“Use the spa if you want to get any value for the cost.”
Reviewed 15 July 2013 via mobile

In two years the price for accommodation has shot up in Westport, and I really cannot see the huge attraction.

This particular motel is okay - it's completely average, nothing special (quite small rooms) and yet the prices are at the top end of accommodation in the low season. Hmmm.

Still, it's a roof over the head, there's some free WiFi thrown in (good for the international traveller at the moment), and the unit had everything we actually needed to prepare food, etc, so there were savings in not going to a restaurant for dinner or breakfast.

Bottom line... If you pay to stay, relax in the spa baths and know that at least $10 of your cost for the night is being chewed up right there.

Oh, and be certain to visit the Denniston Plateau and feel what it was like to spend a lifetime up there!

Big screen TV with a king, queen and single bed + a massive three person spa. What more could you ask for?

Full kitchen facilities is a big bonus as well.

Had a great stay and would not hesitate to stay again. In fact we plan on it!

Room Tip: The one bedroom is big and at the back away from the main road.

We chose this motel to break our journey between Picton and Fox Gacier. An excellent decision! Paul the owner was very friendly and helpful. Accommodation was very reasonably priced. Our first floor room was spacious, clean and well-equiped, with a comfortable bed. Internet speed was excellent. Wesport beach is definitely worth visiting (if you can find it) for the amazing views north up the coast.

Clean, comfortable, extremely well equipped motel unit. I was on the top level and found the room sunny and quiet. Glad I chose this motel (toyed with this and another) and would definitely stay here again if in Westport.

We stayed in an upstairs studio room and found this one a good clean room with enough room for one night. We like to cook porridge for breakfast which we bring with us and this place was well set up for this (I think the tiny milk containers were a bit spare though). We especially enjoyed the large spa bath. The room was clean, warm and smelt fresh. We will use this motel again when returning in the future.

A nice clean easy to find motel. Located handy to town. Owner was friendly. Enjoyed relaxing in the spa after a 600 km drive today. Could do with giving out a decent size milk. Bed was very comfortable and a good night's sleep was had.

I have stayed at this motel several times and have always been impressed with the presentation and cleanliness here. The owners are friendly and welcoming. The units I have stayed in have all had a large corner spa bath with a shower over this. There is a small kitchenette in each room. The upstairs rooms have a balcony and the downstairs room open onto a small courtyard. There is a dairy a couple of minutes walk down the road and 10 minute walk will see you in the township itself. There is wi-fi internet available here and sky television.
