Stayed here as part of our Transalpine train trip. Great location, clean, tidy and close to restaurants, Hagley park and other POI's. Owners are friendly and welcoming. Provided free drop of and pick up from the nearby railway station and were happy for us to leave our rental car at the motel while we overnighted in Greymouth. Happy to stay here again.

Good value and great location right next to the park. Apartment was clean and had enough room for our needs. What really sealed the deal was the free shuttle to the TransAlpine as we are not locals and hadn't picked up our hire car at that stage. Thanks Lena! :)

Only stayed one night here as we were between trains - Coastal Pacific and Tranzalpine, but in the circumstances proved just what we needed. The room was a good size, clean and tidy, offering a good size and quality bed, air conditioning, and, if you needed them, Freeview and Netflix. The staff were also lovely, providing a helpful free shuttle service to the TranzAlpine first thing in the morning.
