Appalling service!

1.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 30 Nov 2022via mobile
Appalling service! Visited for dinner with a large family group, ordered two meals at 5.30 pm, 6 pm no meals, rest of family who ordered later received their meals, 6.30 pm queried where our food was, told it would be there shortly, 7pm still no food, was told we are busy in main restaurant, asked if bar patrons are less important, no response, then told they are short staffed, didn’t make sense when others who ordered later were served first! Finally got food 7.05pm, had to take half as takeaway, Have been a regular for many years, will NOT be back!

Terrible ordered dinner an hour and half later was told the kitchen was busy.Then plenty served before us then told they forgot.They offered a discount they didn’t apply and said it was 15 minutes away
We went home for pizzas.
It’s a local bar and restaurant no outsiders

Extremely basic., poor room layout, fridge sitting on bench, one accessible power point, noisy rooms and reception services provided via a bottle shop. If all you want is a bed for a night, this would do but don’t expect much more in the way of comfort

Accommodation very good value for money clean and tidy. Them staff very friendly and helpful. Courtesy pick up from train station we very much appreciated. The dinner at the restaurant was excellent really delicious and generous portions. I would recommend staying and dining here if you visit Greymouth. We will definitely be back!

Room tip: I prefer the ground floor room as no stairs to climb.

The front bar was full of friendly locals happy to share their space with out of towners who were impinging on their turf. There was a wide range of drinks from beer right through to top shelf. There was also pub grub if you were hungry plus a restaurant out back, which was first class. You’ll get well looked after here!
