So, I can't really review Omau Settlers Lodge because I have never stayed there, but I can tell you a little about their sense of hospitality. What I did do though was after taking a wrong turn, reverse onto their next door neighbours lawn and bog the camper van, which I suspected wouldn't go down terribly well. After knocking on... More

It was lovely meeting you both also, and thanks for the review on tripadvisor! I hope that the rest of your adventures around the west coast went more smoothly. If you ever visit again (minus the campervan), we'd love to host you at Omau Settlers Lodge for a night or two. Best wishes, Lee and Karen. More

We stopped here for one night on our way up the west coast but wish it could've been longer. The hosts were so welcoming & friendly and the rooms are just perfect. We enjoyed a dip in the hot tub under a full moon after a terrific meal at the pub next door. A lovely breakfast with the hosts just... More

We pulled up here after deciding we didn't really want to stay in Westport. The place is great, the rooms have front and back balconies, so you can sit an watch the sunrise then sunset. The rooms are basic but comfortable, with fridge and coffee making facilities, TV and very clean. Breakfast is included (continental) and the owners had just... More

Located at Cape Foulwind about 13km out of Westport, Omau Settlers Lodge consists of a block of eight private units and a communal breakfast / lounge area. Following a... More

Located some distance outside Westport near Cape Foulwind but fortunately next door to a pub/restaurant. Rooms in linked chalet style, perfectly comfortable. Wifi is timed using access codes but more are freely available from reception. Continental breakfast was perfectly OK.

The first thing we did was visit the hot tub which was down in a glen of ferns and flowers. Check in friendly and helpful with local walks. Modern, beautiful room very cozy. Common lounge with outdoor seating beautifully furnished. Very nice free breakfast. So quiet and relaxing. We wanted to stay more than one night.
