Clean and cosy motel in a great location. Basic, but plenty of space and comfy beds. The kitchen is pretty basic and we needed to ask for a larger saucepan to be able to cook some pasta for the kids, but they were super helpful and really friendly. Great shower and even in the deep winter cold, the heaters got... More

We very highly recommend this motel. We stayed here during a trip and were absolutely amazed. The room was very modern and immaculately presented! The staff/owners were very, very welcoming and awesome people to talk to! The restaurant next door was recommended to us, so we went there for dinner. The meal and service was phenomenal! Overall, this motel well... More

This place is right in the heart of Picton so if you're catching an early ferry or getting in late to Picton then it is a great place to stop. Don't be put off by the fact some of the apartments overlook the street, it's quiet and the rooms are clean and have every facility. You can even get a... More

We stayed in a an upstairs family unit which was very tidy, warm, quiet and very well equipped. Kent and Marie were so helpful, their knowledge of the area was extremely helpful. The room had great views, endless hot water, plenty of pillows and blankets. Definitely family friendly accommodation. So impressed with my stay I will be recommending Gateway Motel... More
