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.

Stayed in a one bedroom apartment which had everything we needed for our stay. The setting was very peaceful away from the centre of Westport, but within walking distance. Paula was very welcoming and able to supply any information we needed.

Exactly as described in advertising and well presented - Lovely warm welcome at reception, clean, spacious and quiet. The room was clean, tidy, fully equipped with everything I needed. All the required toiletries/teas/coffee etc were supplied. Modern decor, nice and warm with panel heaters in the room. Comfy bed and quality fittings. Very easy to find ( not far from the bridge) Easy parking right at the door. Handy to town. Would recommend to anyone.

Highly recommend Buller Bridge Motel. It was at the entrance to the town so super handy, lovely quiet and peaceful surrounds. Our room was clean, tidy, fully equipt with everything we needed. Modern decor and nice and warm with panel heaters in the bedrooms which was in addition to the main heating. Comfy beds and quality fittings. Easy parking right at the door. Kids loved having a playground onsite and I loved having access to the coin operated laundry located swag from the units at any time of the day or night. Friendly hosts and good value.

I arrived at the Buller Bridge Motel completely exhausted after biking the Old Ghost Road. The motelier was very friendly and welcoming and the room was spotless with everything I needed, including a lovely hot shower. It was an easy trip into town to get some takeaways, a quick meal in front of the tv and then I had an excellent sleep in the large comfortable bed.

Being pet friendly was really helpful. Staff were very pleasant, when the area has been struggling after natural distaster. There was a shelf in the kitchen which was in an awkward position and I hit my head badly when unpacking food.Maybe this could be addressed. All the required toiletries/teas/coffee etc were supplied. Also really good quality towels.
