Stayed here for just one night after a day trip on the trans-scenic rail from Christchurch. The owners were so friendly and helpful and happy to have a chat with us about local sight-seeing. The room was nicely decorated, exceptionally clean and had a wonderful comfortable bed. The night was very cold but the room was well heated, a case we found was not the same in some of the places we stayed. Greymouth was a fairly quiet town, but I believe it gets very busy in the summer time. We went to 'Shanty Town' which was very quaint and we had a typical devonshire tea in their beautifully decorated 'Victorian era' tea-rooms and a ride on the steam train. Just a hint-we went to the local 'The Warehouse ' and purchased a cheap thermos to carry hot water which we used to make tea or coffee when we stopped for breaks during the drive between towns. There is also a large supermarket next to 'The Warehouse' where we bought a plastic cutlery set, plates, bowls and cups to use for the 3 weeks. We purchased food at local supermarkets, usually daily, to make our own meals whenever possible. We also brought from home a small flat esky bag to carry milk [or you can buy powdered milk], our sandwiches, cakes etc. We should have brought cutlery etc from home as we seem to always purchase this stuff when we get somewhere and sometimes they are hard to find. This time we left everything at the last hotel we stayed at so hope they put it all to good use!
