We arrived via cab in the pouring rain in the freezing cold and were very warmly greeted by the host at reception. We were given keys and directions to our room and an hours free wifi, as well as being asked whether we'd though about dinner (which we hadn't!) and were thrilled to be offered a lift to the local...

Like many motels, some way out of town, but had its own access to the beach. Motel itself was somewhat tired and could do with a little tlc (faulty catches and a broken microwave - but that was replaced immediately, so good service). Good location for exploring up and down the coast.

Stayed here for one night. Room was grand- it was really clean and had a full kitchen which was handy. You have to pay for the Internet which is annoying but we noticed this a lot in New Zealand. We got one hour of internet between us for free but after this you had to pay $10 for 24hours if... More

We stayed here for one night as we wanted to take the TransAlpine train back to Christchurch. The room was clean and a good place to spend a night. Very friendly and helpful reception, she recommended for us to go to Punakaiki pancake rocks and we had a wonderful time there.

Clean, warm, comfortable, very outdated with newer furniture. We had a great sleep here but that's all you need for an overnighter. I wouldn't stay here for more than 2 nights nights however unless I was only using it as a place to sleep. With kids you need a little extra entertainment in wet weather. There is an enormous kids...

We were given a handicapped accessible room, so it was quite large. The room was clean and had a complete kitchenette (even had an oven). The property was kind of on the edge of town. There was a restaurant only a couple of minutes (by car) away. The property was right on the water, although we never checked that out.... More

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
