Wonderful small place with lots of extra touches to make it special - umbrella, homemade cookies, DVD's, cutting board, cold water in frig, bars of soap AND body wash, towel warmer, ice cubes, mint candies, lots of local info. Great value.

Our family stayed here last night. It started with warm shortbread on arrival, everything we could have possibly needed was supplied including an umbrella! Nice shampoo and conditioner supplied and my kids loved the spa bath, well stocked kitchen etc. The only small downside was hearing the neighbours alarm through the wall, not clear just muffled but otherwise amazing hosts!...

Thank you for taking the time to review our motel. I am pleased you enjoyed the amenities and the children appreciated the spa bath....always a hit with little ones, isn't it! I am so sorry you were disturbed by the alarm clock next door - I do hope the guests there did not leave it to ring for long. Not...

Friendly and extremely well appointed Motel with a reasonable price. Best one we have stayed in yet on our tour up the West Coast. Thanks Noeline for all the little touches to make this place so homely.

We chose this place based on TA reviews. It was good for us because I was looking for a place with laundry facilities. They do have it but it took the dryer forever to get our clothes dry. It was nice to get a little plate of shortbread cookies upon checking in. I especially appreciated having an oscillating fan in...

Thank you for reviewing our motel, I know how short of time one is when travelling. I do apologise for the dryer being so slow, that can be very frustrating. I do have one dryer that has never seemed as efficient as the second, but did not realise the wait felt like forever! Time for a replacement, I think! Thanks...

Lovely motel with well appointed rooms. Friendly and helpful staff. Good location on Main Street of Westport. Even get some complimentary shortbread to welcome you. Good base of operation for walks, visit the seal colony or explore the northern buller

We are happy that you used our accommodation as a base to explore the lovely countryside and coast in Buller. There is just so much to see and do when you go north, off the beaten track. I wonder whether you went into the Oparara Valley and visited the caves and the Oparara Arch? Fascinating area!

This place is probably the best motel I've stayed in so far. Very clean and tidy. Lots of extras that I haven't seen in other motels. We even got a plate of shortbread on our arrival. Definitely stay there next time we go to Westport!

This place is just simply wonderful! We chose a garden unit so we could sit outside and drink beers after our road tripping! It's lovely inside and out and very well kitted out with lovely toiletries... close to everything you need and very well priced. Highly recommend this place! Top tip... head out of town and discover Chasm Creek... off...

OH, you are the best travelers.....taking advantage of the garden for relaxing and also exploring the lovely little spots on the coast around Westport! So many people miss the beautiful and unspoilt areas on their hurry down south! Thanks for staying with us, hope you are still enjoying your holiday.

I stayed here for just one night and I thought it was faultless. Clean, well equipped and small touches like the fresh milk of choice and the shortbread biscuits showed how it should be done. Brilliant! Thank you.
