“Pretty good option in Greymouth”
Reviewed May 20, 2012

We stayed here for 1 night in April 2012. The rooms were updated and pleasant, and the owners were very friendly. The location wasn't bad, with a grocery and a couple of restaurants a very short drive away.

Stayed April 2012, traveled as a couple

A warm welcome from the owner who was very helpful with local info. Unit was spacious and comfortable. Great shower. Close to town centre and station. Perfect one nighter if travelling on the tranz alpine scenic railway.

Host is very friendly. Offered some wonderful place to eat.
Free internet WIFI up to 250MB. Even big hotel chains don't offer this necessity.
Comfortable and clean rooms. Fully self contained. Our room can sleep 5 people.
A bit of road noise from the main road. But this is the only motel close to the centre of town.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the rear of the motel.

I was on my own, and they only had the family unit available.Just nice as can be. Spotlessly clean. Huge main room with queen bed, lots of room for table and chairs and full kitchen. Separate room with two twin beds. Very nice owners, and a sweet walk to town. Not sure why anyone would stay out on the busy highway. Quiet and comfortable for a bargain price.

With my family, I stayed here in a family unit. The unit was very clean and comfortable. The Kitchen was well appointed. Good location, easy walk into the centre of town. Supermarket close by.
I'd recommend this property.

We went there by a referral from one of the tour site we visited in Greymouth. Surprisingly it was great indeed. The owner just bought over the place and had it refurbished. It was nice, warm and cozy. Owners were very nice and friendly. The room was quite spacious and it comes equipped with electric hob, microwave oven making reheating our snack a breeze. You can find food and restaurants just within walking distance or even a short drive. There is also ample space for vehicle parking. We loved it and we will be back!

Pleasant enough for a one night stay in an elevated position overlooking the station and town centre. The room we had was clean and well maintained on the first floor front of property. Although we were at the front of the property it wasn't over noisy with traffic and saw no trains in the station.
