        Location, Staff, Comfort of room

        Admirals Lodge was a really cosy place to stay. The location was great and the rooms were lovely. The staff were extremely friendly and rooms were clean. Our stay was very enjoyable due to the comfort of the rooms. The decor was very nice and felt like home, it was so comfortable. The help yourself breakfast is a very nice idea and it was delicious. A recommended place to stay if you go to Picton.

        central clean and nice staff

        Admirals lodge was clean and central to Picton town however it wasn't full and we were placed next to another "family". We soon found out just how thin the walls were so it was a very noisy place to get a rest. Unfortunately there wasn't alot of breakfast to chose from and not enough fruit.

        A motel where the manager makes the difference!”

        We booked this motel as it was convenient for our journey on the way back to the North Island. Admirals Lodge is not a new motel but the room was spotlessly clean and offered all we needed. The big bonus of this motel is the friendly manager who really went out of her way to make our stay a pleasant one. We were given an upgrade, she moved her car to allow us to park our boat, she started breakfast earlier than usual to allow us to have something to eat before getting to the ferry. The hospitality she offered was absolutely second to none!

        Good location in Picton, easy to find. The owner was super helpful with late check-in. Best continental breakfast I've seen in NZ. Rooms are comfy, buildings a bit dated but the price reflects that. Will be staying again in future.

        Friendly staff, comfortable room and location

        Rather than driving straight Picton after the Cook Strait ferry crossing, I stayed here for one night. The host, Dellis Ellison, made the stay very enjoyable with suggestions of where to visit and eat in and around the town. The hotel breakfast was very good and I can thoroughly recommend this hotel.

        the only reason why people stay in picton seems to be the picton-wellington ferry. this b&b serves the purpose - it is clean, the room is big, the shower is good, the breakfast is ok (could be better).

        Breakfast is included in the price although the Agoda booking said it is not. Simple continental fare but more than sufficient. Bed was comfortable but room was rather small though it was tastefully decorated. The wifi service was fast and stable. Overall, it was still an enjoyable experience staying two nights at this place. Hotel is located quite close to the Interislander ferry terminal.

        We had a comfortable and clean room. The hotel reception Gayle was helpful with information. The breakfast provided was very basic with just self-help bread, jam and coffee. Gaye recommended some near by restaurants which turned out to be very nice indeed. The lodge is very close to the sea front tour agents and you can book the tours easily. I particularly enjoyed trekking around the queen Charlotte sound. Very beautiful indeed.
