Great Motel with plenty of parking - close to restaurants and other amenities.
Dave and Debby were so welcoming, the rooms were well appointed with pleasant decor, the bathroom huge and everything immaculately clean.
Everything had its place, great value.
Highly recommend, would definitely stay again!

From arrival (Fresh baked shortbread cookies), three nights stay to departure, we couldn’t find fault. Wonderful hosts, Debbie and Dave couldn’t have done any more to ensure our stay was perfect. Super location, just a short stroll to all of the town's facilities but far enough away to avoid any noise. Accommodation is a very modern and well designed comfortable unit with excellent attention to detail which didn’t go unnoticed. Room with kitchenette including fridge, hob and microwave and all the necessities to enable self-sufficiency. Huge bathroom with heated towel rail, heated lighting and extractor and endless supply of high pressure, hot water. Beds are very comfortable as is the lounge area. I highly recommend this Hotel, super hosts, wonderfully comfortable, warm and welcoming…. We will be back!

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
