Spur of the moment decision to book into Sundowner Motel while doing a road trip round the South Island, and what a good decision it was. On checking-in we were shown the units available and given the individual prices for same, nothing seemed to be a bother to the owner. We chose a deluxe unit which we were very happy... More

I stayed here last week for three nights with my husband and we were both really happy with every part of our experience. The motel is a close walk to the train station yet far enough away to have no noise. The rooms were really clean and the kitchen had everything we needed. The owners made us feel welcome. Our...

This is a nice little motel, located conveniently just across from the train station. (But you have to walk around the block to get across the tracks - not a big deal.) The folks who run this motel were very friendly and helpful. The room (#9, I think, in the back corner) was clean, comfortable and well furnished, with a... More

Perfectly adequate lodging with helpful hosts, good location, off-street parking, good room kitchenette, tv/wifi. Room was clean and quiet. Everything about our stay was good, but there was also nothing the stood out as exceptional. Just an honest, clean, adequate facility.

This is a clean, friendly hotel. Stayed for a night and it had everything we needed. Would definitely stay again. Great proximity to The Warehouse and a beautiful grocery store for those last minute items we needed to stock up on before camping again. It was a wonderful break between camping spots north and south of Greymouth. The managers were... More

After an unfortunate choice in Christchurch, we needed accommodation where outside noise would not dominate our stay. When booking by phone, the host assured us the room was well away from the highway and nowhere near a rail line. That turned out to be a conservative assessment - even with the door open the highway sounds were practically imperceptible. In... More

My husband and I took the train into Greymouth from Christchurch during the big rain storm that washed out the bridge in Jan 2013. The train station was a mess as everyone was scrambling. We hadn't planned to stay in Greymouth and took the first place that was available. We were pleasantly surprised by the Sundowner. The accommodation was nice... More
