Lovely Hosts, free Parking and Wifi... The Room was nice, everything was clean! Comfy Bed! Big TV, small Kittchenette... Bathroom was a bit small, but clean as well! We do recommend the Aachen Place Motel

This was our second stay at Aachen Place Motel, and we felt like we were family. Brent and Janine were very friendly and helpful and our unit....actually an apartment....was extremely comfortable and well-equipped - felt like home! The motel is very handy to town and supermarkets - a perfect location and we wished we were staying longer.....next time hopefully.

Our room was clean and tidy, although quite small with queen bed and single bed in the main "lounge" area. The hosts were friendly and helpful. A little way out of town, on the main road, but we had no issue with traffic noise.

We stayed in room 2 for 1 night in February 2014. Clean and comfortable. The units have full glass doors and windows that open on to a central courtyard/car parking area so you need to have all your curtains drawn to obtain any privacy. Small amount of traffic noise due to the motel being located on a busy highway but... More

When travelling with six 2 adults, 2 teenagers and 2 children the options are always limited when it comes to comfort and budget. Aachen Place provided us with a excellent balance for our budget. For an older Motel complex the family studiosare very good. For a very good price you get a lounge / kitchen area, seperate bathroom and two... More

We only stayed one night and would have liked to stay longer .Very good location and handy to everything. Next time we will bring our bikes and do the bike trail. Also close to Tavern which had very good food.

We arrived unexpectedly on Christmas Eve after our booked accommodation fell through. We were given a comfortable studio room (with kitchen facilities) and were so happy that we ended up staying 3 nights while we explored the area. Brent was very helpful in giving us suggestions for where we could visit. We would stay there again.

We only stayed 1 night and it did the job fine. The rooms were fine, no issues with them. It is about a 10 minute walk to the city centre (we stayed on a Monday and the centre was like a ghost town by 7pm) Staff were friendly enough.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. Unfortunately Greymouth has been through a very tough couple of years due to large mines closing and the Christchurch earthquakes both having a devastating effect on Greymouth businesses. However, things are looking brighter and we thank our tourists who visit New Zealand (and the West Coast) and come and see... More

Read and reread reviews but all reviews, including mine, are subjective. We were in 2nd studio unit on the right as you entered the driveway. Expected better for the price even for a studio. The shower was very compact with quite a low fixed shower rose. Chipped plates are never acceptable. The main room carpet seemed grubby as did the... More

Oh the joys of social media. A couple of points to note: Firstly, we do not advertise ourselves, and we do not talk ourselves up to be a 'five star' motel. It would be nice to have a modern complex, but this is an older style motel. Secondly, there appears to be an increasing number of what we call 'six... More

I had the wonderful opportunity to stay at the Aachen Motel for 10 weeks over the winter. Over this period Janine and Brent made me feel at home and a part of their family. When my family came to stay every second weekend they were welcomed and my son became great friends with their daughter of a similar age. I... More
