I arrived on a freezing cold evening after a busy day, to a warm welcome and an even warmer room as the heating in the room had been put on prior to my arrival. Such thoughtfulness. The room was quiet, clean, comfortable and had everything needed. The adjacent restaurant served perfect fish and chips to the room. All in all,... More

The motel room was large with access from the car park at the front and also out the back onto a patio area overlooking the pool and gardens. Native birdlife was a joy to watch and listen to. The location is out of town so is nice and quiet. The downside was to arrive on a Friday after a long... More

We stayed here for one night recently, and found it to be very good. It was clean and very spacious. The new owners were keen to make a good impression, being very helpful and friendly.

Staff were delightful - from the new owners through to the cleaners! Lots of smiles and hello - even though they were very busy! The units were clean, fresh and had the basic necessities. The deodoriser used to freshen up the rooms was great - a lovely smell without being overpowering. Our unit was on the western side of the... More

The new owners are friendly and accomodating. The rooms are a good size and kept clean. The free Internet works well. Even though I chose not to use the pool it looked very inviting. Having Foxtel to watch was great too. I ate at the restaurant that is attached to the motel and the food was quite nice. Overall it... More

A reasonable hotel at best. The manager was friendly upon arrival and the rooms were modern, clean and contained the basics. There was a swimming pool on site. The down side is that the hotel is located on the outskirts of Kadina and was a good walk (2 to 3 km) to the town's major attractions. Complimentary WiFi was not... More

The Gateway is easy to find on the road into Kadina from Adelaide. The grounds are pleasant and tranquil while the staff have a friendly efficiency. The rooms are large with good quality furnishings but the bare brick walls are a turn-off. The attached bistro is a bit slow but the food was good while breakfast was good - even... More
