Stayed overnight for a concert in Childers with a friend. The room was very large with 2 beds, flat screen TV, cable (8 channels), ensuite bathroom, fridge and tea/ coffee facilities. The room also had reversed cycle air con and plenty of space for luggage. Parking was out the front and a convenient spot to walk into town (around 10... More

Reception was easy and pleasant and on first impressions the room was clean, very well supplied and designed. Then a family arrived in the room beside us and the noise started. Banging and loud voices resonated into our room. Even when their kids went to sleep we could hear the parents voices easily through the wall and if we had... More

Thank you for taking the time to review our motel. I am sorry for the noise that you heard from the other room and would be interested to know what room you were in. We rarely get complaints about noise from other rooms. If the bathroom next door was noisy this is something we would also like to know as... More

The hosts Nicole & Geoff were amazing and went out of their way to accomodate me, nothing was too difficult. The room size is big compared to other motels I have stayed in, in Childers. I was able to explore the surrounding areas of Bundaberg, Hervey Bay and Woodgate Beach all from the comfort of the Gateway Motel. Their knowledge... More

We arrived late to a friendly manager. Our room was large, and although furniture was basic it provided us with everything we needed. A largish fridge, toaster microwave, large flat screen TV, iron and ironing board, table and two chairs, beside tables, light switches by the bed, bench space in the bathroom and a large shower recess with quality towels...

We stopped here on our way up to Cairns and were very happy with our stay. The room was very clean and the staff friendly, not afriad to have a nice conversation with us. We would definitely reccomend this for anyone stopping at Childers.

We stayed for one night in this motel. We found the welcome to be very warm and friendly. Our room was an unrenovated room so it was very old however it was clean and the bed was comfortable. Our room was very close to the highway however we were not kept awake by any road noise. We did however hear... More

Travelling north from Brisbane towards the reef and other sights? Or southbound but will not reach Brisbane until the next day? There are only a handful of motels in the area and for us it was a great choice to pick the Gateway Motor Inn.
