The room here was a good size as was the kitchen. The motel also had washing machines and drying lines which we used. It was just a 20 minute walk down the beautiful greenways of Cromwell to the mall area with shops and restaurants, so we took this walk both nights we were there. The motel is also a 5...

We stopped in for a night on our way back to Christchurch. Small and cozy motel with only 6 units. Unit 1-3 have a beautiful view of the hills, and a nice little table and chairs outside to enjoy the view. Friendly and accommodating owners. Happy to give tips on dining and the local area. King Beds...really comfortable. Had a...

Really reasonable prices even for this time of year. Has its own kitchenette with 2 hobs that were clean and tidy as were the entire premises. Owners are good sorts and easy to deal with, they are also able to advise on good eateries and activities. 10/10

I stayed here while away for work several times. Sometimes with very short notice and change of plans but nothing seemed to phase Hayley, very easy to deal with and extremely helpful! Nothing is too much to ask or an inconvenience it seems. Thank you. The rooms are not totally modern but quite warm and well appointed with all the...

I have stayed at the Central Gateway on and off over the last 5 years, depending on the weather in Central Otago - black ice on roads/snow etc. but everytime I come here it is always a relief to arrive. With the new owners, things have not changed. The welcome is warm and friendly and I am pleased to say...

You are unlikely to find a friendlier welcome than at the Gateway! Every time we spoke we got friendly attention and recommendations. The Hotel is on the older style, but the rooms are quite large with separate basic kitchen, bathroom etc. Huge king size beds were very comfortable and the room was very clean. Very little outside noise to disturb...

We stayed here for one night in the middle of our New Zealand trip. We were exhausted when we arrived after the 5 hour drive from Christchurch and we were welcomed with a smile by the new lovely owners. We were given great suggestions of what takeaway was good in the local area. The room was very large (as was...
