Thank you Gavin for your comments, the Barossa Gateway Motel is nearly as old as me and i understand the need for renovation but we may both be past it. The staff here take pride in the presentation of rooms and hope to keep all our guests happy and comfortable. Come again any time, cheers Gf

Hello Patsy, sorry you found the rooms a bit small, however the Barossa Gateway Motel was built back in the early 60's by a hard working Italian refugee on a limited budget. The Barossa Gateway Motel has stood the test of time and offered good value accommodation for half a century plus a decade. Try us again and ask for the biggest room in the place ( still not huge thou). Cheers Gf

Liked the availability of the room. The mattress in room 9 needs to be replaced as it was very uncomfortable with springs hurting my back.

Our apologies Jeanette for the ordinary mattress. You must have made the Lady of the House aware of the problem and she has rectified it.Just this afternoon a bloke came into the office and commented he just had one of his best sleeps ever in Room 9 so things can happen. Try us again sometime and ask for mates rate for a two night stay. Cheers Gf

Paid in advance, non-refundable. Noone at reception when I arrived and I waited 10 minutes for my call to be returned. Saw the room and immediately rang my daughter and got her to arrange alternative accommodation for me. Wouldnt recommend this place to anyone.

Our apologies to Marg. we have been known to duck out on urgent business at times and leave the fortress unguarded (we are mostly a one man band). I cannot recall the cleaner advising the room was not used, so I am wondering if Marg got the wrong Motel? At the Barossa Gateway Motel we do understand that guests expectations do differ.

Rowena and her staff at the Barossa Gateway Motel do work hard on most days to get it right and appreciate your comments. Thank you

The owners are lovely, they were very considerate of my late arrival and made check in easy. They did not overdraw my account when I didn’t have funds and instead sorted it out at check out which I thought was very considerate. However, the floor in the room was filthy, they need to get someone to come in and professionally clean the carpets and properly mop the Lino. Perhaps better cleaning staff is required or more of them.

Not too sure about the floor, recently we have commenced a carpet shampoo clean I expect things to improve. I cannot employ more cleaning staff without jacking up the price, I will get a bigger whip - should fix the problem?? Here at the Barossa Gateway Motel we are inflation fighters! with just a sprinkle of humour and goodwill for guests.
