We stayed here 1 night. This was a lovely motel which was located walking distance to the township and peninsula walkway/seal colony. The office manager was very nice and accommodating. The 3 rooms we booked were excellent, very clean and tidy. Facilities were good. Nothing much to complain here. Wifi was excellent. Would definitely stay here on another trip in Kaikoura.

The room was comfortable but it niggles that we and others we met were expecting a pool to use and sit around in the sun. Water was clean but freezing, maybe cover not used and it was off the carpark and no loungers or chairs. A pick up option from the train would be good as several train passengers had to pay a lot for a shuttle for 2 minute drive. Pretty pricey really for this place. Busy Owner operators may need more staff to help rather than shutting office during the day?

We chose this motel because it has air conditioning and is located close to town. We got a very friendly welcome from the staff and our room had everything we needed. Our room faced the road but the road noise was ok at night. Great choice if you want to park your vehicle and walk into town. Disliked · The room could have been cleaner. There was thick dust on the bathroom blind and hair in the bath. The room cost more than we would normally pay but these are not normal times.

The location is within walking distance of the main shopping and restaurant area, but not the "0.6m" of the Ohau Point seal colony as suggested on this site (it's more like 16miles) The unit was good, with a large bathroom and comfortable bed. Since returning home, I realise that I wasn't given the $5 discount as promised. Not a big deal, but sometimes details count.

My husband, myself and one of my sons stayed at the gateway motor lodge for a much needed relaxing weekend it was a lovely place to stay, so quiet which is what we wanted. The proprietors were friendly and helpful. It was nice and clean. We all enjoyed our stay.
