About Us

Your hosts at West Highland Motels - Stephen and Chris.West Highland Motels are built on our 10 acre property 100 metres from Shantytown gates and overlooking scenic valleys facing north toward the township of Greymouth.

We have designed and built the accommodation units ourselves and run the business which has taken 2 years to build. Stephen also works full time at the local plywood mill as Factory Manager and Chris has worked in the local paper as office reception and also as a tutor, helping adults with learning problems. She has also been a member of the local SPCA for the past 7 years.

Our interests include sailing and breeding Scottish Highland Cattle. We have three children and six grandchildren and a small menagerie of animals including our two dogs She's (a Bishon Frise') and Bellah (Border Collie) who will undoubtedly met you on your arrival you may even meet one of our two cats and will definitely spot some Highland Cattle while coming up the drive.

We have lived on the West Coast for over 25 years and love its untamed beauty.
