The Gateway is easy to find on the road into Kadina from Adelaide. The grounds are pleasant and tranquil while the staff have a friendly efficiency. The rooms are large with good quality furnishings but the bare brick walls are a turn-off. The attached bistro is a bit slow but the food was good while breakfast was good - even... More

A great Hotel for a base for the area or for just an overnight stop. The rooms are clean and spacious. The managers are friendly and helpful. The Restraunt next door is good also though I mainly opted to head to town for a pub meal.

We spent one night here and received a warm, efficient welcome from Lyle. The motel is set back from the main road so noise isn't an issue and there is a lovely garden outside the non-parking end of the unit. The unit itself is very spacious and contained everything we required and was very comfortable. The only downside during our... More

Thank you for your kind words. Unfortunately the carpet was only 1 or 2 days old when you stayed and we didn't realize that the carpet odour was as bad as it was. Please accept our apologies. We are now warning guests about the carpet odour however it does appear to be dissipating quite quickly and shouldn't be noticeable in... More

The motel was in an easy, quiet location, with ample parking. The rooms were very comfortable and well equipped. The staff were very accommodating with a last minute room change and early check in. Can highly recommend.

The Motel is easy to find as you approach Kadina from Adelaide. It has clean and well equipped comfortable rooms. The Bistro offers a good Dining experience in a relaxed atmosphere. Would be a good family friendly venue.

It is not easy to find quality accomodation in Kadina, there tends to be more towards Walaroo and Moonta. This place is on the outskirts of town, just as you are heading into Kadina coming from Adelaide. The room I was in was quite large consistening of a double bed, single bed and a sofa, which represents good value for... More

I stayed only one night for family catch up. It was a hot day and it was so good to walk into a nice cool room as the air-con had been put on prior to our arrival. The room was large and spotlessly clean. It contained a double & single bed plus lounge, chair, a table & chairs, microwave, coffee... More

Large clean room, with a big comfy bed. Tea & cofee facilities available in room. Had dinner in the Bistro next door and... More

On the outskirts of Kadina is a motel. ..This motel is a little oasis. It has a swimming pool and restaurant We were lucky enough to see a blue tongue Lizard as well. ...Close enough to Kadina to sight see but home again to mother nature
