Located back off the highway that runs through Greymouth, the Sundowner Motel is placed next to an asphalt parking lot, but don’t let that deter you. The owners were welcoming and went beyond the norm to make our stay in the area enjoyable. We truly appreciated their friendliness and willingness to help. Since we booked late, our room was downstairs... More

This self contained 2-bedroom family unit at Sundowner Motel comes equipped with a small kitchenette with microwave and hotplate, complimentary tea & coffee and a large TV. Being winter, the room was warmly heated and so was the bathroom. It was clean and comfortable. Nearby is a supermarket, The Warehouse, shops and eateries. The Greymouth train station is a 2... More

Staying at the Sundowner Motel was part of making our Trans Alpine "family adventure" so successful. We were a party of 13 (8 adults and 5 children) ranging in age from 20 months up to 86 years. The motels at the back made it safe for the small children. The motels were warm, clean, a good size, comfortable and a... More

We paid $130 for an upstairs room with a covered balcony running in front of our room and 3 others. Not too convinced about " the views over Greymouth" from our balcony but, yes, you could see Greymouth. Anyway, the room was modern, clean and had everything we needed and we could have walked into town for dinner but it... More

We stayed a night in Greymouth on our way from Nelson to Wanaka (had a late start). While the Sundowner may look average from the photos, the hospitality of the owners and the overall quality of the rooms make this motel exceptional. The rooms are large, well stocked (kitchen and cleaning equipment, etc.), and well furnished. The bed was very... More

The studio unit we had was clean and tidy but we found the price to be a bit high compared to other places we have stayed at as the room was quite small with very basic facilities. For the same price or less we have had much bigger rooms with seating. The bathroom was small also but the shower had... More
