Great Motor Inn within walking distance of town-centre”

Although it is bit of a walk to the CBD of Greymouth, it is an easy one to do. The staff were very friendly and helpful. They gave us excellent advice for our holiday plans and recommended routes and trips we hadn't thought of that turned out to be really helpful! The room was spacious and clean with a nice kitchenette which included dishes and cooking tools. There was a laundry facility as well. It was quiet and comfortable and the room was nice and dark for sleeping.

Fantastic location - perfect for our stay”

A group of 9 of us stayed for a weekend recently and couldn't fault this place. The location for walking into town was perfect and our hosts couldn't have been more helpful. Only comment would be that those who slept on the single beds upstairs said the beds were a little hard. We would definitely book again (we had three 2 bedroom units, and one studio) and are already talking about coming back next year.

Friendly and Clean”

Friendly and helpful staff, good location, Got all basic things that you need for travelling.

When we arrived at the hotel in the late evening, the staff waited for us and even gave us a small bottle of milk so we can have a cup of tea. It's a small thing like this that make the different when you travel such a long way to NZ. They're also every helpful with suggestions for the trip to Able Tasman National park. We had a good day there.

Shabby”

Most staff very helpful? With one exception.

We stayed in a standard 2 bedroom apartment. The motel is a 15 min walk from town, there are a lot of closer options. The room overlooked a playing oval, not a park. The apartment was very dingy, tiny over-furnished lounge, narrow stairs to second bedroom. In desperate need of upgrading, somewhat depressing. Wifi is a hotspot, and we had to insist on complimentary, otherwise it was typical hotspot rates. No guarantee of being able to use more than one electronic gadget at a time.

Location, Comfort, Easy

Admirals hotel was a nice hotel & was located fairly close to town.....about a 10 minute walk. The room was clean & we had plenty of room for 3 people. There was a small kitchenette (no stove top) & a sofa & arm chair in the small living area. A good hotel that I would recommend.

Close to Nelson Girls and Nelson Boys Colleges. Large carpark. Easy to find location.

We booked two nights in a so called " Budget " room on ground floor next to main road. To our surprise room was large, road noise was minimal (double Glazing) and apart from the plumbing being a bit dated this was a better room than we have frequently paid much more for.
