Breakers is a little piece of paradise. The views of the Tasman sea are unobstructed, and truly spectacular. The rooms are perfect, clean, beds very comfortable and all services top notch. I was planning on staying one night, and due to the kindness and hospitality of the owners, I ended up staying 3 nights. They provided me with many local recommendations, not only for the Greymouth area, but for the entire west coast drive and all of the South Island. Breakers was truly the highlite of my one month travels in NZ. Jan is an amazing hostess, as she is so warm and welcoming, a lovely person, a fantastic adventure guide, and great cook. The location couldn't be better- I walked for hours on the beach without having to drive anywhere. Oh, and did I mention the views!? I will return to New Zealand just to spend time with Jan and Steven, on the west coast, at Breakers! Love this place, and I am recommending it to all of my family and friends, not just as a stop over, but as the most lovely west coast destination.
