This place is probably the best motel I've stayed in so far. Very clean and tidy. Lots of extras that I haven't seen in other motels. We even got a plate of shortbread on our arrival. Definitely stay there next time we go to Westport!

This place is just simply wonderful! We chose a garden unit so we could sit outside and drink beers after our road tripping! It's lovely inside and out and very well kitted out with lovely toiletries... close to everything you need and very well priced. Highly recommend this place! Top tip... head out of town and discover Chasm Creek... off...

I stayed here for just one night and I thought it was faultless. Clean, well equipped and small touches like the fresh milk of choice and the shortbread biscuits showed how it should be done. Brilliant! Thank you.

We so enjoyed the small studio. There were many thoughtful touches and free laundry. The place is in very good condition and seems lovingly cared for. We enjoyed the garden view. It is a very good value.

Thank you for taking the time to review our motel. I am pleased you enjoyed the space that the Two bedroom Apartments offer, it is good to be able to spread out while travelling!

Stayed here for a weekend in February 2017. I have stayed in this motel previously as well. Very clean and tidy, helpful and friendly hosts. Upon arrival all guests are welcomed with shortbread made by the hosts - really tasty! Bathrooms are excellent with plentiful supplies of quality soaps, shampoo, etc.

Only had a studio unit but it was beautifully appointed. Clean, modern, comfy bed. Beautiful & spotless bathroom. Loved the umbrella in the room & the home made shortbread. Free wifi limited to 3GB per device - more than enough. I'd stay here again no problem. Owner was a perfect gentleman. Lovely guy.

Ray was delighted by your comments! Thank you for your lovely review, so pleased you enjoyed your stay with us, and pleased you were not short of wifi access. For the record, we don't mean to limit guests to 3GB, but our system is driven by vouchers and we are happy to replenish these as guests need them.

Amazing place, comfortable rooms and lovely staff and can borrow DVDs! The rooms have a way of making you feel comfortable, unlike some hotels where you feel uneasy with everything you use.

Thank you for your great comments. We understand what you mean about sometimes feeling uneasy in some places where there are so many "NO rules" that you don't feel welcome at all!
