I strongly concur with the favorable comments of those before us. Our family toured the South Island, staying in a number of motels and we would rate the Gateway as one of the best. Chris and Kerri are extremely accommodating and down to earth people to deal with. You couldn't wish for a more central location, within walking distance to all of the local attractions. Our unit was very affordable, lovely and clean, spacious, with great water pressure in the shower! We loved the tranquility of Picton and we will return to this motel. On an earlier trip we stayed in a deluxe apartment and were extremely disappointed. It was on this trip that we met Chris and Kerri, who showed us around their motel. It goes to show that expensive doesn't always mean the best!

Room Tip: We chose a suite with a kitchen at a very slight increase in price. Everything was supplied and we wanted for nothing.

We had the most fantastic experience at Gateway. I have never come across such a helpful motelier ever. The service was unbelievable.
We were given a car to get our necessary groceries for the weekend and then transferred to the boat, as well as being picked up from the ferry, a service that made out trip and experience seamless! Thank you very much Gateway!!

This was our first time staying at The Gateway Motel.
Our first impression of the hotel was that the staff works incredibly hard to make guests feel welcomed . They were attentive and helpful. The room was comfortable and super clean.

The motel is near the ferry terminal. You can even walk to it.
We've had a nice view of the mountains that circle Picton.

I highly recommend this place with no doubt. A+++++

What a place. errie and Chris could not have done more for me and my elderly dad. The week before I had stayed with a friend and it was just as good. I will you to stay in this clean and warm motel environment.
A great stay and 30 seconds to the main street.

Chris and Kerri, New hosts are delightful (new owners, not managers) SO ALL is wonderful in this central location in Picton close to ferry!!!, we had stayed many times as Americana, central back then BUT below average (we do tours and new owners are 100 per cent improvement)
TOP Beds... voted by all our tour people... and great food next door at White Elephant...WE will be back.. great place, value for money and great hospitality for sure! Meet and Greet was much appreciated with a free local newspaper...
We need to sign in as business and friends as our Travel Club is both :)

Room Tip: Pick a room, any room... Very central, great location AND very comfortable for sure...
