A warm welcome by the owners upon arrival. Nice after spending a long day on the road! Our rooms were well laid out. Tidy, clean warm and well appointed. A chilly night, but the wall heaters (already on for our arrival) kept the units cosy all night. Beds were comfortable - had a really good nights sleep! The owners helped... More

Wonderful service at all times: while making the booking over the phone, on arrival as well as departure. Only stayed one night but wished we had stayed longer. Well equipped one bedroom apartment - perfect for families with full kitchen, great bathroom and everything you need for either just one night or an extended stay. Great recommendations by the owner... More

One of the cleanest motels I have stayed in, absolute credit to the owner and cleaning staff...Fabulously comfortable, and a great little play park for little kids to have fun. So quiet and peaceful, I would recommend this to all travellers, a real little jewel in Westport's crown, and I wish all motels were as clean as this one.

Right at the entrance of the town. Spacious and quiet property, you can park your car right in front of the room door. The interiors are decent with a modern touch and with ample supplies of tea and coffee. Reception was great with a less than a minute for check in, we stepped out with keys and fresh milk :)....
