I was attending a seminar at Kingsgate and I phoned the day before to ask about parking near the entrance. I explained that I have mobility difficulties and a mobility parking permit. I was told that Kingsgate has just the one parking space for `the disabled' but that the manager usually parks there. The person I spoke to said that... More

Mary is correct that we have only one disabled carpark, we normally have sufficient car parking in our 2 carparks for our house guests but parking in the immediate vacinity of the hotel is limited. To ensure that we always have the disabled carpark available for those that need it we park a hotel vehicle in the space and then... More

I was a little surprised at the dated appearance of the rooms and outside of the building. The foyer was very modern. Room were very clean, comfortable and warm. Staff were all friendly. Buffet breakfast was nice although one dish that I wanted had run out and not replaced. The second morning was not buffet and I was not offered... More

Resonable hotel and rates according to Greymouth. The hotels restaurant offers good and tasty dinner in resonable price. The breakfast was continental, altaugh it should be a buffet. Without any fresh fruits or vegetales. free limited wireless internet, free parking. The room needs renovation.

We stayed here for two nights at the end of March 2015. Room was comfortable, tidy and clean. The staff were attentive, especially the bar and restaurant staff. The hotel had laundry services which were available for our own use. To use them had to buy tokens from hotel reception. (2$NZ per token.) Managed to get all our washing done... More

The room I stayed at was quite small. It appeared dirty everywhere as well. I could find hair from the previous hotel patron on bench top and in bed. That was totally unacceptable to me as far as cleanliness is concerned. The bathroom was aging and without a mixer tap at the sink. On a freezing morning, the last thing... More

We are sorry that you did not enjoy your stay with us, and apologise that the cleaning was not up to the required standard. Our economy rooms are small older style bathroom fittings, the shower is over the bath. For those looking for a bathroom with modern fittings and a walkin shower, our superior rooms have these features. More

Terrible room which smelt musty had dirty carpets, curtains coming off the rails, dated furniture, moldy bathroom with rotting window sills etc. The room needed a total makeover and even the outside enterance needed a good clean. I could go on and on but DONT STAY THERE

This hotel would have been in fine in the 70s but is very dated and has been poorly maintained. The staff were friendly enough, the plumbing was the noisiest I have ever encountered! Reception staff didnt offer or seem to know too much about breakfast, we had to find about things like that by ourselves!

We booked this hotel because of its proximity to the rail station as we did the Trans-Alpine trip. While the hotel rooms are getting a wee bit shabby, they are clean and nicely presented. We had dinner at the hotel restaurant and had lamb shanks. They were superb, and the service by our waitperson Ashleigh was extra specially good. She... More
