From the word 'Welcome' our experience was nothing but perfect.
The welcoming from the Monk Family was genuine and warm, inside their lovely pub,restaurant,bottle store and spotless units with Plasma TVs.

We have nothing but great words to say about the place and the people.

The food was 'Michigan' standard from breakfast to dinner.
If you like your meat then you MUST try the ribs, these are by far the best ribs I have ever eaten.

The pub was incredibly friendly, the locals are nothing but a laugh. Always good to tell a tale and 'pull your leg'.

The units were very spacious and modern, not to mention spotless.
Comfortable beds, flat screen teles, great showers, with instantaneous and powerful hot water. Even the linen was top notch.

Berne and Kath were very pleasant and out going, helping us plan our day for the family. Sending us to all the best spots, some off the beaten track. Big Thanks.

Alan and Olivia running the bar ran a great ship and were very bubbly, smiley and funny.
It was difficult to leave the pub sometimes with the service we received.

The restaurant got very busy by night with a fantastic atmosphere, clearly the food is a hit with the locals and us travellers.
The bar has plenty of room, pool tables, pokies. caters for all. Even the smokers with large outdoor area.

I will be bringing my family back to stay here without a doubt, I plan to keep in touch with the Monk Family who have been nothing but wonderful.
I really cant thank them enough for such a delightful experience.

You will not be disappointed. I have stayed in many hotels, hostels, camp grounds, motels.
This is in my top 3 .
I promise.

Room Tip: They are all brilliant

Stayed in Room 7 which is a handicap room, and has a tiny ocean view which we didn't expect. Quiet and contrary to other comments very modern, only complaint I had was no place to put our suitcases in this particular room but on the floor. Maybe due to Handicap Room, because we also looked at room 4 and it had an area for clothes. Drank a pint at the pub upon arrival, which we loved, so we didn't have to drive and as it was a Friday night, lots of locals were in attendance, and all very friendly! The food was pub fare, and though they were very busy with all the locals, we also weren't overly impressed with the food...not bad, just not great either. Our proprietor found out we were interested in fishing and hooked us up with another guest who comes annually from London just to fish and between them we had a guide! Turns out world renowned! Another wonderful storke of luck on our travels through NZ! There is a nice walking path to the beach and a peekaboo view of the ocean from our room. LOVED the free wi fi, which seemed pretty fast as well. Super nice, accomodating proprietors. Real people. We had a GREAT expereince here!

Room Tip: We stayed in room 7. The only negative, was it could use some place to put your suitcases...nothing to put them on but the floor.

We were very much looking forward to our stay at the Paroa Hotel but left with a somewhat bitter taste the next morning. This was mainly due to us expecting a nice restaurant (as advertised on their website) and not an average country pub. In the motel rooms, modern decor was nowhere to be seen, the opposite more so. What we liked were the size of rooms and a very comprehensive list of suggestions for walks/hikes in the region.

Only stayed one night as we were passing through from Franz Josef to Christchurch so spent less than 24hrs here which was enough. Pub motel, basic room, dated decor, comfortable bed, friendly hosts although the older guy did seem a bit put out when we order a full english breakfast. Breakfast was ok but evening meal (steak with cooked vegetables) was terrible. 5km from Greymouth, recommend the Monteith's brewery tour. Free wifi with no limit.

Whilst the propertiers are lovely people, this accomodation was not as advertised. Firstly, this is actually a pub motel which I was most suprised to find when I arrived and secondly, the room did not have 'modern decor' but was very old and outdated.
