Buller Court on Palmerston

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 8 January 2011

Looks a little tired from the road, but gee what a place inside.

The renovations were nearly complete when we stayed here - had a 2 BR unit which was fantastic. Excellent and very large bathroom, good bedrooms, comfortable beds, large lounge. Clever use of the available space, and a really nice modern makeover on a place that was otherwise getting on a little.

And we got the shortbread too - thought it must be a christmas thing but obviously not given the other comments here.

Thoroughly recommended.

We had a two bedroom unit that had recently been renovated. It was fabulous, heaps of room and very well appointed with a good kitchen and huge bathroom. As we were two couples, the 2 extremely comfortable double beds were appreciated. We enjoyed the homemade shortbread too. Not much to see in Westport, but handy for a stop-over when travelling the South Island.

Stayed 1 night here in a 2 bed apartment. Was glad for the covered parking right outside the back door as it was pouring with rain and this allowed us to stay dry whilst moving our bags in. And then in through the front patio door came the owner with his wifes home made shortbread biscuits which were delicious.
The studio and its furniture are a bit dated and the bed was pretty uncomfortable. Its walking distance into Westport from the motel although we drove.
Would we recommend? Well for another $10NZ there are much better places within just a few metres and we moved to stay our second night in a nearby place which we thought was nicer and offered better value

I've delayed awhile before replying to this review as we had renovations in the pipeline and I wanted to be able so say, "We're not dated any longer!!" Our older two bedroom units have been virtually rebuilt, new cladding, new gibbing, new kitchen, gorgeous new bathrooms with brilliant showers! We were so delighted with the results, that we continued in the studio units and refurbished the bedroom and redesigned the bathrooms as well.
I was actually more worried about the comment that the bed was uncomfortable. After chatting to the writer of the review, I learnt that he found it too soft. As it is a very good bed and less than two years old, I investigated further and have solved the problem with a change of base, to provide the firmness. I look forward to more reviews, as I think our beds are great!
