The team at Gateway Motel continues to impress. We were bowled over by their friendly "you are one of the family" service. Nothing is too much trouble, everything is comfortable and clean. Three great visits and going back again next year!

Coming back from a tour of the south island, my friends and I decided to grab a room for a night before catching the ferry back to the north island. Room was just awesome and the service was friendly and superb. If ever I am back in Picton, I know exactly where I will be staying.

I, along with many others I guess stayed here before using the ferry. The terminal is within walking distance ( as indeed is everything else in this small port town).

Can't rate the motel highly enough. Very reasonable, top quality rooms and really friendly and accommodating. Couldn't do enough to make the weekend a success - a group of us down in Marlborough for the Grape Ride.

The sea was angry that day, my friends. After a blustery crossing on the Interislander, we were very happy to land someplace warm and dry. This motel, while a bit small had all the amenities we needed and our hosts were more than helpful. They showed us to our room in the pouring rain and made good recommendations for supper.... More

I booked here for one night and upon arrival was delighted to be informed my room had been upgraded. I had a beautiful quiet room with a brilliant harbour view and well equipped kitchenette. Location is perfect right in the heart of Picton but the thing that stood out most was how friendly, helpful and informative the staff were -... More

On arrival was warmly welcomed by Kent the owner, who helped carry our luggage to our room which was lovely and clean. Bed very comfortable and a super powerful shower! Highly recommended. Would definitely use again.
