The service at this motel was fantastic. The staff were very friendly and helpful, and the room was absolutely comfortable. Although it was very cold outside, the room is set up so that it can be nice and toasty warm when you return!
The bed was huge, soft and clean. The bathroom was also great. We got a room with a spa and it was a very nice treat. I really liked the little fudge chocolates they left for us as well! The two TVs was nice too.
The location was also very nice. There is not much to the main street in Picton, so it was good to be within about a minutes walk from anything, or about 5 minutes from the waterfront. We could even see the sounds from our room.
It was also nice to have the supermarket over the road too because it has a respectable wine selection and plenty more chocolates!
We had travelled to Picton on the Ferry in the morning and left via Ferry two nights later. You don't need a car to enjoy the area, but if you have one there is plenty of parking.

I couldn't rate the comfort and service at the Broadway higher
Booked to come into Picton with my family on the ferry at 11.30pm, my first criteria for a motel was that it be within easy walking distance. On booking at the Broadway and explaining our late arrival I received a cheery "no trouble" acknowledgement email saying they were used to late arrivals and explaining their procedures.
In fact due to bad weather our scheduled ferry arrival was put off till 3am. When I updated the Broadway (to stress we still wanted the room!) I was greeted with a confirmation that they would keep the room and an offer of an 11am late check out. A welcome sweetener to what was turning into a bit of a nightmare trip.
In fact, on arriving by foot at the Broadway at 4am (along with several other parties), the manager was up and directed us to our 2 bedroom unit. What bliss. A beautiful, spacious and quiet suite. (So quiet I had to wake the children at 10.20am).
As an added bonus the shower was fantastic, and the plunger coffee provided good. I couldn't rate the comfort and service at the Broadway higher.

Very clean and spacious. Comfy sofa for relaxing. Plenty of hanging space and good lighting. We liked the fact we were given lots of ground coffee but could have done with a hotplate - but there is a microwave. Free Wifi has a limit on it that ran out VERY quickly which didn't happen in other places. Not fair to criticise this one place as a few of the others we stayed in had limits but loads had unlimited Wifi. We had to sit outside the library here to get it. When away from home for 6 weeks or more do need this sort of facility particularly when asked to review them on here within hours of leaving. Our booking confirmaton states free Wifi but doesn't mention the limit and it was something we made a criteria when we internet booked via Booking.com. However this may be a very personal gripe and I would certainly stay here again. Picton is lovely and the motel is easy walking distance to the little town and lots of lovely walks. You wouldn't think you were in a ferry port. Found Seabreeze a good place to eat - lovely fish.

Warm welcome and friendly staff. Good clean basic motel. Location at the edge of downtown is good (10 mins walk to the foreshore). However, note that the north-south rail line is right outside the back of the motel. The occasional train trundles through and makes its presence felt largely through rumbling. We are early risers but late sleepers might dislike that. As seems common on the South Island, internet service is metered; the free allocation for each stay is 200 MB, and many people's smartphones easily eat through that in one day. Additional MB are reasonably priced, fortunately ($5).

The rooms were clean, comfortable and inviting. There was a GREAT shower (not something that we had found in some of the places that we had stayed in). We were able to wash, dry and iron several pieces of clothing - nice to have something right out of the dryer!
The staff couldn't have been nicer - we appreciated their help in booking a tour to Doubtful Sound. All and all a great place to stay. Julia & Steve

We found it to be close enough to Town to buzz up and down, handy to bush walks and yet still quiet.
We recently spent 3 nights at the Broadway Motel, and can find no fault. Our room was beautifully serviced and the staff very pleasant.
The Spa Bath a real bonus. We found it to be close enough to Town to buzz up and down, handy to bush walks and yet still quiet.
Thank you all for making our "get-away-long-weekend" a very enjoyable one !!!

From the moment we arrived until we left our experience was superb
We were looking for a 'pampered' night for our last one after our southern road trip before back to Wellington, reality and the kids :)
After quite a bit of searching my partner fell in love with the description of the honey moon suite (especially the spa bath) at the Broadway Motel Picton. From the moment we arrived until we left our experience was superb, the rooms presentation was outstanding and all amenities were just as required.
Situated right in the centre of town all amenities were a short drive (or walk) away, yet the room was still quiet and relaxing.
The description of the room and the photo's we found on line were accurate - always a worry when you look for accommodation online. The proprietors were very friendly and well accommodating!
Thank you for a wonderful end to our trip!
Room Tip: The honeymoon spa bath rooms are the bomb!

Good shower and clean and tidy room, quiet, and cover for the motorbike.
We stayed one night - arrived without a booking late in the afternoon - owners very friendly and accommodating and even gave us a discount because the only room they had left was for a family and there were only two of us.
Good shower and clean and tidy room, quiet, and cover for the motorbike. Supermarket across the road, garage close by and just a short stroll to shops and waterfront.
They were helpful with advice on food and entertainment in the area.
We will definitely stay there again.

The room was fabulous. Very modern and clean with a really comfortable bed. The shower was particularly impressive being of a wet room walk in style and a very generous size.
Some other motels we stayed at in NZ did not have a teapot, the Broadway did and we were very grateful because tea just doesn't taste the same when it's brewed in a cup!

This place is worth staying at so give it a try.
We stayed one night after crossing on the ferry from Wellington (three hour trip). The room was clean and well appointed. Bathroom facilities were clean and the towels were soft. Bead comfortable. Nearby are excellent shops and cafes in walking distance from the motel. The Owner was helpful and gave us some useful information on traveling to the West Coast of the South Island. This place is worth staying at so give it a try.

I stayed for one night on a wet cold evening after getting off the ferry. I was greeted very warmly by one of the owners and taken to my room. The heater was already on so it was nice and cosy for me. The rooms are really clean and nicely decorated, perfect for a nights stay to break up a long trip or for longer stays.

It was by far the best place we stayed at on our trek
We arrived in Picton fresh off the ferry from Wellington, and were at the motel door in less than five minutes. We were greeted by Jill, who is a wonderful and refreshing woman. She walked us to our room and gave us a tour of our room and recommended some good places to eat. Our room was very clean, tastefully decorated, and very comfortable. It was by far the best place we stayed at on our trek down the islands. We met a another guest in the parking lot, and he raved about the motel, so we felt really good about our choice to stay there. It was walking distance to the harbor, a park, a mini golf course, several restaurants, the supermarket, and a gas station. We wished we had stayed there longer than one night. They had 110V plugs available, which was really convenient. I had also previously sent them an email as we were initially planning on taking the later ferry, and I received a response to my questions very quickly. You can tell the people who run this motel are very proud of it and their customer service.

Excellently designed room with great views of Picton from the upstairs verandah. Absolutely clean with excellent fittings and joinery. The complimentary chocolates left on the table for us was a nice touch and the coffee sachets supplied were a brand we had not seen before in a motel and were easily the best tasting we had experienced. Very friendly staff and altogether excellent.

The shower was probably the best I have EVER had
We stayed just one night at the Broadway and found it excellent. We paid for the night on Wot If, so check in took all of one minute. Heating was on when we arrived, room was modern clean and comfortable with everything you need (except no tea towel which was strange - but sure they just forgot). The shower was probably the best I have EVER had (better than ours at home!).
Good location, all in walking distance to town, cafes and sea side. Definitely worth checking out!

It's really inspiring to see some hotels can get it so right!
An excellent motel in Picton. It's really inspiring to see some hotels can get it so right! Welcoming owners with good environmental policies, clean and comfortable rooms, with all the mod cons including a good range of Sky channels. Situated on a corner, I was pleased it was also so peaceful and rooms were well insulated for sound and weather. Meal options are offered, and the motel also has a discount arrangement with a local pub for a discount at dinner. (However, we walked down to Café Cortado for dinner - one of the few Picton places open after the recent earthquakes in Seddon). The Broadway Motel is highly recommended and I will return.

We enjoyed a peaceful and quiet two night's stay
My wife and I spent Friday and Saturday night in this motel. The staff were wonderful, friendly and helpful without being overfriendly or intrusive. Our unit had a separate living area, a large double bed and a well appointed bathroom with a spa. We did not bring our car on this trip so were pleased to find the place was close enough to the town centre and the ferry terminals for this to not be a problem. Despite our stay taking place during a weekend we enjoyed a peaceful and quiet two night's stay and would certainly return here by choice.
Room Tip: We were upstairs and I think that creates more privacy and quiet. We were in the middle of the block...

Our host had already warmed the sizeable and well set up unit.
After a 6am start from Tauranga, a 5hr plus drive, and the ferry crossing, we were looking forward to a nice evening in Picton. Our host had already warmed the sizeable and well set up unit. We asked about the various eating establishments, and our host's recommendation was chosen, and our meal thoroughly enjoyed. The motel has good off street parking, and just a few minutes walk to the centre of the town. We had a great nights sleep, and choosing to have a break in our journey was the way to go. A great stay on all aspects.
