          We love the location of the hotel, and the decor of the rooms. The staff are incredibly friendly and hospitable. We have been many times to 'The Beachcomer' and will certainly return again! This time we were given the key back to us when we checked out so we could return to the room after going downtown to have breakfast.The rain was pouring down, so were very greatful to have shelter and tv to watch until a Shuttle took us to the train station. Brilliant service. Many thanks to all at 'The Beachcomer'. Alison Taylor

          Everything was fine. Thank you.

          Our stay was very brief - arrived at 10 pm to find envelope with room keys. Left early the next morning - I didn't meet a single member of staff during my stay - although my husband did talk to the reception staff on check -out.

          I booked this hotel because of the dinning facility and when I arrived was told that it is closed in the winter, perhaps they can put this on the website. Also when I checked in the lady requested a credit card from me to pay when my company supplied the company credit card for payment which defeats the purpose as far as I'm concerned.

          Great facilities, very clean and tidy, amazing view!

          Location great and fantastic view

          The shower was not up to the high standard of the rest of the hotel.

          close to the ferry terminals

          the coffee & milk. Worse tasting coffee I have ever had at any motel/hotel we have stayed at. What happened to trim or lite milk not every1 can have fullcream milk.

          Very helpful and friendly staff. close to amenities etc. We arrived very late at night and although there were no staff on reception prior arrangement went flawlessly. We would happily stay again.

          Enjoyable stay. Very comfortable. Appreciated cleanliness to an excellent standard. Comfortable beds. Good location

          Tv old fashioned. Flat screen be easier to use

          The balcony was large, but the lack of view and cost spoilt it.

          This was a relatively expensive stay and I was genuinely very disappointed. They claim to provide a view over the Sounds. They don't tell you about the carpark in front of your 'view', including the next door hotel's wall/doors to the side view. All the balconies have similar views. They claimed my spa bath room to be the best! The services were poor, (such as no room service dinner dining and no set closing time for their very expensive restaurant, they just say about 7.30pm or when they get quiet. So there is a risk of getting no food because things close early in Picton. Its an old property they have tried to modernise but my room smelt of 'old' carpet. It feels like you're in a block of concrete flats with bare steps, and all external entrances. I felt let down here as soon as I checked in!

          Fantastic location, room was tidy

          Restaurant, only 1 waitress took forever to order and get meal, then wanted dessert said would be couple minutes but after 15 minutes, felt sorry for waitress, not enough staff...shower in room was broken and plug was bent so couldnt use electric blanket

          Very comfortable and clean.

          Doors to rooms were a bit flimsy and could feel more secure if they were more substantial with better locks.

        • Family with children
          8.8

          Was very comfortable and clean, quiet, with great views of the harbour

          The showers could do with updating, it as more like a sprinkle.

          Easy walk to cafe and bars Bed was very comfortable Clean and tidy unit

          The Water pressure in shower was pathetic

          The web site for the Picton Beachcomber stated there was a heated outdoor pool. I chose the hotel for my son and grandaughter (aged 6) because of the pool facility. Unfortunately, the pool was freezing cold. I believe all other aspects of the hotel were good.
