Boasting stunning harbour views, the Mercure has been launched following the re-development of the former Yacht Club Hotel Picton. A further 17 rooms were added to the hotel’s original 31 which were upgraded to international Mercure standard. The hotel now offers a diverse range of stylish accommodation including deluxe Pool View rooms, Ocean View rooms and some luxurious apartments overlooking the entrance to the Queen Charlotte Sound.
Located on Picton’s harbour front, the hotel is just 1km from both the ferry terminal (which brings visitors from Wellington) and train station, minutes from the local airport and in walking distance of the Picton CBD and foreshore.
The Mercure is the region’s first international hotel and provides an ideal base for visitors exploring the Marlborough Sounds area, with internationally-renowned wineries such as Cloudy Bay, Oyster Bay and Hunter’s just over 15 minutes drive away. The Mercure’s Chartroom Restaurant and Boatshed Bar feature a wide selection of the region’s finest wines.
* Offer valid to 30 December 2010, subject to availability.
