I was very happy with the service at the Gateway nothing was too much trouble from taking my bags to the room and placing them in my car at the end of my stay. The rooms were very clean and the beds were so comfortable best night sleep I had in ages.

Reasonably priced. The bed and room was very comfortable, and the the staff were friendly and helpful. Bedrooms are at the back away from the road so no road noise. Quirky - each room is named after a famous racehorse

Manager Faisal was extremely helpful and went out of his way to make sure any needs were accommodated such as early start breakfasts - and made us feel as though we were staying with friends. The room was spacious, quiet and comfortable with a nice outdoor sitting area. Shower pressure was very good. The free wi-fi was very much appreciated... More

We stayed for 3 nights and from the moment we arrived it was great. Faisal is an amazing Manager, very helpful and knowledgable about places to see and do, nothing is too much trouble. We were upgraded to a very spacious room with our own decked courtyard, very quiet and relaxing. The room was clean and the bed comfortable with... More

My wife and I stayed at the Gateway Motor Inn for one night. Conditions outdoors were wet and cool but our room was most warm, quiet and comfortable. The facilities were clean with good shower pressure and bathroom lighting. Our bed was most comfortable. Car-parking was secure and easily accessible from our room. Staff were welcoming and most helpful from... More

From the very warm welcome that we received from Faisel, the manager to the fond farewell, everything about our four day stay (we stayed two days more than intended!) was perfect. This place is a hidden gem, what a find! Faisal and his team are perfect hosts and we can't thank them enough for their hospitality.

We were driving back to Auckland and decided to stop in Masterton for the night. We weren't expecting much but were very pleasantly surprised by the Gateway - it was very well fitted out with good quality fixtures and fittings and very tastefully done. Very friendly host who wanted us to have a good stay and had thought about what... More

Above and beyond the call of duty. Planning a wedding isn't easy especially planning in a different country. Any questions I had were answered promptly and nothing was a problem. Faisal and his team did all they could to provide us the best of the best and more, I couldn't ask for anything better to make our special day one... More

Do not be put off by initial appearance of this well set up hotel/motel facility. The host Faisal proved particularly professional and helpful and the accommodation is first class and very well presented.
