We were really impressed, a well appointed and comfortable room with stunning views overlooking the Picton harbour. The managers were warm and friendly, showing us to our room and recommending good places for dinner.

We had a 2 bedroom apartment on the 5th floor with views of the marina and surrounding which was great even under a drizzly weather. The apartment is well appointed with all the amenities you would need. Great to share as you have 2 separate bedrooms and bathrooms. The location is great and walking distance to everything you need. You...

We really enjoyed our stay here. Our room had a perfect view of the harbor, it was gorgeous! We enjoyed the balcony! Our room was very comfortable, clean. Short walk to stores or restaurants. We had rented a vehicle that was a "bit of a beast" as one person said. So, parking was and adventure. But, we did it without...

This IS The Harborview, and on that it does deliver. There are great views of the harbor. Unfortunately, at some point you will have to turn around, and that is a decidedly different prospect. Our room had furniture from the 80's, not just in style but literally from the 80's. All 3 chairs were covered in cracked leather from several...

We loved our stay here. The owners were delightful, the view from our balcony was amazing, the room was clean and comfortable. It was a short walk into town and to the ferry terminal. Highly recommend!

We really enjoyed staying at the Harbour View Motel. The managers were friendly and very accommodating. Our room (#10) was at the top and had an incredible view and a nice balcony with chairs and table overlooking the harbour. The location was great for walking into town for dinner, shopping or taking our boat to Marlborough Sound--everything not more than...

This is a small motel located five minutes away from the ferry terminal. Diane picked us up at the ferry terminal and showed us to a studio room with a great view of the Harbor and surrounding mountains. The room was very nice, clean and we'll appointmedo with a small kitchenette. It is located very close to downtown shops and...

Friendly front desk set the tone for a nice stay at the Harbour View before attacking the Queen Charlotte Track. Quiet, fine bed and plenty of hot water in the shower. It's a bit of a walk uphill from the ferry but it's worth the view of the harbour, right?

Stayed for 2 nights before taking ferry to North Island. The motel is ideally situated for activities within Picton and only 5 minutes drive to the ferry terminals. We were able to walk to most things so didn't have to find and pay for parking. Be aware the parking spaces are quite small and for some rooms involve driving up...

We had a corner studio room in the upper building and appreciated the spacious room with sweeping views and dread breezes. Room was clean and there is a washer and dryer on site for guest use (coin operated). Easy walk to restaurants and trails and ferry Only complaint was the bed sagged and we kept rolling to the middle
