Finish the evening out on your balcony recharging your batteries and enjoying some al fresco dining from our in-house menu.
Come to Greymouth and make a weekend of it at Breakers. Expel some energy with the Around Brunner Cycle race ad then relax with some great West Coast hospitality. We have heaps of suggestions for exploration of the area - short walks, further riding options taking in some great scenery, or just meandering along the beach. Better still just sit back, relax, read a book and enjoy the fantastic sea views from the comfort of your room.
