My partner and I came into Picton on a late afternoon ferry. We found our motel easily. The room had been pre-heated for us which was lovely as it was very cold! The room looked nice. The shower had great pressure. A bathroom fan would be useful or maybe an extra mirror in other room to assist with getting ready.... More

The rooms were clean and neat and the kitchenette well equipped. Kent was very welcoming and friendly. He and his wife are locals and know the area well so were... More

Enjoyed my short overnight stay here! The owners were nothing but brilliant and would do anything to go above and beyond! Rooms were warm and tidy and homely! The landscaping-lawns, gardens were almost perfect! Could not fault this motel! Would defiantly go back there for personal and business use again.

We took the ferry over from Wellington and stayed the night at the Gateway Motel. Staff in the office were very helpful with local knowledge. It's located in the center of town close to the i-site and popular resteraunts. The room was very clean, warm, and the bed was very comfortable.
