As per other reviews this place looks tired. A freshen up would help and getting rid of the locked auto toilet paper dispenser would be a good start. Away from the main street so no road noise. Arrived wet and cold on the motorcycle so turned on the heater. It made a whinging noise so we turned it off in...

The motel was reasonably comfortable but a bit tired. Having a good sense of humour helps. The fuse box for several units was on our wall with no cover.The heater sounded like a jet taking off and the hair dryer looked like it belonged in a Dr Who movie. We still had a good stay and found the staff very...

The motel is away from the Main Street of Westport so is quiet but not as convenient as other accommodations. Personally I would not stay again as it is so dated it is like another reviewer said - a step back to the 60's. I guess I would rather pay a bit more (rates here are no bargain compared to...

We stayed one night in Ascot Motor Lodge with my mom and it was very comfortable. The room was clean and had all the necessary facilities. The price was also reasonable. I would defenetly recomend it.

This is the second time we have stayed at the Ascot Motor Lodge, main reason is that it is 4 doors down from where my family live but secondly I have always had a pleasant stay. We were staying with my sister and her husband so had booked a 2 bedroom unit. The room had a separate lounge with full...

We stayed for 4 nights over Easter 2016 in a 2 bedroom motel appartment. Everything was clean and tidy, the facilities were good, but the main thing we noticed was that the staff was very very service oriented. No waiting time or problems when we asked for something - just a quick and smiling service. That made a huge difference...

Was very disappointed with this motel. It was very dated and really could do with a complete update. Mirrors were dirty and the bathroom was very small and pokey. There is no light in the shower. The room smelt stale and musty. Curtains had to be pulled shut to get some privacy.

As unpalatable as it is we nevertheless appreciate this feedback. Judging from her feedback of NZ restaurants and motels in NZ we feel for Caroline B because her experience has been negative. Under the circumstances we offer to do everything possible to make a follow up visit a fabulous experience for her. Yes, we are an older motel and for...

I booked this before leaving the UK so wasn't certain of what I'd get. Upon arrival the reception I received was very good and friendly. I was given maps along with recommendations of where to eat and places to see. I could park right outside the room door. The bed was immediately in front of the sliding door and was...

CG was a very polite and thoroughly delightful gentleman from England and we are subdued and concerned with his report. The unit he stayed in was booked by himself and is the smallest studio unit we have. Normally we would move the booking to one of our larger refurbished units, however on this occasion the units were booked. We agree...

This accommodation is just about adequate. Everything within is tired and in need of renewing. The premises were clean and the price perhaps reflects the standard. However, it is centrally situated. We were only ever using Westport as a stopover and were pleased we only had to stay the one night.

Found it to be a comfortable budget motel, clean, with all the usual amenities. Within walking distance from the main street. Very comfortable large bed gave a great nights sleep. If you want luxury, go elsewhere and pay for it, but this was good for the price.

“This is more towards a budget end motel but excellent value for money. I get tired of people who complain a motel is tired or dated. You get what you pay for. If you want to pay mega bucks go somewhere else.”
