Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We were walk-ups, it was getting late, almost dark. Front desk friendly. Nice large room with full kitchen, but price a little high, I have had the same room at other NZ motels in other towns for less money. Had to sit outside the room to get the WiFi to work, and was told that at check in. Room was only had blinds and no dark curtains, in the morning the sun shined in around them and woke us up.

This is a central, clean, welcoming, reasonably priced and modern facility. There is a pub next door with excellent food and beverages

Well worth a stay when visiting

This was our second visit and will be back next time we are in Greytown.

I recently spent 4 nights at Arbor Motel and was very impressed from the first contact I had with them via email, on arrival I was greeted warmly and was very pleasantly surprised with my room. Throughout my stay my room was serviced to perfection , in all dealings with everyone associated with the motel was friendly, helpful and professional. Thanks for a great place to stay

Rolling into Greytown the Sunday after Christmas, we were lucky to land the Large One Bedroom Unit. Check-in and check-out are at the pub counter of the Greytown Hotel next door. This type of motel gives a taste of how kiwi families travel. In addition to the double and single bed in the separate bedroom, there were 2 single beds in the lounge. My husband, who has a bad back, found one of them had the firmest mattress. The lounge was huge, with a sofa and small table and chairs. The kitchenette with microwave provided basic plates and cutlery. Wash your dishes before you leave. Basic accommodation but spacious, pleasant, and good value.

Room Tip: Some of their units have full kitchens, which might be an advantage for families.

Stayed 3 nights in the upstairs apartment. Very spacious with 2 rooms, kitchen, living room and bathroom. Very clean and comfortable beds. Full kitchen with fridge, dishwasher and microwave, ideal if you do not want to eat out all day.

On a lengthy road trip from Auckland to Wellington and back and after three attempts to scale the Rimutakas closed due to gale force winds we arrived at this motel which was booked by the helpful owner of the motel we had originally booked but cancelled when the road closed.

Arriving a little disgruntled we were directed to the pub next door to check in and here things really started to improve.
Met by Ursula the charming Irish owner we were happily settled in to a delightful unit quickly followed by an excellent dinner at the hotel next door - same owners, same great service from Ursula and her helpful staff.
A great nights sleep and off to check local wineries next day.
High recommend Greytown and Arbor motel, well worth visiting in this gorgeous part of New Zealand.

Looking for a good place we called in hoping for a good roast dinner. Alas this was not available so we chose Rack of Lamb. Being from the UK a rack of lamb to us is a rack of around 8 lamb chops stood up. Unfortunately the description given to us by the got in the way of our expectations. Described to us as either 2 or 4 'cutlets', we were expecting something similar to lamb steaks which we would call cutlets, what we got was very small chops.
Thinking the portion would be large I ordered the smaller portion and regretted it the minute we saw the plates coming. Very sad looking meat without colour and undercooked to achieve any flavour placed on top of a few crushed potatoes and some rocket. Weird!
We had expected some vegetables not a handful of leaves. still ravenously hungry we ordered dessert to fill the gap but they were equally miserable. The creme brûlée was less than average and the ice cream sundae more like small scoops of ice cream with a wafer and coulis thrown in looking like something from the 1960'. The otters choice was a caramel mouse, poorest dessert menu we've ever heard.
My glass of Shiraz was not aerated, tasted acidic with a tannin flavour, the Pinor Gris was ok. Not a great experience, we wondered why we were the only people in the establishment when all the other roadside places were packed out but now we know.

We'd been so looking forward to trying New Zealand Lamb so much spoken about but ended up paying over $100 for this poor offering which certainly did nothing for the reputation of NZ Lamb.

Maybe better to drive past and get good food elsewhere.

The staff and management were so helpful. It has just changed hands and the new owners were very good. Being next door to a hotel it was great if you wanted a meal. The rooms were nice and spacious. Nice shower and a nice kitchen.
The main bed was comfortable but only a double. Nice much room.to sleep.

Excellent as always, handy to all the shops you will need. Rooms are spotless with all the necessary cooking bits and fantastic service and care from Amy, Fiona and not forgetting Bob. There are other choices in greytown but this is hard to beat.
