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

Check in didnt start well. The manager was happy to have me standing around waiting while he was intent on discussing cars outside with a more like minded customer. His wife finally came to my rescue. I obviously wasn't someone he felt the need to show any level of friendliness or customer service to. I chose a family suite so... More

Very accomadating hosts with an excellent knowledge of the area, the rooms were modern, spacious, well equipped, clean and comfortable, The motel is right in the middle of the Main Street so we were walking distance to everything.

Nice and handy to restaurants, shops, petrol station and Ferry. We stayed in a room with one single bed and a double/queen bed. This had a small kitchenette and decent sized bathroom with shower over bath. Very clean room and beds were comfortable. Parking was available within the complex. We stayed in a ground unit but there were upstairs units... More

This motel was very accomadating with excellent service. Not once did I have a problem with anything in the hotel. The kitchen is very well equipped and They provided everything I needed. Great people and a very family oriented group. It was like I was apart of their family. Thank you Marie and Ken

Have a feel of serenity as soon as we alighted from the interislander ferry and this small town is so quiet. We stayed a night at this place but was again taken aback by the stairs to second floor. So much luggage and so heavy for us travellers who had heavy luggage more than 2 weeks.

We checked in late after a long drive and the owner was really helpful and helped us check in quickly. The rooms here are really nice, the hotel is in the middle of the main street which is really handy while still being close to the ferry. Would definitely stay here again. Great value for money and great staff
