So happy I chose to stay at the Central Gateway Motel at close proximity to the Heritage precinct with a couple of cafes and restaurants and a supermarket close by. I had a very peaceful stay and I had a very spacious room with all the amenities I needed. My room was in the main building on the second floor overlooking the mountains (from my bed!). I was taking a bus from Cromwell and received a very kind offer from the host to drop me at the bus stop (~3km away) as she was going to run some errands in the town. Really appreciated this - especially as it started raining the moment we stepped into her car. Would have loved to stay longer - next time then!

The Central Gateway Motel is a superb place to stay. Whether it's one night or a week you will not be disappointed. The hosts are so friendly and helpful. The motel is clean, warm, comfortable and feels like home from home. It's in a superb location, close to the historic area and not too far from local shops and restaurants. Highly recommended

Friendly checkin with no hassles. Quiet small unit with everything we needed for one night and could make our breakfast with the toaster etc. Not much else to say except we were happy with the night and had a good following day.

We were lucky enough to get accommodation in the detached Cabana accommodation which was more than adequate for our needs. Spacious bedroom with kitchen, good shower and plenty of hot water and towels. Clean and tidy. Outside area to sit in. Very friendly and informative staff.
