A lovely surprise to find a really family motel. Our neighbouring roomies both had their well loved and cared for dogs' there were happy children on an amazing jungle gym with a flying fox' a path to the beach (plenty of grey sand, pebbles and driftwood for children to enjoy); a lovely pool and friendly hosts. Laundry and very quiet... More

Take a look at the dead plants outside each motel room. Not one bit of luxury and aesthetically basic! The walking along the beach from this motel is windy and runs alongside an industrial estate. Probably good for cyclists and folks with children as they have a large yard - no garden.

Only 10 mins from city. Although tired looking on outside, the amenities are adequate. Tidy rooms, great little kitchenette, a couch you can sit in without sinking into the floor. We used the laundry facilities which had really clean washing machines (buy the powder for $1.50 from reception). My only complaint would be the water pressure.... So slow and the... More

For the price class, I have nothing but positive things to say about Charles Court. Originally I found it on booking.com, one of the few remaining accommodation options in Greymouth for that night. A call to Rachel (I think her name was) and she sorted out the booking, including juggling around so we could have two beds. My sister and... More

After driving for 10 hours we arrived at the west coast but had booked our motel for the wrong date. It was 10.30pm and the 6 of us had no where to stay. Having called around everywhere, it seemed that all the motels had closed for the day. Luckily the lovely hosts at Charles Court answered our call and arranged... More

The Charles Court Motel is a little tired looking, but having said that, the service provided was excellent and the rooms had all the required equipment. Great access directly to the beach, children's playground and swimming pool on site.

Stayed here a few times. I have always found the units to be clean and tidy. Heating during the winter might be an issue if you come from a warm place. Its location is perfect for us being south of Greymouth.

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.
