Arrived at reception to be told that they could not honour my booking as there were no rooms available so after travelling from Perth for 10 hours or so I had to try and find other accommodation. Unfortunately, Carnarvon was totally booked out so went to the pub instead and one of the staff members there rang the Caravan Park. Luckily, there was a last minute cancellation and I was in the right place at the right time otherwise I would have been sleeping in my car! Stressed, grumpy and tired!

Convenient to find and good parking I wasn’t overly impressed with cleanliness Bathroom tap dropped, bedside table sticky and bed lamps flickered and could not use them. Staff advised they didn’t like Wotif booking, gave me business cards to use next time. Was charged more than wotif price

Property was fine. It was making a booking through wotif which was the problem. When arriving there was no book8ng and it cost$15 more on arrival. The property told me they do not use wotif or other online booking companies. So really unsure on what when how? Great place to overnight though. Zero complaints on the place

Always stay at the Gateway. It is easy to access whether in a truck or light vehicle, friendly helpful staff and rooms though simple are all we need. Love the buffet too.
