Good value for money, Gateway is a basic room with simple and clean facilities. Basic continental breakfast was included which was ok. Wifi worked well and was included in the rate which was great. Under promised and over delivered for sure, friendly staff and a pleasant stop over during our road trip. Not sure about the $20 spa surcharge in... More

Reviews on trip advisor were promising but this unit was below expectations. No crockery supplied and just about everything looked like it needed renewing. Price $100, would try something else. Maybe this motel is more suited for long term worker accommodation? One night stay was plenty.

We were a family of 4 and required the accessible room for our son, who is physically disabled. The room had two queen beds and was spacious and clean. There was a bar sized fridge, large sink area, good-sized TV and Wifi. The bathroom was a great size and had rails in the shower and next to the toilet. The... More

Stayed for 2 nights, room was spotless, handy position, plenty of tea & coffee, plenty of heating for the very cold nights while we were there, would use again if we were staying in the area, and the wifi was magic, bloody well done people

Owner, Brendan, very helpful and went the extra mile. Other staff were very professional at their job and helpful with any directions etc. The free WiFi is very fast and a great bonus. I stayed for several nights and I will stay here in future.

As a sales rep on the road, you want it to be easy to get things sorted. Always easy, clean good size rooms, comfy bed and a great shower. Important when travelling for a few nights. Wifi helps for easy of end of day reports and catch up,with the office.

Australian hospitality at it's best. The owner of the place (sorry I forgot your name now!) was friendly and accomodating. He provided me and my family a lovely warm eggs bacon and toast brekkie - YUMMY! The room was cozy, comfortable and clean. Definitely very value for money considering the good location too. The owner also recommended a few spots... More

We were offered the choice of standard or refurbished room, opting for the cheaper, A$99. Lots of wear marks and the odd crack but clean enough. Comfy beds. Lots of space. Friendly owner, if you can survive "no problem" in every sentence. Though the aircon wouldn't honour a request for hot, there was a seriously dusty electric convector which kept... More

Close to road for travellers but quiet, and the new owners are currently renovating the place. They have reopened the restaurant downstairs (which had great food). And the owners are really nice to talk to. We stayed in a older room and it slept four comfortably with a big TV. And breakfast in the dining room was included! We want... More
