Very good motel very good value clean and tidy room staff very helpful and friendly. Close to town only a five minute walk but very quiet. Not to much to offer in Greytown but close for Arthur's pass and Westport. Would recommend. Merv

Nice, large clean well equiped rooms and very helpful and friendly owners. This was a last minute booking due to a road closure changing our travel plans. We arrived tired, but the owners soon put us at ease with their helpful, undertsanding manner.

Greymouth itself does not offer much but is a good base for breaking the journey from Picton. It is also ideal for Punakaiki and Arthurs pass. The motel had all you could need at a fair price. It is located close to the town. The hosts were very friendly and helpful.
