Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I was passing through on my way to Wellington and overnighting in Picton before catching the ferry. I was met on arrival here and the room was warm and nicely set up in anticipation of my arrival. The bed was warm and comfortable and I would very happily stay here again. The motel is right opposite the boat ramp In summary, great value for money

We so appreciated the thought and care that has gone into the renovations and modernising. The welcome was all round terrific too. Good bed, new shower, quiet and comfortable. Really good nights’ sleep too! Minutes from the bay! Highly recommend this!

Comfortable / clean accommodation to stay within the Picturesque Picton (Waikawa), New Zealand. The owners are most beautiful souls which is an extra bonus. Would stay again and highly recommend to all. Only down side is the wifi. Comes and goes. But this is national issue within New Zealand. Travelling for work and relaying on good connections - its annoying at this. But if you are purely on holidays and enjoy gadgets free time - its Paradise!

What a lovely motel. we got in at midnight. Owners left key in the door and home made shortbread. We stayed there overnight on way to Nelson. Very clean and tidy. Shower was brilliant. The owners were very friendly and helpful. Next trip to Nelson, we will stay a couple of days and visit the Picton area. across the road from the beach, bbq ,boat ramp. Would recommend to anyone stopping in Picton to book in a stay a day or more.

One of many great memories of our family reunion over the Waitangi Day break 2020 was the absolutely outstanding accommodation and hospitality provided by Colin and Tomoko Lowe at their Beachside Sunnyvale Motel overlooking the beautiful Waikawa Bay This motel that has everything you could possibly need in a home-a-way-from-home; crockery, cutlery, cooking utensils, even egg cups and wine glasses, extremely comfortable beds, a pristine bathroom and free WiFi. If you're planning a holiday in the Marlborough Sounds, we can highly recommend you stay at the Beachside Sunnyvale Motel Michael & Kate Lynch

We only stayed one night. The kitchen area is a bit outdated, the cupboards are fairly old but perfectly serviceable with a range of kitchenware. A proper size electric cooker and fridge. The owners have obviously been updating areas and the bathroom is modern and nice and the small lounge area is comfortable with patio doors to a small seating area out the back. There is a table and chairs out the front of the chalet to sit out as well as a decked area with table and chairs where you get a view of the harbour. There is a laundry room with a washer and a dryer that you can use for a small cost. The laundry room could do with a tidy up to make it look a little nicer. Not luxury but little welcoming touches. Homemade biscuits were left for us in the room and milk in the fridge. Colin the owner came out to great us when we arrived. He was extremely helpful and friendly. Nice to get such a warm welcome. Too far to walk into town but a nice quiet area.

If it was the mid 70s the decor would be top notch. Bed old soft and uncomfortable. Cockroach removed from kitchen. Window sills dirty. Wifi slow. I could put up with this if it was $25 cheaper. Out side the units messy, All quite easy fixes. Upside, host very nice, but after 30 years guess they’re just capitalising On the high demand Picton summer market. So why change?

Six older style motel units 2 mins walk from Queen Charlotte Sound. Owner friendly & welcoming. Very quiet, spotlessly clean and modernized with new bathroom, comfortable bed and full kitchen facilities.

Going through an upgrade from 70s modern but this little gem is worth considering. Obliging hosts and a great location give this motel its value. Wifi could be improved but for the price it is hard to beat. Bathroom upgraded and all amenities required. Give it some thought.

Beautiful location, great price and the units are well equipped (with super comfy beds too!). We stayed here two nights for the wine and food festival. What really makes this place is the owners. Really lovely people and willing to go out of their way to help. Snoopy the dog was also really friendly and loved a good belly scratch!
