It is conveniently located close to the center of town with an easy walk. The takeaway around the corner makes awesome burgers and quite cheap too! The bed was very comfortable and the shower was a real suprise. The pressure was fantastic...best out of numerous motels we had stayed in til then! The only thing we didn't like...not being backpackers and more into the 60's age bracket...was not having a kettle in the room so we could have a quiet cup of tea before heading out.

I didn’t catch the managers name but he was awesome. Friendly and helpful even though I got in pretty late and disturbed his peace. (Sorry!!) Comfy bed, space in the rooms so you don’t feel like a sardine and in a good spot for people coming and going from Picton. Would stay again. Thanks!

The property was handy to town and the Ferry. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly, and the lace was clean and a good deal for the cost.

Amazing! For the price we paid couldn’t fault it. I had prepared our family for a cheap place to rest our heads to break our journey. I was prepared for grotty but overwhelmed with clean, fresh and overflowing with a family atmosphere. Not to mention the amazing cheap rate included breakfast, soup and chocolate pudding with ice cream. Will recommend 100%.
