure how many units have actually been refurbished (as per the photos on here and the website) but our one...

We stayed here twice, arriving late both times and in both cases, the key was left for us in the room door, as reception had finished for the day. Neither room was particularly large, but were clean and did the trick, providing a place to lay our weary heads. It the mornings, reception staff took care of us and were...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We are situated right in the heart of Picton, surrounded by shops, restaurants, cafes and bars. The Ferry terminal is only 750 metre's away and the railway statin is even closer than that. There is so much to do with the opening of the Marlborough sounds just a minutes walk from you room. You can book a fishing charter or just cruise the sounds eating seafood and having a couple good marlborough savvy's. You can book some push bikes and take in some of the beautiful scenery on offer.We have 10 units available, 4 Studio's and 6 family two bedroom units. Each unit has a carpark outside their door so need to worry about finding parking out on the street.We are pet friendly by prior arrangement so if you are moving and don't have an option of putting your pet in a kennel etc bring him/her with you! ... more   less
