Gem of Picton
Amazing hotel with more than enough space for two people and fantastic location close to restaurants and bars in Picton.

Good 6.0
Waiting for the Ferry
When we arrived at motel I thought I had just arrived at Bates Motel. The rooms were very dated. Bed was extremely uncomfortable and old and room was very dated. The wifi was non existent but the room was clean but did smell very musty. But unfortunately in Picton there is slim pickings for decent accommodation that isn't overpriced. The owners of the other hand were very nice and accommodating.

Simple but good
Great local hotel near the CBD. Basic and simple with no thrills but super nice and friendly staff. The kids liked the little playground out back. We enjoyed it!

Great option if passing through
The hotel and staff were excellent. It is off the beaten path, so make sure you either book a shuttle or be prepared to walk. We walked, but it was a bit of a haul with our luggage.
