Motel had excellent king size bed and kitchenette, however the door on the toilet within the bathroom was difficult to close due to space between door and toilet - should have been a sliding door. Good location near an excellent pub / restaurant.

A very comfy stay in Greymouth, clean well appointed accommodation and an extremely welcoming and knowledgable host.
We visited Monteith's brewery, and enjoyed dinner there (helped by the 10% discount card provided by Gables).

I stayed for one night whilst on business in the town. The owner who checked me in was very polite and helpful and proved free internet vouchers and my choice of milk for tea and coffee. The room was very clean and sufficiently spacious for a short stay. The bathroom had a spa bath (which I didn’t use) with shower over. The toilet is set separately within the bathroom for privacy with its own door, though it is a bit of a squeeze to open and shut but is not a problem. The bed was super comfortable and there are extra pillows in the wardrobe. There is a reasonable size tv with most Sky tv channels to watch. There is small kitchenette with some facilities for cooking, though a notice asks guests not to cook anything with strong smells which may be limiting for some. The motel is just along one of the main roads to town and easily accessible. A pleasant and comfortable stay and to be recommended for all types of traveller.

Don't think I'll stay here again. Much better motels to choose from. This would be a absolute resort if I stayed here again. Older man on counter is no good at customer service. A smile would go along way. Wasn't cleaned very well. On the upside it is handy to supermarket, restaurants, petrol stations etc. But is on a main road and trying to sleep at night you get loud cars and sirens going past. Can definitely find nicer motels for cheaper.

Hi Sherri, you were greeted politely and pleasantly when you checked in, the unit was spotless upon arrival and was serviced daily and, given the car you were driving, we are surprised by your comment about traffic noise. You forgot to mention that when you booked, and also when you checked in, you told us there were two guests in your party, when, in fact, there were four of you. Upon learning you would need to pay extra for your undeclared children, you complained you would not have enough money to feed them. So I gave you a choice: (1) you could pay a reduced rate for the children; or (2) I could cancel your booking without penalty and refund you in full (you had asked to pay in advance) so you could stay elsewhere. It was quiet in town that weekend so you would have had no problem finding another motel. You opted to stay and pay the reduced rate but were clearly not happy at having been caught out.

We had a family bereavement and needed last minute family accommodation in Greymouth. The hosts of the Gables were simply first class; in fact the duty manager was a caretaker host! We managed to secure a family unit, and were thoughtfully granted early access. The unit was spacious, wonderfully clean, and would perfectly suit a family of 4. Set to the back of the motel complex, the unit was quiet. There was no road noise, or noise from other guests. The motel is centrally located, and close to restaurants and the town CBD. We will stay here again should an opportunity arise, and highly recommend this establishment.

This is a quality motel style accommodation that was very well presented. The apartment style room had two bedrooms and a living/ kitchen area. The place was very lean and well kept. The manager was very friendly and helpful allowing us to book in a little early. We were in a back corner apartment away from the main road so it was quiet.

Great place to stay if you a clean, tidy and well equipped room is needed. Friendly and very helpful host also. This was the second time my partner has stayed here and both of us were very pleased we chose this motel.
