The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The room was very spacious and would be great for a family of six. The room was a bit dated and needs a bit of TLC but it was clean and the showers were hot.

Well it's not luxury, but it's fine and the spa is nice even though it is really old. There is not really much to say about that. We couldn't use the pool as it was raining, but it looked alright. It's a bit close to the big main road, so a bit noisy.

We called in to this motel pressed. The girl who served us really looked after us, gave us a realistic price including a continental breakfast. We also received a 20% discount at local restaurant which also was fantastic. It is lovely to see someone who is knowledgable about her town and prepared to go that little more for the customer,...

A warm welcome from Barbara and a good stay. Comfortable and clean unit with large bathroom complete with bath and separate shower. Yes, it's on the main road but we slept well. A bit further from the town and decent restaurants but good value.

Having been on the road for a week, we were wanting to have a 'down' day somewhere, do some washing and recharge the batteries. We were happy to pay extra for a downstairs room simply to avoid having to carry our stuff up some stairs. the two beds in the room gave us each a good night's sleep and it... More

We were given an upstairs room at the front of the hotel and it is NOT quiet, the noise from the highway was constant and in the still of the night very loud. The hotel is not advertised as being on the Princess Highway but is, so be prepared for a LOT of traffic noise, day and night. We live... More

Stayed on Saturday night at Gateway Motor Inn, Warrnambool - reception friendly and helpful, bed comfortable, unit clean. Quiet area. Shower terrible, water kept going hot then cold, and in the toilet water didn't cut off after flushing toilet - my partner had to fix it twice.

Down for the week on business. People were warm and friendly, the room (though a typical older style 'motel' room) was quiet, spacious, clean and more than adequate with space to work and use a computer (though may need to bring an extension cord to plug in and use the table as power points are a little far away)
