I had an impromptu trip to Warrnambool for the weekend. I booked on the Thursday (headed up Friday). They were great over the phone whilst booking.
When I turned up on the Friday Brendon was friendly and approachable. He explained that he would be in and out the next day, and that evening also left a note under the door, so I wouldn't forget.

The room was very nice and had everything a person would need. There was lot's of room and the bed was comfortable.

I found all the staff friendly and I would most defiantly come back when I am next in Warrnambool. I also recommend it to everyone.
Thanks for a great place to stay and a nice atmosphere.

Though I live in the district my booking was necessary thanks to my partner needing an overnight hospital stay, and the weather being too inclement for safe travel to and from home. Brendan was very understanding and helpful .. the room (though a typical older style 'motel' room) was quiet, spacious, clean and more than adequate. The hot water was reliable and the bed just soooo comfortable (with an electric blanket!!)
I am only too happy and willing to recommend the 'Gateway' to all and would not hesitate to use it again..

Room Tip: All rooms are quiet due to office and restaurant across the front, but in peak season, with more roa...

Our stay was for 4 nights and during the week so it was very quite. The rooms we had are basic, clean and plenty of room inside.
The shower water was nice and hot and plenty off. The bed was comfortable. Breakfast was part of the deal and plenty of cereal, hot coffee and fruit.
Out doors has plenty of space for kids to run around. Recommend to all.

The rooms were clean and spacious. We (two of us) just needed a place to sleep after a long day of driving from Adelaide. The room was clean and the satellite tv helped us fully veg out and relax. The spa bath was a welcome addition for us to soak and relax. Wifi was provided so that was a nice touch. Rooms are a bit dated in decor but hey, it's a motel, not a Ritz-Carlton. It suited out needs which were a clean bed to sleep in and a shower for the evening. Would recommend again although it was a bit expensive for what it was.

My partner and I stayed in the Gateway Motor Inn, Warnambool in preparation for our great ocean road trip. It was in a great location with close access to the town centre, the great ocean road and shopping centers.
The room was spacious and presented to the best standards, the bathroom was clean and the spa was one of my highlights. The room had an excellent sleeping area with the best mattress topper anyone could ask for! Their range of foxtel tv made for a comfortable and relaxing night in. The breakfast that we received via room service was delicious.
The manager Brendan was very knowledgeable for the surrounding area and was extremely accommodating and friendly with the best old fashioned service I have seen in a long time.
We have stayed in many hotels/motels but this was by far the best service we have ever received. We would love to have stayed longer than one night but were grateful for a wonderful stop over.
Overall I would rate this accommodation very highly and would have no hesitations in recommending and re booking this accommodation!
Thanks for a great stay!
