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

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.
