We have often stayed at the Gateway on our annual trips north for the last twenty years. Nothing has changed over the years. It still provides a clean bed, reasonably clean rooms and amenities and a hot shower, but it's getting really tired. The owners would do well to reinvest and renovate to bring this motel up to current standard... More

We have been staying here for years and I think it is getting too run down. Although the rooms are large enough they smell and the shower/bath is disgusting , they really need to be re tiled. The towels were worse than rags. Reception staff were friendly however one of the waitresses was so unfriendly she made our dinner unpleasant.... More

We called for their Saturday Seafood Smorgasborg two weeks back and would recommend the cuisine to all. The range of seafoods was excellent, fresh and beautifully presented. At a reasonable cost and live music added to the ambience.

Stayed here overnight. The room had a smell to it and all the towels should have been used as an rag as they were so old and hard. I didn't felt right as it wasn't dirty but as everything was old and it did feel that way. We were going to complain but as we drove all day we were... More

Stayed here twice and rooms were exactly what we needed with good size living room. We had breakfast at the restaurant which was a bit disappointing as the food was not that fresh or varied. We were told we can use the free WiFi in reception... If it works....and it didnt.

We booked a 2 bedroom apartment. It was a big, clean apartment and there was nothing to complain about. It wasn't glamorous but it never states that it is. We had the breakfast which was slightly lacking in variety. We didn't use the pool but it looked nice.

Turned up at night in the aftermath of cyclone Olwyn being unable to get through to Coral Bay. The lady (owner) couldn't have been nicer, more helpful, accommodating and friendly and I know she arranged a generator for her guests the previous night when there was no power. She is hospitality personified. Definitely in the right profession even though she'd... More

Spent three days here when we were evacuated from Coral Bay because of Cyclone Olwyn. We were so pleased we pulled in at the Gatway instead of going to the Civic Centre. Even though we had no power the day the cyclone hit us, we enjoyed a superb seafood buffet in the evening. A generator was installed to ensure we... More

Room was basic but adequate for an overnighter. Price was a little expensive but compared to the rest of northwest not too bad. Air con was good, room was clean, bed comfy and staff were very friendly and accommodating. Food was great. Will stay here again.

We stayed after a long day on the road we booked in and paid $140 per night which was around average for Carnarvon but when we got to the room, there was a musty smell until we put the aircon on. When I went to make a coffee the cup were dirty and unmatched 2 white of different shapes 1... More
