We had a shocking experience on the way to Warrnambool from Mt Gambier. So I was expecting another typical country motel. However, Gateway Motor Inn surprised us. It was clean and comfortable. Staff, especially the housekeeping department, was absolutely brilliant. Nothing was a problem for them. Rooms were as advertised and, for once, matched the photos on the booking websites.... More

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.

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

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
