Stayed here with my young family and was perfect. Some of decor such as bathrooms getting dated but fastidiously presented.

Had a family funeral to go to and they even offered us umbrellas to take as rain was looming.

Myself, my husband, my sister, brother and sister-in-law stayed here for three nights as we were up celebrating our nana's birthday with family. The units were of a good size and very clean and warm. There were some nice gestures such as free biscuits and also proper filter coffee with a plunger, not just the instant sachets most places give you. The owners were very helpful and welcoming. As we were in a front unit it was loud at times with cars and people coming in and out, but overall it was a very enjoyable stay.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2009

We have just stayed at this motel and found it very good. I would recommend it. It is easy to access restaurants from the motel. Staff were most obliging. I left shoes behind and the management contacted me and promptly sent them to where I was travelling to.
We like Westport very much as a short stopover as there are great drives to do from there. The scenery up to the Heaphy track is great. It is definitely worth a trip to the local sea colony. We also visited Denniston, fictional home of Denniston Rose. superbe vviews from the top of this hill providing you pick a good day.

We stayed here only a few days ago and would happily visit this clean comfortable motel again. Although there is not alot going on in Westport the motel was a pleasant place to spend a night enroute to Christchurch. The owners were very helpful and obliging offering us a selection of rooms to inspected before making our choice and then suggested a number of restaurents where we might like to eat.

Westport is a small town and most of the motels are based on the one main road which takes you into westport and to be honest there isn't much choice available.
The room was ok - clean and comfortable.
