Hotel suite was very roomy and well appointed. Bed was very comfortable. Duty manager was extremely helpful and polite. Other staff member was also very polite. Just ensure you specify room service or restaurant and a time for breakfast in the morning - we forgot the time which left the staff wondering...and then had to ring us at 730am

The place did not look much from the carpark, and initially it looked very cold and uninviting in the reception area, but when you open your eyes and look around this is truly a great place. We stayed only the one night but I cannot say enough good things about this hotel. Let me start with the on-site manager -... More

clean and tidy spacious room, helpful staff, some things like not enough room in bathroom to put shaving kit on and small kitchen was annoying but cheap enough to compensate. Quiet and peaceful place, good if needing a place after a long drive.

The hotel is really comfortable with ample rooms. Cleanliness and courtesy are the most distinctive features of this well managed inn. We enjoyed a few days at the Gateway motor inn and we happily returned to this accomodation after we left for a three day visit in Napier. Definitely recommended if you plan to be in Masterton for a few... More

I arrived late at night and called up as reception had closed. I had not pre booked. They came down and opened reception and nothing was a hassle. Room was nice and modern and was very quiet. Staff were very polite and helpful during checkout.

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.

We were a little vary about staying at a motor inn, but the whole family was pleasantly surprised at how clean and accommodating this place was. The manager Faisal was just awesome, he was always there to help and looked after us really well. Definitely the best service we have had in any Motel in NZ so far. The room... More

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
