“Good Average Kiwi Motel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

Reasonabley priced motel in a back street of Westport where it's nice and quiet. The rooms are basic but very clean and tidy. There was a small issue I had when I first moved into the room and on requesting something be done about it they took care of it immediately which was very impressive, it's the little things that make the difference.

I made an evening meal in the kitchen and there was everything I needed to do that.

I would stay here again and I can recommend it to you as a simple motel at a good price.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

We stayed 1 night in Westport after a family gathering on 5th April. The studio room was a good size for 2 of us although the unit was a bit dated. The bed was comfortable and being situated away from the main roads the complex was very quiet so made for a good night's sleep. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Good value for money.

Stayed here 1 night with family.Had a 2 bedroom unit.Dated but well equipped and very clean.Miserable weather so cooked in unit and kitchen was excellent with all we needed.Beds were comfy and great lounge suite!We tended to stay mostly in motel as it poured with rain and every tourist thing we wanted to do was closed so motel was best place!Lovely greeting from manager who was so obliging.Thanks.

Stayed one night.
Beds are ok and rooms are tidy.
If you are just looking for a bed this is fine.
However, we found the room had a very dated decor and a leaky tap inside and a constantly running tap outside were minor annoyances but as I say it is a budget motel. tidy and not too expensive.

Room Tip: Not in centre of town but not long walk.

Maybe it was the dreary day, but this place seemed dingy and definitely needed a thorough cleaning and some sprucing up. The room was adequate, but nothing special. The bed was decent, but I’d look for something else next time.

Made a one-day break in Westport on our way down west coast. The room was quite okay, staff was very friendly. It's a good option if you are travelling on budget. However the room will need some renovation soon. Bed and kitchen stuff was sufficient for our needs. Maybe some more cleaning in the less used corners would be appreciated. The motel is situated in a quiet side street but in good walking distance to the "center" of Westport.
