Breakers Boutique Accommodation
Ranked #1 of 16 Greymouth B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 April 2016

This must be one of the best locations on the Wild West coast of NZ South Island. Perched above, and with immediate foot access to, a typical west coast shingle beach, each of the four suites has a great outlook over the ocean and the sound of ocean swells (muted if you keep the windows closed) hitting the shore is a rhythm we loved.
Our suite had a comfortable queen bed, a sitting area with large windows over looking the bay and access to a shared deck with seating. We had a very large, clean, bathroom with shower but no bath. The TV is small, wall mounted and the channel options are limited - not that it concerned us - that's not why you come here.
There is a large guest lounge with library and bottled wine for sale.
We had access to a guest fridge, drying rack (yes it rains here) and ironing board.
Jan is a superb hostess, welcoming, friendly and informative. There are many walks, short and long, in the area and she is full of information about them - she also lent us a book on NZ plants when we said we had trouble identifying the local flora. There is a cooked breakfast, eaten at a large communal table, included in the price.
Breakers is about 15km from Greymouth, but there is a character-filled local pub with a reasonable menu. There are many dining options in Greymouth.
We are one approaching the end of a lengthy tour of the South Island and, comparing this to out her places we have stayed, recommend it very highly. We stayed two nights but would happily have doubled this as a base to explore more of the region.

Room Tip: We had the 'Breakwater' suite - very nice.

Our host made an excellent breakfast and was very knowledgeable about history, sights and other information. She made us very welcome and gave us great tips, nothing was too much trouble. We had a lovely comfortable big room with a large ensuite - no bath but and I do love a bath. We had a fridge with fresh milk, tea, coffee etc. we ate at the local pub 1st night, the steak was great but the veg from a freezer so we ate lunch out and bought home some dinner so we didn't have to go out. Our host Jan bought us plates, cutlery etc so we were all good.
We have a fabulous view from our room and can sit on our verandah and look at the waves rolling in, there is a walking trail from her down to the beach. It's too rough to swim. Plenty of towels, bathroom supplies, heating, bedding etc the only down side in our room amenities is a tiny tv. Really nice and clean too. Loved the sound of the waves crashing down below. It's about 15kms north of Greymouth so you will need a car!

Thanks for your very detailed review. Glad overall you enjoyed your stay with us and had a relaxing time - we can always learn and so have taken all your comments on board for review. Regarding the TV - to be honest this has never been our top priority as we are more about enjoying the peace and tranquility of our surrounding location and nature but have taken your comments on board and replaced with a larger screen. Regarding limited dining options, we do offer in-house options so no driving is required but these do need prebooked or like you say you can bring your own to eat in your room - always happy to provide necessary cutlery and crockery. Our local pub is 2miles down the road and there a plenty of options in Greymouth - a 10 minute drive to the south.
All in all though a great review and much appreciated - Lovely to meet you both and thoroughly enjoyed our chats. Warm regards Jan

We listened to the sea crashing all evening and then experienced one of Jan's amazing breakfasts in the morning. Jan is wonderfully helpful with travel plans and very knowledgable about hiking and biking options on the west coast. Great place, wonderful host, memorable time in an amazing part of the world.

small accommodation in a lovely position overlooking the beach. Rooms are basic but adequate and clean. The hosts Jan & Stephen were lovely and very helpful, giving us tips on what to visit in the area. We only had one night here but it was nice.

Room Tip: All rooms have views of the ocean

Jan! We adore you!! This lovely B&B is like coming home in NZ. Our host Jan had excellent recommendations and was incredibly friendly :) Our room was lovely with a picturesque view of the ocean and wonderfully cared for grounds. The property itself is located just above the beach for convenient beach walks along the pebbles and tide pools. Breakfast was lovely with exceptional options and great company. We highly suggest a stay here for more than just one night. Chill a bottle of wine and enjoy the view and your hosts company :) -Daniel and Genevieve
