We stopped here for the night between South Westland and Nelson. Chris at reception was welcoming and helpful with ideas about what to do and where to eat. We had a studio unit which was very quiet with no extraneous light - just the ticket for a good night's rest between two longish car journeys. The kitchen facilities were pretty... More

On day 2 of our stay, very good accomodation, immaculate with a very helpful reception. Only a couple of downsides, we can hear the upstairs guests and we have no view, though there is a small patio where you can sit out in the evenings. Westport has some beautiful walks and the scenery is again stunning.

This hotel was just perfect for our needs. Driving through from Franz and heading out the next morning, this place hit the spot. Chris, the owner was delightful and very helpful pointing out the best eateries in town. With very clean and comfortable rooms, TV, Sky channel, laundry service and a great location, we would highly recommend you drop in... More

We arrived in Westport after a long drive and picked the Spa Motel as it was the first motel we saw. No booking. Our room was right at the back and upstairs. The room was small but comfortable enough. The bathroom was tiny. We had to sit on the toilet sideways as the vanity was right up against it (and... More

Thank you for your review. Yes our bathrooms are on the small side mostly due to the large double spa bath that takes up a lot of floor space. I am glad you enjoyed the use of the spa bath. Kind regards Chris Lark More

I spent a week at Westport Spa Motel at the beginning of December whilst in Westport for business. There are some repairs happening at the motel, but that did not interrupt our stay at all. We were given a friendly welcome, and the motel was a good base for business. The free wifi was really good, and the speed was... More

Had to stay here two nights while on a business trip – units are very clean and tidy, décor is a little dated but the room was very comfortable and the spa bath is a bonus. Towels are especially excellent but getting the temperature of the water in the shower required fine tuning. Bed was excellent and had a couple... More

I was driving around the South Island and decided to stop overnight in Westport. Given the variability of motels "on the road," I am never sure what to expect. In this case the room was more than comfortable and provided what I needed -- not a single complaint. In addition, the innkeeper was welcoming and exceedingly helpful in orienting me... More

I stay here for business. Rooms are comfortable and clean. A bonus is a spa bath especially if you have had a long day. Breakfast is available should you require. There are also good restaurants near by.
