    value for money, facilities, staff

    You get pay tv, a decent room, fairly good bathroom for a reasonable price. Greymouth is not the most happening town, we stayed here as a stop off after the catching the tranzalpine train, not too much to do here. The restaurant attached to the hotel is a very good one, decent bfast offered.

    Decent stay for the night”

    Only had the room from night till early morning. Room is quite dated and old, thou spacious and has a balcony. Hairdryer is not provided. And we were unable to request for it as it was during Good Friday, thus reception is closed. Upon check-out, we were informed that Hairdryer will be provided upon request. Which got us surprised as it is quite a basic item for motels and hotels. Parking was sufficient and spacious For the price, there should be better options out there

    From the get go, staff were lovely, from check in, to drinks at the bar, to dinner at the restraunt, we couldn’t fault any of the staff. The rooms were clean when we arrived and serviced each day when we were out and about. The only downside (which is a tiny one) is that there was no microwave. Highly recommend staying here

    The staff, room, facilities were excellent. Only negative observation was that the Bluff oysters were small. They appeared to be second grade. I lived in Southland for 25 years, the last 13 years in Riverton. They were nice however not value for money due to their small size.

    Is a motel. Had a little smell in the room, but not enough to be a problem for us. A little better cleaning might be an idea. Wifi was not good. All in all it was ok, but dont expect to much.

    The room was smaller than expected. Could not fit kettle under the bathroom tap to fill. The room also had an unpleasant odour when we arrived. However we did not use the restaurant, so cannot comment on that. The staff was friendly and welcoming. If you are looking for somewhere just to lay your head, it would be fine.

    The dining room and the food were very good. The staff in the restaurant and the wine shop were very helpful and efficient. You can buy wine next door and take it in to the restaurant

    The room was very scruffy and smelt of smoke, though the towels and bed-linen were perfectly clean. The laundry was absolutely filthy as was the ironing board.

    This place has seen better days. It's a bit run down and pricey for what it is (as a lot of places in NZ are). It was fine for a 1 night stay. We walked to the monteiths brewery and sampled a few beers which was nice.

    When we came we had to check in at their liquor store. Then we came to the room and there was a bar of soap in the shower with a black hair on it and also a long black hair on the toilet seat. The wi-if didn’t work right away we talked to the owner and he did fix it but not for several hours. The floors in the bathroom were also dirty.
