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!

I recently stayed at this motel. The service was outstanding. The owners went out of their way to accomodate my needs and even left a delightful message on my phone advising me of their plans so I wouldn't be inconvenienced. The motel unit was very clean and tidy. Many thanks and highly recommended.

We spent 4 nights at Central Gateway Motel and were very happy with our choice. Rooms are very spacious, clean and the bed was very comfortable. The kitchen was not part of the main bedroom, but was a separate room which was great. The room was more like an apartment than a motel room. The bathroom was very big as... More

Very nice motel where we slept well. Clean and tidy. Real homely accommodation. The host was very polite and helpful. Close to Old Cromwell Town. Not far from the main town and very quiet. Can purchase breakfast and we received a complimentary newspaper. Stay here if possible.

On our recent tour of South island decided we would stay away from the hustle of Queenstown and decided on Central Gateway,Cromwell. It was a good choice, our large en-suite studio unit was clean and had a comfortable king size bed. The kitchen area was well equipped. The motel is only a short from the lakeside and Old Cromwell Town... More
