This is the second time I have stayed here in less than 12 months and wouldn't hesitate to stay here again it is a very nice motel. I also accidentally left my phone charger behind which they posted to me. So a big thanks for that as well.

It's a pity a few more moteliers around NZ don't perform to the same standard of Buller Bridge Motel. I was greeted in a very friendly and welcoming way and provided with all the info we needed for our overnight stay from restaurants to consider to tourist opportunities and we were given a map. We had booked a studio unit online (because of their TA reviews) and were then given an upgrade to a 1 bedroom unit. This had modern decor, was spacious, good quality furnishings and up to date kitchen and bathroom. Don't be fooled by the somewhat "rustic" exterior because inside (presuming that all units have been modernised) the units are like new. Incredibly clean and very comfortable with nice fluffy towels etc. Highly recommended.

nice accommodation, rooms are wide and kitchenette is well equipped. We booked at last minute and could get the last family accommodation, that had not yet been renewed. Any other is much better. Very friendly staff - a nice couple - very well organised. they provided also newspapers in the morning and any useful information. Definetely a very good place, quiet very comfortable. WiFi worked well for free.

Room Tip: Any room is good, except the 1 or 2 that at the time - december 13 - had not yet been refurbished.

Clean and comfortable although the bathroom could do with an update. Owners very helpful and welcoming, especially after the recent storms. Free wifi. Coin charge laundry available. Would stay here again.

Lovely, quite, clean accomodation with friendly staff.
Received a free upgrade of room on arrival so that was really nice and much appreciated. We only stayed the one night, so didn't use any facilities, would have loved to stay longer.

We stayed here for one night during school holidays on our way to the Able Tasman national park. The one bedroom unit we occupied appeared recently renovated and clean. However, at a charge of $180 per night the expectations are high. Free Internet would have helped to meet these expectations. 50+ sky channel's and friendly hosts.

We had a 2 bed motel room that was very spacious & so homely. The bedrooms & lounge area were a great size & very clean. The towels were jumbo size & smelt nice & clean. We did a load of washing in the laundry provided & that was also very clean. When we checked in we asked about using the bbq, it was in a lovely gazebo with nice lawn area, plenty of seating (which unfortunately we couldn't use because it was drizzling) the bbq was spotless & the owner was raking the lawn earlier. Westport is a lovely country town & all 4 of us were sad we couldn't stay longer. The owners of this motel should be commended for such a beautifully presented property.
