What a comfortable motel to find... clean, tidy, enough room and nice comfy bed. We managed to get a unit on the flat - friends stayed upstairs. Lovely view of the Cromwell hills and close to where we wanted to be for dinner. A really nice stop for the night.

Would highly reccomend Central Gateway Motel. Stayed for 2 nights. Check in was easy and hassle free. Room was spotless. Hosts very friendly. Ordered a continental breakfast for Saturday morning and it was just what we needed. A very short walk to the Town and Countyclub. Had a downstairs unit and it was very comfortable and quiet. We would definitely choose to stay here again when we head down south.

Thank you for your review - we appreciate you taking the time to comment. We love hearing that you enjoyed our motel and the surrounding area. We are so lucky to be in such a good part of town - near the Heritage Precinct with its lovely little shops and great cafes, and just a stone's throw from Lake Dunstan and the new bike trail. Thanks again :o)

So happy I chose to stay at the Central Gateway Motel at close proximity to the Heritage precinct with a couple of cafes and restaurants and a supermarket close by. I had a very peaceful stay and I had a very spacious room with all the amenities I needed. My room was in the main building on the second floor overlooking the mountains (from my bed!). I was taking a bus from Cromwell and received a very kind offer from the host to drop me at the bus stop (~3km away) as she was going to run some errands in the town. Really appreciated this - especially as it started raining the moment we stepped into her car. Would have loved to stay longer - next time then!

The Central Gateway Motel is a superb place to stay. Whether it's one night or a week you will not be disappointed. The hosts are so friendly and helpful. The motel is clean, warm, comfortable and feels like home from home. It's in a superb location, close to the historic area and not too far from local shops and restaurants. Highly recommended

Friendly checkin with no hassles. Quiet small unit with everything we needed for one night and could make our breakfast with the toaster etc. Not much else to say except we were happy with the night and had a good following day.
