Whilst a bit outdated and needing some upgrading we could not fault the staff . The dining facilities were ok and the food was very good. Full or Continental breakfast were available and the breakfast was a bit of a rush as there are many tour groups using the hotel. Our room was adequate whilst not over the top and...

i have literally no words for Greymouth, including this hotel. Could be perfect as a cheap and poor stop over for/to the west coast. Slept here one night but it all seems so... Untidy inside that gave me a bad experience. Won't sleep here again.

Have also stated here in past. Pretty average, but not many choices in greymouth. Room was fine and had new bathroom, but it was swelteringly hot and we had a bad sleep. We expect air conditioning or at least a fan in a "superior" room. Will probably try somewhere else next time

Stayed here briefly when I was visiting Pancake Rocks, ok place, a bit dated rooms and facilities, lots of tour group stays here. I trust the Kingsgate hotel brand, so I normally book my holidays with Kingsgate. Average and modern rooms, pretty average comparing to other Kingsgate Hotels.

Even upon arrival this hotel looks and feels depressing. It smells old when you enter, the rooms are even worse. The interior was last updated in the 70's we guess. Except for the elevator and tv's. Do yourself a favour and book one of the motels instead. This place should be demolished.

Not sure why, but I didn't read the reviews of this place before booking here. It's a real step back in time, but not in a good way. This place hasn't had anything done to it since the 1970's, except there are now flat screen TV's in the rooms. Wifi isn't available in the hotel, even for a fee. You...

I have stayed at the Greymouth Kingsgate twice in the last month, the new menu is really good, and is great value for the price. Some rooms are a bit dated but overall not too bad. Wifi is very expensive and way overpriced, the first 30 minutes should be free. You can however get the very good local Greymouth newspaper...

This hotel is very average. The decor is dated and once you leave the foyer, it does smell like an older hotel (slightly musty). But it is clean. Our shower was blocked in our room and when we rang reception, she had a poor attitude ("What do you expect me to do about it?") But with encouragement from my husband...

I was impressed with the room, breakfast and service we had on a weekend special, using our Superannuate's Gold Card, as well. The room was very clean and comfortable and may have had old fashioned decor, but for the cost ( for Bed and breakfast) was very good value.
