Heritage Gateway Hotel sounds am impressive place to stay. Although not impressive we found our room to be quite spacious and clean. The hotel did have a laundry room which was an asset. Omarama is quite a small place with few places to stay. Rather than call this a hotel we would rate this as a perfectly acceptable motel.

Very outdated accommodation. Dirty carpet and the shower was dirty. Was rudely awaken by house keeping at 7am dragging there trolleys around on a Sunday morning. Won't be back unless some upgrading was done to the rooms.

The photos of this hotel looked much nicer online than it did in reality. Our room was small with low lighting. The bathroom fan was broken as it rattled a lot and all through the night disturbing our sleep - we didn't bring this up as we were only staying for one night, however if we were planning on staying...

Stayed one night on a New Zealand Tour. Hotel in need of an upgrade. Was fairly clean and the staff helpful. I had a very large room, upper level, with a not very spectacular view of the grounds--Room 115. Room had a balcony but would not consider it "private". Hotel dated but not "quaint". Not many travelers and the hotel...

This was an interesting place to stay. The rooms are off a courtyard and the doors were really difficult to lock. The TV and bed covers were rather dated but there was a room heater and an old fashioned electric fire bathroom heater. Sparse toiletries, no bin in bathroom and the pillows were really crumpled. Useful washing line. Buffet dinner...

If I could, I would give a -5. We are here on a family and friends vacation from US. We booked this hotel as a midpoint between Queenstown and Christchurch. The hotel is ok. However the biggest issue is the way we were treated by a chef. We had a group dinner booked and the pizza was burnt black. When...

Spent one night here recently. Nice sized room, and decent bar and restaurant. Unfortunately, we wanted to use wifi and access cost $5 per device. Per room we could understand, but since we both wanted to use it we had to pay $10, $5 for each access card. Catch up with the rest of New Zealand! The dining room ran...
