A clean moderately sized room with a good selection of kitchen stuff. Friendly chatty management and fairly reasonably priced we were more than happy. Wifi seemed a little weak and the TV was small and placed so as to hurt your neck watching it.

We arrive in Westport tired after an awful night Arthurs pass. Very happy to have clean comfortable environment, comfy bed, good shower and friendly helpful staff. The owners obviously enjoy their job and it shows, thank you.

We stayed in a two bedroom unit and always stay here when we visit Westport. Reason being the service is great, the rooms are clean and everything we need and the Cooked breakfast is always impeccable. We will be returning to Westport and when we do we will only be staying at the Chelsea Gateway unless they are fully booked... More

Six of us stayed at the Chelsea Gateway Motor Lodge in Westport last Saturday night. We found it really clean and comfortable and the three bedrooms were a real bonus. The linen and towels especially of great quality - probably the thickest towels I have found in a motel. It was conveniently close to town- a brisk walk in winter.... More

Stayed there for two nights in a two bedroom unit. Perfect in all areas - very clean, comfortable, spacious, kitchen with everything needed - coffee, tea, biscuits, towels, shampoo etc topped up daily. Very friendly and helpful staff. Highly recommend this motel to other travelers.

One of the cleanest motels I have ever stayed in. Decor was good relatively new, with flat screen TV and sky. Amenties for tea and coffee were good included bikkeys as well, and very modern small appliances that you could use for breakfast. Very friendly staff definitely recommend a great experience

Stayed here for 3 nights in February 2012. Quite a number of motels in Westport. Booked online and received a prompt reply. A number of units available here perhaps not laid out in the most attractive manner. But everyting externally looked clean, fresh and encouraging. The studio unit booked was placed at first floor level and had a small balcony... More

Management response:

We agree that the annual Marathon in Westport is a great event. It is our busiest weekend of the year and because of this we don't have as much time to converse with our guests as we normally would. The majority of our Marathon weekend guests are repeat guests who re-book from year to year and enjoy coming back. We... More
