A warm welcome and flexible booking arrangements got us off to a good start. Close to all the amenities of Greymouth, it is very much a homestay with access to the shared drawing room and bathroom of this older property. Many of the features of the house are quaint but they all work well. Mary was helpful with local advice and tips on onward travel. Disabled people may find the steep hillside, entry and upstairs bedrooms an issue. Read more. Date of stay: March Value.

Highly recommendable! Date of stay: May Trip type: Travelled with family. Energyseeker wrote a review Feb Hamburg, Germany contributions helpful votes. Lovely host and good breakfast, but the interior could need a little help We read about Ardwyn House in the Lonely Planet as recommendation and I was really happy when our booking went through. What is it like when you enter Ardwyn House?
It is like you are visiting your granny. We slept very well under her roof and her comfortable bed and got along with the fact that we had to share the bathroom with 2 other rooms as well - we were 2 couples and one guy staying with Mary. Date of stay: February Value. Room Tip: We had a room upstairs wich also had another single bed next to the queenside bed which was nice.
PEIgrl wrote a review Jun We really enjoyed our stay with Mary at her beautiful historic home. She thought we might be a bit chilly when we arrived, as it was a rainy day, and had tea, cookies and a lovely fire going. The bedroom rooms are like my grandmother's house with a shared bathroom. She prepared a huge delicious breakfast the next morning that we're still talking about! Date of stay: April Value. Brian M wrote a review Nov Sacramento, California 29 contributions 6 helpful votes.
The gist of the reviews here are very accurate - this is like spending the night with your beloved grandmother. The rooms in the house have a genuine authentic charm, but a sleek and modern hotel chain experience it is not. Mary, your host, is wonderful. Full of great stories, having raised four daughters and the widow of a local fisherman.
She is indeed well-travelled, and a keen observer of global events. Breakfast was fantastic - a choice of continental or full, we ate eggs, bacon, toast, coffee, yogurt, fruit and muesli - more than enough fuel to hold us until dinner. Bathroom facilities were shared with other guests, rooms we stayed in the double well appointed with a comfortable mattress and excellent bedding.
She will be closed Christmas season of , as her entire family is staying warm with her for an extended period of time. Many blessings to you and yours, Mary, and thank you for the wonderful accommodation on our South Island west coast road trip. Date of stay: November Trip type: Travelled as a couple.
