“Always a pleasure to stay here”
Reviewed 6 July 2011

We would highly recommend this motel as we stay here on a regular basis - we always find it spotlessly clean, is quiet, has everything we need & only two doors down is a really good restaurant. The hosts are always friendly & most helpful.

Probably more a 3.5 rating than 4.

Pros - Room was fairly big, everything worked, all kitchen facilities except oven and fully stocked with usual kitchen items (incl coffee plunger and one serve of coffee for the plunger).

Cons - Upstairs room share a strip balcony with all rooms, i.e. no partitions, whereas the downstairs room did have). Bathroom was a bit cramped because of the spa bath. Getting in and out, and sitting at the loo, were both not as easy as one would hope. You'd need to be smaller than the average human to be able to sit on the toilet without being on an angle.

$120 for the room which was reasonable all things considered.

During several stays I have thoroughly enjoyed the friendly service and comfort. Host Paul has been terrific in helping to return my rental car and responding to any other needs. The room is always spotless the supermarket a 3 min walk and the spa is a bonus.

After traveling some Km's during the day we needed somewhere to stay. Whilst I was on holidays I still very much depended on internet access for my business. It was pointed out at checkin that internet was $5per hour. I just cant believe in this day and age you get charged for internet access. Build it into the room rate and give it for free.
Very clean room and comfortable quite sleep.
But move into 2011 and don't just copy the same old motel stuff. stand out with a point of difference.

The motel staff are friendly and helpful with great knowledge of the hidden local treasures.Booking and check in/out processed quickly and professionally.

The room was spotless, quiet and comfortable. Spa bath water jet massge after a day hiking means another day hiking! Overall motel was very clean and tidy. Free newspaper in the balcony morning sun.

A peaceful stay on the panoramic spectacular that is New Zealand South Island's West Coast. 5 minutes stroll one way and there is a botanic garden and huge river and 5 minutes the other you are in town.

This stay was the kiwifruit on our pavlova cake. No worries. Recommended.

Very clean & tidy motel - good size room with spa bath. Owner very friendly and helpful. Good kitchen facilities. Very quiet even though on fairly busy road. Comfortable bed, and reasonable no of TV channels. Not a lot to see in Westport - just stopped over on way to Nelson for ferry.
