There was unlimited salad on offer if you decides to have salad and chips. The alternative is cooked vegetables. The beach is just a few minutes walk from the hotel.

          Paroa Hotel was an ideal stop when we travelled the west coast. The room was like a small apartment and had every facility you could wish for and was very clean and fresh. The owner was charming and the staff very helpful. On top of this they serve excellent food which we were able to take to our room as we were tired and wanted a tv supper!

          The owners. The size of the house.

          We had a great night stay at this hotel. The owner Allan went out of his way to ensure it was all okay. He recommended some fantastic local walks through beautiful rain forests and along old mine workings. My three kids found this exhilarating as you needed your phone torches to make it through. The house was very comfortable and clean and after a long day's driving just what we needed. The restaurant food was great and of great variety. Will stay here again.

          Access to beach, nice balcony, car park in front of your motel door

          It has a nice balcony and a beach access from the back about 5 minutes walk from the hotel. But wi fi connection was having a problem when we check in so we couldn't get any wi fi connection when we were there. Two minus points for this Hotel : 1. There were lots of bugs and mosquitos on the showers 2. The staff didn't take the rubbish out in the bathroom. I've told this to the person in charge when I checked out.

          The staff could not be more helpful. Great place and the atmosphere in n the restaurant/pub was wonderful. We were there at the time of the car rally and the noise didn't bother us a bit.

          Can't believe the reviews aren't higher. Beautiful room. Updated rooms and bathroom. 3 minutes walk to beach. Super clean. Absolutely lovely owners and staff. Good restaurant. No need to go into Greymouth this is a much better stop.

          Great place for overnight stay on west coast”

          Paroa Hotel was an ideal stop when we travelled the west coast. The room was like a small apartment and had every facility you could wish for and was very clean and fresh. The owner was charming and the staff very helpful. On top of this they serve excellent food which we were able to take to our room as we were tired and wanted a tv supper!

          Local knowledge was brilliant”

          The owners. The size of the house.

          We had a great night stay at this hotel. The owner Allan went out of his way to ensure it was all okay. He recommended some fantastic local walks through beautiful rain forests and along old mine workings. My three kids found this exhilarating as you needed your phone torches to make it through. The house was very comfortable and clean and after a long day's driving just what we needed. The restaurant food was great and of great variety. Will stay here again.

          A Standard Motel”

          Access to beach, nice balcony, car park in front of your motel door

          It has a nice balcony and a beach access from the back about 5 minutes walk from the hotel. But wi fi connection was having a problem when we check in so we couldn't get any wi fi connection when we were there. Two minus points for this Hotel : 1. There were lots of bugs and mosquitos on the showers 2. The staff didn't take the rubbish out in the bathroom. I've told this to the person in charge when I checked out.
