The greatest variety of accommodations in Picton clusters at the western end of Waikawa Road, all within easy reach of the ferry termil and waterfront. Options include hotels, motels, hostels, and apartments, designed to suit the tastes of the multitude of people arriving from North Island, or heading there.
