The first motel as you drive into Buller, Westport, is the Buller Bridge Motel. This is a family establishment, but that doesn't make it fall short of the travelers' expectations. The friendly reception gave us the keys to our room. The room turned out to be 2 rooms - one with a double bed, & the other with twin beds....

The room had everything we needed. The milk and cookies were a nice touch. The front desk staff was very accommodating and was able to quickly answer all our questions. Wifi was very adequate and even got free vouchers for 2 devices. No problems Parking in front of our room.

This Motel room was possibly the cleanest and best equipped motel room that I have ever stayed in anywhere, was also handy to town. Our room lacked for nothing and was roomy, parking was available right outside our room so easy to unload luggage from the car.

We stayed one night at Buller’s Bridge Motel during our three week visit to New Zealand on February 11th, 2016. The "Stand Alone Cottage" (sleeps 2) was very clean and very well equipped. The room and bath were recently updated and in brand new condition. The location on the property was private and relaxing. We were warmly welcomed and offered...

We were pleasantly surprised to find such a great little motel in such an out of the way place. We were given a carton of fresh milk on arrival to use with the tea and coffee in the room. We were also given a free upgrade to a two bedroom unit and having the extra bedroom gave us plenty of...

Very welcoming, friendly staff. Our unit was clean, comfortable and fresh smelling. It had obviously been repainted quite recently but we must have got one of the older rooms - old kitchen but with a wonderful fridge/freezer that allowed me to freeze bread, rolls and meat for upcoming meals - fantastic. Dated bathroom with a shower curtain that stuck to...

Friendly & very quiet, in a little-visited corner of New Zealand. Room was very tidy, spacious and looked new. Easy drive to nearby seal colony to the north, or to excellent glow worm caves at Charleston to the south.
