Amazing place, comfortable rooms and lovely staff and can borrow DVDs! The rooms have a way of making you feel comfortable, unlike some hotels where you feel uneasy with everything you use. The room was clean and the shower had great water pressure. Owner let us use the laundry after hours to get rid of stains and they give you...

Thank you for your great comments. We understand what you mean about sometimes feeling uneasy in some places where there are so many "NO rules" that you don't feel welcome at all! We were pleased we could help with your clothing stains, just a small thing, but it makes travelling easier. Thank you for staying at our place, we appreciate...

Our family with stayed one night, and were pleasantly surprised. The attention to detail and little extras were nice. Big comfortable beds, well equipped kitchen and quality shampoo/ conditioner, access to fresh herbs, A book exchange along with really helpful office staff made this stay wonderful.

Thank you for your review, I know how tricky it is to find time when travelling. Delighted to hear you could make use of the herbs while you were here. I also hope you found a book in the basket that you could take away with you. Enjoy the rest of your holiday!

We booked late at a very busy timenand were looked after like family by noeline. The unit we had was impecably clean and we got real milk and shortbread on arrival. Noeline was a wonderful hostess and i would absolutely urge you to choose this motel over others

Thank you for your great review! It is wonderful having a review like this while we are away ourselves visiting family. Noeline manages the motel in our absence and while we think she is great, it is always good to have this confirmed by our guests, who often sing her praises! We are so lucky to have her!

Westport is an ugly town but if you're going to drive the magnificent coast road it is an excellent place to start your journey. Buller Court is a typical motel and, if you set your expectations accordingly, you will have a good night's sleep in a clean and comfortable room. Diana is a cheerful host and gave us a warm...

I recall the weather being dismal, which probably affected perceptions of Westport...can one really call it "ugly"? The approach over the river is rather fine, the shrubs, flowers and trees along the way in are well kept, the river walkways, all built by volunteers, provide wonderful views of the river, sea and mountains. We have some great little independent shops...

We stayed here for 1 night only in a new/refurbished 2 Bedroom Apartment which was clean, modern and comfortable.

Although your stay was only one night the two families managed to see lots of what Westport had to offer! Great to see you enjoying the BBQ and choosing DVDs to watch together in the evening. Hope to see you again some day!
