This motel exceeded our expectations. With a view over the beach, this well appointed motel should be on your list if you are visiting Greymouth/Punakaiki. Very friendly owners provide rooms that are very comfortable and clean. Top marks.
Very clean & tidy unit with spectacular views of the ocean, unfortunately weather was very wet & wild which looked great but prevented the outdoor activities. We will be back in a more favorable climate
Great location, clean and modern rooms. Really enjoyed our stay. Will be back.
