Surfer-dude experience
Decent place for one night or if you’re Surfing... Glad to see a place that stays away from plastic bags. Room was spacious, great essentials in the kitchen. Convenient walk to Main Street. Mattress was pretty old, so my husband and I kept rolling into the middle. Pillows weren’t comfy either. Shower pressure was great at night, but when everyone was showering in the morning at 8am, it was awful. The privacy was lacking as our room was on the way to some shared rooms and as people walked by, everyone kept peeking in. Some even opened the curtain to look in.

Awesome friendly and helpful staff. Great layout and facilities. Super clean and tidy. You can hear everything but they are good at the curfew of 10pm. Beds were not super comfy but you get that on the big jobs sometimes. Showers were amazing!! Definitely recommend.

Easy stay
Kitchen spotlessly clean. Room was cosy. Lots of lovely outside space. The ambient music was played too early in the morning and we could hear it from our room. Loads of parking. Close to everything Westport had to offer.
