Review of Sundowner Motel
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 15 Mar 2020via mobile
We had an excellent 2 night stay in clean , well designed,comfortable room.
Murray offered to collect us from the train station and then gave us lots of invaluable info about the local places of interest.There was lots of coffee, tea and fresh milk,replaced daily .All furniture and fittings worked well apart from the kettle which was immediately replaced with a new one and a with a smile!
Excellently located for shops, station and cafes
Good value for money. Highly recommended

The motel is just a short walk(or in our case bike ride) from the train station. The rooms are clean, efficient and very comfortable. We stayed here at the beginning and end of our cycle trip on the West Coast Wilderness trail. You can leave directly from the hotel and be on the trail in a few minutes. We had a room on the backside - no view- but it was quiet and an easy place to sort our bikes etc. The hosts are very welcoming and ready to answer questions and help you get what you need. We came back at the end of our trail ride because it worked so well.

Really enjoyed our stay. The owners were so friendly and welcoming and their recommendation for an evening meal venue was spot on! The room was spacious and warm with a very comfortable bed and spotlessly clean throughout.

A big thank you to Murray and Wendy for making our stay in Greymouth very enjoyable. Loved our units and were very warm and cosy. Murray picked us up from the train station and even took us into town for dinner that night. He also drove us to the station for our return trip back to christchurch. When we got back he even found us a pack of cards for us to enjoy the rest of our night (which we did and hope we did not annoy any of our neighbors with our laughter) Would highly recommend you stay here when you go to Greymouth. Thanks again
