Reviewed 26 February 2012

Poor bed, very tiny table for eating; quite noisy considering its location away from highway; fridge turned off on arrival so took a long time to cool down. Reading light way too bright & far too high. And the usual awful tasting Westport water (w/ no filtered water available for drinking or tea/coffee.

I felt like I was in a college dorm or a youth hostel. Considering the price and the fact that the spa they raved about was broken, I don't feel like we got much for our money. However, it was clean and quiet.

The location was good, handy to town.The unit was spotlessly clean if rather shabby and dated.Had a problem with the sound system on the TV but as the owner could not fix it we had to go without.(No concession offered)The double bed was unfit to sleep in and the linen had a strange smell,maybe due to the water which was foul.Dont think I'll be going back.

This was a clean motel,happy with the condition and price.
No smoke detector in suite.

Very quiet motel, unless families resident. At the back of town, there is a short walk to shops etc...Single story units, with gardens all round....., childrens play area, sauna available via reception for a nominal charge...Units a little dated but comfortable and clean....Unfortunatley when it rains there is a strong ''peaty'' smell in the water...needs boiling before use.Kitchenette offers all you need for basic cooking, as small pans and minimum utensils. Bathroom and shower adequate, but no hairdryer. Outside parking, internet available, breakfast packages can be ordered from reception at an appropriate cost....

I had meeting in Westport early one morning, so decided to drive over from Christchurch the night before. Westport Motels was exactly what I was expecting considering the other reviews of this site: clean and tidy but outdated décor. I made my booking on wotif and got a great $88 per night deal, so comparing the price to the other Westport motels on wotif, Westport Motels offers excellent value for money, especially when you are just using the room to sleep in like I was (and only wanted a cheap bed for the night, not worrying too much about the decor). I was impressed that they had a freeview satellite decoder in each room - It was a bonus to be able to watch TV with good picture quality. Staff at check-in and check-out were friendly, and on arrival after a 4 hour car ride by myself the cheery west-coast welcome by the receptionist was appreciated. Overall Westport Motels offers excellent value for money with friendly staff. If you get a good deal on wotif or a similar site, and have the right expectation to their room quality, you should not be disappointed.
