Spacious room with comfortable bed and all clean. Short walk to river and a bit longer walk to centre of town. Nice welcome from staff. A quiet heater that was sufficient. Huge car parking area so no banging of car doors on your car is a nice change in nz. Nice gardens and child's playground. Pillows were a bit too...

Very comfortable. Great customer service. Situated on the banks of the Buller river. No need to say more. We would rate this motel as one of the best we stay in. Have tried others in Westport but now only come here.

I spent two nights at this very tidy motel. Plumbing and ironing facilities very good (two things I look out for). Very clean and tidy. Handy to a nice riverside walk. Recommend the cooked breakfast as the eggs were done just right. Good kitchen facilities if you want to prepare own meals. Having stayed there for work, I would have...

It was on the 27th of August that my friends and I, a total of three people, decided to visit Westport. I would like to give Buller Bridge motel rating of five stars for its great value and an awesome free upgrade due to unexpected surge of bookings that came through to the motel, a group of hokey players required...

We stayed for 1 night at the motel in Westport and it was a really pleasant stay. Free WiFi was an added bonus and despite being out in the furthest room, which was detached and oh so quiet, perfect) the wifi stilled worked fine. Westport was a quiet tow, it might have just been because it was winter but the...

Stayed in Westport for the last night of our Warbirds Over Wanaka trip. We chose this motel as it was number one on tripadvisor and can see why. Great location. The lovely lady owner was very welcoming. The unit was immaculate and had everything we could possibly need. The bed was super comfy as well. We especially loved how the...

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...

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...
