ASURE Chelsea Gateway Motor Lodge
Ranked #7 of 12 Hotels in Westport
Reviewed February 28, 2011

Chelsea Motor Hotel.
Located in the (very) quiet town of Westport this aging motel needs new carpet. Although spacious, the units are dated with some upgrades. The beds are comfortable and the sheets crisp and clean. Baths are great and the showers are energetic. Unfortunately, WiFi is outrageously expensive vs nearby competition and the nearby main road makes sleep a problematic affair.
The owners have obviously put much effort into the enterprise and we wish then well and suggest some marketing development and training.

We stayed in the 2 bedroom 2 bathroom spa unit and were very impressed. From the friendly check in and explanation of the town, to a tour of the room and ammenities! This was our best accom in NZ so far (after Kaikoura) . The place was clean, modern, spacious, the rooms were nice and big and well set out. There was a heater in every room including bathrooms and heated towel rails too! Magic. The spa was nice after 10 days on the road travelling. The kitchen was well equipped with a full stove/oven and fridge. 2 tv's. Very comfy living for 4 ad and 1 child. I can't remember if I used the internet here or not :(

I do remember a small playground for the kids.

2 mins drive down the road was the main street and supermarket.

It was an exceptional place to stay.

We stayed in a 1 bedroom family unit for one night. The room was clean and well appointed however, the main living area was small for 4 adults and only had 2 tub chairs. The bedroom contained 2 single beds with plenty of room to walk around.
The motel is on the main road so could be noisy however this wasn't an issue for us.
The motel is walking distance to the town and supermarket.

living room with double bed, table, 3 seats and 2 lazy seats and kitchen incl cooking facilities. Bedroom with double bed. For 1 for 155 NZ$. On itself reasonable if it wasn't for the fact that there is no musquito curtains and no an of airco. The combination results in a too hot room and many bites. The beds to be tested but seem a bit soft(springs). When climate control/mosquito protection are fixed I can recommend but now absolutely not!

Stayed here with my young family and was perfect. Some of decor such as bathrooms getting dated but fastidiously presented.

Had a family funeral to go to and they even offered us umbrellas to take as rain was looming.
