A visit to Greytown Information Centre uncovered, Jason’s Travel booklet, 2016 which suggests Greytown is a unique Victorian village well worth a visit, also telling us Papawai Marae was the first Maori Parliament. However no easy listing of current accommodation, which is ironic!

Not very useful, but Greytown Information Centre has been proactive and simply printed [as of March 2016], a list of accommodation. The format:

Name of place, address, contact telephone number and capacity as well as current charges and web addresses. There are no fewer than 47 possibilities including newly-opened main street motels.

So if you are traveling by and on impulse, decide to stay, the Greytown Information Centre has a good hard copy resource.
