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. It's kept up-to-date, friendly family run and with an ingenious in-room hot breakfast delivery that... More

We spent 2 nights recently at the Gateway Motel. Although on the main road there is absolutely no noise from traffic. The rooms are large, clean and recently renovated. From the moment we arrived till we left we could not find any reason to fault this place. An easy 15 minute walk to town and the various eating places. We... More

I was driving through again for a business trip. I made a last minute booking. The service team was extremely gracious and warm; I believe it was Geoff and Nicole. My room was clean and comfortable. Among the other hotels in the town, this one is by far the best hotel. I definitely will be staying here again and strongly... More

We have stayed here before and it was the first place we called when we needed to return to Childers. It is always a wonderful experience. Excellent service and comfortable rooms. Plenty of good food options for room service too, but we chose some local chinese food that was wonderful. I would recommend this hotel in a heartbeat and will... More

Writing this as I sit in our family room. Service is fantastic - Geoff is polite, helpful and well spoken. Accommodated our needs at the last minute with no problem. Family room is large - no bath for young children but you can make do for one night. Clean, and tv in both rooms. Haven't heard any traffic noise so... More
