We stopped here for dinner on our way to Wellington and had a great meal. Gourmet burgers and salads. The staff were attentive, the venue is lovely but we did think the prices for the main meals (other than burgers) was a bit high. The food we had tasted very good and I would recommend to others but beware of...

In late December we stayed night in the George Suite at the White Swan Hotel in Greytown, NZ. We were just blown away by the accommodation. The suite had a very large lounge (we were told it was the second largest of the suites) a separate bedroom and a huge bathroom. All was beautifully furnished and spotlessly clean. Absolute luxury....

We used a grabone voucher that included a meal and a night in one of the premium rooms. The rooms are huge and furnished in a theme - very nice and no feeling of being closed in a hotel room! The meal was lovely. The service was friendly and casual. We really enjoyed it and will look for a repeat....

Three of us decided to travel from Wellington to Greytown for New Year's Day lunch. We stopped at the White Swan and were pleasantly surprised. The restaurant was very busy with people sitting both inside and outside. We didn't have long to wait before our meal arrived. Everyone was very friendly. The place is clean and tidy and staff very...

We stayed in the lovely white room which was nicely decorated and large. The bed is queen size and could benefit being upgraded to a king.This room is on the quiet side of the hotel so no road noise. Highly recommend staying here. This hotel is central to greytown and the lovely shops and cafes.

We stayed in last night in the Hunter suite, which despite some negative reviews, we found to be spacious and light with a very comfortable bed and its own balcony. The staff were outstanding: the water went off for a little bit and we went for a walk instead of hanging around waiting for it to come back on. When...

Left the kids at home and escaped to the Wairarapa. The New York Suite at The White Swan is spacious, comfortable and well laid out. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal in the hotel restaurant and found all staff to be friendly, helpful and very efficient.

I have stayed twice at The White Swan. Once in the rooms upstairs and once in the "cottages" Both times the rooms felt really cold and the heating is by fan heaters and it just didn't keep me warm and cosy. I felt I had to hug the heater, but the fan heat is just not nice. The outside cottages...

Only one hour drive from the hustle and bustle of Wellington, Greytown is an excellent destination for a one night refresher. We were celebrating my husbands birthday and our anniversary and were not disappointed with any aspect of our choice...especially seeing as it was a really good value voucher package. We were happy with our one bedroom suite which was...
