“Bliss on Broadway”
gizwee, Reviewed 14 January 2017
Wow!! home away from home, if you want the perfect motel the Broadway has it in bucket loads.
The staff are exceptional, they certainly go out of their way to make your stay, the perfect experience.
The rooms are fantastic, tastefully decorated, with everything you could possibly need.
Meticulously clean, the bathroom was amazing.
The bed was to die for, so much I asked the owner, where he brought his bed from. I wanted to take that bed home. As I have titanium rods in my back, I don't sleep well. Here I slept like a baby so I'm buying the same bed.
Great location there's a supermarket, pharmacy, coffee shop straight across the road. A 5min walk to town, so don't take your car, fabulous gift shops,the best coffee shops ever. The view what can I say, outstanding so come on! what do you have to loose.
Come and have fun in Picton, and stay at the best,motel in town the Broadway. I know you won't regret it.
Room Tip: Although the Broadway is on a corner, from inside there is no street noise, which is perfect.

Green Features: The Broadway is environmentally friendly which is awesome to see. All the staff have been trained, on green practices.

Only had one night at the Broadway, in a spacious family unit. Liked the Sky movies, good wifi, new sink and the balcony. Please note that if you have trouble carrying luggage to note this when booking, so you could ask for a ground floor unit.

All you have to do if arriving late is tell Mel the very helpful and friendly receptionist, you will be late and your room number is written on the white board and the key is in the door and lights on.
Very comfortable two bedroom unit on top floor with balcony on Port side.
Nice large bed and two singles.

The motel was well-equipped, clean, modern and comfortable with free wifi
Having only ever driven through Picton to get on or off the ferry, we decided to stay a night. Picton is a great wee place with plenty of activities available. The motel was well-equipped, clean, modern and comfortable with free wifi that worked OK. Not a lot of space in our unit however for 4 adults.
Do be prepared for noise from the trains as they roll on or off the ferries a couple of times in the night - they were pretty loud but I suspect they are heard all over town.

We loved the room which was spotlessly clean
We were welcomed warmly by the receptionist who showed us to our Executive Studio room. We requested for a quiet room and she kindly obliged which was a lovely gesture. It was cold that night but the heater was great. There was also air conditioning which is great for summer.
We loved the room which was spotlessly clean and there was a kitchen, sofa and a dining table. The bed was comfortable as well. Free WIFI which worked pretty well!
The bathroom was huge and lighting and water pressure were good.
We did hear the train as the motel was located near the rail line but to be honest, once we were asleep, it was okay and we did not hear any noise. And we were with a baby who woke up a couple of times but I was not affected by the train noise. The motel also provided ear plugs!
A value for money stay which exceeded our expectations. Picton is a lovely quiet town and if you are doing a takeaway, check out Kiwi Takeaways. Their crumbed scallops and fish are amazingly delicious!

We had a good sized room and everything was in good order
Generally everything was very good. We had a good sized room and everything was in good order. There is a train line nearby, it's not bad by any means, but could be annoying for those who get woken up by the slightest of noises. WiFi data usage was limited, which appears to be the standard for most places these days. Unfortunately, uncapped data in New Zealand has an almost negligible price difference to capped, so I fail to see why a couple more gigabytes would need to cost anything at all. In saying that, we didn't use up our data cap, but we aren't heavy users. Other people may be... No other real complaints and I would stay here again, even though the location is not quite in the middle of the town, it's just a couple of hundred metres more to walk. At least we were opposite a supermarket.
