What a lovely place to stay. Under cover parking right outside the room, free wifi and complimentary milk and shortbread biscuits delivered to our door by our host. This was a really cosy and comfortable room that was also very quiet. They also offer full sized New Zealand made shampoo and conditioner for use in the bathroom, which was a... More

We are frequent visitors to Westport & Buller Court is our favourite accommodation & have tried most options over the years, until we discovered this gem. Far superior to even the newest motels. Diana & Ray are congenial hosts who really go out of their way to ensure that their guest's stay is enjoyable. They are to be congratulated on... More

An excellent motel in a smaller town showing the value of attention to the smaller things - like having the heater on before you arrive so you walk into a cosy room, having bright soft furnishings to liven things up, and a good selection of quality toiletries rather than a dispenser on the wall.

This should be a 5 star. They need a restaurant. Very helpful owners and ultra clean rooms. Heating and beds were excellent and the bathroom looked new. An old fan heater on the wall, although efficient, was loud and probably needs replacing. No doubt the owners will do this.

Beautifully presented! This motel has been fully renovated with tasteful, modern decor and all the small details thought of. From the selection of herbal teas available, homemade shortbread on arrival, up to date magazines in room to read and an extensive list of DVD's to hire. Stayed in a 2 bedroom unit. Spacious lounge and bathroom. Shower had great pressure... More

Was only here for a 1 night stopover and it was fantastic. Great location, easy to find on the main road but still quiet, the owner was very welcoming and friendly and the shortbread on arrival was a nice touch and very tasty. The room itself was a good size, very clean and comfortable and all of the facilities were... More

This motel is beautiful. We stayed in a 2 bedroom suite and it was fantastic. The facilities are exceptional, the service is delightful and the little extras make a huge difference. There are DVDs available, the provision of extra amenities and nothing was too much trouble. We lived this place and recommend it for all!

Westport was more of a stopover then an actual visit but would have stayed longer only because of this motel. Owners greeted us with warm smiles and even snuck us some cookies upon arrival. Rooms were extremely clean, bathrooms large, and amenities up to date. My husband and I have stayed in all sorts of motels on the South Island.... More
