Reviewed December 7, 2012

Stayed here for 2 nights with my family. From the minute I booked online I received great service. I had made a special request when booking and was quite surprised to recieve a reply within half an hour of my booking - even though I was in a different country. On arrival the host was friendly and very helpful. Rooms were clean and quite spacious - definately would recommend :)

Sadly only only had one night in Gables Motor Lodge,and wish we had longer. Spotlessly clean,excellent facilities, and owner was very helpful... He even sorted out my IT problems. Owner gave us very useful information on activities and places to eat his recommendation for dinner was spot on. Buccleughs on High was first rate. All in all a thoroughly enjoyable stay. I would recommend Gables Motor Lodge,and would happily stay here again, and only wish we had longer there this trip.

We stayed here for 2 nights on our trip around New Zealand. The staff were friendly and helpful and the motel is a short walk away from a great restaurant Buccleugh’s. It is a bit of a walk from the centre of town, but we had a car which made this less of a problem.

Overall great value for money and we'd stay here again if we come back to Greymouth.

Spent 1 night at Gables Motor Lodge while traveling through Greymouth. The owner was friendly and helpful and gave us lots of information and suggestions for activities and places to eat in the area. (We ate at Buccleugh's on High) We enjoyed the electric blanket provided in the room. Would stay here again and highly recommend it to anyone.

The motor lodge was quiet enough at the back but suspect could be a bit nosier up the front part we scored a room with a span which was much appreciated as i was still sore from hiking on the glaciers !

Staff where very helpful and recommend a really nice restaurant just a few doors down

Thanks for your review. We're glad you enjoyed the spa in your unit. Our front units have double glazed windows so are quite quiet.

Convenient, clean, plenty of space. Bathroom was a bit odd but that may have been because it was handicap accessible. Not sure if they are all like that. There was no separation of the shower from the rest of the bathroom except for the curtain so the whole floor got a bit wet. They provide a squeegee for the floor but it was a bit off putting. Maybe one can ask for a traditional bathroom. Otherwise fine spot to overnight on the way to the glaciers.

Thanks for your review and we hope you enjoyed the glaciers. We have two wheelchair accessible units, both of which have recently refurbished bathrooms with European-style showers. This style of bathroom, with a floor-length curtain separating the shower from the rest of the room, is not a new concept – I first encountered it over 30 years ago while travelling in Italy. However, since your stay we have modified the shower curtains so as to better contain the water, which seems to work well. A recent guest told us how much she liked the access unit shower because it is so roomy.
