Recent guest reviews

As a family of 4, we were given the family room with one double and 3 single beds. It had free parking which got busier as the night went on and was a short drive/walk from restaurants. The owners/staff were very friendly and happy to offer suggestions for food and gave us a map. The facilities were great with washing machines and dryers that take $2 coins. Just go with caution with the powder they provide as the machines didn’t fully wash the powder out of our clothes! The rooms were clean but basic with full kitchen facilities and proper coffee. The room smelt slightly of damp but that was probably due to lots of rainfall we had while we were there. All in all a good budget place to stay.

Very friendly staff and quick check-in. Gives tips. Large room with a sofa. Very good bed. Shower and toilet separate. Good shower. Very good value for money. Fresh odeur and very clean room. Nice kitchenette.

Spent two nights at the motel. Room looked as if it had recently been renovated and was clean, tidy and welcoming. Owners were very friendly and helpful. Situation was great and very easy to find and also to get to the town and other places of interest on such a busy weekend. Would definitely recommend as a place to stay!

We stayed for two nights and despite the Motels own Guests Information Book stating that rooms would be fully serviced, were disappointed to find thats ours had not been. Clean towels had been left in the room but neither the bed made, the bins emptied nor the room cleaned. The studio does need a deep clean... there was thick dust along the window sills...but apart from that and the issue previously raised, no real complaints Our studio was quite large and spacious, fully equipped kitchenette, free Wi-Fi, clean comfortable bed. There is no air conditioning nor fans in the rooms. The laundry facilities are small but functionable. Friendly Manageress who was very informative on local amenities and apologised about the lack of room service. For the money no real major complaints.

Badly in need of a refresh unless knackered 70s decor is your thing. Wi-Fi sketchy at best, slow and intermittent. Room nice and big and locaction OK for town, but we should have spent $25 more to stay a bit more centrally.

This motel is straight from the 1970s- everything in the room was retro to say the least, most notably the shower room. This would not bother me if things were clean, but alas. There must have been some bugs in the bed linen or other places, for in the morning when we got up, my husband and I both developed itchy bug bites on various parts of our bodies. As I am typing up this review more than a week later, the bites remain itchy. It is simply not acceptable. As a matter of fact, because nets were not installed at the windows (unlike other motels we've stayed in), a few moths and bugs flew into our room and did not leave. We left the motel early in the morning and were glad that we arrived quite late the night before. On the up side, at least everything in the room functioned and there was free wifi. The price was not expensive either.

We arrived late and a very nice man (owner?) gave us a romm, on request not Close to the laundry. Room was clean, nothing Special but ok for 1-2 nights, he gave us good advice. We were told that if we did not check out exactly at 10 a.m. it would not be a Problem. But at 10:15 a.m. one of the few unfrindly People we met in NZ told us to quickly check out. The other cleaning Lady was friendly, but all in all that leaves a bad taste in your mouth

Good size room wouldn’t have been okay for a family. Good range of kitchen equipment. Lighting needs an update as the room was rather gloomy in the evening. Small outside seating area. Having the rotary washing line was good as washing done on arrival was dry by bedtime. Quite a stroll to the sea, but secluded sand beach was deserted apart from drift trees, amazing! Likewise a pleasant river stroll by the motel.

Excellent value motel which was spacious, clean and well equipped. Bed, sofa, dining table, full kitchen, bathroom and 2 outside seating areas. Would definitely recommend this accommodation especially as it's very competitively priced.

A "no problems" motel that easily met our requirements for a one night stopover whilst on our way south. The room was clean, well provisioned and spacious. Easy access to all that Westport has to offer.
