The Gateway Motel was in every way perfect for a few days trip. It was close to everything and the unit was clean, and fitted our needs very well. All the staff were very friendly and helpful, and the owners made you feel at home. I would recommend this complex to anyone wanting a break in Picton.

This was a great location and the staff (Kent & Greta) were terrific. They went out of their way to ensure that your stay was comfortable. This location was great, on the main street close to the ferry (also car rental locations) and the ferry shuttle dropped you off within a block of the hotel. It has a terrific courtyard... More

Nice central garden area with barbeque facilities and a laundry to one side. Minuses of this motel - the fantastic location made for lots of noise from bars and... More

The motel is right in the middle of Picton, we stayed for one night to wait for the ferry from south to north island, the room was great with everything you could need, very warm welcome and owners could not be more helpful, places to eat are just down the road and the ferry is a stones throw away, would...

Great location and tidy, clean room. We stayed in a one bedroom apartment that was perfect for our family of four with two young kids. The managers were absolutely excellent. They were so helpful and friendly with suggestions on where to eat and what to do. Would recommend to travelling families.
