We stayed in this hotel for one night whilst we were in Masterton. Our room was large, modern, and comfortable with a king sized bed on which we slept very well. There was also a seating area with a comfortable couch. The room had a very modern bathroom with a walk in shower, which was lovely to use. We also... More

We had a very comfortable room which was quiet, spotlessly clean and suited our needs well. On the downside, while the kitchen space was adequate, a bit more room wouldn't have gone amiss, as would some more shelf space in the bathrooom. A contintental breakfast in our room was nicely served with plenty of variety. Sanjay, the Manager, and his... More

Gave us options on rooms to ensure we got the best available - then ensured we had everything we required to make the stay relaxing. Room was spacious, beds comfy and hot powerful shower was... More

Great place to stay. Did not look as appealing on the outside as in pictures that we had seen but once we were taken to our room, it was lovely. The facilities are very tidy and the rooms are warm and comfortable. Would definitely stay again and would recommend to anyone.

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
