Great accommodation. Highly recommended. Thanks again for accommodating our earlier than anticipated arrival. Much appreciated.
Thanks, Paul, for your lovely review. Take care and all the best.
Beautiful motels- Spacious, spotlessly clean, super comfy bed, tasteful decor. Lovely hosts. Thanks for having us. We will be back.
Looking forward to seeing you back with us Stuart and Julie. Thank you for taking the time to write this review.
Clean, spacious, warm, comfortable. I appreciate how Paul & Heather looked after me during my short stay, including looking at the NZTA web site to check road conditions on my planned trip back home over the Lewis Pass during a storm.
Thanks for your nice review, Warwick. Hopefully the journey home was not too bad over the pass. All the best.
Beautiful, well appointed suite with comfortable beds and fantastic shower/bathroom. I highly recommend Grand Suites to others.
Thank you, Cherie, for your lovely review.
A fantastic motel experience. The rooms were spotless and spacious. The beds were comfortable and the shower had excellent water pressure. I would come and stay again.
Thanks, Chris, for this review. Great to hear from you and safe driving.
I can honestly say this is the nicest motel I have stayed in for a very long time, and I travel a bit. Warm. Comfy Bed. Clean and quiet. Top class.
Thank you, Richard, for your lovely honest comments. All the best and regards.
Beautiful rooms and hosts. Thankyou for a wonderful stay.
Cheers Stu for your nice review. All the best.
A perfect overnight stop during our travels around the South Island. Very comfortable apartment with everything new and in perfect working order. Thanks to Paul who handled our seamless check-in / out.
Great to hear from you Nigel. Thank you for your review.
Very comfortable new accommodation. Enjoyed our stay.
Thanks Ian/Barbara for your review.
It was perfect for us to visit family. Stayed 2 nights and will definitely book again.
Thank you, Sheryl, for your nice review. We would love to have you back staying with us.
Great place to stay before mountain biking The Old Ghost Road. New Motel build is excellent. Well insulated, very good radiator heater. Very clean and good room space.
Thanks, Warren, for your review. Great to hear you used us as a base for your biking adventure. Hopefully that went well for you too. Cheers.
Wonderful sunny, warm quiet studio. Immaculately clean. Great little kitchenette for simple cooking. Comfortable bed. Less than 5 min walk into shops/cafes. Would definitely stay again.
Thank you, Michelle, for your lovely review. We look forward to seeing you again in the future.
Firstly, upon initial enquiry we appreciated the professional & friendly manner of the receptionist. The accommodation was excellent in all respects, and we enjoyed the experience. However, the change of level from pathway to parking area is hazardous which we both found out the ‘hard way! Perhaps this should be more clearly defined. We look forward to visiting again in the future
Thanks Bob and Diane for your review. I am sorry to hear that you potentially hurt yourselves with the step up from the car park area to the walkway. It is something we have discussed but apart from painting the nib there is not a lot more we can do. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay with us. All the best.
Loved our stay, remarkably quiet considering our bedroom faced the main road. Only one thing that could be improved is to have a hook or something to hang the tea towel on after drying the dishes. Hook in the bathroom is awesome thank you. Motel is extremely clean with lots of space, bed very comfortable. Suzanne
Thanks, Suzanne, for your review. We will look into that suggestion! Safe driving.
Perfect stay! Had all required facilities, room was clean and tidy and owners very friendly and helpful.
Thanks Andrew for this review. Safe travels back to Geraldine.
Loved our stay, thanks so much Heather & Paul, will highly recommend GSM to all our friends.

Hi there Linda, many thanks for your nice review of our new property. Cheers
Absolutely beautiful motel in the heart of Murchison. All aspects of our King Room were perfect. Lovely big room with all the facilities we needed. Thank you for having us!
Hello Bex, no problems at all, thank you for your lovely review. All the best with your onward journey.
Excellent accomodation, our studio room was stunning, clean and had everything we needed. Would happily stay again.
Thanks for taking the time to write your review Adam. See you again next time you are passing through Murch.
Everything expected in a first class motel. We would recommend asking for a unit furthest from the nearby main road – although the double glazing provides effective ‘sound proofing when east facing windows are closed. K&J
Thanks Kelso/Jane for your lovely review. Safe travels.
We loved staying in Murchison for 7 nights and the accommodations at Grand Suites Murchison were perfect. Everything was clean, well appointed and Paul and Heather who manage the Motel were fabulous!!! We would definitely stay there again!
Thanks, Therese, for your kind words. So pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us and for 7 nights! Yes, Murchison is a great place to base yourself and do day trips from. All the best and safe travels.
Loved our stay , very very nice , comfortable big beds + couches, everything you needed there and very helpful and friendly hosts , we will definitely be back 😀
Thanks so much Pam for your nice review. Great to see you and we look forward to you staying with us again in the future. Cheers.
Just checked with the workers who have stayed with you and they say the place is magical. Great motels, great people. Paul and Heather are very accommodating. Love the units with the big photos on the wall, could literally be sitting by the Buller River. Very roomy units. Thank you from the boys!
Hi Brenda, thank you for your review! Great to hear they are being well looked after and are happy with everything. Thanks for your business. Cheers.
Absolutely the best place to base yourself in Murchison – beautiful beds, spotlessly clean, gorgeous. Thank you Paul and Heather!
No problems at all Suellen and thanks for the review!
The best motel we have ever stayed in. Check in was so easy and the staff were just brilliant. The nicest suite we have ever stayed in and so clean and contained everything we wanted for our stay. We will be back and will pass on this fantastic motel to our family and friends. Thanks to the staff, once again.
Hi there Liam, thank you for your wonderful review. Yes, please do pass on your recommendation to friends and family. Wishing you a safe journey around New Zealand.
Great motel, roomy, new, spotless and friendly easy check in!
Cheers John for your nice words. All the best.
The nicest motel I have stayed in on my travels. My room was beautiful and clean, awesome shower. Also I couldn’t get dinner in town but they have a delicious selection of ready made frozen meals that you can just microwave in your room. Highly recommend.
Thank you, Rebecca, for your review. Yes, that is a concern to us that there are minimal good food operators in town. However, we do provide large kitchens that you can utilize as well as having ready-made meals available for guests to purchase. Cheers.
The easiest check in I have ever done, and it was absolutely amazing after a long drive with young kids. Our room was beautiful and clean, awesome shower. Having a Netflix account already logged in was a big plus for us! Aircon was also great! Highly recommend
Hi there Jadah, thank you for your review. Great to hear from you and to see the kids were happy. Safe travels.
An exceptional motel, almost brand new and so beautifully appointed. Full kitchen with everything you could need, lovely decor. Comfortable beds and aircon in the main room. We had 3 children with us so chose the family room – 2 bedrooms 1 with 3 single , other with lovely big king. The description doesn’t do the place justice! Murchison itself was quiet on the day we were there for anything to eat out at so I suggest you take own food to cook.
Thank you, Angela, for your wonderful review. Safe travels.
Awesome Place, Highly recommended if your passing through this beautiful part of the world.
Thanks, Andrew, for your kind words. Safe travels.
What a pleasure to stay in a spacious, comfortable, clean and well-appointed motel. Not to mention the large shower with a strong jet of water. Much needed after a day out on our gravel bikes. Will definitely return. Also of note, we arrived much earlier than check in but our rooms were ready, so we were able to get changed into cycling gear in privacy, not beside our car. It’s the small things that make all the difference.
Thanks, Anna, for your review and yes, we agree, the small things matter a lot. Hope the cycling went well. Cheers.
Lovely for our nights stay over on way to Golden bay. Beautiful tidy rooms, friendly service. Kids loved it and very spoilt with Netflix and air conditioning. Would absolutely stay again.
Hi there Ellen, nice to hear that the kids enjoyed the Netflix. Safe driving and all the best.
Most comfortable beds for our whole trip. Room is clean and quiet. Highly recommended.
Thanks, Ph, for these nice words. Hope you enjoyed your time here in New Zealand. Safe travels.
Grand Suites was one the best motels we have stayed in, nice and roomy, very new and clean and handy to Cafes etc, highly recommended
Thank you, John, for your review. We look forward to seeing you again someday. Regards
You couldn’t find a cleaner, more comfortable, better appointed place to stay anywhere! The only disappointment was that we were only there for the night. There seriously wasn’t a speck of dust, a mark on anything. Comfy beds, quiet room and welcoming staff. If we’re ever back in the area, we’ll be back.
Thanks, Sara, for your charming review. Thanks for staying, all the best.
Highly recommend a stay at Grand Suites, Murchison. The rooms are beautiful, really clean and the staff are super helpful and friendly. They went above and beyond to accommodate us when we urgently needed a place to stay for 5 days. The nicest motel we have stayed in and would definitely stay there again.
Thank you, Kylie, for your kind review. All the best.
One of the best places I have stayed at! 👍 Although this was a business trip, I wouldn’t hesitate to stay here again on a personal trip.
Thanks, Tim, for your review. Safe travels, see you again soon.
Motel room was top notch, nice layout, very clean, hosts are lovely. Could not fault it and would recommend it to others. Nicest Motel we have ever stayed in.
Hi Neil/Jenny. Thanks so much for your kind review. Great to have you staying with us. Take care.
Absolutely without a doubt the best motels we have stayed in. Everything was perfect. We were a little concerned when we found ourselves in a road facing unit, but the insulation was so good we heard nothing. Will definitely stay again and recommend to others.
Great to hear from you Carol. Thank you for this.
Spacious units immaculately presented. Fantastic shower! Great bed. Handy parking. Wide range of channels on TV including Netflix.
Thanks, Neil, for your review. Safe travels.
Clean large units with more than adequate heating/air conditioning. Perfectly located for a break between Nelson and Coast or Hanmer. Excellent friendly obliging hosts. Definitely be staying again soon.
Hi Derryl/Gordon, thank you for this review. Lovely to have you staying with us. Safe travels.
Very clean and modern. Probably the best accommodation on our 3 week trip. Warm and comfortable on a mid-winter night.
Thank you Henry for this review. Safe travels.
This is a great place to stay especially if you’re looking for a break between destinations. Cleanliness excellent, parking is easy and the chattels modern. Highly recommended
Superb to hear from you Wayne. Many thanks for your review. Safe driving.
Amazing accommodation. High quality modern fit out. Warm, clean, spacious and very comfortable. Highly recommend.
Cheers Sandy for your review. Great to see we are attracting Aussies such as yourselves too! All the best.
Excellent accommodation, more than we expected. Beds very comfortable, rooms spacious. The hosts very easy to communicate with, with a bus group.
Thanks, Brent, for your review. Pleased that we could accommodate your party. All the best.
Rating: Excellent. The Grand Suites Motel in Murchison is fabulous – the accommodation is very spacious, beautifully clean and comfortable and at a very competitive price and with a very well equipped kitchen and beautiful bathroom. We found the staff very helpful and knowledgeable. We were delighted with our stay there and very happy to recommend it.
Thank you Margaret and Roger for your kind review. It would be great to see you down here staying with us again soon. Take care.
Great facilities, owners were lovely. The bed was comfortable and heating in the rooms was great so nice and snug, very clean and loved the bathroom, plenty of kitchen space and all the basics you need. Really impressed 😊 the whole room was perfect.
Hi there Mickaela/Ben, thanks for your review. Great to hear that you were impressed with our rooms. Cheers.
