The Kadina Gateway is not going to rock your socks off and have you raving about your delightful room or the magnificent view. What is IS going to do is give you a decent night's sleep in a comfortable and clean room with friendly and helpful staff. Do you really need any more when travelling? It is located on the... More

The motel room was large with access from the car park at the front and also out the back onto a patio area overlooking the pool and gardens. Native birdlife was a joy to watch and listen to. The location is out of town so is nice and quiet. The downside was to arrive on a Friday after a long... More

We stayed here for one night recently, and found it to be very good. It was clean and very spacious. The new owners were keen to make a good impression, being very helpful and friendly. The wifi signal was not too strong inside the room, but having found the router (on the roof of a small building in the centre... More

Staff were delightful - from the new owners through to the cleaners! Lots of smiles and hello - even though they were very busy! The units were clean, fresh and had the basic necessities. The deodoriser used to freshen up the rooms was great - a lovely smell without being overpowering. Our unit was on the western side of the... More

The new owners are friendly and accomodating. The rooms are a good size and kept clean. The free Internet works well. Even though I chose not to use the pool it looked very inviting. Having Foxtel to watch was great too. I ate at the restaurant that is attached to the motel and the food was quite nice. Overall it... More

A reasonable hotel at best. The manager was friendly upon arrival and the rooms were modern, clean and contained the basics. There was a swimming pool on site. The down side is that the hotel is located on the outskirts of Kadina and was a good walk (2 to 3 km) to the town's major attractions. Complimentary WiFi was not... More

The Gateway is easy to find on the road into Kadina from Adelaide. The grounds are pleasant and tranquil while the staff have a friendly efficiency. The rooms are large with good quality furnishings but the bare brick walls are a turn-off. The attached bistro is a bit slow but the food was good while breakfast was good - even... More

A great Hotel for a base for the area or for just an overnight stop. The rooms are clean and spacious. The managers are friendly and helpful. The Restraunt next door is good also though I mainly opted to head to town for a pub meal.

We spent one night here and received a warm, efficient welcome from Lyle. The motel is set back from the main road so noise isn't an issue and there is a lovely garden outside the non-parking end of the unit. The unit itself is very spacious and contained everything we required and was very comfortable. The only downside during our... More

Thank you for your kind words. Unfortunately the carpet was only 1 or 2 days old when you stayed and we didn't realize that the carpet odour was as bad as it was. Please accept our apologies. We are now warning guests about the carpet odour however it does appear to be dissipating quite quickly and shouldn't be noticeable in... More
