Great location and great price. Very poor room condition with banged up walls and cabinetry and loud fans in bathroom and toilet.

A good location for Picton ferry. Basic room that could do with updating. Extremely noisy throughout the night from road/ferry port and workmen leaving the motel early.

The cleaning and reception staff were friendly and the cleaner did a great job each day. Room nice and warm. We experienced rain and the only thing why we couldn’t give 100% was there is no spouting on the top level roof so I got totally soaked on shoulders and back trying to get from the landing to the first step going down. Despite this we would definitely return and recommend this motel
