Diana and Ray have a great venue for your stay in Westport. We needed an overnight stay for the first night of a round trip from Rangiora to the West Coast & return. Some people choose to go straight to Greymouth then down to the Glaciers, but I wanted to see the scenery between Westport and Greymouth. I wasn't disappointed,... More

We spent the night at Buller Court in Westport. A lovely motel. Reception was efficient & welcoming. The room was exceptionally nice with kitchenette, very modern updated bathroom, comfy bed, nice linens, and all was very clean. If in Westport again I would definitely stay here. One more thing, we received a very good recommendation for dinner - maybe a... More

Only reason I didn't give this place 5* is because I couldn't get my head around the "house-keeping". They came in, cleaned the room fully and left it spotless but would not make the bed. I don't think I've ever stayed somewhere where they didn't make the bed each day..... Random. Ray and his wife who manage it are so... More

Diana-Ray, Owner at Buller Court on Palmerston, responded to this review

As you say...random! I am at a loss to understand why your bed was not made up. It is definitely expected, unless the guest has already done so, in which case we prefer not to interfere. I wonder if it was "pulled up" and interpreted as "guest has dealt with own bed"? We have had a chat about making sure... More

Stayed for one night on our way from Picton to Franz Josef and wished we had stayed for longer. Very easy to find with friendly, welcoming owners who gave us tasty shortbread on arrival. Parking right outside room. Room spotlessly clean and well equipped. Comfortable bed, no outside noise - good night's sleep. Good Wifi access. Great value.

The best NZ motels in our experience have older and newer style rooms, are run by owner/families, have good facilities for cooking your own meals and are very good value for money. Buller Court on Palmerston is an excellent example of this formula. The owners here are especially welcoming and helpful. Our unit was older in style, but with enough... More

My family stayed here a night while traveling though. The room was clean and comfortable. The staff were helpful and friendly. We were given homemade cookies after we checked in. We had parking adjacent to our room. There were laundry facilities there as well. I recommend staying here.

Very friendly staff, excellent facilities and all at a reasonable price. Blown away by how nice this place was as it was the best place we'd stayed over the course of the week we were traveling.

Thank you for mentioning that the accommodation is quiet, and set away from the road. The road at night anyway is really pretty dead. Great to have you stay and hope you enjoyed the rest of your holiday. More

It is so nice to check into a motel at the end of a long drive and be greeted by a friendly owner/manager who makes you feel right at home.... and then have fresh milk and home made shortbread delivered to your room. The room I had was perfect !! the cleanest of my entire trip of 8 days .... More

We found this motel to be good value for money & run by a very welcoming couple including homemade shortbread biscuits. Washing & drying facilities were very reasonably priced. We had access to a garden area at the back which was lovely to use for eating outside for breakfast.
