August and the only resident I think.. Bed is comfortable. Would not have stayed here ..had I known there was no Sky TV with the Olympics on.......😢 I'm sure the summer is buzzing. It definitely needs something..

Comfortable beds are the number one thing I look for in accommodations, and Gateway Motor Inn hit the comfortable bed criterion! Nice decor and seating area and bathroom with good shower. The fridge and microwave in the room was never used, but great to have the option. Friendly, honest, polite staff. The youngest managed to leave my ipad under the... More

The room had a fridge, microwave oven, cutlery, crockery, etc. The staff was very polite and helpful. The GateWay Motor Inn has plenty of free car parking immediately in front... More

Quiet place, great sleep, spacious rooms, easy parking and pleasant staff. A last minute cancellation gave me an opportunity to stay at a negotiated rate which worked out well for both parties. The staff and owner were helpful and pleasant in all respects.

When we arrived the dark exterior didn't seem to be particularly inviting - don't be fooled. We were given a friendly welcome and courteous service when checking in and being shown to our room. The room was spacious, well furnished and equipped. Added advantage for our room was an outside patio with easy access to the car for bringing in... More

I stayed with my 2 daughters. The rooms were very big with quality fittings, a fantastic bathroom with spa bath, huge living room with large flat-screen TV, ceramic cooktop, dishwasher, excellent WIFI (3 of us streamed movies simultaneously with no issues) and a separate master bedroom with doors which opened to our own outside table and chairs. All spotlessly clean.... More
