Though I live in the district my booking was necessary thanks to my partner needing an overnight hospital stay, and the weather being too inclement for safe travel to and from home. Brendan was very understanding and helpful .. the room (though a typical older style 'motel' room) was quiet, spacious, clean and more than adequate. The hot water was reliable and the bed just soooo comfortable (with an electric blanket!!)
I am only too happy and willing to recommend the 'Gateway' to all and would not hesitate to use it again..

Our stay was for 4 nights and during the week so it was very quite. The rooms we had are basic, clean and plenty of room inside.
The shower water was nice and hot and plenty off. The bed was comfortable. Breakfast was part of the deal and plenty of cereal, hot coffee and fruit.
Out doors has plenty of space for kids to run around. Recommend to all.

The rooms were clean and spacious. We (two of us) just needed a place to sleep after a long day of driving from Adelaide. The room was clean and the satellite tv helped us fully veg out and relax. The spa bath was a welcome addition for us to soak and relax. Wifi was provided so that was a nice touch. Rooms are a bit dated in decor but hey, it's a motel, not a Ritz-Carlton. It suited out needs which were a clean bed to sleep in and a shower for the evening. Would recommend again although it was a bit expensive for what it was.

My partner and I stayed in the Gateway Motor Inn, Warnambool in preparation for our great ocean road trip. It was in a great location with close access to the town centre, the great ocean road and shopping centers.
The room was spacious and presented to the best standards, the bathroom was clean and the spa was one of my highlights. The room had an excellent sleeping area with the best mattress topper anyone could ask for! Their range of foxtel tv made for a comfortable and relaxing night in. The breakfast that we received via room service was delicious.
The manager Brendan was very knowledgeable for the surrounding area and was extremely accommodating and friendly with the best old fashioned service I have seen in a long time.
We have stayed in many hotels/motels but this was by far the best service we have ever received. We would love to have stayed longer than one night but were grateful for a wonderful stop over.
Overall I would rate this accommodation very highly and would have no hesitations in recommending and re booking this accommodation!
Thanks for a great stay!

A business meeting in Warrnambool meant I needed to overnight and after a web search I booked a room at this motel on the outskirts of the town. The reception was quick and pleasant. The room was well appointed, it was clean and the air conditioner thankfully worked well on a very hot day. The bed was fine and the bathroom had been properly cleaned. Unfortunately it has those gel dispensers in the shower but they also provide a small bar of soap. No mini bar but has free pay TV. This motel is located about 2 k's from the center of town so a bit too far to walk to the restaurants but there is a Tavern Hotel about 200 meters away which has good meals. All in All this motel was good value for the money at $99

Room Tip: Rooms down the back are better to reduce the road noise

Want to thank Brendan so much for his hospitality and service during our recent stay in Warrnambool over the Australia Day Long Weekend when we were down for the Grand Annual Sprintcar Classic.
I would recommend this establishment to anybody. Clean rooms with comfy beds and great country hospitality.
