Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

All the info you need for the local attractions plus a fabulous on site museum and well priced merchandise in the gift store
The museum tells the story of the minerals that have established many lives in the area. It starts with a mix of magic and science with the stories of these minerals in a short film . After that there are extensive displays with good explanations so you can learn as much as you want to at your own pace. More movies are set in the darkness of a coal mine.

Very good for us as having one day in Westport and wanted some clues which were well provided by the helpful staff allowing us to plan our day. We were in early and had no waiting and found some trinkets in the shop. Thank you.

The staff at the information centre were so friendly as were he rest of the people in Westport. It’s really nice vibe for tourists to come into with people being so welcoming and friendly. It not only credits the city but also the country. Well done Westport you are certainly tourist friendly and extremely helpful and accommodating. Thank you.

Not the warmest of welcomes. Bored staff who point you to the brochures. The building has some old railway stuff which might be interesting if you are into that sort of thing.

Hi OddSoxrocks. Thank you for taking the time to review your experience here at the Westport I-Site. We were very disappointed to hear your received such a poor greeting and customer service when you visited us in February. We do take this feedback on board and hope the next time you visit us we can rectify your opinion of us. Our Mystery shopping reports have always scored high our last one was 98% out of 100. For the month of February we had 8323 people through our door which averages 297 clients a day, I'm thinking you must have caught us in a down time as in February we are never bored. The odd Railway stuff lying around that you refer to, is actually an award winning architecturally designed Museum. We are happy to offer you a free entry in the Museum next time you are in town and hope you have safe and enjoyable travels. Warm regards and apologies again for the service you received.

The ladies were very busy. This is also the AA site so limited facilities. Looking for information on further travel and not up to date on seasonal nature of other areas

Our guidebook was less than enthusiastic about the west coast in general and Westport in particular, but we found it welcoming, we enjoyed visiting the museum, discovering the history of Westport, and also Cape Foulwind and the nearby seal colony. Negatives? Wi-fi was generally slow to very slow and places like motels (the Ascot Motor Lodge for example) don’t seem to realise that many visitors these days have mission-critical stuff to do while vacationing.

Thank you for all your positive comments about Westport. Sorry to hear your WiFi was slow. Westport township now has ultra fast free internet along the main street. If you ever come to Westport again please pop in and see us here at the I-site and we will advise you of all the activities, walks and great points of interest to visit.
