Check in and check out were easy, the man on reception when I checked in was very helpful (offered dining suggestions etc.). The room was spacious, clean and well maintained. The bed and pillows were comfortable and there was a nice armchair in the corner of the room. A lot of hotels/motels in Maitland have inconvenient access from New England Highway i.e. access from one direction only but the Best Western Hunter Gateway is located just off the highway with a roundabout at the highway intersection allowing easy access to/from both directions.

On the banks of the Hunter River, Maitland offers a fascinating mix of attractions. Shoppers can visit the High Street Mall or the open-air Maitland Heritage Mall. Hikers can go on bushwalks in the nearby Barrington Tops nature area. Thoroughbred farms abound in this area, as evidenced by Maitland's sheep and horse markets, which are the largest in New South Wales.
