“Excellent family base”
Reviewed 9 February 2014

When travelling with six 2 adults, 2 teenagers and 2 children the options are always limited when it comes to comfort and budget. Aachen Place provided us with a excellent balance for our budget. For an older Motel complex the family studiosare very good. For a very good price you get a lounge / kitchen area, seperate bathroom and two seperate bedrooms. Each bedroom sleeps three with a queen and one single in each room. Room was serviced eacg day for towels, rubbish and complimentaries. Advice on where to eat was spot on and Brent and Janine were excellent hosts. Motel is close to supermarket if you feel like eating in and also close to the local swimming pool if you need to get the children out doing something locally.

We only stayed one night and would have liked to stay longer .Very good location and handy to everything. Next time we will bring our bikes and do the bike trail. Also close to Tavern which had very good food.

We arrived unexpectedly on Christmas Eve after our booked accommodation fell through. We were given a comfortable studio room (with kitchen facilities) and were so happy that we ended up staying 3 nights while we explored the area. Brent was very helpful in giving us suggestions for where we could visit. We would stay there again.

We only stayed 1 night and it did the job fine. The rooms were fine, no issues with them. It is about a 10 minute walk to the city centre (we stayed on a Monday and the centre was like a ghost town by 7pm) Staff were friendly enough.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review.
Unfortunately Greymouth has been through a very tough couple of years due to large mines closing and the Christchurch earthquakes both having a devastating effect on Greymouth businesses. However, things are looking brighter and we thank our tourists who visit New Zealand (and the West Coast) and come and see what the fabulous West Coast has to offer and show their support to our town.
We hope you have a wonderful holiday.

Read and reread reviews but all reviews, including mine, are subjective. We were in 2nd studio unit on the right as you entered the driveway. Expected better for the price even for a studio. The shower was very compact with quite a low fixed shower rose. Chipped plates are never acceptable. The main room carpet seemed grubby as did the arm chairs. I think time for new furnishings. The double bed, though small, was fine. The room was just okay - we were happy it was for one night. Yes, well located - main road is noisy but does quieten nicely during the evening. Helpful and friendly reception at check in.

Room Tip: No A/C, we didn't ask but maybe enquire if there is a fan that can be used during warm weather...

Oh the joys of social media.
A couple of points to note:
Firstly, we do not advertise ourselves, and we do not talk ourselves up to be a 'five star' motel. It would be nice to have a modern complex, but this is an older style motel.
Secondly, there appears to be an increasing number of what we call 'six star' guests. These are customers wanting five star accommodation at a one star price.
When you were booking, you indicated you wanted a cheap price, but perhaps I should have directed you instead to the five star accommodation across the road from us? In todays 'user pays' world, you get what you pay for.
After reading through other reviews you have written on various accommodation providers, it sounds like you have extremely high standards, but extremely long pockets!!

I had the wonderful opportunity to stay at the Aachen Motel for 10 weeks over the winter. Over this period Janine and Brent made me feel at home and a part of their family. When my family came to stay every second weekend they were welcomed and my son became great friends with their daughter of a similar age.
I would recommend this motel to anyone who is interested in affordability, comfort and cleanliness. Janine and Brent are approachable and available to support your stay in any way they can.
The motel is situated in a great location for a family that wants to experience all that the West Coast has to offer. 'A DEFINITE RECOMMENDATION'!!

Room Tip: The swimming pool and fitness centre are almost straight across from the motel with an excellent res...

We stayed at the Aachen Motel for five nights and would happily have stayed more! A spacious, clean and comfortable unit close to town and right across from the indoor aquatic centre which is great for the kids! Supermarket very close as well which is another bonus.
Brent and Janine are fantastic hosts and made us so welcome - nothing was a problem :) Would recommend without question to anyone!
