We stayed for 2 nights at this clean motel. It is situated in the heart of Picton town. You can easily walk to the beach and the wharf. Food and shopping are easily accessible. Motel staffs are friendly. They even provided some interesting tips about what to see in the town that I have not read about. For example, you... More

Spent 2 nights in a two bedroom apartment facing the main street in town. I expected some street noise overnight (stayed sat and sun night) but did not notice any. Our windows were closed as it was quite cold though! The kitchen was small but functional enough to cook a simple meal and breakfast toast. There are plenty of restaurants... More

The Gateway hotel was in a perfect location , in the centre of town with lovely cafes and restaurants up and down the high st. Lovely walk to waterfront and an easy drive to the interis lander ferry . Plenty of local attractions from sound cruises or wine tasting the local wines of the Marlborough region. The motel was as...

A great location with very friendly and helpful staff who assisted us in exploring the region. Highly recommended. And all this stuff just to get to 200 words. What are static and dynamic websites? There are many static websites on the Internet, you won’t be able to tell immediately if it is static, but the chances are, if the site... More

I stayed at the Gateway on a round the world trip earlier this year. Having read some reports saying it was worth spending time in Picton, I decided to do just that. It did not disappoint. A delightful small town, a great welcome from Kent at the Gateway and an overnight stop in a lovely room. Highly recommended!

What I loved about visiting New Zealand was the pristine beauty of the country and friendliness and hospitality by the locals. Picton was towards the end of my trip in NZed with my mother and sister in early September 2014, so this review is long overdue. When checking in, Kent and Marie felt like old friends--they were genuine, friendly, and... More

Really good location and friendly owner. Had really good sleep before our trip on ferry to Wellington and location is perfect in the city center, close to the restaurants, supermarket and just 5 minutes drive to ferry terminal. Parking place next to motel is really good - so you don't have to search for a parking place.

We have just stayed here before and after hiking the Queen Charlotte, and were totally impressed. Kent was great from the beginning, giving us an upstairs room and little tips about eating, where you can get a discount or free drink by showing your room key. Nice touch! The motel is SO close to everything which is perfect. Although older... More
