“Good Value - Great Service”
Reviewed 9 December 2013

After spending 2 nights at Gateway Motel we wanted to extend our stay but had other commitments.
We enjoyed the free hot mineral pools and the in room spa was clean and powerful.
Location is handy to town and most major attractions also a great takeaway shop opposite the motel.
Overall good value for the price and service was always friendly and helpful when needed.
We would definitely stay at Gateway Motel again.

Stayed November 2013, travelled with family

We enjoyed more than adequate facilities for the reasonable rate we paid for a night's stay. Some fittings looked a little tired and needed sprucing up though. Enjoyed great service and had free wifi Internet!

we spent 2 nights at the gateway motel in rotorua, selena and her staff were fantastic they could not do enough for us, we would recommend this motel to anyone wanting a comfortable room or rooms and at a very very reasonable rate, well done gateway and the lovely serena for making our stay the best .

Room Tip: all rooms face north and although on the main road, we slept well and comfortable with no noice.

We paid to stay for 5 nights but could only handle 4. Room was very tired looking and run down only one of three doors shut properly the shower water took a long time to drain, mouldy shower head and windows very dirty . Really enjoyed our time in rotorua just not returning to motel each night , no cosy feel to it , window next to door made it too easy to open latch on door. No recycling facilities. Beds were comfy and made each day.

Room Tip: If carpark is empty there is a reason

Visited Rotorua for the first time, stayed 2 nights, Selina & Max gave us a big welcome. Only a few minutes walk to town.Room was clean and warm, two mineral pools are brilliant. Free wireless is a big bonus for me.

Room Tip: I stayed in room 2.
