Better than expected

We dined here as part of a group experience with a set menu for a private function.

I cannot agree with the other review as our experience at the gates restaurant within the Southgate motel was excellent in both food and service. Breakfast was also well presented and the food was delightful A perfect start to the day 5 out of 5 from us!
