Right on the main road on the left coming off the GOR. Good value and nice rooms. Staff very friendly and really make an effort to ensure you have a nice stay. The service centre for dinner and drinks is back a little on the same side of the road. You can even have your favourite fast food.

All staff are very friendly and genuine and couldn't do enough for us. Rooms are very spacious and clean. Entertainment by Warren and Wendy fantastic. Shopping centre nearby. Excellent restaurant meals for breakfast and dinner. We had upstairs room near the road and experienced no disturbance at all.

Had a great time at gateway, the staff went out of their way to make our stay comfortable. They all treated us more like friends than customers. The cooked breakfast on the last morning really capped off a great week. Will recommend Gateway to all our friends and family. Well done to you all David and Terri

My husband and I are on a road trip for three weeks and are trying to stick to a budget. We chose to stay at the Gateway Motel in Warrnambool because of the great rates and weren't really expecting much. However we were very pleasantly surprised at the size of the room, the cleanliness and the friendly and helpful staff.... More

We had a very large room, with a shower and a spa. well equiped and very comfortable beds. Considering it is on the highway, it was very quiet. These people donated the rooms to us for a charity walk and were very helpful and pleasant.
