This was a great place to stay, accommodating and friendly hosts. We were able to check in early, to an upstairs unit which was very roomy, clean and had a comfortable bed. Close to the shopping centre.

Stayed here for work recently, and was very satisfied. The owners were really nice, and I thought the place had a good feel to it. I've stayed in a lot of motels for work, and this is one of the best I've stayed at. Unlimited wifi is pretty handy too!

Good location with a short walk to supermarkets and food outlets. Hosts are acommodating and freindly. Good parking onsite and more parking on the main road a short distance away. Main road parking suitable for heavy vehicles or if you have a large trailer.

During the week before, we had had some horrible days, so, we needed to get away. We were not too sure what we were going to do but, decided to stay in Waikanae. We lucked it and found Kapiti Gateway Motel. Upon arrival, our room was getting "Dressed" for us and the lady in the office was Lovely and extremely helpful. Her husband came into the office a few minutes later and gave us the go-ahead to enter ad take control of out room. The children (12yog, 10yog & 6yob) had never been in a motel before and were amazed. 6yob continued to play on the Trampoline and monkey swings keeping himself occupied nicely. The 2 girls, were just happy to have consistent and reliable internet connection. Breakfast was nice also, and instead of charging breakfast for 5 of us, the Lovely Lady suggested that we only get 4 breakfasts as they are a good size and our 6yob could have a shared breeky. Great idea and a big thank you for not just trying to make a profit. The girls have suggested that we stay again, but for a longer duration, I think that will be a great plan.
