“Overpriced but clean”
Reviewed 11 May 2014

We stayed on night here, the room was very small and needs updated. The floor went up and down. There is no news channel on the television. We paid 125 for this room, is more like a $70 room.
Room is clean but there was no plug in the sink bathroom.

Free Internet, what a bonus. Rooms old style, 80's, but clean and tidy, comfortable. We didn't feel like traipsing around accommodation options and hadn't looked online prior to arrival, so took this as we were late in to Westport, probably the cheapest on the trip, $110 for three of us. We had a good quiet night sleep.

We stayed one night at the Westport Motor Hotel. It is not a luxurious modern hotel but it was very clean and had everything we needed for our stay. We very much enjoyed our time here. It was quiet and well located. Did a very nice walk around town in the evening enjoying all the nicely restored homes. The owners were really friendly people. There is a lawn bowling club next door. We were asking some questions about it and the lady took us upstairs through their private apartment so we could have a good look at it from her patio. Just really nice people.

Fantastic service, very flexible as we were late at night arriving- however this wasn't a problem for the management, they happily met us at our room with the key, well maintained rooms and great idea to have mini fridge with refreshments!! Only bother was the restaurant was an a la cart menu for Saturday night so couldn't get the normal menu but bar staff were very helpful in suggesting a place with good steak! Very excellent flexibility as we had to check out on final night at 5:30pm - got half of price back which was awesome!! Will be back next year, thank you :)

I thought the rooms were great value and in a great location in the middle of the high street. Yes, there is an opportunity to spend some money refurbishing, but I had a wonderful stay, the room was very comfortable and this was one of the few places that I could get the English Premier League on the room TV ! Unfortunately Chelsea had QPR syndrome that day :-( The restaurant was one of the best on my travels. I had a buffet, choice and presentation of the food was excellent. I would definitely stay here again.

rooms are looking very tired and need just a paint and a tidy,carpet had a lump in it that i always seemed to find,bathroom fine,kitchen facilities a little sad,looks great on the outside until you get inside,beds average,water smells and tastes bad so it is general for westport but would have been nice ti know on booking in or a sign in the room

Room Tip: a room in back row would be quieter,but front rooms maybe nicer,we had a back room

I have stayed in the Westport Motor Hotel 3 times in the last few months while there with work. On the first visit my bag had vanished from the airport, concerning when I was in town for 3 days. The owners of the hotel did all they could to assist including ringing the Westport Airport Manager to see if she could assist with locating the bag, trying to find a computer charger, letting me use their photocopier and offering to make me tea when I must have look flustered! Over the next 3 days the same helpful attitude continued.

During my next visit the manager let me use her car every morning so I could go to the local gym! Much appreciated when I was here for 4 days working. This trip has been much the same, lending me books to read when I found myself stuck in Westport over night due to my booking the wrong return flight by mistake.

All in all if you want to really experience West Coast hospitality at its best stay here.
