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!

Room tip: Rooms at the back are quieter as they're further away from the busy road.

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.

Room tip: Room 17 has the best parking (but they are all good/ok).

Wendy was really helpful on check in. She showed me a map with locations of places to eat in Greymouth and told me about the 10% off offer at monteith's, which we enjoyed. Wendy also looked up the tide times for the pancake rocks the next day which were spectacular. The model's location is perfect for the Tranzalpine train and walking into town. Room was very large and kitchenette well equipped. Plenty of parking.

Friendly, helpful reception with just the right amount of information to make sure I had a great stay. Room is very spacious with all the amenities I could want - fresh milk in a little bottle in the fridge is the icing on the cake!

Room tip: Upstairs gives you a great view across the town
