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

Firstly i was not convince to stay here as reviews here were not great enough. I tried with Hotel, to my surprise it was superb. Hotel is right in the centre of the city, it is opposite to the lake view and very close to market, railway station. Near to this hotel there is Indian Restaurant Priya. But to your... More

We got to Greymouth after several week's of travelling around New Zealand, to find that our holiday company [Thomas Cook] had forgotten to book this hotel, even though they had given us a voucher for a stay there. To make matters worse, the hotel was full. However, Rebecca on the desk was exceptional: she found a room kept as a... More

Having been pleased with the standards in another Millennium branded hotel, we were disappointed with the Kingsgate. It is a large hotel in the centre of the town. The room was overdue investment to upgrade it; the décor, fixtures and fittings were all ageing and overall it felt a bit grubby. The hotel is old and is generally in need... More

Booked here through work and won't be staying again. The room was dated, bathroom had been upgraded however it had an unpleasant smell that I couldn't place. The floor needed a vacuum and the mattresses must have been original from the day it opened. The staff seemed disinterested bordering on rude. The food was good but very overpriced. My room... More

We stayed 1 night in Greymouth. The room was spacious. The shower did not work well at all, no pressure and could not get the right temperature, other burning hot or stone cold. Staff were ok but not very helpful when ask for advice on walks etc. The room had a kettle and a fridge and also a hairdryer and... More

Stayed for one night to break up our drive to Abel Tasman. The room was clean and bed comfortable, everything needed for a stop over. The hotel restaurant offers great value, $20 for 2 lamb shanks and mash potato.

The room we had was cramped, extremely hot without air conditioning. The bathroom was fairly shabby with an old style shower over the bath, which was either scalding hot or freezing. To it all off there was a sign at reception saying 30 minutes free wifi, however once in the room it was 60 minutes and max 50 mb for... More
