A fantastic spot. Not what you would expect in a rural farmland setting and an easy drive along the winding but picturesque Queens Charlotte drive. The rooms a re large and clean. Plenty of activities Close by Tidy and friendly.

Stopped here after leaving the Inter Island ferry. Far better than staying in Picton also gives a good start for our onward journey to Nelson the following day. Rooms are spacious and well decorated and include a kitchenette and table. The bed was comfortable and the room was quiet despite being near a main road. There was no traffic noise...

I'd never stayed in a motel and was very pleasantly surprised. Spacious room, very clean and comfortable. Service was friendly and the hotel is just outside Picton, but a good location for an onward journey to Nelson or the Abel Tasman area. There is also a pool, but it's exposed to the road so we didn't try it.

About 25 of us chose to stay with Adam and Melissa for 3 nights while we enjoyed a Marlborough College(co-ed) reunion of the mid-fifties. What a wonderful place, and we were made so welcome. It was a great base for us all to do our daily outings, Some stayed in the motels, and some in backpackers, who all said it...

The Linkwater lodge motel is a fantastic place to stay that isn't far from Picton ferry terminal. We stayed one night and was very happy with our room. The motel is modern and very clean. The staff were very friendly too. There is free parking and free wi-fi also.
