I am very sorry to hear that your stay with us fell short of your expectations as our aim is always to provide the best guest experience that we can. We completely agree that a good nights rest is a top priority when travelling. All of our beds have a firm base and mattress covered with a 5 star rated high loft topper of 50mm thickness. These tend to mould a little to the body shape and this is the reason for the slightly hollowed appearance of the bed that you mention, not the mattress. It is rare for us to receive complaints about our beds, in fact just the opposite. Only today I had guests tell me that they loved the bed and had a great nights sleep. We understand that everybody has their own personal preference in a mattress and all we can do is provide what we hope will suit the majority of people. We thank you for your feedback.

The staff couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful.

This motel is clean and quiet, and well suited for the business traveller who doesn't necessarily need all the luxuries. They have free wifi is really welcome. The bed was comfortable, but the bathroom was a bit small. I would stay here again when i am back in Westport.

The decor of this motel is getting a bit dated but it is very clean and comfortable. It is on the main road into town so a room in the back half is quieter. Wifi works well and a full range of channels available through Sky.
