Westway Homestay B&B
Westway Homestay B&B is a quality bed and breakfast establishment located 10 minutes north of Greymouth in a quiet valley with hillsides covered in native bush. Whether you are travelling on your own, as a couple or in a small group, your hosts at Westway aim to make your stay enjoyable and relaxing.
Westway’s three guest bedrooms and two guest bathrooms are configured to be ideal for multi-generational family groups: grandparents on the ground floor, parents in the first-floor room with ensuite, and kids in the twin room, half a floor above the parents’ room. We also have a spacious lounge area, veranda, deck and garden for guests to enjoy.
Make the most of your holiday and stay at Westway Homestay!
There’s fascinating local history on the property in the form of an historic tunnel that dates back to 1904. New Zealand’s first State-owned coal mine was located further up the valley and coal was transported through the tunnel on a twin-track rope way to coal storage bins and then on by rail to the port in Greymouth. The coal from this area was much in demand for domestic and export markets.
The mine has long since gone and these days glow worms inhabit the tunnel and its cutting. There are always glow worms to see after dark but their numbers vary; when they cooperate it’s easy to think that the stars come right down to the ground.
The tourism slogan “Untamed Natural Wilderness” is also appropriate for Westway’s setting and your hosts have a fund of knowledge that will make all the difference to your West Coast experience. Like the other residents of the West Coast we’re known as “Coasters” – a friendly and hospitable lot.
