    "A pleasant stay"

    Family unit upstairs. Two bedrooms with huge lounge, dining, kitchen combo. Also a shared balcony off master bedroom. Nice little touches like complimentary chocs on bed. Also a basket of goodies for purchase by late night snackers. Was able to have late checkout for an extra fee. Helpful staff regarding local attractions.

    "Clean, comfortable motel for the budget conscious"

    Not the flashest motel I've ever stayed in but neither is the price! Truth is, it's probably the best motel I've stayed in at the price. Everything was clean and tidy, everything we needed was provided and the hosts very friendly and accommodating. Bed was very comfortable and tub chairs were a bonus not often found in a studio unit. Garden seats outside the room and a garden setting in middle of carpark are great for the evening drink or the early morning coffee.

    "Amazing Stay"

    A friend and I stayed here recently on our travels and it has to be one of the best motels I've ever stayed in. Really affordable but excellant. Everything was really clean and the owners were really friendly and lovely. Really close drive to town centre. Definitely recommend staying here.

    Not the fanciest motel in town but excellent value for money with everything we required, very obliging hosts, exceptionally comfortable and warm beds. Close to takeaways, swimming pool, convenient parking right outside the motel room door. We had a very enjoyable weekend even though it was wet!

    Located along highway 6 you will hear traffic all the time but nothing serious.

    Good place to stay and if you like good food there is a better than average restaurant a hundred metres away. Rooms and conviniences are good

    The Aachen Motel in Greymouth was clean & tidy but I thought for the money the room was a little tired and run down. It did however have everything we needed and so we had an enjoyable stay.

    "Great stay"

    We had a lovely couple of days at Aachen while exploring Greymouth. The staff were friendly and helpful. The room was a good size with a good kitchen. We travelled all around NZ and some hotels have kitchens but provide very little to actually prepare anything. Aachen ws really good. It was very good value for money and we would certainly stay there again.

    We stayed over while looking around Greymouth.

    The room was clean with a nice firm bed and good TV.

    The cooking facilities were good with everything required to prepare a simple meal.

    The owners were friendly with handy tips on the locale.

    Plus a nice touch of complementary candies on arrival in the room.

    "Not bad"

    Not a bad price to pay, we had an extra person so it was only $18. The bathroom could do with being updated, shower very poor pressure and the sink was full of cracks but didnt seem to leak. They need to put in a fan to stop the walls from running with moisture and the floor getting wet because of that.

    Bit more updated would be nicer.

    "Great Motel"

    We arrived quite late and tired, the staff were very friendly and our room was clean and warm for us when we arrived including the electric blankets. It was sooo nice to jump straight in to a warm bed after a long cold day. Tea and coffee was available in the onsuite kitchenett and had all the utensils we would ever need. The shower had good preasure too. the tv had a channel which showed sights to see around the area which was very useful although we also got information from reception whom were very helpful and friendly. We would gladly stay here again ( and did on our way back) I highly recommend this Motel to all

    "Clean, Comfortable and Affordable"

    The Aachen Place Motel was clean, comfortable and overall we enjoyed our stay. Although the room was a little dated everything was in working order. The only downside to this accommodation was the noisy plumbing (the toilet was very loud when flushed) and the small in-room heater took quite a while to warm things up.

    Overall we enjoyed our stay and would recommend this motel to others.

    Great place to stay if need an overnight stop. My partner and I were stopping over in Greymouth on our trip around NZ. Motel was clean and tidy and room was adequate for what we needed. Was handy to the state highway (on it!) and close to eating places. Hosts were extremely friendly and helpful. Would recommend for an overnight stop.

    "Good value."

    For a one night stay in Greymouth we found this to be good value for money ($89 AUD). It was nothing special, but was comfortable with two separate chairs to sit in, a fairly modern TV, the room was clean and the hosts were friendly and helpful. Whilst i did cook in other accommodation while we were away, I probably wouldn't have wanted to cook here. We would stay here again.

    "Disappointment with Aachen"

    We have stayed at the Aachen motel a couple of times prior to our last visit. When we received the booking confirmation it stated.....super suite with kitchenette..... We were most disappointed when we checked in to find that we had been allocated a studio unit! The bed was so close to the window, it was very cold sleeping at night. The confirmation notice also mentioned a desk............not sure where that could have been hiding!!! We also would not accept that a microwave equates to a kitchenett!!!!! Mike did complain when we left and the man was really non-committal except to say why didn't we complain when we arrived. It was actually past 9 o'clock when we did check in and with all the stress we are under with the continuing after shocks in Christchurch and lack of sleep all we wanted to do was get to bed and get some rest. Mike also though $175 a night was very expensive for a studio apartment.

    It has certainly put us off staying at the Aachen motel and, of course, if Christchurch people want us to recommend a motel, we couldn't in all honest recommend the Aachen.

    The room was clean but again the bed wasn't made on the Saturday when we were at the Shantytown art exhibition for a few hours and the dishes were not done. We have never struck this before in any mote/hotel we have stayed at.

    "Booking site not up to date"

    Unfortunately we didn't get to stay at Aachen Place even though we had a confirmed booking through Jasons.Some sixth sense told me to check my booking by phone the following week and I was devastated to hear I had in fact no booking because the proprietor had forgotten to update the system.I was told they were booked out year to year for this particular weekend so dont really understand why the information was not in the system.Thank goodness I had not left this unchecked and was able to book alternative accommodation for a very busy weekend.Need to be more professional Aachen!
