After booking this motel on line it was fair to say we were disgusted with what was to follow. $300.00 for a night in this place is just absurd. First of all the key didn't work properly,apparently my fault as I didn wriggle it enough to make it work. Once entering the studio apartment we were disgusted with the condition...

Dear Rohanj1 Thank you for taking the time to review the Gateway Motor Inn Warrnambool, very much appreciated. The reason for the vanity just outside the bathroom is due to a corner Spa in the bathroom. We are currently renovating some bathrooms to remove the Spa and fit a new vanity. Keep an eye out for these rooms. The TV's...

We had a shocking experience on the way to Warrnambool from Mt Gambier. So I was expecting another typical country motel. However, Gateway Motor Inn surprised us. It was clean and comfortable. Staff, especially the housekeeping department, was absolutely brilliant. Nothing was a problem for them. Rooms were as advertised and, for once, matched the photos on the booking websites....

Good value for money, Gateway is a basic room with simple and clean facilities. Basic continental breakfast was included which was ok. Wifi worked well and was included in the rate which was great. Under promised and over delivered for sure, friendly staff and a pleasant stop over during our road trip. Not sure about the $20 spa surcharge in...

Reviews on trip advisor were promising but this unit was below expectations. No crockery supplied and just about everything looked like it needed renewing. Price $100, would try something else. Maybe this motel is more suited for long term worker accommodation? One night stay was plenty.

There was a bar sized fridge, large sink area, good-sized TV and Wifi. The bathroom was a great size and had rails in the shower and next to the toilet. The...

As a sales rep on the road, you want it to be easy to get things sorted. Always easy, clean good size rooms, comfy bed and a great shower. Important when travelling for a few nights. Wifi helps for easy of end of day reports and catch up,with the office.

Australian hospitality at it's best. The owner of the place (sorry I forgot your name now!) was friendly and accomodating. He provided me and my family a lovely warm eggs bacon and toast brekkie - YUMMY! The room was cozy, comfortable and clean. Definitely very value for money considering the good location too.
