Fabulous motel. We had unit 5 which is very spacious and comfortable with a large king-size bed giving us a great night sleep. The kitchen is well appointed and the bathroom has a good shower etc. The proprietor's are very friendly and welcoming and allowed us to bring our wee dog which is appreciated. Cromwell is a nice quiet town... More

What a fantastic motel! Wonderful managers who made you feel so welcome and couldn't do enough for you. Studio twin was fantastic, nice and roomy and very clean with nice fresh linen. Nicely decorated too, made you feel very safe and cosy! Nice short walk to Old Cromwell Town and the old Victoria pub. Would definitely stay there again and... More

We had the Cabana unit, nice enough (although a bit dated), clean, private, pretty basic but for the price we weren't expecting anything too fancy. Hosts we very nice and friendly. Handy for Cromwell old town (although it was closed at 3.50pm on a holiday weekend)

Fantastic motel, it was warm and comfortable, very quiet with full kitchen facilities. The bed was soft and we slept so well. The owner was very friendly and helpful and they has lots of lovely extras, like good plunger coffee. huge bathroom. Good wifi. We would stay here again I give it top marks.

We chose Central Gateway for our one night stay in Cromwell due to the good reviews from trips advisor . It's really live up to our expectation. Small cosy with big toilet and full equip kitchen where we did some basic cooking. It may be a little far to walk to town centre of Cromwell, but it is short walking... More

Stayed here in mid May for 2 nights while exploring the surrounding area. The unit was clean and tidy with a good kitchen. Always a bonus if you don't want to dine out for every meal. The owners were extremely helpful and made sure we were aware of what there was to see in Cromwell and surrounds. We would definitely... More

We stayed in an upstairs Studio (2 Adults & Infant). Was a huge room with nice furniture. Nice place to stay at. Had heat pump which was very handy. Kitchen & bathroom where separate from bedroom/lounge which was very handy with a crawling infant!
