The Gateway was our last stop on our two-week New Zealand tour and was an excellent base from which to enjoy the attractions of Picton and surrounds. Parking was adequate and free, and the room was a decent size, with a fridge and nice clean bathroom. Unfortunately Picton is something of a sleepy town, so we found ourselves at loose...

First off, the location is great. Picton is a small town but being right in the centre was a bonus. Short 5min walk to the waterfront, 10mins to the Interislander ferry terminal, cafes and restaurants right across the road. Upon arrival we were warmly greeted and shown our two bedroom room which was clean and comfortable. A great little two...

I stayed here for one night in January 2014. I would certainly stay again on my next trip to Picton. The accommodation was very clean and everything I needed was provided. It is very close to all the shops and cafes. Kent and Marie were very helpful. We had to return our hire car when we arrived in Picton and...

The gateway is very easy to find on the High Street in Picton. Even by foot when you're arriving by ferry. But there is also a shuttle bus which could pick you up at the ferry terminal. There are 28 apartments available. All of them are well equipped. You have the choice between small rooms (2 people) up to rooms...

We came for the Queen Charlotte track and ended up liking Picton as much as the walk. We stayed with Kent and Marie and they made us feel totally welcome. This is backed up by a quality room, clean and comfortable and at a very modest price. Excellent bathrooms. The dining recommendation was excellent too. Very important, within walking distance...

We stayed at the Gateway Motel for 5 nights with our little 5 year old. The place is SPOTLESS - absolutely as clean as clean can be - very nice and tidy, well kept gardens etc. Excellent location being right in the centre of town, but not at all noisy - very quiet indeed. The owners made their expectations of...

We stayed here over Christmas for 5 nights. The rooms are very spacious and clean. Kent & Marie both show a great love for their business, and put in a lot of effort to make their guests feel at home. In our case, that did not only involve sightseeing and dining tips, but also free beers on Christmas day and...

Travelling as a family of 5 proved a bit difficult with accom bookings but not so with Gateway! I shared emails with Kent and he met our needs perfectly! The hotel upon arrival was extremely friendly, informative and very clean and comfortable! Kent was full of local knowledge and advice on places to dine (with 10% discounts involved) and his...
