Definitely recommend the Broadway Hotel. I've spend two weeks touring through the South Island, my wife and I spent two days here doing the wineries before jumping on the ferry for Wellington. The rooms are spacious and clean, the beds are comfortable and the hotel is within walking distance to Picton Town center . the staff are welcoming.

"Best Sleep in New Zealand"

davquayle, Reviewed 22 March 2017

Janet and I were on our "holiday of a lifetime" in New Zealand and had just completed our time on the north island. We decided to stay in Picton for 3 nights before starting our tour of the south island and the Broadway Motel proved to be a good choice for our short stay in the area. Our room was modern, comfortable, clean and tidy and the staff were efficient and friendly. Throughout our 4 week tour of NZ Janet and I stayed at various hotels and B&B's but I can safely say the Broadway Motel gave me the "Best sleep in New Zealand".

The studio I stayed in was very cosy & comfortable. It was well equipped with all the necessary amenities & 2 TVs, one opposite the bed, & the other in the dinning/sitting area. The scenery all around was simply breathtaking! Mel, one of the owners who ran the place is a very nice lady, & she was kind enough to allocate an upstair studio for me at my request. She was friendly, & helpful throughout my 4 nights stay. If I ever go back to Picton, I would readily choose Broadway Motel as the place to stay.

We stayed at the Broadway for one night as a stopover between Wellington and Christchurch. This was a really nice place with a central location. Large room and exceptionally clean, stocked with all the essentials. When we checked in we were given guidance for the local restaurants and activities. Very friendly and helpful reception in getting to our rooms. We would definitely stay here again.

"just good, no fancy"

An V, Reviewed 4 March 2017

Nothing to reproach here but why did they install the balcony for? It is just on the main road with a lot of traffic. ( double glazed window, no worry for sleeping, thanks). How could you imagine sipping your cup of coffee on the bistro table and chairs there? You would not even imagine you could use them to dry your swimming suits and towels as they could drop into the street easily. No way to relax enjoying any view, then we had to go out for that. So, we felt like being in a .... motel really.

We were greeted by a very friendly place after a long 8 hour journey from Christchurch. (State Highway one is currently closed so we had to go the long way round). We had booked a family room (2 separate bedrooms) and a bathroom. Very well presented and clean, warm and inviting. There was a little kitchenette as well for us for tea and coffee and keeping our food cold. Great position for walking to the shops and the ferry. Nearly opposite a supermarket as well to stock up on. Great cafes as well which were very accommodating to families.

We stayed at the Broadway Motel for six nights while walking sections of the Queen Charlotte track. We found it excellent in every way and was one of the best motels we stayed at during our six week stay in New Zealand. The motel is a modern facility and our studio room on the upper floor was roomey, comfortable & clean, with a small balcony. We found the Wifi and guest laundry to be excellent. The motel is just down the main street from both a grocery store & a petrol station and handy to both the ferry terminals & the highways out of town. Above a the motel had an air of being very well managed with the front office & house keeping staff being friendly, courteous and helpful. Our stay was great value too.

“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.

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!

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.
