Great place to stay, be it for business or pleasure- easily the best in Greymouth. Excellent bar, top restaurant & staff are of a very high standard. Well done Linda & Mark, it's a credit to you both!

We stayed here for several nights over Easter while we attended a family reunion. Our main celebration was held in the hotel restaurant and the food was delicious. (We had a bar snack during the course of the weekend and this was also delicious). The only complaint we had was about the amount of noise from the open kitchen while...

Loved everything! Not cheap but definitely delicious and worth the money. We had Venison, lamb rack, rib eye surf and turf and a kids meal. Cooked to perfection- quick service and nice table by the window,

I got my dates mixed up and ended up booking the wrong date to stay. Unfortunately they were full but did their best to offer advice on other places to stay in town. I didn't see the rooms but the area outside was tidy and if the staff are anything to go by I'm sure you'll have a wonderful stay...

On a local recommendation we called in for dinner and chose to eat in the bar. So glad we did as it was Friday night and the atmosphere was great as was the service. Food was excellent - fresh, tasty and huge portions.

We hadn't booked for dinner and it was full because everyone was watching the big screen rugby. "What about a bar menu?" we asked. "Oh yes, you can sit at a side table." It seems we were given the dinner menu and chose scallops ($17) for an entree and seafood chowder ($16) for a starter. We ordered at the slide....

Stayed at Gables Motor Lodge next door so we choose this pub for a drink as we could walk. Small simple pub with fireplace, sport on tv, a few pokies and a restaurant. Recommended especially if you are staying at Gables Motor Lodge.

Looking for somewhere to eat near our motel we stumbled across this gem of a restaurant.The food was brilliant & the staff well organised & a good sign was the place was full & buzzing.We had a drink in the pub bar first & all tastes were catered for & there was outdoor dining to boot.

“Room 30 has a narrow window that lets in the floodlight over the external stairs all night, so avoid this unless you are able to pass out and sleep right through.”
