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. With the new owners, things have not changed. The welcome is warm and friendly and I am pleased to say... More

You are unlikely to find a friendlier welcome than at the Gateway! Every time we spoke we got friendly attention and recommendations. The Hotel is on the older style, but the rooms are quite large with separate basic kitchen, bathroom etc. Huge king size beds were very comfortable and the room was very clean. Very little outside noise to disturb... More

We were exhausted when we arrived after the 5 hour drive from Christchurch and we were welcomed with a smile by the new lovely owners. We were given great suggestions of what takeaway was good in the local area. The room was very large (as was... More

My husband chose this motel for us to stay at, I actually found it nicer than some of the more expensive hotels we have stayed at. It's nothing overly fancy but it doesn't cost much and it has everything you could want. I'd definitely stay here again.
