We really enjoyed our stay. Its a very nice place and the ownes are super friendly and helpful. The hottub, which guests can use free of charge, is really a nice extra perk and wonderful after a day of travel or activities. The pub right next door is also lovely, with good food and good range of beers.

Omau Settlers Lodge was a great find. Had not heard of Cape Foulwind until we tried to book accommodation in Westport after the recent NZ earthquake. Great out of the way location near the coast and next to a pub for dinner. Accommodation is modern and very comfortable with an outside heated spa if weather permits. Hosts Karen and Lee...

Karen and Lee could not have done enough for us. A glitch in our bookings.com reservation left us with an extra family member. Karen sorted it with no compromise to our comfort. And this when East Coast earthquakes left the West Coast with no vacancies. Loved the shared breakfast with homemade bread muffins marmalade and muffins. We will definitely come...

This is one of the best designed motels I have come across. The room layout is very clever and with an outlook front and back it maximises the available views - and all done so it feels very private. Our host's friendly attention to detail made it a top place to stay in our experience. Describing the breakfast as "continental"...

After a beautiful drive from Christchurch the weather turned rainy and arriving to the Omaha Settlers Lodge was a relief. Everything about the place felt calming and settling, from the welcoming initial smile to the homely, tastefully decorated warm room and the sound of rain on its roof. The pub just next to the lodge provided tasty food and all...

I always use the Lodge when working in Westport; great scenery, wonderful breakfast with homemade bread and this week homemade Christmas Mince Pies too. Karen & Lee are great hosts and after a long drive or a days work there's no better spot to relax and unwind.
