WORST PLACE I HAVE EVER STAYED. Booked here as bar & restaurant on site, but these have been closed for about 12 months. However booking.com, company facebook pages & even their own website and flyers on reception counter still advertise the restaurant. TV only picked up 1 channel and that had such bad interference it was unwatchable, Bathroom was dirty and mouldy. I have since read multiple complaints about these same issues yet they are still unresolved. It was so bad I actually asked to leave but as had paid via booking.com in advance they wouldn’t give me a refund. This is not a Hotel is a run down Motel at best, do not stay here, avoid this place like the plague!!!!

They put us in a unit next to some people who partied all night the bed was made leaving the connection part of the electric blanket right under my back so both made it impossible to get a good nights sleep .we complained about it to the management and asked for a partial refund which of cause we never received so all in all a horrible stay and we would never stay there again.

Would highly recommend not to stay here, to start the kettle,phone and bathroom door were all broken. The place smells old and dusty, there was about an inch of dust on the bedside table and on the broken phone. There was mould in the bathroom and the room was unclean in general. We complained to reception and all the lady behind the desk had to say was that we had already paid so we would not get a refund (I hadn't even requested a refund by that point). After she couldn't find any solution I asked for a refund and have emailed since but they refuse. Very unprofessional. We had to book and pay for another hotel.

I can not speak to the accomodations, however, in the abdication of a different publican further out of the township, I can safely attest that this venue cooks the BEST steak in the region. Absolutely delicious. *I have eaten steak at every establishment in this local area, and thus feel qualified to make this bold statement*

My wife and I had booked 2 rooms at the Westport Motel/Hotel on the basis of the description on the website which, in part, boasted a restaurant and bar. We needed accomodation with a restaurant because my elderly father wanted to be able to eat on-site. When we arrived, I asked about the restaurant and bar and was told it was closed. We were offered a $20 reduction per night per room but even so, $125 for a very basic room with no kitchenette or even a microwave oven is rather too much. The beds would have been more suited to a bouncy castle - they were that spongy! In addition, the wi-fi was very unstable and kept on disconnecting. The 2 SKY TV channels had very poor reception and looked as though we were in a snowstorm.
