The room was clean, comfortable and spacious. Had all the amenities I would expect at that level. Beds were comfortable. I would have expected a hair dryer to be supplied in that p[rice range but I could not find one. I would also have expected a shower screen as opposed to a shower curtain but the bathroom was spotlessly clean.

Located just outside of Kadina township, the Gateway Motor Lodge is a quiet, pleasant place to stay. We had a room which backed onto the pool area. Good size room with a two seater couch. Had dinner at the Highway Motel on-site. Delicious meals with friendly service. Probably the best place to stay in Kadina.

Private, close to other town centres

Pros: Small kitchen facilities, shower, TV, comfortable bed.
Location: Beaches, tourist stuff,
Travelled around the Copper Coast. This motel was out of the town so it was quiet. Enjoyed using the kettle, toaster, fridge and microwave in the motel room.
