Fabulous Stay and bike ride is an extra Bonus! Kent is very accommodating and the tour on a bike ride around picturesque Picton is an Extra Bonus!! Kent is very knowledgeable about the location when he gave us tour around this beautiful town on this most coolest bike ever. Would Stay again and Highly Recommend! I live in Sydney and travelling around the picturesque NZ atm and consider myself so lucky as Sydney Australia is a lock down atm. Luckily I am not there. NZ is fabulous to visit at any season. its a picture perfect country!

The Gateway is a super motel. Best location in Picton. Rooms comfortable, ultra clean. No views, but it's only a one minute walk from your door and you are in the center of everything. Thank you Gateway!

Was a wonderful stay close to everything all within walking distance. Staff were lovely with changing our essentials everyday which was a surprising touch. Rooms were clean and tidy and beds comfortable. Only issue was the wifi was near to nothing, think we managed about 5mins of wifi the whole trip but still even didn’t come t to pages till after a minute so had to end up using our personal internet which isn’t ideal. Overall though wonderful trip, staff were quick with helping when needed.

We stayed one night before boarding the Ferry the next day. This motel is situated right in the middle of the main street. Excellent access to shops and cafes. This motel complex is looking a bit tired. Certainly needs an update. Water pressure was terrible, although we were in a room upstairs, so could have had better pressure downstairs.

Stayed one night so we we could be close to the ferry terminal in the morning. Unfortunately the room we had was tired and could do with some R and M . The carpet is in need of a good clean . The room we had had I’ll fitting blinds for Window coverings and given that all courtyard lights remained on all night our room was lit up like a Xmas tree and unfortunately the room was hot and the bed uncomfortable. Having said that the owners were very welcoming and check in was easy plus we were directed to an undercover location to park our motorcycles for the night which was much appreciated With a little more work this could be a great budget motel
