Absolutely perfect! Don’t even bother staying at Featherston. Stay here as it’s far better. We stay in lots of Motels and Greyfriars is certainly the best. Quiet, clean (super clean) warm, comfy and Greytown is an awesome place

A delightful stay.
What a lovely little motel centred right on Main Street in the heart of restaurants, shops, historic buildings and parks. A friendly warm welcome. We had a lovely stay and wished we had had more time there.

Went to have a shower and no hot water. Owners offered to relocate us to another unit but therr was no hot water there either. They found a unit with hot water and we were offered the option of showering in that unit & then returning to our unit. This did not suit our situation so ended up having sponge washes. Owners handled the situation as best they could. Plumber was there when we left. Have been offered a reduced price for our next visit. Other than that we would highly recommend this motel. Owners were very pleasant... Service was great.. Unit very clean & tidy.. Beds very comfortable.
