“Faultless”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2010

I have stayed at a number of properties in Greymouth but this is definately the best. The rooms are spotlessly clean and the hosts are very welcoming. The rooms are well appointed and are excellent for self catering. The motel is a 20 minute walk into town or a quick five minute drive if you don't won't to self-cater. The New World supermareket is very close by. I wouldn't look anywhere else.

Stayed March 2010, traveled on business

Due to delays from our previous destination, we managed to arrive after the front desk had closed for the evening and yet the manager still came down to greet us, let us in our hotel room, and patiently answered all of our questions regarding food, internet and things to do. For that alone, they deserve a good review, but in addition, the accommodation itself was spacious and well maintained , with a great bathroom, and a real steal at the price we paid give that it was just at the end of the high season.

Definitely would recommend staying here.

We only stayed here 1 night en route to Napier. We booked ahead and requested a quiet area. We got a studio about 4 down from the road, no noise. We used the laundry, did 2 loads and were only charged for 1. Comfy king bed, supermarket walking distance, the town was a short drive away. There is an aqua park across the road, good for littlies. Very nice bbq area. Pleasant staff. Called in at Hokitika on the way here from Franz Joseph, worth a look, there are some strange beach sculptures here.

We stayed one night in Gables Motel. It is a good quality, well-presented motel offering excellent value for money. We had a large unit with a separate bedroom (king & single) and another single bed in the large lounge/diner. There is a full well-equipped kitchenette and a large bathroom with spa bath. It has a nice TV with Sky channels, and internet access via an ethernet connection (loan cable supplied) at reasonable cost. Plenty of parking right outside the unit. The owner, Graeme, was welcoming, friendly and helpful. The property is a 5-min drive from the centre of Greymouth and close to a good pub/restaurant at the Recreation Hotel. We thought the Gables and Beuccleugh's Restaurant at the Recreation were the best things about Greymouth.

Jill and Graeme were very welcoming and helpful. Our room was well appointed with some nice touches. Very clean and an enormous bed. The bathroom was good with an excellent shower which is important when you are travelling.

Noisy, smelly apartment. Very rude management.
We paid for the apartment a month ahead - so we got the worst one - next to the main road. There was a terrible smell in the unit - when we complained about it, the manager screamed at us "get out of here!" showing us the door - easy said - he already took our money a month before. In the end we rented someting else - nice, clean, quite Sunset motel near Greymouth. When we were driving the next morning next to the motel, all the windows of the unit and the door were wide open - trying to get rid of the smell, perhaps???? We lost the money we paid for the Gables, of course. Who gave the place 4 1/2 stars? This was by far the worst place we have ever rented.
