“Quiet, Clean & Comfortable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2010

The lodge is close to many hiking trails in Greytown - a nicely restored 19thC main street. On the south edge of town, it is extremely quiet, located off the highway. The rooms are large and very comfortable. Well-equipped, they would be excellent for a multi-day stay. The owners had excellent recommendations for local restaurants. The owners were very friendly, trusting and helpful. All in all, a very pleasant stay.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2010

Stayed here twice on business. Great little motels - these shouldn't be compared with hotel accomm - though I have to say carpet and decor, cleanliness better than a lot of hotels I've stayed in. Believe the owners are new. One of the best motels in NZ I've ever stayed in. Spacious rooms, LCD TV's, comfortable beds, fantastic heaters, electric blankets, big bathrooms with heated towel rails. Kitchen has electric jug, plunger coffee and various tea types, microwave and basic cutlery, cups, glasses etc. Very clean and quiet. Amazing service, always smiling, nothing was a problem, food was lovely home cooked food. Very friendly little dog part of the charm. Motels positioned on outskirts of Greytown. It's about a slow 15 minute walk into shops and cafes. Chairs and tables outside each motel unit, grassy area, trampoline, swings on grassy area inbetween the sets of motels for kids. Towels and bedding high quality. All in all excellent value.

We have stayed at the Oak Estate a few times over the years, and on this last visit I felt the motel was starting to show its age.
The rooms are basic and some details such as shabby towels and an unfriendly welcome really let them down. The bathroom was also quite dusty so the cleaning seemed a bit once-over lightly.
Accommodation in Greytown and the surrounding area is of quite a high standard these days and I suspect you can get better value for money (& location) elsewhere.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2010

Stayed one night here. Roomy rooms but shame they had to paint some of the walls in a dark blue colour which meant the lights had to be on most of the time after 1500 because as its name suggests its surrounded by trees. Its 'downtown' Greymouth if there is such a thing but that means its nice and quiet. Internet is expensive($15NZ), has to be paid for in advance, and is extremely slow. So much so that I couldnt even get the most basic of sites without severaI minutes time lag. I asked for my money back the following morning but didnt get it from an unsympathetic relief manager. For that reason only I couldnt recommend
