House & Hosts
Rosewood is a beautifully restored Bed & Breakfast close to the centre of Greymouth on the West Coast of the South Island, New Zealand. Stephan keeps the garden immaculately and we are so lucky with the climate here that we have roses almost year round. The Camellia's and Rhododendrons also do really well here and we never have to worry about not enough water of course.
With 4 spacious, individually furnished rooms (3 with ensuite bathrooms), private lounge/dining room, and quiet gardens Rosewood is ideally situated for holiday makers, small groups of friends and business people. There is plenty of parking either off-street behind the house or on the road in front. Rosewood is only 10-15 minutes walk from the centre of Greymouth with its cafes, restaurants, shops and galleries or 5 minutes to the new Grey District Aquatic Centre if you fancy a swim or some exercise.
Rosewood was built around the early 1920's as a Gentleman's residence by the local Bookmaker so obviously no expense was spared. Native timbers were used extensively throughout this grand old character home, wood paneling in the entrance hallway and lead light windows.
Today Rosewood has retained these features combining modern luxuries such as ensuite bathrooms in 3 rooms (one with facilities for the disabled) and a huge guest share bathroom for the remaining 2 rooms, tasteful furnishings with top quality King and Queen sized beds (crisp cotton linen, your choice of pillows, cosy duvets and extra woollen blankets). There is Off-street parking to the rear and Wheelchair access. We have installed a Heat Reticulation Ventilation system to ensure continuous clean air and dry rooms which is especially great for Asthma sufferers.
Rosewood offers a relaxed atmosphere and you are invited to enjoy a cup of tea or coffee with home-made biscuits/slice while you unwind from your travels and activities of the day sitting in the bay window, at our rimu table or on the couch in the Guest lounge with a newspaper or a book or magazine from the bookcase. This room is warmed with a Pellet Fire for those cooler months.
Breakfast is a choice of cereals, fresh orange juice, yoghurt, fresh fruit salad, toast plus Rhonda's fresh bread, rolls or muffins served with a choice of preserves and honey's plus a great selection of teas and filter coffee. We also offer cooked breakfasts beautifully presented by Stephan with free range eggs (cooked how you like them) with or without bacon, tomato and mushrooms to give you a great start to the day. We cater for all dietary requirements so please do let us know if you would like us to be aware of anything.
