We stayed overnight after a long day traveling. We were welcome by very friendly, helpful management. Perfect accommodation for a family of four. The unit was warm, clean and comfortable. We would recommend this as the place to stay while you are in Picton.

Never having stayed in New Zealand before did not know what the places and people would be like. We need not have worried as we had the warmest welcome from here. The knowledge of the local eateries and places to visit was outstanding. The room was really great, clean and had everything we needed. If ever you visit Picton I...

Good hotel for almost everything. Free wifi but slow. The owner is nice and recommended a good restaurant called Barn. He was keen to see customers leaving good comments on Tripadviser, which is fair to me.

The night was very good. The staff were very friendly. The rooms are very good for the price, when I saw for the first time the room I couldn't believe that is for that price. Very clean. Good location, next to many restaurants.

I had stayed here once before when it was called Americano and didnt think much of the service or rooms.

Never during my stay in NZ was I able to access what I consider "normal Internet" as a silly American. But I was given THREE Internet vouchers here because my first voucher ran out. The bed and shower are very nice and the kitchenette has all the necessities.

A very accommodating venue, easy access, friendly people, the $99 Studio was perfect for what we needed for a two night stay back and forth during our travels to the lower South. The Restaurant they referred us too was top notch! We would stay there again. thanks Julie S

This motel is in a really great place, close to the center of town, the ocean, and some hiking. The staff was super informative, helpful and friendly. They helped us figure out what there was to do in Picton, and they didn't overly stress paid activities. Picton was also a great little place to stay. Beautiful town.
