“Great place to say with friendly staff good knowledge of the surrounding area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2013

I enjoyed my 8 weeks in Picton at the Gateway Motel. I was made to feel like it was my home away from home. It had nice clean rooms and they are well serviced.
It is in a good location. The cafe there had a top breakfast menu and I got great packed lunches.
Would Highly Recommend to all.

Due to an airline delay, we were not able to arrive until 1 a.m. in Picton, Kent and Marie very kindly organised a late night shuttle to transfer us from Nelson airport, changed our rooms (at their cost) to help us out, picked our kids up from the ferry, sorted huge delicious lunches for our trek on the first day on the Queen Charlotte Track. and were charming and helpful.
The two bedroom motel room was comfortable and clean, We were only there for about 6 hours as we headed out to the track at 7.30 a.m. Again, Kent very kindly transported our bags to the wharf.
On our return we stayed in a two bedroom deluxe family unit, which had a waterfront view; this was a perfect spot to rest our aching muscles after the tramp.
If there was a button higher than 5 star, I'd click it!

We chose this place after reading all the great reviews on Trip Advisor and we were not disappointed! We received a wonderful warm & friendly welcome from the owners who took time to give us all the information we needed to make the most out of our short stay in Picton. The motel is excellently located and rooms are well appointed and comfortable (and spotlessly clean). I shall definitely choose this place again when I return. Thanks Kent and Marie!

I have enjoyed my to months living here. Friendly staff always happy to help nothing is a problem. Good location. Clean and tidy room. Made being away from home easier. The on site information deck was a good help in sorting a days fishing for us drivers. I can't thank the team enough here at the gateway.

Comfortable accommodation in a very central position, easy walk to the ferry and rail station. The motel serves a great breakfast and is just 40 m from a great place for an evening meal.
Most of all We were impressed by the level of service and helpfulness from every member of staff.

Our hosts went out of their way to make our stay a pleasant one. They recommended great restaurants etc. Our rooms were serviced everyday. We would recommend that you take advantage of the breakfast restaurant. Something for eveyone! Ps: they hire out scooters too, which we thoroughly enjoyed as well!
