Nice large room and bathroom. Great shower. Quite and convenient. Much better than when we stayed here previously under a different brand. Would stay again. Meal at the otel next door. A breakfast option, even just cereal would have been appreciated.

In February we booked 4 nights in this motel in a DeLuxe Queen Room, I asked for a ground floor room because of my knees. On arrival this week (June), we were given our room. Much smaller than expected. We had also been given a wheelchair bathroom - the ugliest, most unwelcoming room you could imagine. Apparently, if you book a Queen room you run the risk of being given one of these. Very low sink, no vanity, nowhere to put your beauty case or shaving case, and very poor lighting. Impossible to apply your makeup in this room.The shower is a tiled area with a shower curtain & when you shower the entire bathroom is flooded. In the main room, there is really nowhere to put your things except on the bench with the TV, there is a wardrobe for hanging. The mugs are extremely small, with no plates, cutlery, or microwave and ONE chair. There is a cube for a stool but to watch TV one person has the chair & so the other person lies on the bed. The pillows are extremely uncomfortable & very very high, all 4 pillows are the same with no lower pillows to give a choice. This is one of the worst motels I have ever stayed in, the price point we paid of $140 usually gives a far better experience. Last night we stayed somewhere at this price and had a table & 2 tub chairs to eat at, another chair & very adequate crockery and cutlery as well as a microwave. I would never ever recommend Hunter /gateway Motel. I totally hated my stay. The one good thing was the airconditioning which was very nice and worked well.

Thank you for staying with us and we appreciate your feedback. Yes we have 4 access rooms which are also a deluxe Queen room. The same layout as a normal Queen room but with the altered bathroom. Plates, crockery and cutlery and a microwave are available on request on Reception. An additional chair could have also being provided if requested from Reception. Softer pillows are available if you let us know we can assist.

The rooms are tasteful and comfortable and the sliding doors to outside are a good feature. Even though it is close to the highway it seems quiet when in the room. It is close to the neighbouring hotel which is very convenient for dinner. We find it handy as a place to stay when visiting the Hunter Valley or Central Coast.
