You could tell that this once was a lovely Hotel but time has hit it badly. The entire place smelt quite mouldy and the rooms were very damp. Not great when you have asthma. Also the beds were quite uncomfortable. Host was lovely and did give us some advice on things to do in Greymouth as its only a small... More

The restaurant had lovely food at a good price. Staff were friendly and helpful The room had a double and a single bed. The... More

Do not stay in greymouth... Literally nothing to do. Kingsgate hotel smelled really bad throughout including the restaurant. It was dark & dingey with no ventilation. We couldn't sleep all night because of strong wind coming through the balcony doors & making loud noises! There were 2 beds in the room but the queen size completely sunk in the middle... More

I stayed for one night as a single traveller in an economy room. Very spacious had a double and single bed. Good room service menu very reasonably priced. Although I ordered chicken vindaloo and got what I would call a korma however when I said it was not a vindaloo they did not charge me for it which was excellent... More

We had a function in Greymouth and didn't want to drink and drive, so booked a room at the Kingsgate. The room was dated, but clean and tidy - I'm pretty picky about cleanliness and didn't have any complaints about the room. The sheets were crisp and clean, the bed comfortable. We had a free breakfast and the food was... More

The hotel has obviously had a make-over, so it wasn't too bad, but it is still a slightly tired remnant of the 1980s. I managed to get a suite which gave me plenty of room. The bathroom was clean and tidy, and the in-room wifi was reasonably good but didn't allow for much download. The dining room was busy both... More

My daughter and I stayed here whilst traveling on the Trans Alpine, and found the room clean and tidy with a lovely balcony looking towards the river promenade. Though in the middle of town it was very a quiet night with only the sound of waves breaking the stillness. We had dinner in the bar. The staff were very friendly... More

Where do you begin when everything from start to finish is horrible. We stayed here while on a tour of NZ for 2 nights. The room was dirty, outdated and noisy. The bathroom sink had an old moldy rubber stopper sitting on it that we refused to touch and it was impossible to get the water temperature adjusted for a... More
