“Quiet and Helpful”
Reviewed April 19, 2014

A clean, well set out large motel room with everything available for you. A very welcoming owner more than helpful with "things to do". Would recommend stopping here when "traveling the west coast" of New Zealand. Considering the literally raging storm, it was a very quiet and peaceful motel, however - food amenities are more than a short walk away (especially with the usual unpredictable rainfall in Westport).

On our way from Franz Joseph to Picton. Drove up the west coast and stayed at Westport. Room was clean & spacious and had everything we needed. Bed was very comfortable and in hindsight was the best nights sleep we had on our 18 day NZ holiday. Very friendly owner that was only too happy to answer our questions.

good morning all -all and all stayed in 10 hotels and motels during our trip around south island and I can clearing say Buller Bridge had the 10 out of 10 for us, I am fussy and was reluctant in staying in motels but with my sister on a budget we were looking for the best deal we could get, not only was it clean and comfortable the spacious outlay what was the wow factor also due to the fact we were staying longer than 1 night we had to choose what unit we wanted. WOW thanks to the manager. Diane and Bev (Louise & Thelma) Ha Ha

The Buller Bridge literally was the best motel I've stayed in to date.

Excellent rooms, superbly clean & modern. Incredibly welcoming hosts and fantastic garden/BBQ facilities. The bathrooms were spotless and the shower was nice and powerful - the bathroom even has top-down heating lights incase you're chilly in the morning!

The WiFi was fast and simple to use which is a fantastic bonus as in most motels in NZ WiFi is very questionable!

Couldn't recommend more!

Room Tip: We had room 12 - simply fantastic!

I stayed in the Crip and everything was superclean, well-maintained and even a large bottle of water was provided in addition to the fresh milk. The location is very convenient - easy walk into town center and close to main roads, but no traffic noise. Very helpful host. Just the perfect stay. I wish I could have stayed longer to explore more of the area as there is a lot of mining history around. Only stayed 1 night. Cape Foulwind and a seal colony close by.
Again - THE perfect stay and highly recommend to everybody - solo travellers, couples or families.

Room Tip: the crip is perfect for solo travellers or couples
