Arrived at about 8.30pm on a rather cold night, but walked into our unit where heater had been turned on for us, so rather cosy. Everything was beautifully clean, comfy bed, and an awesome view over the harbour. Easy walk into town or to ferry.

Left kids at home with grandmother and caught the ferry to Picton. Easy walk from ferry to motel and were welcomed to a warm and comfortable room. Gorgeous views, balcony, sky tv - the movie channels were great :) We slept in - the room was so quiet! Walked and had a delicious brunch at 'Cortado' and then spent day...

We (a couple in early 30s) stayed overnight here during April, we paid $125NZD. Comfortable beds, Sky tv and a full fledged kitchen made this a good stay. Parking was a little awkward and the family next door made for a good deal of noise upon returning from dinner (not the hotels fault). Level access tiled shower and easy access...

Booked a 'seaview queen studio' for 1 night directly with the motel. On arrival we were upgraded to the upper level of the motel with fantastic views over Picton's harbour. Staff at reception were incredibly friendly. The room had a queen bed, a couple with a small kitchenette that was perfect for our picnic dinner on the balcony and breakfast...

Staff could not do enough for us, views are fantastic, rooms are modern and relaxing and we were in the middle of town. We were there for a family visit, when we arrived the owner noted that there were other people with our surname, so up graded us so that we could all be together, People to me are the...

From the moment we arrived our host,Ian, could not have been more helpful. He carried our two heavy suitcases to our spacious studio room. The room had everything we needed with a few added personal touches. Also a perfect location, easy walk to everywhere in town. Couldn't fault our accommodation and at a great price. Love Picton and love the...

Travelling in a group of six we spent a night in a three bedroom apartment in the complex in the middle of Picton. We arrived well ahead of schedule and the very obliging manager allowed us to check in early which was much appreciated. Our stay was an absolute pleasure and it was a pity we'd only allowed for one...

I booked in as a last minute getaway for two nights. I chose this apartment for its location and facilities. I could not have been happier. It was central to everything Picton has to offer, one of the cleanest places I have ever stayed and everything was as described if not better. The Kitchen was fully equipped with everything needed...

We stayed one night here on the first night of our honeymoon and were not disappointed by the service and room. Huge and comfortable bed and the balcony overlooking the harbour was perfect for sunset champagne. Check out was 10am, which was a little early as we would have loved to have soaked up the view and sunshine on the...
