We arrived to our hotel tired from the long trip from NJ, USA. The reception staff were very welcoming and friendly and worked to ready our room earlier than promised. We got some good advice about local attractions and dining, all with a friendly New Zealand smile. Both Kent and his assistant Priscilla made us feel right at home. Our... More

We arrived late 9ish pm on 21st Jan as there were so much to see on the way to Picton. It was Day14 out of our 16 days self-drive around the island. We also brought a lot of fresh produce with us from Nelson and planning to cook in our kitchen in the motel. At the time of check in... More

Good spacious and clean rooms. Great location, central to everywhere. The most accommodating of hosts. Kent, the owner, even helped us with our luggage and even gave us a free lift to the ferry. Easy check in and very friendly. Good people. I would definitely recommend this place as very good value for money. James Dewar

Hospitality and generosity typified my experience of in New Zealand. Absolutely incredible service that reflects a genuine pride for the region. When I lost my parents in the Marlborough Sound, the lovely lady at reception poured me a glass of local wine and called every hotel to help me locate my parents. When we couldn't find them, I was invited... More

The room we occupied had everything one needed for a nights stay, but the room had a nasty odour, which I think could only be coming from the carpet, sweaty feet come to mind, which is why the door was open when we arrived. Would really Benefit from a tiled floor throughout, until then give it a miss, unless you... More

Glad to find a bed the night before taking the ferry over to Wellington. Basic motel, clean, friendly, nice communal open area with bbqs and picnic tables.Parking stalls outside units. Easy to find on Picton's main street. Close to shops and Picton attractions. Really worth visiting the Edwin Fox Maritime Museum.

Me, my partner and our baby son stayed here for a week and found this motel one of the best places we have stayed in. The room was very clean and has everything in there that you need. The staff made us feel very welcome and you can have a good laugh with the owner. This place is very family... More

Was able to get a last minute room on New Year's eve after a cancellation. Our hosts could not have been more helpful in fixing us up at the last minute. The room was very clean and appropriately facilitated and the bed was excellent. The shower was really great with plenty of pressure! Have to rate the Gateway as a... More

This motel has been the best stop for is so far. The owners were friendly, helpful and informative about local attractions. The room was clean, beautifully presented and it opened on to a well kept communal area. Parking was good also. This little jem is located right in the centre of town and close to walkways and restaurants. We ate... More

We arrived very late after coming over on the ferry from Wellington. I'd rung up earlier in the day to say that I would be late and the girl said the details would be on the door to show which room we'd be in and the door would be open/ light on. I'd assumed they'd meant the room door and... More
