I stayed at this hotel with my 2 daughters for 5 days while visiting family from interstate. The rooms were clean and spacious with all of the amenities I needed and found the staff helpful and courteous in every way. All in all a great place to stay and would definately recommend.

We stayed here in first week of january. The rooms were big though but were not comfortable. They had a stinky smell which later on was taken care of. It was a spa room which just had a jacuzzi and that wasn't included in it. we had to pay extra for using it. There was nobody at the reception who... More

Wow what a find. Ample room to move about in. I booked a twin share room and was pleasantly surprised to find 2 queen beds in our room on arrival. The bathroom was clean and spacious. Even though the motel is near the main highway, we could not hear the traffic. What a wonderful motel that was very reasonably priced.... More

Travelled with an infant for 5 hours and when we got there they told us rooms had been double booked through no fault of theirs but through booking.com. We weren't ever contacted or informed regarding the mistake. But that was ok these things happen. we could have lived with that. The worst part of it all was the owners attitude.... More

After booking this motel on line it was fair to say we were disgusted with what was to follow. $300.00 for a night in this place is just absurd. First of all the key didn't work properly,apparently my fault as I didn wriggle it enough to make it work. Once entering the studio apartment we were disgusted with the condition... More

Stopped after travelling Great Ocean Road, comfortable room and bed, we used the BBQ which was handy in pool area and nice & clean. Shops were in walking distance just had to run the gauntlet to cross the highway.

Dear Rohanj1 Thank you for taking the time to review the Gateway Motor Inn Warrnambool, very much appreciated. The reason for the vanity just outside the bathroom is due to a corner Spa in the bathroom. We are currently renovating some bathrooms to remove the Spa and fit a new vanity. Keep an eye out for these rooms. The TV's... More

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.
