I have stayed in several other motels in Westport over the years while visiting family but from now on Westport Spa will be my first choice. The room had recently been redecorated, it was clean and the decor fresh, the beds were super comfortable, the location is close to town and quiet, and free wifi was unlimited.

We have been doing some work in Westport, and chose to stay again at the Westport Spa Motel. The welcome was warm, the rooms clean, the wifi free and the room tariff reasonable. Overall a motel I am happy to keep coming back to.

Very good. Clean and tidy and very comfortable. Bathroom was a bit cramped filled up with spa bath. Otherwise, well set out. A little bit noisy downstairs from people upstairs walking around - but not a big issue. Friendly and helpful. Reasonable rates. Central.

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.

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
