We were really looking forward to our stay at this hotel. but were sadly disappointed on a number of fronts. The only good thing I can say is that the room was spacious and the is hotel centrally located. However, we were really disappointed, especially as this accommodation is rated as a four star hotel: 1. Staff could have been more welcoming - after all, out of all the accommodation options in Picton we chose to stay at the Picton Yacht Club Hotel as we wanted to help their business during the pandemic. It would have been nice to be greeted sincerely with something like: 'Nau mai, haere mai, how are you and welcome to the Picton Yacht Club Hotel, we hope you enjoy your stay' like most other places do. Manaakitanga goes a long way and good manners cost nothing. 2. Reception staff need to communicate better as it was not made clear to us that, because of covid-19, breakfast would be delivered to our room. There was some confusion here. 3. Continental breakfast needs to be of a better quality - toast was cold and only two slices, the granola looked like a child-sized portion, and it was served in disposable containers with plastic cutlery, yet the milk and instant coffee came in proper containers. We also had to ask for coffee otherwise they would not have offered it to us. Barista coffee came at an additional cost. 3. There was limited tea and coffee in the room - no Earl grey option and the sachets of coffee were rock hard - not sure how old they were. 4. The room itself was freezing as the wall heater was not adequate to heat the large room. We were pretty cold at night despite having the heater on full all night and using the two extra blankets. 5. The balcony furniture was limited to two plastic chairs with no table. Both chairs couldn't be used as they had dirty black foot prints on them. 6. There was lots of condensation on the window in the morning as there was inadequate ventilation in the room - hopefully this will get sorted if renovated. 7. I would like management to seriously take on board my comments - I did say I would be posting them on Tripadvisor. Strangely enough the review I wrote on the hotel booking site I used does not show up on the website and I am yet to have a response from the hotel. I strongly encourage all guests to be honest in their reviews. Hotels can only improve their service if they are aware of issues. The real test is how management respond to complaints. Watch this space!

Very unusual to write a review of this nature. Great location of hotel, very unwelcoming receptionist- no smile or pleasant greeting. No mention of breakfast which we had paid for. After enquiring we were "allowed" the continental breakfast. One small portion of dried muesli with a pot of vanilla yoghurt dressed up with a tinned peach slice with 2 slices of semi toasted bread, jam, marmalade and butter. NO tea/coffee offered. Comfortable room although I picked up someone's soap wrapper in the bathroom on first inspection. The lift outside our room was not operating but stacked up with loads of boxes and bags of laundry which was not a good look for a health and safety inspection. We have another booking with this hotel but we have decided to look elsewhere in Picton. Such a shame we were so disappointed this time and in need of some Rand R.

Breakfast was a total disaster. Two slices of cold, soggy undercooked toast and a small cup of juice hardly constitutes a 'continental breakfast'. Neither does one (yes one) peach slice and a a tablespoon of yoghurt to go with a bowl of dry muesli constitute a 'continental breakfast'. When I say muesli it was really just a bowl of rolled oats with a few, and I mean a few, minuscule specs of dried fruit. Hotel very run down. VERY RUN DOWN. The delaminating and chipped basin in our bathroom would in my opinion have to constitute a health risk. Staff have a cavalier and off-hand attitude towards listening to complaints. The front of house woman I spoke to on departure couldn't really give a stuff listening to my concerns. She was unhelpful and rude.

DONT DO IT! We read the mixed reviews, discussed it, we're aware sometimes theres no pleasing anyone so thought we'd give it a go in spite of this. We're now convinced any good reviews must have been written by people known to management or staff! Where do you start - The Rooms look like you could rent by the hour. The Paint is like the owner has attempted to paint the rooms themselves. Comfy beds? A King bed is two singles pushed together that are two different heights. Industry standard you replace beds every 3-5years - These were due for replacement 5years ago, the sides and springs are concaved. TV - Most Motel/Hotels Mount a TV above the desk in front of the bed - These rooms instead have a 2m x 1.2 Mirror directly infront of the bed.... Great if you'd rented the room for activities. The tiny 30" TV instead on a little table 30cm off the floor over in the corner. No power/charging points at desk. Aluminum joinery, obviously they've been to a Demo yard for replacement parts, we had a different colored window, mismatched hardware from 70's & 90's. Then there's the feature piece - The Retro Kelvinator fridge from late 60's early 70's! While its immaculate, it rattled like your neighbors Cortina in the 80's throughthe night so had to be switched off. Bathroom - This has been cheaply updated, towels are in the vanity draw with toilet paper/hair dryer. Towel Rail - there isn't one.. Wall where you'd expect to see a Towel Rail is a toilet roll holder as a centre piece on the wall? Not sure where your supposed to hang used towels but I guess people don't stay more than one night.. If you'd paid $120 per night you'd walk away saying you get what you pay for. We paid $480 for 2 rooms for 1 night - Its comparable to paying $60 for a Courtesy Car when your car is being serviced and being handed the keys to a 1984 Laser - How an operator can consider its appropriate price point for whats on offer is deplorable! We moved on to Nelson found Sails Motel - It was near half the price and like shifting from India to New Caledonia. Picton Yacht Club is the most expensive yet worst of any Motels we've ever stayed. Better facilities and value for money just about anywhere! It really is a disgrace in every way, CPG should be suitably embarrassed. Restaurant pics do not reflect the facility and this was closed. Pool & outdoor area also dirty unkept and hadnt been cleaned in numerous weeks, restaurant was closed, lift was out of order.

We stayed here for two nights. King suit with ocean view. The room was tired looking but the shower was amazing with great pressure and the glass was sparkling clean.due to covid 19 level 2 restrictions all meals were served in the room . Dinner in sat night was 5 star quilty .the breakfast was avg .sadly the person who delivered breakfast one morning did not have a mask on and was walking around the main entrance of the hotel.we dident have a couch or comfortable chairs to rest in .Our view was pretty but the balcony was not devided so anyone could walk to you room from the out side ( lock the sliding door ) .Fiona on reception over the weekend was amazing
