Had a relaxing night here after driving several hours up the coast in torrential rain. Room was clean and nicely presented. Great shower. Comfy bed. Affordable. Had everything we needed. Pet friendly with a safe grassed area on side road to walk dog. Would stay again and recommend.


Great place at the entrance of Westport, close to everything.
Room was clean, quiet, big and complete. Everything you need and more.
I visited with my doggo and there’s lots of green space for her and lots to do around the area.
Highly recommend this place.


Stay a couple of nights here last week. Was very impressed with how lovely and clean the unit was. Bed really comfy and good wifi signal. Paula is great. Super friendly and was up for a chat even though she was probably busy as. So impressed that I’ve just booked for another 5 nights. Highly recommend.
