My room (unit 2) was spotlessly clean and spacious. The motel is 1980s retro but all the fixtures worked well, especially the shower was nice and strong. The bed was superbly comfortable and while there is some noise from the nearby main road, it was easy to get a good night's sleep. Another nice touch was the plunger plus coffee... More

Charles Court Motel is a no frills establishment at the entrance to Greymouth (from the south). The rooms are clean with nearly everything that you'd need in a self-contained motel room, with TV, kitchenette, double bed, spa bath and Wi-fi (1st hour free). It is a wee bit (NZ term) of a drive to local shops and restaurants. The hosts... More

The Motel room itself was tidy enough but the biggest problem we had was the bedrooms were very stuffy as we could not open the windows because of the mosquitoes. There were no flyscreens for windows or doors and no fan provided.Disappointed in this one

We stayed there one night, we really liked it. The room was clean, with basic equipment. What we enjoyed most was the kids playground and the location. The motel has a direct beach access, we had a nice evening watching the sunsets and the stars. Only drawback, it can be a bit noisy due to the main road.

Clean. Beds are comfy. Very old looking furnishings and tired looking motel. It is safe and clean with kind owners. Easy walk to the beach, but swimming is not advised in this area. It is ok if you want to use it as a base for local excursions each day, but not a place to relax for a few days.... More

Booked through iSite, this was a case of a sight unseen property. There was a coast to coast athletic event going on in the area and few if any rooms available. This room had terrible carpet odor, the kitchenette was in need of an update and the furnishings were old and soiled. However, I can't complain about the bathroom. It... More

This hotel is old and very basic but for a small town like Greymouth we weren't sure there would be much better to choose from. The rooms were fine and the towels were fluffy but it was a very average if not dated room. Fine for one night but you probably wouldn't want to stay here too many nights. The... More

Some of the things on offer at Charles Court : a swimming pool, a private hot tub, a games room, a barbecue area, an hour of free wi-fi, an insanely great flying fox/playground, a path right onto the beach. The people who run this place were very friendly, even when we called them just before office closing time for help... More

We only intended staying 1 night at Charles Court but had such a great nights sleep we extended out to 2. From our observation there are trucks going past but they all seem to go home at about 9 p.m The unit was one of the nicest we stayed in, being so spacious and tastefully decorated. The owners Rachel and... More

We stayed here for one night, as the kids were tired of driving. Although it was clean and the beds were comfy enough, we wished we'd gone an extra 30 mins down the road to Hokitika, which we visited the next morning. Nothing in the motel unit worked properly, from the wifi to the cooktop and jug. Being right on... More
