A superb hotel in a rather featureless town. We only stayed one night en route from ferry to Christchurch via the Coastal Pacific rail journey. The room was large, clean and comfortable with lovely views across the harbour and down the fiord. A hotel you could stay at for a

The best thing was the lovely view of the Marina & Queen Charlotte Sound. The restaurant was excellent, everything was prepared & served beautifully. Our rooms weren't ready until nearly 4pm. The bed was hard. The bathroom needed a good clean. The whole place is tired & old now,

Response from Suzette M, Manager at Picton Beachcomber Inn
Responded 5 Dec 2018
Hi, Thank you for your review. I am sorry that we did not meet your expectations after a long day travelling. Our reception staff are not always at the front reception desk, we do have a notice on the reception desk stating should the desk be unattended, then to press the button onto the speaker phone, this calls through to the receptionist on duty. Our receptionist assist in our in house restaurant during the evenings when required, I trust this is where the receptionist was when you arrived, or may have been assisting other in house guests, but once called they would have been down to assist you with your check in. Unfortunately the elevator was shut down for safety reasons on the day of your arrival. Assistance with taking any luggage to your room would have been offered by the receptionist. Sadly this technical problem with the elevator was beyond our control and safety was a priority. We do offer continental breakfasts as room service deliveries on the night of arrival. To open our restaurant daily for breakfasts has not proven to be viable. Sorry we do not have air conditioning units in our rooms, it has not been a requirement. We did introduce osculating fans for those guests who need extra air circulation due to some exceptionally warmer weather received over the summer period.

"Room 301 was definitely the best"
"Higher floors have better views"
"upper floors with harbour view"
"The exterior doors to the room entrance aren't well soundproofed, get a room as far from the elevator as possible to minimize noise."
"Most if not all rooms have a view from the balcony."
