Such a beautiful apartment in the most perfect position. We stayed in apartment no. 2 and it was such a lovely stay. Perfectly suited to our family of 4. Clean, modern, beautifully decorated and awesome showers! From the living area and master bedroom there are breathtaking views of the marina. We could have sat all day watching the ferries arrive...

A weekend stay in Picton was made all the more special with stunning views of Picton foreshore, Marina and looking down the Marlborough Sounds. Perfect location, very easy to park up and walk to Restaurants and walkways. With the sun streaming in and the heat pump on, you can forget its frosty outside this week. The facilities and decor are...

Wonderful, spacious and contemporary apartment with a fully equipped kitchen and washer/dryer, and complementary use of the Park Regis pool. Within walking distance of the ferry and the Picton restaurants. Highly recommended!

Couldn't imagine a more perfect spot. Fittings, kit out and atmosphere divine. Superb value for travelling families. View stunning and very quiet apartment. Lots of space for the kids, bedding ultra comfortable.

We had a night in the apartments on a recent trip to New Zealand, and found the apartments through Trip Advisor - noting the great reviews. As mentioned - they can be a little tricky to find, checking in through the motel on the main road - but that was a minor issue. The 2 BR apartments are lovely. Fully...

Hi thanks for taking the time to respond and glad you enjoyed your stay. I am glad the weather came good for you. I am really sorry if the man at the front desk was rude. As we are unmanned apartments we rely on the hotel next door to do the check in procedure for us so this is slightly...

Beware of staying in properties managed by absent money hungry managers. From the beginning things didn't seem right. We could not find the reception to this place. There were no instructions on my booking confirmation which I had booked on the apartment complex website. Frustrated after driving up and down the street, we finally asked at the Park Regis only...

This is a stunning apartment with a fantastic view over the harbour. I would thoroughly recommend this gorgeous unit. Check in for room keys is at the Mecure Hotel next door, open air parking is at the hotel too.

Its tricky to find and you have to check in at the hotel next door, but these apartments are awesome. I could live in this apartment. Layout was great, lovely decor and sittings and absolutly glorious view of the harbour. These apartments are right in the thick of it, but we didnt find them loud. You neednt look any further...
