“Excellent Stopover on our drive down the West Coast. We had a nice room at Omau Settlers Lodge, it was well arranged and everything in good condition. Breakfast was an unexpected bonus. The Star Tavern over the road does good suppers and serves excellent local beers. There’s easy access to the coastal walkways and seal colony. Westport close by. It was only a stopover on the drive down the West Coast for us this time, but it would make a great base to visit the area.”

“We loved everything about this lodge. Karen and Lee, gave us a warm & friendly welcome and great advice about the area. The room was incredibly clean and the bed so comfortable. It was great to have the lovely breakfast with other people staying at the lodge. The location is just amazing with superb walks and views and a short drive into Westport. The nearby pub is friendly with great food. If we are lucky enough to be in the area again, we would definitely stay here again..”

“When planning for my trip on the South Island of New Zealand, I noticed how the motels looked very similar. They were all clean and modern, but distinctly lacking in the design arena. We were pleasantly surprised to arrive at Omau Settler’s Lodge to find it so nicely designed! The rooms were lovely and the setting was just beautiful. In addition, the innkeepers were charming and fun. They made bread for breakfast and served it with wonderful jam. It was one of our favorite places of the entire trip!
