Excellent linens and a comfortable bed with a huge walk in shower. Very friendly management team who opened the restaurant especially for us and even watched the cricket with us in between all the work stuff that had to be done. Meal rattled up quickly-don't miss the chips-mighty tasty. Heaps of parking and quiet room set well back from the... More

My husband and I, plus children (8 and 4) spent one night at the Gateway, and it was just lovely. Sanjay and his wife were very welcoming and friendly - something you don't often encounter! The room itself was very luxurious and spacious. Bathroom beautiful and the shower had great pressure. The kitchen space was generous and the dish draw... More

Spouse and self stayed here over 4 nights and thoroughly enjoyed this favourably unusual 10 apartment Hotel (not motel). The photo of the street frontage fails to do the place justice as once inside all is quality and comfort. I cannot recall staying at any other place where I have scurried around to find coasters to avoid marking excellent furniture... More

Our first impression on entering the Hotel we found the lack of lighting did not feel very welcoming. We found our room to very pleasant, although a luggage rack in the room would have been helpful, too having to put luggage on of the floor. The overall service was very good and cooked breakfast yummy.

We stayed at this lovely Boutique Motel. The room was spacious, clean and modern. The walk in shower was amazing!! The Manager was very polite, and helpful. However, the Motel was quite dark on the inside. For a Hotel that has History and such an interesting decor, it didn't have that "welcoming feel". There was a bit of history on... More

A group of us came over for the "Wings over Wairarapa" and were lucky enough to stay at this Motel. I can't speak highly enough about the fantastic service provided by the lovely couple managing the complex. They went more than the "extra mile" to look after us and ensure that our stay was memorable. We kept Sanjay working in... More

My wife and I stayed there one night with very good impressions - Quiet location and quiet rooms with a beautiful garden. The rooms are carefully maintained, designed, and prepared for visitors. For us, it looks a nice hotel with the very convenience of a common motel. Excellent! If I have to say something not perfect, maybe waiting for more... More
