Review of Sundowner Motel
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 26 Apr 2024via mobile
Stayed here for one night - Included a free pick up from the train station - It’s only 5 mins or so away from the hotel, but as it was pouring with rain, this was greatly appreciated Ed hated!
Very friendly and helpful staff.
Good quality room, we had a double and a twin - big open windows and doors to let in a lot of light.
Bathroom was good quality and the shower was hot.

This hotel presents as nothing special, but we had a lovely and comfortable stay. The rooms, bathroom and decor are quite dated, but are immaculately presented.
The location is slightly out of the CBD and whilst you can see a supermarket and variety store across the road, there is no (obvious) direct access, so you need a car to get about.
The location is quiet, but there is a bit of noise from neighbouring rooms, especially when the shower is running. When we turned off the light, there was a lot of light entering the room and we expected a disturbed night, but we were delighted that sometime around midnight they dimmed considerably so our sleep was quite good. I wish more motels would dim their external lighting as the night draws on.
The hosts were attentive and welcoming and we enjoyed some nice interaction with them.
This is a motel that's far from perfect, but where the positives far outweigh the negative. We would definitely recommend it and stay there again.

We were met by Pauline at the railway station who drove us to the motel which was a stones throw away.
We were in an upstairs room with an elevated view - the owners were friendly and welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. The unit was spotless with excellent shower pressure.

The host Abby was welcoming and happy to greet us. The room spotless and the little extras delightful. Close to train station and town centre. Comfy and warm, great view. One of the best. Highly recommended

My wife and I were travelling from Christchurch and back on the Tranzalpine, a must for anyone exploring New Zealand, and we decided to do it over two days and stay overnight in Greymouth. The room is spotlessly clean, spacious and even comes with a basically equipped galley kitchen. Fresh milk is provied. None of that UHT muck. The lady on reception was ery welcoming and helpful. They supply umbrellas for use when it is raining.

Room tip: It has a laundry and a limited room service menu.
