Reviewed June 10, 2014

We arrived late in the evening- unit was warm, as the heater had been turned on for us. We were in a large, modern unit - spotlessly clean, very comfortable and fully equipped in every respect. Four of everything in the kitchen- fantastic! Comfortable bed- brilliant! Our host was welcoming, friendly and most helpful. Buller Bridge motel is not on the main street- but has to be the best we have stayed at in Westport. Also, the best value for money in the town. We'll be back!

Room Tip: All units recently refurbished. The new Lockwood ones are especially good.

My wife and I stayed overnight after arriving on a cold and windy afternoon. The unit was large and roomy but warm as the heater was on when we arrived. There was a separate bedroom with two single beds so it could comfortably sleep four. The hosts were extremely helpful and the motel itself clean, quiet and close to town. My wife, who is a very hard marker, gave it a 9 out of 10. Heartily recommended.

We travelled with 4 adults and found this place very homely and the SUPER KING size bed was a real treat.
Host were very friendly and helpful.
BBQ area great.
Room was spotless and more than roomy for the 4 of us, defiantly a place to call in too.
Loved it.

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.
