This motel was the best we had so far on this holiday. A very comfortable bed and an excellent nights sleep what more can you ask for when you are not paying for 5 star. We only stayed 1 night on route through south Island

Helpful lady on reception. Got to room - very large. Plenty of amenities. Heaps of TV channels to choose from. Unlimited, good quality Wi-Fi. Fantastic shower. What more do you need? Nice setting and beautiful birdsong too! 5 year old didn't get the chance to use the playground as the weather was poor but it looked good.

We booked a double room but got a spacious triple room. It was comfortable, heated and had all the requirements from clean bowls/ plates for breakfast, microwave, fridge and stove top. The room had tips and advice for the vicinity including mass times for nearby churches, which prompted us to catch a Sunday mass. Very thoughtful. It's a 15 minute... More

Pleasant welcome by a very helpful landlady who was very willing to help us with her recommendations of places to eat out and the recommendation proved very successful. The accomodation was very clean and beautifully presented. It was also very quiet allowing one to listen to the birds.

Spacious room with comfortable bed and all clean. Short walk to river and a bit longer walk to centre of town. Nice welcome from staff. A quiet heater that was sufficient. Huge car parking area so no banging of car doors on your car is a nice change in nz. Nice gardens and child's playground. Pillows were a bit too... More

Very comfortable. Great customer service. Situated on the banks of the Buller river. No need to say more. We would rate this motel as one of the best we stay in. Have tried others in Westport but now only come here.

I spent two nights at this very tidy motel. Plumbing and ironing facilities very good (two things I look out for). Very clean and tidy. Handy to a nice riverside walk. Recommend the cooked breakfast as the eggs were done just right. Good kitchen facilities if you want to prepare own meals. Having stayed there for work, I would have... More

It was on the 27th of August that my friends and I, a total of three people, decided to visit Westport.

We stayed for 1 night at the motel in Westport and it was a really pleasant stay. Free WiFi was an added bonus and despite being out in the furthest room, which was detached and oh so quiet, perfect) the wifi stilled worked fine. Westport was a quiet tow, it might have just been because it was winter but the... More

Stayed in Westport for the last night of our Warbirds Over Wanaka trip. We chose this motel as it was number one on tripadvisor and can see why. Great location. The lovely lady owner was very welcoming. The unit was immaculate and had everything we could possibly need. The bed was super comfy as well. We especially loved how the... More
