My wife and I stayed at the Kapiti Gateway Motel, Waikanae, for 11 nights recently whilst visiting our daughter. We had contacted Vivian and Russell from the UK informing them of our plans and enquiring about accommodation availability. We booked a Double Studio however our hosts upgraded us to the Superior Studio with no extra costs. The rooms were very clean and as stated by others the beds are very comfortable. Although the motel is located near a main road and train station, we found the noise very minimal and we always enjoyed a good nights sleep. We used the pool often to cool off, it was well maintained and clean. There is also a children's play area with a trampoline etc which our grandchildren enjoyed playing on. We decided to visit Napier on our way back to Auckland Airport and Russell recommended a nice motel in Napier which he booked for us (as the Napier motel was in the same chain it only cost us $50 for the night). Vivian and Russell were superb hosts and we shall have no hesitation in booking another stay at the Kapiti Gateway Motel on our next visit to NZ.
