I write reviews either from extreme disappointment or super impressed/enjoyment -this review is most definitely of the latter variety. As a frequent traveller, the easiest option is usually the closest one-in this case, the extra 5minutes or so drive from Greymouth is well rewarded. Quiet, peaceful interesting location [check out the old gold mine site further up the road] and...

of Resort Retreat quality capable of standing next to a fine wilderness lodge BUT: heating, electric blanket, side lamps were all irregularly working or not at all. The commanding and gentlemanly presence of the owner was what was arresting and captivated us. Small number of units and excellently placed fairly near the Shantytown. We called on a relatively cold, wintry...

Thank you Bardangas for your recent review. Every thing in the unit was checked after your online comments and electric blankets are working fine when turned on at the wall. Heater was working perfectly with thermostat which guest can alter and we have replaced the bedside light bulb. We have no control over the weather and live in a rain...

Great spot, tucked nicely away off the state highway traffic - very beautiful and peaceful outlook, designed so you hardly notice other guests, new buildings built to high standard and well furnished with comfy new beds, nice leather sofa to sink into, TV, good internet etc. Oh and a really cool Scottish Highlands Steer next door, keeping an eye on...

One of the motels in Greymouth re-sold the 3 rooms we had booked, and everything else in town was full. You can imagine our relief when they found us rooms just out of town at West Highlands motel. We had great rooms, and were directed to a good restaurant nearby. Wish we had booked here in the first place!

Found this lovely accomodation by pure luck and could not be any happier. Tucked away and upon entry even had a Scottish Coo (cow) in the paddock. Owners just lovely and helpful. 1bedroom with separate lounge/kitchen. Beautiful views from bedroom and lounge. Bathroom was divine and spacious. I would highly recommend this as one of the best places in South...

What a find. Lovely quiet spot off the road, surrounded by bush but with elevated views too. Very nice and unassuming owners, who built and developed the complex themselves. Quite different from the usual motels in town. Each unit is like a small house with timber beamed ceilings and well spaced for privacy. Large bathroom with walk in shower, books,...

After a long drive form Te Anau we pulled into this lovely hotel. We needed a place for 3 but they only had a 1 bedroom with a queen sized bed. When we explained our situation and that we really needed a room for 3, they put a roll away bed in the lounge area for us. The room was...

What a lovely place to spend a few days relaxing in the tranquil bushland setting of these well appointed, clean and modern motel lodges. We had a beautiful view from the bedroom and the decking area which has outside seating. Quite simply the best motel accommodation I have ever stayed in. The only thing that irked me was the fact...
