Review of Gateway Motel
4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 22 Jul 2023via mobile
Great central location with restaurants, bars, shops & inter island ferry within short walking distance. A good size room that was clean & well set up. Check in was quick & with friendly helpful staff. Car rentals are close by and on site parking is provided. Couldn’t go wrong staying here & great value for money.

Perfect. With a ferry delayed by seven hours and arriving into Picton at 0130 am. this trip could have turned sour. Communication was perfect and made a difficult situation easy. Room is spacious, clean, quiet and heaps of clean white towels. Definitely a good stop in Picton.

It is what it is: a basic, no frills motel situated on the main street of Picton town. Ideal for a 1 night stay if you are catching the ferry to keep the rain off your head The positives are: the bed was comfortable, the sheets clean and crisp. Cutlery and crockery was spotless. Our bathroom in the upstairs Queen room seemed to have recently been rennovated although the shower has an enormous step up to get into it, its quite humerous. If you have limited mobility youd struggle.
The negatives: very few powerpoints, and what ones there are are in weird locations. You have to find one behind the TV just to plug in the kettle. The TV sitting on a bench has a spaghetti of cables which is unsightly (should be mounted on wall with plugs and wires hidden). Wi-Fi is shockingly poor, no good if you have buisness to do.
The bathroom sliding door had no guides at the bottom so the entire door can swing in and out. The lighting in the room is hiddeous; super bright strip lights behind the bed and an ugly glass shade and basic bulb on the ceiling. Decore cheap with ugly artwork and Warehouse curtains. Single glaze windows allows voices from people sitting on the balony in the evenings to be heard clear as day in the rooms, not ideal if you are trying to rest for an early morning ferry crossing. The table and chairs in the room is actually aluminium patio furniture that should be outside.
UHT milk in fridge horrid. Is it worth $175 a night without breakfast? Probably not, but I guess they can charge what they like because ferry passengers often need to overnight in Picton.

Only book this place if no other option in Picton.
Worst experience I’ve had in 15 years of staying in motels/hotels for 6 months a year I’ve had!!
Staff breach privacy on 2 occasions and when questioned was told to F…OFF.
Shame on GateWay Motel.
Book at own peril

Picton was a stopover as I was getting the ferry the next day. Motel was very central and near the ferry terminal and had all the expected facilities. Useful tips on eating places from reception. Quiet room and decent bed.
