“Stay was just okay”
Reviewed 9 January 2013

Reception was friendly and helpful. The room was well equipped and looked clean but had an odor that reminded me of a pub. The room got warm - no screens on windows and we noticed some sandflies so were not comfortable opening them. Did not sleep well here due to the lingering odor and warm room. Previous reviewers mentioned homemade shortbread - we did not receive any but we did get a newspaper.

Room Tip: stay on the side away from the road - there will still be occasional road noise but it is minimal

This motel offers a basic rooms, but all one needs for a single night is present. The rooms are somewhat small. The breakfast was clearly better than in most motels. WiFi was free and fast. In the morning one gets a free newspaper(!). Westport has little to offer and is clearly a stopover to other interesting sites.

We stayed in a two bedroom motel unit with spa bathroom. Spotlessly clean, nicely laid out with lots of little touches you do not get in many motels - side tables to put drinks on, umbrellas to borrow, a platter of shortbread, full size bottles of nice toiletries, an electric frypan which opens up the the range of possibilities of what to cook in quite a small kitchen. It rains a lot in Westport so the covered car port was excellent for parking and unpacking and packing and there is also a small patio with furniture on the other side of the unit. Would definitely recommend for a lovely comfortable stay on the beautiful West coast.

This was a little gem! The rooms are very clean and modern and the owners have really thought of everything - there were lovely toiletries in the shower and the homemade shortbread was such a nice gesture (and very yummy!)
I would highly recommend this place!

We appreciated having our car parked under a Carport right at the back door of our unit. We also liked being able to borrow a good selection of DVDs for our evening entertainment. We enjoyed the 15? km to Foulwinds and hope to come back to Westport soon to explore the surrounds of this interesting Town a lot more.

WE stayed here in July , the room was perfect for what we wanted, very nicely done up and the bed was extremely comfortable. We decided to come back after we had been north so stayed another night in another unit that was just the as good.
A nice touch by the owners was a bit of Shortbread like Gran used to make.
Would recommend this place to anyone.
