“Fantastic stay”
Reviewed 28 April 2012

I stayed there earlier in April and had a fantastic stay. The room was spacious and clean and had the wifi. The owners were also very welcoming and thanks to them I really enjoyed my time in Picton. I have been traveling for a month and a half and it's definitely the best place I have stayed at during this trip.

Didnt do my homework and book ahead. Luckily the drive by choice of the Gateway Motel was perfect. Now with new owners, much of the motel has been refurbished. The room was large with a queen and a single easily fitting in, bathroom was new (just needs a shelf under the basin to put toiletries), kitchen had everything you could need including new appliances. Staff/owners very friendly and helpful. would certainly stay there again.

Room Tip: We had room 5 but I really think all of the rooms would be fine.

Delightful owners/operators. Very nice, comfortable rooms with all the nice essentials. Super comfortable bed!! Had the best nights sleep. Flat screen T. V. Unlike some motels with old box style tellys :-( Great location, right near everything in Picton. Would highly recommend and would go there again.

Room Tip: We were situated on the ground floor, no complaints, it was great.

Wow I have been in the Tourist Industry now for some years. We were greeted on arrival as respected persons. The room was excellent, bed wonderful and comfy, room warm, excellent shower and facilities.
Most of all Chris & Kerri (owners) including the lovely lady who we said goodbye to today working in the office has left us with a lovely warm continued feeling of hey. These people really care for their customers and deserve the highest rewarding on the ratings standards.
Even had a small fridge removed and replaced (by the neat German Staff) as the previous person had said it was a little noisey. What a Team. We are so happy and relaxed back in Christchurch now. Needed that short break. Seems like we ahve been away for a week.
All the very best guys, you will see us again. Greatful Thanks.

Room Tip: Choose the room we stayed in upstairs. As you approach the office look up to the 1st level on your l...

Had a great experience here- centrally located with some good restaurants around. New owners have done some remodeling and done it well.

Very clean, comfortable, quiet, excellent staff took extra care to make sure we had everything we needed :) used booking.com to book this motel for one night as i was travelling with family and were taking the ferry the next day, but we were so happy with the place that we recommend anyone who needs accommodation in Picton to check here first!!
