Everything about Gateway was fabulous. Impeccably Covid clean, great location, easy parking, well supplied share kitchen, super comfy beds with quality linen & dreamy pillows. Angelic cleaning crew, well maintained property with pool to cool off in the summer heat. Website easy to navigate & easy phone booking direct to hotel with Yvette & Sam. Minimal to faint road noise didn't stop us sleeping like babies. Tasty well priced homecooked food delivered to our door. Their in house menu supports local produce. What more could anyone want.......second stay for us & definately not our last. WONDERFUL.

Great place to stop if you leave Brisbane late, just four hours on the road. Didn’t even see the managers as we arrived late and left early. Room was large and we slept well on comfortable beds and the minimal road noise didn’t disturb us. Wifi was fast and free.

This fabulous little motel has everything you want from lovely hosts, very clean and well thought out rooms. The rooms have everything a guest might want from tea kettle to foxtel available you will want for nothing. The grounds are well maintained with a light bit of flair here and there. The added bonus is the attached Chinese restaurant that is well priced and the food is to die for. When in town we highly recommend you stay awhile with the lovely folks of this establishment.

Old school motel but very clean and comfortable and John and Margaret fill in managers were very friendly. Would happily stay again. Beds were very comfortable. Great recommendation to eat at the grand hotel as well.

Staying in a hotel for a week you get to see the best and worse a place has to offer. Having said that I saw nothing but good things! Yes a pleasant surprise, as usually there is something! But no the room was great the staff friendly and you can get breakfast and dinner although only for 5 days, and the place is fully licensed, just ask at reception for the selection. The hotel is easy to get to, with parking just outside your room, and extra if needed. There is a pool, just a word of warning the pool is well fenced but unsupervised, and deep (for kids) there is a table with an umbrella and Lounges. Air con is good. The kitchen is good with a stove top and sink. There are extra dishes and cutlery for self catering, and a laundry which was great! All in all a great stay, and better than expected, can’t recommend enough!
