Absolutely perfect location in the heart of Picton - it is no more than 5 - 10 minutes walk from everything including the Interislander ferry.
Rooms are very clean, well laid out and were just right for our family. The luxury room we stayed in had everything you would need to cook a full meal (although we ate out as there are cheap restaurants nearby). The smaller room we stayed in the second time was great for breakfast/lunch but didn't have a cooktop - so check what the room has if you are intending to cook dinner in your room - they do have BBQ's you can cook on though.
There is heaps for the kids to do on the foreshore of Picton - we spent 3 days and they were busy the entire time.
The owners/managers of Gateway were super friendly and helpful - and there is an information centre at the entrance to the motel where Chris knows everything there is to know about the area and travelling around.
All in all highly recommended as a place to stay in Picton!
