Lovely room, spacious and clean. Welcoming staff who quickly sorted the issue with wanting two beds! Great find. The entrance area is lovely. Staff were really helpful and even provided fresh milk. Will revisit if in the area.

Travelling from Wellington by car and it was getting really late, pouring with rain, tired I saw the Gateway Boutique Hotel. Drove in, when to the door, it was locked, and it looked like the office was closed. I decided to ring the bell. A gentleman finally came out to greet me. What a relief to see someone and to...

From the outside you don't expect the lovely level of quality once you walk in the door. The only thing missing was a buzzing of activity of customers... Sanjay and his wife's level of customer service take this place from "just a reasonable country place" to something beyond the usual expexctation that i would definitely come back for. The welcome...

We are a young couple visiting North Island,NZ for few days. Our First night stay was in this lovely hotel which we really cherished. The friendly receptionist gave us a very warm welcome and he was very kind to provide a new microwave although our booked room hasn't had one. The room was very comfy & well furnished. Bathroom maintenance... More

We stayed here two nights ago as we could not get into the Solway - well now we will never go back to Solway as this was so much better! The friendly staff were more than happy to help out with anything and the rooms were lovely. Everything was spotless. We got to choose our checkout time even so we... More

My son and I stayed here a couple of weeks ago for a wedding nearby - the rooms are beautiful, bathrooms with high quality fittings, and a little kitchenette, immaculately presented and fabulous service. Nothing is too much trouble, from late hearty breakfast, to giving us a space to get changed in before our room was ready. Highly recommended -... More

The team here seem to really care about doing a great job. Everything is immaculately clean, and the fit out was to a much higher standard than the norm. Was a pleasant surprise in rural NZ! Recommended.

Also had a nice deck outside. would definitely stay again. The only downside is that it was right on the city limit - though that could be seen as... More

It was a real pleasure staying here. Beautiful rooms like a city hotel with the bonus of cooking facilities. Quiet and close to town. Definitely will return. Staff were very helpful. I would recommend this to families, solo or business travellers as a great option.
