We had a very large room, with a shower and a spa. well equiped and very comfortable beds. Considering it is on the highway, it was very quiet. These people donated the rooms to us for a charity walk and were very helpful and pleasant.

Motel situated on the way in to warnambool opposite harvey norman, good position. Very clean rooms and exceptional service by the owners. I looked it up on the net, went there expecting a queen bed in a standard room. I was given two double beds in a large room for my daughter and myself including a free spa, at no... More

Ask for Brendan at the Gateway. Local knowledge will ensure you know everything you need to know about Warrnambool. Genuine bloke, very friendly and helpful. Ask to stay in one of the newly refurbished rooms as the bed is very comfortable. I'll be going back there. Breakfast room is large and easy to use and the cost is very fair.... More

Lovely clean and comfortable room, free continental breakfast, free WiFi and very friendly hosts, who gave us a voucher for a 20% discount at the Flying Horse restaurant just down the road. Would definitely recommend staying here!

This place was our final destination on our Great Ocean Road trip! We had spent all day driving from Melbourne and making stopovers along the way, keeping in mind that their latest check-in time was 8:00pm. During the late afternoon I had received a courtesy call from Josh (I'm sure that was this name), asking on how we were going... More

We stayed here overnight on our way to Great Ocean road trip and when we arrived Nicky had already turned the air con on in our room and put a bottle of water in the fridge for us. Nicky was fantastic and couldn't have been any more helpful or courteous. Nicky then recommended us to go to the Flying Horse... More

The room was clean and comfortable. The service, especially from Joel was outstanding. He couldn't do enough for us, recommending somewhere to eat and giving us directions to local sightseeing attractions. He was very cheerful and friendly. More hotels/motels need someone like him.

We booked the Gateway Motor Inn Warrnambool because there was nothing left in the middle between Melbourne and Adelaide. We paid $159 per room per night, which is certainly the inflated holiday season rate. Upsetting, however, was that some rooms have been refurbished to a modern standard, while other rooms still sporting the original 70s style salmon colored bathroom facilities,... More
