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.

The Gateway Motor Inn is a great conference venue. The Gateway's Manager Faisal and his small team of staff are exceptional hosts. Faisal is the consummate "multi-tasker" always professional, polite, helpful and sincere in his approach to clients and to his role as Manager/facilitator of great happenings. I am one of a group of 4 health professionals who organised 2... More

My wife and I stayed here for just one night on our way to Wellington. We were given a great welcome by the manager Faisal who helped us with our luggage and showed us to our room which was very big with a private patio leading on to a very pleasant varden. The room was spotless with a lovely big... More

We recently had our wedding at the Gateway Motor Inn and I cannot speak highly enough of all aspects of the lead up to the day and the day itself. A massive thank you must go to Faisal and his staff for everything they did for us. They were polite and nothing was an issue. Faisal made sure everything was... More

The Gateway Motor Inn was a lovely place to stay while we had a mini family holiday in the Wairarapa with our 18 month old. The staff were really friendly and helpful. The room we stayed in was clean and stylish.

We had our wedding at the gateway, and I could not be happier with how everything went. The accommodation was wonderful, the manager made sure we felt welcome. Everyone was very helpful and welcoming. We had help to set up our wedding venue, and they cleaned up after us, so no cleaning up to do the following day. Overall Excellent... More
