Heritage Gateway Hotel
Ranked #3 of 4 Hotels in Omarama
Reviewed July 4, 2013

Omerama is a beautiful town and the hotel was a little old but well finished and perfectly adequate for a one night stay. There were huge double glass doors with a very pleasant view to the mountains. The dinner was served by way of an extensive buffet which was good, well pprepared, well served and lots of choice. we enjoyed it.

Arrived on a Friday afternoon. Greeted by a friendly receptionist.We were offered a price for a bed only, or for bed and breakfast. We chose bed and breakfast. We went upstairs to our room and were pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness and size of the room. There was a ranch slider to allow you to take in the view and sunshine, although we were there in the middle of winter.

Excellent size bathroom with room to swing the cat, if you brought it with you.

The TV was a tad small for the size of the room, is my only complaint.

On Saturday morning we walked over to the restaurant for the full breakfast, which was very well cooked and well presented.

Their apple juice was soooo good.

Room Tip: If you cant manage stairs then request a downstairs room

A nice convenient one night stop over in what looks a bit of an oasis after a long days travelling. The rooms are comfortable enough but the TV is a bit on the small side. The only disappointment we had was after being lured into the motel by the "Full Breakfast Sign" out the front that we were advised that if we ate in the restaurant that night, we would have to pick up our breakfast for the next morning which was cereal and juice (not my idea of FULL breakfast) as there were no staff in the next day to organise brekky. Needless to say we had a hot breakfast at Twizle the next day even though we felt we had already for it at Heritage.

Room Tip: All rooms seem to be of the same quality

Fantastic venue. Rare establishment. Great management. Value for money. Environment friendly. Nice common area. Yummy breakfast menu. Decent bed, tv and clean bathroom. The room we got had a large living area, with a big private balcony with mountains and sunset view.

Room Tip: Rooms with roadside balcony got nice sunset view over mountains!!

This hotel was fine for one night, and the garden was very pleasant for relaxing in. My room was good, except that there were no net curtains, so it was a bit like being in a goldfish bowl, but fortunately the management recompensed me in the usual way.
I din't have the buffet meal, but I understand from other members of my group that it was only just about acceptable. The bar snacks were reported to be better.

Stayed: February 2013, traveled with friends

Large clean and tidy premises. Great cheap wireless internet but ridiculously small tv. Unable to be watched from bed as also has a volume control of 50 out of 100. Had room near road but not too much issue with noise. This hotel is clearly a stop for truckers though so morning was a little nosier. Not a big problem as when working I am an early riser anyway. Restaurant good and flexible with great bartender.

Room Tip: Away from the road if you like to sleep in.
