We stayed the night after coming across from Christchurch on the Trans Alpine train. (And that is such a wonderful trip in itself- thoroughly recommend it) Murray and Wendy are great hosts, friendly and helpful and able to point us towards interesting things to do around Greymouth while we were there. Their units are spotless, all our basic requirements were covered and the shower is amazing. Full on hot and abundant! Murray dropped us back to the train the next day and when my husband discovered he had left his jacket in the back of the car, Murray made it back down to the train station with said item of clothing, just before the train departed. He definitely went above and beyond expectations.

Totally recommend #sundownermotel in #greymouth. Stayed before we started the #WestCoastWildernessTrail and Murray kindly offered to store our car which I had not arranged in advance. He is such a good host. The 1 bedroom motel had everything we needed, all very clean and excellently maintained. Teenagers agreed it was the best wifi on the Coast!

Easily the best central accomodation in Greymouth. The rooms are spacious, clean, quiet, and comfortable. The difference between the Sundowner and the Breeze we stayed in last year is like night and day! We’ll be back for sure.
