Stayed two separate nights here one week apart. The first night got a great bed (unit 13) and we were happy to get a good night's sleep and have a good shower. Hence we came back the next time we passed through. The second night we had a terrible bed (unit 9) - it was like trying to sleep in... More

Friendly staff, helped us with everything we asked for. Helped us look into getting a bus home and let us stay in our rooms without extra charge on our last day. We had to get everything through insurance and they had the time and patience to help us out. We had the buffet dinner and it was okay. It was... More

We have dined at the buffet at Gateways several times, each time quite average. The recent seafood buffet dining experience was very average at a premium price ($40/head) Considering Carnarvon is a fishing location would expect the freshest and tastiest meals but this did not deliver, suggest elsewhere.

We stayed over a few days Its a typical country motel. Room wasn't to bad, good nights sleep! Wonderful food buffet and the breakfast was great also. Give it a chance. You're all probably snobby city slickers expecting 5 star in Carnarvon, be realistic! The pool was fantastic to. Wish we could have stayed longer until the mango tree near... More

Didn't check reviews before I booked here as it was just an overnighter on the way further north. Big mistake. Cockroach on the kitchen floor. Musty smelly room. Supposedly self contained kitchenette but no bowl, pot or utensils with which to cook. Had to use my bubs microwave steriliser lid to try and cook something in the microwave for dinner.... More

Everyone enjoyed the nightly buffets (as does the local community, it seems - the restaurant was always... More
