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

Room Tip: For 3 people 1 spacious layout or 2 rooms your choice

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

We did a driving tour from Auckland to Queenstown. Westport was a nice break between Picton and Franz Joseph, so that was my original intent. But, I found Westport incredibly charming and Buller Bridge Motel was quaint, friendly, charming and very comfortable beds. Its on the coast and easy walk into town for dinner. We booked online with no problems and the rooms are big, clean with great showers!

Stayed here for 2 nights on our 3 week journey across the South Island. It was our favorite stay on our entire journey. The room was immaculate and very spacious. Close proximity to restaurants and shopping as well as points of interest. Owners were very helpful and went out of their way to meet all our needs. Would highly recommend a stay here.
