our room was large and one bedroom was closed off since there was only 2 of us , but a huge area , king bed that I did not want to leave and a wonderful peaceful area. it was a bit over our budget but well worth the rest and great room!!!

I have stayed at the Central Gateway on and off over the last 5 years, depending on the weather in Central Otago - black ice on roads/snow etc. but everytime I come here it is always a relief to arrive.
