We would highly recommend this hotel. Perfect location by the sea, spotless room with TV, WiFi and kitchen facilities - so nice to be able to enjoy a cup of tea on our arrival. The owner Grace was so kind and helpful - laundry facilities were another bonus! Nice friendly Tavern around the corner for a friendly drink and dinner.... More

On arriving in Westport we sought help from the ‘i’ in finding overnight accommodation and, albeit we arrived just before closing time, they were very helpful. We visited 2 motels in town but decided the Omau Settlers Lodge, some 15 minutes drive before Westport was exactly what we wanted i.e. a balcony looking towards the sea; very clean and comfortable...

We stayed for one night as were attending a local birthday party and needed somewhere within walking distance to Cape Foulwind. Delightful rooms at this motel, very comfortable and clean. A lovely TV/ Breakfast room and breakfast includes home made preserves and bread! Friendly, helpful owners. This is a peaceful location with spectacular views of the crashing surf. Would recommend...

Me and my partner stayed here last month and have done so on previous occasions before, the rooms are very nice and clean, big and spacious, the shower has great water pressure. The lady that welcomed us to tell the truth could do with a holiday herself as you got the feeling everything was a effort, but she wasn't impolite.... More

We stayed 2 nights at this great motel. It is located on Cape Foulwind which has great cliff top and sea scenery. It is a little way out of Westport however it is an easy drive. The studio units are near new and are very clean and tidy and have a great bathroom. There is a large communal lounge attached... More

Omau Settlers Lodge was built by a talented couple: he's a builder in Westport and she has terrific taste-- together they built a very stylish compound of bright, breezy units with small porches on two sides (we kept the doors open at night), nice furnishings and small, but very nice bathrooms. We were pleasantly surprised by it all and really... More

I found this place in the New Zealand AA accomodation guide. It's about 12 km out of Westport at a place called Cape Foulwind...don't let that name fool you the place is just lovely. The units are little cabins with a queen size bed, a very modern bathroom and a verandah to sit out on to enjoy a glass of... More

We only stayed for one night, but wish it could have been longer. It was a fantastic experience from start to finish. The breakfast provided for guests in the lodge dining room was a yummy selection of cereal fruit and paul and grace's freshly baked homemade bread, thanks paul and grace

An excellent use of space for a smallish room. Well appointed with quality fittings and a magical site near Gibson's Beach. We only stayed one night but found everything to be just right. It is only a short walk to the Lighthouse or Beach, and a short drive to the Seal Colony. Breakfast was a simple but tasty buffet -... More
