Not top of the range but clean and comfortable

3.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 13 Jan 2020
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 The kitchen area is a bit outdated, the cupboards are fairly old but perfectly serviceable with a range of kitchenware.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.
Date of stay: January 2020
Room Tip: There are only 6 chalet rooms in a row it doesn’t really matter which one you get.

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!

Stayed here a night on our way down the South Island. Beautiful location, the beach across the road is absolutely divine. The accomodation itself wasn't overwhelming or interesting, just your standard little motor inn. However, the bathroom had been upgraded and was lovely and modern. The beds were incredibly comfy. The staff were friendly and welcoming. The only downside was the kettle made the tea taste a bit funny.
Overall, would happily stay here again.
