Garden View unit we stayed overnight in was clean & well appointed . Covered carport at door was convenient on a cold wet day. Diane friendly & helpful. The studio unit had way too much furniture for 2 people which made it cramped. Shower pressure was minimal. At $145 for 2 for the night fully priced compared to other motels we stayed at in the top half of South Island.

Thank you for taking the time to review Buller Court We appreciate all comments, especially if we can change something to improve a guest's experience. I am really disappointed that you had poor shower pressure in your room, and consequently we have had a plumber around testing the pressure and the shower heads in all the studios. I am hoping that the changes made will result in happy guests! Enjoy the rest of your travels!

Check In - lovely welcoming host. Fresh milk delivered to your room. The added nice touch? Shortbread to have with our 'bedtime' drink delivered too, love it! First Room Impression - clean, warm and comfortable. Added touch? A fly swat in the cupboard for any pesky mossies that sneak in unnoticed, you have no idea how much I appreciated that gesture. We only had one but it was quickly dispatched thanks to that swat. 👍 I rarely pay more than $110-$120 for a Motel room as it's expensive to holiday in NZ, but in this case you really do get what you pay for. We really enjoyed our stay here, shame it wasn't more than 1 night as we'd definitely make Buller Court our basecamp. Bathroom was well ventilated with all necessary emenities, tea/coffee etc. provided, cutlery and crockery, toaster, microwave, mini fridge, extra pillows and blankets, heaters, 2 lounge chairs alongside a desk with 2 chairs also. Walking distance to bars, restaurants and Supermarket. You can walk the main street with ease.

So pleased you took a chance on us! Thank you for your great review. I am sure you are the first person over the years to praise the flyswat! We would have loved you to stay longer, but we are very pleased we were a good fit for you. Kind regards Diana and Ray

We were on a West Coast Roadie so only had one night here but they were so welcoming. On arrival we were offered shortbread (which we accepted as everyone said how good it was). I had made the decision to stay here based on Tripadvisor reviews and I'm glad we did. This was our third different location in three nights and was the best bed during that time! I'm not the worlds best sleeper but this was just just like my bed at home so I was a happy campy. Lovely big bath towels too which is just so good. The room wasn't huge but was really well appointed. Short walk to a lovely walk along the river front. After we left Diane texted to ask if a phone and some contacts were ours - they weren't - but this is the first time I have ever been contacted by a lodging about Found property. Very big tick in my books.

Thank you for your lovely review. I am so pleased you felt at home here, and had time for a walk. Make sure you stay longer next time to do the Cape Foulwind Lighthouse Walk and the Charming Creek Walkway : both are listed in the 10 Best walks in New Zealand. Enjoy the rest of your West Coast Roadie, lovely to have you stay.

A great motel to stay in. Friendly owners. We got homemade shortbread on arrival. Very nicely set out room. Terrific shower and lovely toiletries. Only fault is one that a lot of motels have of the microwave being far to high. There were even small tongs for the removal of the teabags from the cup. It is these extra thoughtful things that make a difference.

Thank you for your lovely review. It is good to get feedback that is constructive, and your comment re microwave height has got us to order mini single step stools to put in those particular units. I use one in my kitchen, so I feel guilty that I have never thought our guests would like one too!! Hope you had a lovely stay on the west coast and will be back one day.
