After staying in some rather dated, cold, dirty and more expensive motels on our travels previously we were so pleased to have booked into this place. The rooms are lovely, spacious and furnished very well and above all were spotless!! The staff were extremely friendly and helpful in giving us information about the town and area of Picton. Such a... More

Came in off the ferry at 10pm in the dark so took us a little time to find it. The room was quite spacious and modern with a nice bathroom. Was a bit worried about noise to start with as I think there may be a bar close by at the back but having closed the bathroom door we were... More

This is one of the best motels that I have ever stayed in. My family and I were travelling to Picton from Christchurch. It was late at night and there was a storm. We were very low on fuel. There are NO petrol stations that are open between Kaikoura and Blenheim open at night. I called the motel. The manager... More

Gateway motel in Picton is located right in the heart of town close to all shops restaurants etc. the hosts Kent and Marie have gone out of their way to make sure I am comfortable and have great local knowledge, right down to the best fishing spots and advice on bait and tackle for the area.

Came through Picton on a tour of the South Island with family. This motel is perfectly located in the center of town, but it is a quiet town, and is surrounded by wilderness, which you can view from the room if you're along the front. Cute patio sets are allotted to each room along the second floor balcony (and ground... More

Not the flashiest looking motel but this is one time when first impressions can be wrong. You'll be met by a good kiwi bloke and you'll be his mate straight away, the rooms are very well appointed and clean. Great value for money and as long as this remains we would definitely recommend them.

Room was well appointed with a refrigerator, microwave and hot water dispenser. The room was clean and the bed very comfortable. The staff was very welcoming and gave me good advice in regards to places to have breakfast.

Shared a two bedroom unit with friends for two nights. Located in the middle of the town and everything was within walking distance. It's an older type of motel but recently had a makeover. Very clean and comfortable. No street noise even when staying in a front unit. Very reasonable price and friendly staff.

Welcoming and friendly owners. Gave us lots of advice for where to go tailored to the time we had to spend at Picton. Lovely room too, we arrived quite late but still had the owners there to welcome us.
