We stayed at the Gables Motor Lodge for one night on our driving trip through New Zealand. It is wonderful, small motor lodge, with ample off-street parking right by the rooms. It is also very reasonably priced.

The owner could not have been nicer, accommodating us on a large load of laundry that we had and providing a lot of information on what to do in the area.

The Gables is well-located, with a great restaurant (don't remember the name) a five minute walk one way and a nice grocery store the same distance the other way.

It was clean, roomy, and very well equipped. We would highly recommend!

Due to a change in our travel plans we needed to stay in Greymouth for one night. After consulting trip advisor we decided on this place. We were greeted at the front desk by the owner/manager. What a lovely helpful man. He asked how our day had been and where we were headed next. He gave me information about roadworks at Arthur's pass. He booked a dinner reservation at the restaurant a few doors up from the hotel. Such great customer service. Highly recommend this place.

Stayed here on our way to Picton

The beds were not the most comfortable, however, the worst part was that there were Bedbugs!
The morning after we left early so couldn't complain to the owner
Both me and my wife has red bug bite marks all over our body

Free wifi and location is all well and good, but the main purpose of a motel is a nice bed to sleep

What an irresponsible review. After we read it, we immediately went into the unit you stayed in and stripped and carefully examined every bed. There are NO bed bugs in the unit. You say that you left early so could not complain. Reception opens at 7.30 a.m. Our computer records show that you checked out at 7.46 a.m. One of your party was taking photos outside the unit before you came into Reception and handed in the key when you checked out. If there was a problem, why did you not mention it at the time? Why did you not demand a refund? Anyone else would have done so. Given that you have waited nearly two weeks before posting a review, and cannot even remember that you checked out in person, we think that you have confused us with another motel/hotel. We have not received any other complaints from other guests, either prior to or since your stay.

A quick trip to the West Coast with some friends and we stayed here. What a gem of a place - clean, tidy, great value and everything we needed. Great host, who shared his local knowledge and gave us two fantastic recommendations - dinner at the pub next door and breakfast at Maggies (both were 5 star).

Stayed: September 2016, travelled with friends
