Had a great night in this motel and would certainly stay there again. Picton is a lovely town and our room had the best access to the town facilities very clean and spacious and Kent and Marie were very welcoming !!!!!!!

We stayed here over Christmas for 5 nights. The rooms are very spacious and clean. Kent & Marie both show a great love for their business, and put in a lot of effort to make their guests feel at home. In our case, that did not only involve sightseeing and dining tips, but also free beers on Christmas day and even a car! We wanted to go out on Christmas day, but didn't think to book a car ahead of time. All rentals had gone, but on Christmas morning Kent stopped by with a key. What a Christmas surprise that was, thanks a lot!

Travelling as a family of 5 proved a bit difficult with accom bookings but not so with Gateway! I shared emails with Kent and he met our needs perfectly! The hotel upon arrival was extremely friendly, informative and very clean and comfortable! Kent was full of local knowledge and advice on places to dine (with 10% discounts involved) and his suggestions were perfect! Overall a gr8 stay in a very central location....highly recommend!

Room Tip: Although we are a family of 5 we actually had 2 side by side rooms rather than the family room as it...

We spent 3 nights staying in Picton at the Gateway motel with our two young children. We found the room very clean and tidy with good facilities. The property is clearly not new, but it was comfortable. The rooms were serviced daily to a very high standard. The location was absolutely ideal - only 5 mins walk from the ferry terminal, and very close to lots of bars, cafes and a 4-square store. We were very impressed with the service we received, nothing was a problem.

Just found their business card. We actually stayed here 8 months ago but it was very pleasant. The owners were very helpful from putting up a cot (in a pre-warmed room) to making a couple of phone calls on our behalf. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The shower was great, awesome pressure. The motel is in a central location, short trip to the ferries. Would happily stay here again.

We stayed overnight, and thought the room was very clean, comfortable and well appointed. Great location, and great service. A welcome pack in the room would have been useful (where to go, what to see, local cafés and restaurants etc). We'd stay again.
