Buller Court on Palmerston provides excellent accommodation at a very reasonable price. The room we stayed in was very clean and comfortable, providing a kitchenette, fast internet (free) and very welcoming hosts. A private patio was available at the rear. A generous full in room breakfast is available at a very reasonable price. Location was great...only a couple of minutes...

Lots of reviewers have said lots of good things about the Buller Court ... and rightly so. It's well appointed, spotlessly clean and great value, and you get the firm impression that the owners really enjoy looking after you. None of the recent reviews seem to mention the breakfast, however, and this was a real treat. You hand in your...

We were welcomed with a small packet of milk and a little dish of freshly baked shortbread. Buller Court has been recently renovated and is spotlessly clean with a lovely sheltered garden "out back" with tables and seats. Delightful little town with Millenium walk beside the river and a splendid Aquatic centre. A little further away there is a lighthouse...

Looked at a few motels before choosing this. Lovingly decorated and full of little touches that make it seem like a much more expensive retreat. Immaculately clean and in perfect order. Very comfortable beds, and well decorated. Highly recommend. All in all, our best accommodation in NZ.

I cannot recommend this venue more highly. The decor was beautiful and modern, the rooms were clean and spacious, the staff were incredibly helpful. We were given gorgeous homemade shortbread biscuits on arrival. The rooms were cleaned daily. The position was very central with top class restaurants and cafes nearby

Cleanliness was superb, our bathroom had the best toiletries , extra towels without asking. Fresh milk and home baked shortbread, hospitality beyong the norm.

This has to be one of the cleanest motel rooms that we have ever stayed in! An excellent welcome without being intrusive. Good advice about eating out options. Car parking outside the front door and a small sitting area outside the back.

Best motel we have stayed at this holiday. SO clean, everything was sparkling. Beds comfortable, lighting great (many places don't seem to have enough lights), plenty of space, great places to store luggage, lovely toiletries. Can't fault this place - wish we are staying longer!! Oh - and the fresh homemade shortbread on arrival was absolutely delicious!!
