Exceeded expectations

Posted 18-Nov-2015
Pros: Modern fittings and appliances and a friendly 'mine host'
Cons: A tricky little step just inside the door could be marked or even ramped.
Location: Not applicable because we were just passing through, but handy to Shanty Town for those looking for something to see.
Final night at the end of a six day 'circuit' of the upper South Island with a couple of Canadian visitors. A little nervously I had aimed for a 'country pub' experience to round off the trip, and was agreeably surprised to find a clean well appointed version of what I remember from years past as being often a bit rough around the edges. Lovely people and a very comfortable stay, and still the best of a 'country pub'.

We have been travelling around New Zealand for two weeks now and our hotel budget is the same in every town, as it is off peak season we are usually able to get a really modern and nice hotel room. Maybe because of this I was quite disappointed with how outdated the rooms and amenities are. The air smelled stale in our cabin, the beds and pillows are lumpy, wifi was terrible, the heater was loud and clanky and the lighting was so dim it was impossible to get any reading done in the evening. In general, the decor was weirdly outdated and I did not feel like we got our value for money. However, staff are friendly and the rooms are kept tidy. The location is convenient, with attractions near by and the beach not too far off.

Great hosts, very comfortable bed,clean and tidy room just missing bread and butter plates and microwaveable bowls to heat or cook food. The dining room is great and the meal we had was excellent, both in the food itself and value for money. Overall we are happy to recommend this establishment.

Reasonable rates. Clean, comfortable, quiet accommodations. Lots of hot water and good beds. What more could you ask for? You could ask for a good location. Well the Paroa Hotel has a great location. By car, you are about 10 minutes to the Greymouth train station and about 25 minutes to the Hokitika town clock. If you walk about 200 meters from the hotel, you'll be on the stone beach where you can look for green stone. There is a small convenience store next to the hotel. The Paroa also has a restaurant and pub in the same complex. We would definitely stay at the Paroa Hotel again.
