We stayed at the Bella Vista Motel in Westport early in October 2011 during the World Rugby Cup. We decided to tour the South Island and found ourselves in Westport on the northwest coast. The population is around 4000 and stores on the main street close around 5pm during the week.
The Motel is located on the Palmerston St (the main street) just as you come into the main area of town. You are within walking distance to all restaurants and shops and there is surface parking beside your unit at the motel.
We had a family unit which had a separate bedroom with a single bed and also bunk beds. There was a king size bed in the main area with a kitchen & eating area (chairs).
The bathroom was large and clean and there is a flat screen TV in the main area.
We asked for WIFI and were told it is provided free for 1 hour.
We did use it and were able to send some large PDF files OK.
I did read some other reviews however the unit we had was clean and had no smells.
We had no problem just walking down Palmerston Street to find a place to eat.
All in all, it is not luxury but was comfortable accommodation and reasonable (approx $149 NZ). I have posted some pics since there were not many to view.
