I have travelled around New Zealand alot and this was definitely my favourite place. We ended up staying an extra night, it was so romantic with beautiful scenery that myself and Brit ended up engaged. Thank you for having us and making us feel extremely welcome. We will definitely be back. Say hi to Monster and Maz for us. Thanks again AAAA++++

      Super area for a few days of routine life. Cons: No vodafone network and no nearby shop though. Highly recommend booking a car or any suitable transportation means in advance. The nearest restaurant/cafe is about 8 to 9 km off so make provision for food. Pros: staff super helpful and really nice They help plan any trip/tour or buke rentals Really quiet place if you love the natural landscape and views Has an open swimming pool 24/7 Clean and well kept property Very cheap accommodation for all budget range Fridge tv a small lounge with some sofas available for all Stove and other kitchen utilities available if you want to cook something.

      They stayed up late for us to check in, we brought an extra child which they accomodated no problem, and the room was very comfortable.

      It was great, we arrived late and left early so didn't check out all of the facilities, but staff were very friendly and the room was comfortable and very clean. Good shower, lots of pressure.

      staff

      This is definitely a motel, certainly not 4 star in my opinion. The staff are very friendly and helpful, they're the best part of the motel. This is a very isolated place, with no reception. The closest town is 20mins away havelock (which is tiny too), then picton 30mins away. If you're looking for an isolated place next to a farm then this is for you. if not, this is not for you.

      It was really a good stay. The owner of the motel was very nice. This motel is a little far from town, so it'll be good to have your own transport. But the surrounding and everything was good! With mountains right in front and behind us, the air was so fresh!

      I was staying with my wife and an infant baby. The staff service was excellent. Absolutely loved the location as it was in the middle of the forest, away from the crowds and the noise, yet not too far from Picton. If I were to go bakc to Picton, I would definitely stay here again.

      Take the zig zag road to sleep in clean comfort.”

      It is a ways out of Picton but when you have the time... enjoy the road less traveled.

      taking the last ferry from wellington to picton we picked this place to stay as it was listed in picton. after taking a winding goat path of epic proportions for about a half hour we found ourselves arriving in the dark and with no place to get a meal. we were warmly greeted and given eggs and bread and butter from the owners own kitchen. a perfect late night meal in our large spacious, modern (in both design and colour) room with a kitchenette. the best bed i have been on in a hotel for that price range and nice eco friendly products from new zealand. seeing the place in daylight made the out-of-the-way distance worth while... gorgeous look outs along inlets and valleys.

      had an absolutely beautiful stay at the linkwater. it has a superb position on the charlotte sound which has some great walks. we were upgraded a studio apartment and it was very modern with a great bed. the staff were very helpful with some recommendations as to what to do in the local area and also lent us a fishing rod for use on one of the many wharfs on the sound. cant really find anything negative to say about the place. would recommend to any one of any age. oh yeah.... my girlfriend loved the fact that they have electric blankets as standard.
