Got there late at night. 1st thing I noticed was that is was next door to a petrol station and opposite a supermarket. Delivery trucks and such coming and going all day.

Yes I could see the beach 200 metres away but the street was a busy highway with all the traffic going to the main town of Keri keri right outside - roads were busy from 0700 to 2300.

I stayed only a night or two then moed on.
Sherrin & kevin were nice hosts but if \I had the time to research things I would never have stayed in such a location.

Thank for your reveiw, We are only 50mtrs from Ti Beach, and 200 mtrs from the only supermarket . The the whole of Paihia is a very noisey busy happening place, We are very sorry
about that .Im glad that we have a vacant site next to us, and not a backpackers or Bar.

Regard

Kevin

The rooms are just as they show on the website, well done and each room is tastefully
decorated.The rooms are self sufficient with a kitchen etc. The size of the rooms is huge with a green backyard. The motel is not close to any city centre etc but conveniently located in-between Paihia and Keri Keri.
Ask for any help at the reception and trust me you wont regret their advice, they know the best restaurants and nice walking trails.
Don't miss on the home made scones they are yumm.

Room Tip: All their rooms are nice and complete value for money.

We had a fantastic 2 night stay ar the Gateway Motel in the Bay of Islands. The room was perfect, a large size, clean and quite. Sherrin and Kevin were wonderful hosts and helped us to book our trip for our holiday, they were very helpful and we could not have arrange it and had such a wonderful time without them. Highly recommend this motel for anyone travelling to the bay :)

We had an 11 day stay in a 1-BR suite which was roomy, well provisioned and had a homelike ambiance. The bathroom was large and the shower excellent. Spotlessly clean and for golfers, it is closely situated to a good course with only a brief walk to the beach. Sherrin and Kevin were very helpful and accommodating and the Gateway was one of the highlights in our complete tour of the North Island. Excellent value.

Room Tip: Our 1-BR suite was on the second floor and it was a good location.

We were offered an upgrade to a 2-BR suite during our week-long stay in March 2012. The view was nearly as nice as the place around the corner (which charges 3x as much), and everything else was excellent. Very close to the beach, backs onto lovely bush, 2-minute walk from large grocery store, very comfortable bed, modern bathroom, well-equipped kitchenette, large rooms with lots of space for everything. Our hosts were very pleasant, generous and accommodating. Close to Waitangi and close but not too close to the pier. Hosts very knowledgeable about local attractions and events.
