Stayed the one nite at the Gables. Beautifully presented outage style room with all could ask for. Super efficient host who was more than willing to help. Very tidy and super clean rooms. Comfy bed and large screen tv. Great locations, close to all shops in town. Only mall concern would be the very low water pressure in the shower.

This is a nice modern motel, close to town and just a short walk to a good restaurant, supermarket and bottle shop . Everything you need if you are setting off on a tour south you can pick up here. The owners/managers keep the place very clean and well presented. Would recommend staying here. Also it was quiet for sleeping....

The units are a good size and well equipped. As with many motels in places with lots of rain there was some wear and tear on the units. The laundry is good and the hosts/owners fantastic. Nice picnic/bbq area which was well used during our stay.

We were only here for 1 night but most impressed with Gables. Host Ian picked us up from train station (quite unexpected) and his hospitality was second to none. Spacious room and very clean. Good restaurant just down the street too at Recreation Hotel.

We spent one night here in Room 1. It is very spacious and is well equipped. Has a full cooktop stove and a well equipped kitchen. My only suggestion is they get non-stick skillet. We had bacon and eggs and the skillet was very difficult to use and clean. The lady owner that checked us in was very nice and...

The Gables Motor Lodge is a small motel not too far from central Greymouth (although a pretty long walk). Luckily it is very near a nice pub/restaurant and a supermarket so no need to go back to town if you are just there for the night. Rooms also have a kitchenette and there is a barbecue for guests' use. Our...

Hi Darlene, thanks for your review. In response to your issues: (1) As we explained to you when you checked in, our wireless internet modem had “died” and, unfortunately, it was not possible to get a replacement over the holiday weekend. As a temporary measure, we had set up an older wireless modem to give coverage for the motel; (2)...

Recommend this place to stop off - good location, facilities (except wifi glitches, though manager was on hand to help), cleanliness. Great service at checkin - manager pointing out what we needed to know.

Really nice location with everything you need for a pleasant stay. We had one superior room with spa bath tub for one night. Located directly at the main street. Our room was away from the street and very quiet. We believe this might be with most room. Quality of the room and service from the reception were both good. Pleasant...

We stayed one night here before a long trip down to Wanaka. We received a very friendly greeting and good information about the local area and the areas we were going to visit. The room was very clean and very comfortable. The BBQ area was very pleasant and the BBQ grill was excellent! Shower pressure was good. The bathroom had...

Gables Motor Lodge is a very neat and clean place. The beds were comfortable, the amenities were just nice for our stay. The staff was very helpful.
