I only stayed at Buller Bridge Motel for one night, it was the last day of the cycling part of my trip, but midway through my tour of Tasman and the West Coast, and I was staying at a different motel each night. Buller Bridge Motel was by far the best overall accommodation experience I had on the trip, and I would rate the customer service and experience at the top of my list after many years of hotel stays.
The quality and cleanliness of the accommodation was faultless, and the quality of bedding and furnishings was extremely high. A very restful sleep.
The owners were true hosts who couldn't do enough to make my stay comfortable and easy. They offered to collect me from the restaurant I dinned at if I wanted a ride back to the motel, even though it was only a few minutes walk to the centre of town.
They helped me with some logistics relating to my bike and forward travel, making phone calls and giving me a ride out to the airport to pick up a rental car. They declined my offer of payment for all their extra work.
Overall, Buller Bridge Motel provides as high a standard of hospitality as you could possibly ask for. Next time I'm in Westport I will definitely be staying there again.
