Reviewed 12 August 2014

A lovely place to stay! Not too expensive but clean comfortable rooms. With a view over the park, a library, super welcoming hosts, advice on local eateries and some amazing art hanging on the walls. A relaxing stay on our journey down the coast.

The art on the walls was an added bonus with some time spent admiring the works from some pretty talented individuals. See the photos on this site. The hosts were very friendly and hospitable.

Visiting the North end of the South Island's ultra-laid-back West Coast; the ART HOTEL - in Westport - offers a pleasant alternative to the basic hotel/motel accommodation scenario
The re are no bar or restaurant./cafe facilities, but the rooms are clean and comfortable and the kitchen hygienic and serviceable. The members of the owning artistic co-operative are charmingly welcoming; whilst doing a good job of providing excellent budget conscious lodgings. The eclectic art on the walls is just a bonus.
