The Harbour View Motel in Picton deserves its popularity. It is ideally located for anyone wishing to catch one of the ferry services to Wellington. Our room was very well equipped, spotlessly clean and freshly decorated. We had a great view of the harbour from our room which was on the top level. We found the staff to be very...

Very friendly staff. Amazing view with a nice balcony to enjoy it from, very close to shops and restaurants. Decent (clean and modern) kitchenette, bathroom and beds. Only walking distance to quay, museum, aquarium. I highly recommend staying here.

Its a bit of a mission getting a park close to your room. But thats because the motel is built in a step like fashion up the hill which of course gives it that great Harbour And Marina view, so you dont worry about it The rooms are modern, well sized for two with all the amenities youd expect but...

We (5) all stayed here while doing the Blenheim half marathon and found from the first contact thought to arriving, staying and leaving - everything meet our expectations. We had 2 units which were next to each other and were clean and well equipped with everything that we needed. We have rebooked for next year and look forward to that...

We were in an off site room which was wonderful. Delayed crossing in the ferry due to weather, but this suite more than made up for it. Absolutely quite with room to spread out and brown face towels and other touches were very thoughtful. Great view of the marina from the room and large balcony. Wished we had more time...

We stayed in the off site three bedroom two bathroom apartment. The apartment was very spacious, very clean & modern. The view across the street from our balcony, of the Picton Harbour was to die for. We were picked from the ferry terminal which is about 4 blocks from the apartments by Ian. He showed us how everything worked in...

We spent 4 nights in a wonderful apartment. We were two couples and the facilities were perfect for us. The appliances were all of high quality and supplies provided for the dishwasher etc. When Ian collected us from the ferry were pleased to learn that we had been upgraded to a better apartment on the front of the harbour with...

Immaculately clean room with stunning views over the port. The rooms are very well equipped and comfortable- the price is very reasonable given the standard of the room. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Highly recommend this motel- the best one we have stayed at in New Zealand.

Stayed for two nights in off site apartment. Apartment was very large and comfortable with free fast wifi and many tv channels. Apartment was very clean and bed was comfortable. Only issue I had was that it got quite cold and the bedroom could have done with a heater. That said, there was a portable heater in lounge room and...
