The description boutique hotel is over used. This hotel is very dark inside and a little gloomy. Rooms are named after Melbourne cup winners. Not sure why. Staff lack any real empathy for their guests and it is rather an awkward situation. Rooms are comfortable but no air conditioning in the Masterton heat.

Great place that was quiet and easy to find.Bed was big and comfy. Freeview Tv worked well and the bathroom was spacious. We only stayed one night and turned up late and were welcomed in! Great place to stay while passing through town.

Very nice decor, friendly and efficient staff. But no Sky TV. Didn't think to check before booking and missed out on live coverage of the All Blacks game. My fault but most properties in this price range should have it. If that doesnt worry you, I recommend the place

Comfortable beds are the number one thing I look for in accommodations, and Gateway Motor Inn hit the comfortable bed criterion! Nice decor and seating area and bathroom with good shower. The fridge and microwave in the room was never used, but great to have the option. Friendly, honest, polite staff. The youngest managed to leave my ipad under the...

Quiet place, great sleep, spacious rooms, easy parking and pleasant staff. A last minute cancellation gave me an opportunity to stay at a negotiated rate which worked out well for both parties. The staff and owner were helpful and pleasant in all respects.

When we arrived the dark exterior didn't seem to be particularly inviting - don't be fooled. We were given a friendly welcome and courteous service when checking in and being shown to our room. The room was spacious, well furnished and equipped. Added advantage for our room was an outside patio with easy access to the car for bringing in...
