“Great position and good value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2012

With a friendly greeting we were upgraded to an upstairs unit. Our unit was clean and comfortable and in a great spot for discovering Westport. We were given some helpful advice about where to eat and going on what we heard we enjoyed a wonderful dinner at Porta. The food was fantastic and the restaurant had a comfortably warming atmosphere and friendly, helpful service. All up we had a very enjoyable and memorable night in Westport.

4 of us stayed in 2 units at this immaculately clean motel.
Wonderful bedding and well appointed units within walking distance to town. Owners were very helpful with everything....where to go and where to eat.
Would recommend this motel to anyone going to Westport

Room Tip: Check if there is upstairs and if you don't like noise above, make sure you get a higher one

Would recommend this very clean and spacious place - great for 3 single people. We were wanting a downstairs unit due to our luggage but as only upstairs units were available we were given assistance. Good advice re restaurants and seal colony to visit. We will be back again.

We stayed at this very clean and well appointed motel on our road trip from Invercargill to Tauranga. The hosts were friendly and most helpful and pointed us towards The Town House Dining Room and Lounge where we had an excellent meal. Without realising, I left my glaucoma eye drops (which I need to take twice daily) in the fridge. On finding the drops the owner immediately left a message on our phone which was picked up as we were queuing for the ferry at Picton. I resigned myself to managing without my drops until my return to the UK but without hesitation the owner immediately couriered them to our forwarding address in Tauranga without charge where they awaited our arrival. I cannot thank them enough for their kindess.

We would highly recommend this motel as we stay here on a regular basis - we always find it spotlessly clean, is quiet, has everything we need & only two doors down is a really good restaurant. The hosts are always friendly & most helpful.

Probably more a 3.5 rating than 4.

Pros - Room was fairly big, everything worked, all kitchen facilities except oven and fully stocked with usual kitchen items (incl coffee plunger and one serve of coffee for the plunger).

Cons - Upstairs room share a strip balcony with all rooms, i.e. no partitions, whereas the downstairs room did have). Bathroom was a bit cramped because of the spa bath. Getting in and out, and sitting at the loo, were both not as easy as one would hope. You'd need to be smaller than the average human to be able to sit on the toilet without being on an angle.

$120 for the room which was reasonable all things considered.
