Thanks Chris for your friendly and helpful attitude. We had a great nights stay in a beautifully clean and well appointed apartment. The room had the most comfortable bed I think I have ever slept in ANYWHERE. The location is ideal for walking to restaurants and the other facilities of Picton, with the ferry only a short ride away.

We stayed in their Oxley apartment, it was beautiful. So clean and the decor was superb. We were extremely comfortable and Kerrie was so helpful. Recommend to anyone who likes clean comfortable executive accommodation.

We have often traveled through Picton and find the Gateway very convenient. Their service is always fantastic and go out of their way to ensure that everything is right for you. They make you feel special.
