Amazing views, strategic location”
My husband and I loved our stay in the Harbour View Motel. We got a room on the top floor, the view was astonishing. The room was clean and comfortable, they thought about everything, including a small table and chairs outside to have a glass of wine and enjoy the afternoon. The kitchen is small but has everything you need to cook a meal (we were tired of fried food so we cook steak and vegetables). Convenient place to park the car in front of the room. Walking distance to the grocery store, the bay, and the ferry terminal. The location was perfect. I recommend staying at this place if you are visiting Picton.
Beautiful view of the harbour, clean, quiet, comfortable and good facilities in kitchenette.”
We found our Harbour View apartment very comfortable. The view of the Picton Harbour is stunning. The friendly staff member ensured check in was a simple process. We were quickly shown to our apartment which we found to be spotlessly clean. There is s kitchenette which pretty much has everything you require to cook up a meal, if you wish. The beds were very comfortable and each had an electric blanket. An electric wall mounted heater ensured the room was cosy warm. Good quality soaps, shampoos and conditioners are supplied. Plenty of towels and a towel dryer is mounted in the bathroom. We appreciated the guest laundry which also includes a large clothes dryer. We found Harbour View to be very tranquil. No trafic noise and well sound-insulated walls. We highly recommend Harbour Views. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Marianne and Paul, Hobart Tasmania
Perfection in Picton ”
Our stay in Picton was sensational. Ian and Kym were magnificent hosts- helpful, friendly and even found us a room elsewhere when we decided to stay in Picton an extra night and they were fully booked. We would highly recommend harbour view motel to any traveller! Thank you Ian and Kym for your hospitality.
Very clean and nice”
We stopped over in Picton to catch the ferry up North the following day. The greeting we received at Harbour View Motel was warm and friendly. The room was very clean and very thoughtfully set up. The amenities were very nice as well. The only problem we experienced was one of the window couldn't be closed properly and the room became drafty for our daughter who was sleeping on the sofa bed which was next to the window.
Clean, great views & location”
We were in Picton for just a short period to catch the ferry the next day to Wellington. We chose this hotel because of its location, but also wanted a clean modern room with great views, and sure enough, we got what we wanted. The rooms were clean, lots of cooking supplies and the views on the balcony was great. The staff/owner also dropped us off at the Ferry terminal the next morning. The hotel is walking distance to town and hiking trail, although Picton is a very small town. High water pressure. Good value for money. CONS: Parking is tight with limited space. There are 2 buildings. Some rooms have better views that others. Free wifi but kept getting disconnected.
This was a great place to stay in Picton. The room was great with a small kitchenette which is handy. We had a really nice deck with wonderful view of Picton Harbor. It was a 5 minutes walk to get into the town and some nice shops and restaurants and groceries. Also so convenient to catch boat out to Queen Charlotte Track for great hiking. also Only a 30 mins to Havlock for some wonderful mussels. Don’t miss this hotel.
Good all-round experience”
the harbour view motel is located close to the harbour in picton, nz. the manager/owner was very friendly and very helpful. we were concerned that, being on a main road into picton, it might be noisy but it was very quiet all night. the rooms are well appointed and spacious. we had no complaints.
This hotel is in an idyllic location. Could just sit there all day and watch the harbour activity - get top floor. Within easy walking distance of restaurants, ferry terminal and foreshore. Very steep driveway though and challenging to park car and reverse/drive out (really!). Very helpful receptionist and even the cleaner was cheerful. Very picturesque spot is Picton!
Perfect in every way. ”
Perfect location - just 1 block from the Centre of Picton, fabulous views across the harbour, friendly and helpful staff, clean comfortable rooms with everything needed for your stay. Will definitely be back.
Best Hotel/Motel Service on our Trip to NZ”
Of all the hotels we stayed at on our recent trip to NZ, Harbour View stood out. The lodging is only about 5 minutes from the InterIslander Ferry site. Caryn, the owner was kind enough to even pick us up since we didn't know exactly where the motel was located. Saved 40.00 on taxis because each hotel room in Wellington & Auckland we needed to take a taxi! The hospitality and cleanliness of the room was fantastic especially after our stays at certain hotels in the cities just mentioned. The experience brought up a lot of youthful memeories. Thanks Caryn & Noddy for the hospitality!
Great little hotel with great big views”
we enjoyed our stay-- beautiful harbor view with nice little balcony which was perfect for breakfast. Nice selection of teas and coffees. Beds were comfortable and room was large. Picton is a lovely little village with a great museum on the Edward Stark (beside the ferry terminal). Lively bar scene in the evening. The owners of the hotel are warm and inviting!
A Very Solid Choice for a Stay in Picton NZ”
The staff was very helpful in showing us how the laundry worked (and it was very reasonably priced, too). She also gave us very good recommendations for restaurants. The hotel is well-located for doing anything in Picton by foot. The view is stunning.
Fantastic views, superb room”
Harbour View offered a lovely break from extreme weather and we could enjoy the views of Picton from inside whilst staying dry. We were disappointed to only have one night.
The proprietor, "Noddy", went out of his way to assist with every request. He even dropped us at the bus stop in his private vehicle at no charge, at what was an unusually early hour. I cannot speak too highly of this place. We were treated like friends, rather than customers. If you are looking for a place to stay in Picton, South Island, look no further. A huge nod to Noddy and his wife. Superb.
Great location in Picton. Everything in easy walking distance. Room was comfortable and spacious and well equipped. Bathroom had nice fixtures. View from balcony was nice.
Hometown comfort, clean and exceptional service!”
This place is an amazing place to stay. We were in the 2 bedroom suite. Very clean, spacious, beautiful interior design and amazing harbour view. The reception is incredibly attentive and welcoming. Will return 100%. Thank you Harbour view Motel.
The Harbour View Motel is in a perfect location, it was only a short walk from the motel to either town or the marina. The view from our unit down the Sound was unbelievable and the unit was well set up.
Tidy, well appointed motel with great views from higher rooms”
Stayed on the top floor, great views over the pretty Picton marina. Spacious room and comfy bed. Would happily recommend.
Love this place!”
Could not have asked for friendlier staff and a more beautiful view. Would definitely recommend and plan to stay here next time we are in Picton!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here - the view was spectacular; the motel was easy to find; the staff were very helpful; the room was a delight - well done Harbour view
