We stayed one night here. It was good. The bed was super comfy which is a bonus as most motel beds are pretty hard. Good /T V reception too.This motel is only 3 blocks from the centre of town. Nice walking distance to good restaurants.

Convenient for all amenities, friendly staff and clean rooms. Left us tea and coffee and had good local knowledge of places of interest and where to eat. Visit Deniston Incline for views and coal mining history. See the seals

This is a good honest little motel typical of many in New Zealand and is up to the usual standards. It is maybe a little bit dated but it's clean and the rooms are comfortable and quiet. The bed was very comfortable so we got a good night's sleep. The lady on reception /owner?,Kirsty, was really friendly and helpful ....

We found ourselves at Westport and just wanted a simple overnighter. This motel suited us; close to town and had its own cooking facilities in our room. Room was clean, shower was hot, and the bed comfortable. I thought the curtains may have been too light with the internal courtyard parking, but the place is so quiet it did not...

Decor was a bit retro but offered excellent value for money. Very clean and quiet, and the owners were very helpful and friendly - and definitely reflected the culture of the coast. Units were roomy and offered everything we wanted.

This was a great little place to spend the noght in Westport. Paul and Kirsty went out of their way to make us feel welcome, and gave us a terrific restaurant referal for Christmas Eve dinner! Not overly fancy, but everyting one needs, very comfortable, and fantastic personal service! A really great value.

Paul the manager could not have been more friendly or helpful. He made our stay in Westport one we will have with many good memories. Our dogs were welcomed and the experience was great. The décor is retro '70s and the facilities are clean and tidy with everything you could need including unlimited free wi-fi. Thanks very much for making...

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...

“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.”
