Had a great time at gateway, the staff went out of their way to make our stay comfortable. They all treated us more like friends than customers. The cooked breakfast on the last morning really capped off a great week. Will recommend Gateway to all our friends and family. Well done to you all David and Terri

We chose to stay at the Gateway Motel in Warrnambool because of the great rates and weren't really expecting much. However we were very pleasantly surprised at the size of the room, the cleanliness and the friendly and helpful staff.... More

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.

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!

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.
