OK, so that title may well be loaded... but it's not!
We were told by friends who'd stayed there previously that the Border Gateway has a batting average well above its spot in the lineup and that is certainly the case. Our two-night stay was warm, comfortable and pretty much everything we look for in a motel. Reception was personable and very helpful, room presentation good, comfort and cleanliness excellent, location convenient to everything. The only negative (and really minor) was bathroom mirror location, to the side of the vanity. Hard for my partner to apply her makeup in cross lighting. (Oops, I've just been advised that is not at all minor!)
A little note of gratitude: We were heading off to Beechworth and the lady owner provided us with tickets for all-day free coffee at the Beechworth Bakery. Thank you.
A budget priced motel that is able to offer warmer surroundings, better service and more personality than many a modern one does. Worth four stars.
