This hotel has a superb position looking out over Picton and into the harbour. The staff are friendly, rooms were large and clean. The bathroom of good size and a great shower available. We had a very small balcony off our room overlooking the pool area and the harbour. The bed and pillows were comfortable. There is an on-site restaurant... More

OK for one night.... Same couple of staff members seemed to do everything...Bags never got delivered to room and was told there was no lift but too late I found out there was one at the back of the hotel. I have difficulty on stairs and was on the first floor.

Ideally situated for the ferry to and from Wellington. Easy to find on the harbour. Check in was quick and easy. We had a family room deal plus breakfast. Nice balcony overlooking the pool area. Unfortunately the weather wasn't good enough to sit outside. Great for the 2 of us. The bed was comfortable. Room was spotlessly clean. Fittings are... More

The Picton Yacht Club is not quite as wonderful as its name suggests. It is a pretty standard motel in a very good location. Our check-in was not very smooth in that the receptionist didn't seem to know hotel procedures or how to check us in even though we had pre-paid reservations. He was very polite, just not very knowledgeable.... More

Although we stayed in a budget family room, it was not up to scratch. We have stayed in many hotels around Nz over 10 years, this room was probably the worst! On arrival looked through window which was filthy. Decor badly dated and shabby. Had to raise TV up to watch. Not enough in kitchen, esp for a family. Bathroom... More

Had a recent stay here on an overnight stop in Picton. Very convienent downtown location and you can walk everywhere. Friendly staff at reception. Room was large with a great view of the harbor but the carpet was a bit stained and made the room seem a bit ratty. Otherwise, it was a comfortable stay, but nothing remarkable.

Lovely space, clean and bright. Location good. Only trouble the room I was in 317 is directly above the kitchen exhaust fan so at meal times you get the humming noise from this until service is over. I don't think it's helpful to put people in there when that's always going to be the case. Otherwise a pleasant stay.

This modest hotel is a few minutes walk from the center of Picton. There's nothing fancy, but the furnishings and amenities are complete, clean, and comprehensive. Our room offered multiple electrical outlets, suitable for recharging batteries. Due to engine problems on the Wellington - Picton ferry, we arrived after midnight, but were greeted by smiling hosts who seemed genuinely pleased... More

Well priced accommodation which offered all that we needed. Over looking the marina. Comfortable surroundings. Great sleep. Easy walking to the shops and restaurants. Ample car parking too. The restaurant lacked atmosphere but staff were friendly.

The hotel was in a good spot.
