Gateway is a must stay for people for a stop over or a few days before or after an island jaunt. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The staff extremely friendly and the food delicious. Yes, it's an older property, but outside is glorious. If your lucky to have the back rooms the view of the hills are glorious.
Really friendly staff, good location,always clean and good value
We decided to book a 1 night stay at the Gateway rather than trying to travel to Plantation Island in one day and it was the best decision we could make. It is literally a 5min walk across from the airport but they have complimentary shuttle bus available as well if you have a bit of luggage. Our room was neat, clean and comfortable for our family of 4. Pool was clean and warm. Drinks were affordable, as was food. The curry I had there was the best meal I've ever eaten in my life. Breakfast was also yum. Without a doubt will stay there again either prior to departure or when we first arrive.
Quite a nice stop over.
Easy for a night on the mainland, beautiful staff, food and amenities. The pool was great and even had a waterslide.
We stopped here before heading to the naviti and it was perfect for this. The kids loved the slide in the pool
We stayed at The Gateway Hotel when we arrived late afternoon in Fiji. It's just across from the airport and we walked over! The rooms are adequate and air conditioned. The gardens and pools and dining options are perfect! Family friendly, we spotted lots of children. The live entertainment around the pool and dining area was a pleasant surprise! We wouldn't stay more than a night or 2 though, because you're in Fiji right, lots more to do and see!
Great for the overnight stay required near the airport. Clean, comfortable, pretty and friendly.
Room was beautifully cool on arrival.
Facilities were amazing for the price.
Lovely people and service.
We had to stay here when Jetstar cancelled and moved our flights. It was literally 2mins walk from the air port, had 2 pools 1 with a kids slide, 1 bad and 1 dining space hug service was amazing and food was really nice. For the price of this hotel we thought it was amazing! Clean rooms, still lovely grounds around the hotel. Good if you were traveling to an island the next day. Very Wel priced abd great service.
This is a great hotel for a short stayover when moving to other resorts off the mainland. Ideal location from the airport.
Great service pick you up from airport free of charge. Quick check in .Great food and lovely staff
In the past and last visit a pleasure stopover and the staff, accommodation and amenities a appreciated
Our 4th time staying at gateway in transit to plantation and home. Rooms clean and modern now. Kids love the pool with the slide. Food is pretty good but often slow.
Close to airport and easy to get to resort from here.
Gateway is really lovely, and superbly located a short walk from airport. Lovely rooms, fantastic pools, and great meals and drink options, with lovely staff and live music to help kickstart your island holiday. We stayed 3 nights and did a day trip to eco trax and a day trip around Nadi and sleeping giant zipline and the mud pools. Gateway highly exceeded my expectations, and we would stay again. Only downfall is no shops in short walking distance. But a quick taxi to Namaka area is a great cultural experience and has all your grocery needs.
We stayed at Gateway for a night to catch an early flight the next morning. Great location opposite the Nadi Airport
We stayed at Gateway for a night to catch an early flight the next morning. Great location opposite the Nadi Airport.
We did not dine in-house.
Excellent family stay, close to airport and good facilities
Bula vinaka to all the staff they we fantastic.
A great hotel conveniently located within walking distance to Nadi Airport. Good size family rooms and 2 pools including a fun water slide for kids (and big kids!!!). Great place to stay if looking to give yourself some time before transferring to another location or flying home!!!!
Who would have thought a hotel located right by the airport would be such a find!. We stayed overnight on way in and out to make other connections. Gateway had an authentic Fijian feel with live music, great pool and nice relaxed atmosphere. The rooms were big and very comfortable. The convenient location took stress out of onward traveling. Highly recommend.
We only stayed one night. The transfer to the airport was great and staff were helpful.
We always stay here on our first and last night in Fiji and never regret it. The pool is fantastic and the rooms are comfortable. The staff are lovely.
Couldn’t ask for a better location just across from the airport. Kids loved the pool and the slide into the pool. Room was ok, would have been nice to be offered a upgrade into a closer room to the pool as the hotel was very empty. Room was dark but ok. Not easy lugging the luggage up the stairs. Dining area is gorgeous, lovely atmosphere. Recommended for a transit hotel on a budget
We stayed our last night here due to early flight. The hotel is opposite Nadi Airport and a shuttle goes back and forth to drop travellers off. The food was very nice and the dining and bar area were lovely to sit with fans and a quiet pool. The big pool has a waterslide that the my son loved and a big shade area over the pool. The rooms were clean and lovely, and the bed was very comfortable. I spoke to some other travellers who had just booked a "day room" to sleep freshen up before connecting flight. Very nice overall and staff very helpful
Chosen for the location. Walk across the road from airport. There are street lights and footpath to get you there or a shuttle bus from the hotel. Great facilities, staff were very friendly
Great as a stopover hotel as is a five minute walk from the airport . The transfers collected us the very next day from the bus stop out of the front of the hotel . Clean bedding comfy bed but tiny room .
Located across the road from Nadi international airport, The Gateway Hotel was perfect for our purposes, as we arrived late into Nadi and flew out early. The pool slippery slide was a hit with the kids. Rooms were clean and spacious for our family. Staff were polite and courteous.
This hotel was nice enough, neat and clean but no frills. If you just need a one night stop over to catch an early flight or are coming in from a late flight then it serves that purpose well. My kids enjoyed the one day we had there and spent lots of time playing on the pool slide. The staff were lovely and restaurant had nice food. Prices were very reasonable.
Clean, tidy and very pleasant overnight Nadi transit stop to the Fiji islands. Great pools, bar and restaurant for meals. The room was large and very comfortable with a small patio overlooking the mountains.
On return from the islands a week later, we had a pleasant transit afternoon at the bar beside the pool before the flight home. A great convenient location to Nadi airport.
Fiji Gateway is always a wonderful place to stay either going to an island or returning. If only a few hours to kill after leaving PIR before your flight , using the pool and amenities is a great place to fill in time. Have a swim and a drink besides the pool. It's a great place to stay for a couple of days if doing a bit of sight seeing before your trip home. Situated across from the airport, you would never think it was there.
Great rest place after flights kids loved the pool and waterslide
We stayed at Gateway before returning home. It was the perfect overnight stay. Kids loved the waterslide and pool, parents relaxed with a cocktail before an easy dinner at the restaurant. Courtey bus dropped us to the airport early the next morning. Was the perfect end to the perfect holiday!
great place with pleasing basic facilities. Ideal to start your holiday in Fiji from
Restaurant evening meal was superb
The Staff were very helpfull when we missed our bus to Denarau ferry. They had their bus take us and we just made it.
conveniennt, clean, friendly
Great for a quick overnight stay, or to use during transitioning to other hotels. Staff were friendly and bed was comfortable.
Great hotel. Friendly staff. Convenient location
we also stayed for lunch and swim on return wait for airplane, which was greatly appreciated
wouldnt get that service in Sydney hotel
Recommend mentioning it to other travellers who have to wait for plane
Enjoyed our stay
Hotel is conveniently located within walking distance of Nadi airport.
We took 2 grandchildren and stayed in a family room. Just enough space for an overnight stay but the hotel has a good pool and a fabulous waterslide so we didn't spend much time in the room....aircon worked ok!
Food is ok but reasonably expensive.
Always a great place to end your holiday with an overnight stay before the flight home.
Great pools and great rooms with very comfy beds. Everything you would want for a stopover
Comfortable, convenient location with shuttle from airport - perfect for an overnight stay when arriving late in Fiji. Reasonably priced food and friendly staff.
Excellent Motel for an overnight or longer stay if you are leaving early or arriving late. A1 Staff and hospitality, clean and comfortable rooms and nice well priced food.
Great choice and location for an overnight stay either from or going to the airport. Excellent free pick up from airport. Friendly helpful staff
Directly opposite airport but beautiful, peaceful grounds. Comfy beds, excellent service and pool and waterslide are a good way to kill time while waiting for transfers.
We have stayed at Gateway several times over the years. We continue to return, as we haven't found anywhere better for a short stay in Nadi. Handy to airport, courtesy van, clean & comfortable rooms, nice restaurant and lovely recently upgraded casual cafe/bar area, friendly and helpful staff...the list goes on. Would absolutely recommend.
We liked the location, close to airport and Denarau plus not far from lautoka to visit family. Staff were friendly and helpful.
Walk from the airport. Good food and service.
The Gateway is a bit of a Fijian Institution, reminiscent of Colonial days. Very conveniently located, and surprisingly quiet. Accommodation is basic but perfectly adequate, staff are lovely and helpful. Lovely large pool and compact Gym. The restaurant is unexpectedly excellent, great selection of delicious dishes.
Near airport and great for transit accomodation
Rooms were very clean and tidy. Staff friendly and helpful. Food was ok and fast. Perfect location for transit.
Our family of 5 stayed 1 night after returning from an island before heading back home on an early morning flight. The best things about the hotel are it's position opposite the entrance to Nadi airport & the giant water slide at the pool which would have entertained the kids had we arrived earlier in the day. The room's furnishings were dated but it was clean.
Good value, very neat rooms, not ultra modern but well maintained and very clean.
Small fridge, comfy bed, great size room, tidy hotel grounds with amazing staff. Prompt, attentive, polite, an asset to their company. Lunch was delicious, way better than we had eaten in another resort. They even helped to call the day spa place to confirm our booking. Even at our 5am departure they were lovely and we could not have asked for more.
We used this hotel for 3 nights to look around nadi and Lautoka. Bus stops right out the front made this so easy. Staff were lovely and the coffee shop was great for everything.
lovely place to stay ,very handy to airport
Plantation is great for families, very clean, plenty of options for kids and a beautiful place. The food options are a little limited but the quality was as expected and compared to places like Bali I would recommend Fiji to any family looking to get away.
This was a good location for getting off the plane late. It is too far away to go out to see markets or eat else where, but the meals there were OK and the kids got good use of the pool. Thanks.
Very convenient, shuttle service too and from the airport very welcome. Children loved the pool and slide.
This place was great I will stay again. We stayed one night before our transfer and then also for a few hours before our fight home. Lots of friendly and helpful staff great pool to relax in. Free transfers to and from the airport an extra bonus :)
property had a great pool with a water slide, was clean and comfortable.
this property was close to Nadi airport and a comfortable overnight stay
our second stay at the Gateway.. We'll be back. Couldn't fault it! loved it.
Fiji Gateway Hotel is a mid-budget range comfortable stopover hotel with fairly nice rooms and great facilities. It's main feature is the lovely dining areas and an extensive range of reasonably priced meals to suit every budget. The food is great and the service excellent. Being right opposite the airport, it is very convenient.
We would stay there again, no problem.
Cant fault anything about this place. Very nice!!
We were pleasantly surprised by our stay at Gateway. The rooms were very comfortable, the food was great and reasonably priced and the whole family loves the pool and water slide.
Close and handy to Nadi Airport. 20 minutes to Nadi town or Marina.
Nice restaurant- bar - pool etc.
Great place for the family and so close to airport. Very friendly staff.
Easy overnight stay for connecting flights however there is plenty to do for longer stays.
Perfect for the overnight stay we had before our transfer
Clean hotel and good for late arrivals, easy for kids as its next to airport and we didn't even hear much of the planes.
We loved the stay to conclude our Fijian holiday. Very handy to Nadi airport. Gear pool, slide and tennis court all used by our group go 10. Thanks for providing the birthday cake for Vivi who turned 12, special Fijian singers singing happy birthday!
Handy stop over before heading out to the islands. Close to the airport.
A very good hotel in a excellent location for anyone transiting Nadi. I will definitely say at the Gateway next time I'm travelling through.
Great place for passing through before or after airport. Food was pretty good although it took a while for meals to come out both times which makes it hard for hungry kids. Friendly and helpful staff and clean and comfortable.
Raffles Gateway Hotel is a convenient place to stay if your looking for accommodation close to the airport. The service was great and the facilities are good.
Very basic accommodation would not recommend long stay
Friendly staff, nice sized rooms an adequate hotel in Nadi for those who love to swim and want something close to the airport.
All staff are FANTASTIC and treat us as family as we have been there so many times.
It's great as a stop over being directly opposite the airport they have free transfers between the hotel and airport. Check in was really quick which was impressive.Not for long term stay. Aside from airport it's not close to anything else and taxis have become ridiculously expensive in the last 2 years.
It serves its purpose very well. We stayed one night to catch our boat the next day. Right next to airport and bus to marina. Pleasant, comfortable, nice staff and great pool. Would stay there anytime again if in transit to elsewhere.
Good location after a late flight pity the pool couldn't be used as it was too late
Raffles Gateway Hotel is the best way to start or end your holiday if you are visiting the islands and you can't make the times work for your flight. We stayed one night at the beginning of our holiday to Plantation Island, but we would have been happy to spend another night or two there. Facilities are very comfortable and the staff lovely. Kids love the water slide.
We arrived early in the morning and the Raffles Hotel was a great recommendation for a rest until we were able to transfer to our hotel on Denarau Island later in the day.
We stayed two nights at Raffles as we were on a late flight and couldn't connect to our next destination until the next day. We decided we wanted to do a waterfall tour and so we added the two nights to accommodate for this. The hotel had a lovely feel, nice gardens and a beautiful vista of the Fijian mountains. The room was adequate and spacious, we didn't spend much time in there as our girls (3 and 1) were both obsessed with the waterslide! It was one of the highlights of my daughters trip. The staff were all so friendly and they adored the kids. Grace who worked on the tour desk helped us to organise a tour to the sleeping giant zip line which has a cascade waterfall. They were open until late at night (around 8pm) which was helpful. The reception staff were great, printing some emails for me and organising transport locally to get some supplies. The bartender was a gem. He was one of the nicest staff members I have ever come across. I wish I could remember his name! The dinner was very good, the breakfast was average but we would definitely stay again should we need to.
Great for one night stays
Convenient, clean and comfortable. Friendly staff and fun pool.
We travelled with four other families and Raffles Gateway Hotel was the ideal location to unwind after flying in from Melbourne and we stayed here night before tranfers to Mana Island. With a courtesy bus to pick up from the airport, very friendly reception staff and great facilties. The rooms were basic yet comfortable, pool, waterslide, bar and restaurant were great.
On our last day our flight home was delayed by 3 hours, we approached Raffles and they invited us in to use their facilities to kill time, and when travelling with kids, this was so awesome. Thanks again Raffles.
Close to airport, good stopping point before travelling on.
Breakfast ordinary but other meals ok.
We only overnighted at Raffles as we have done before, the Deluxe rooms are just beautiful, clean and the beds are just so comfortable this resort only lacks one thing and that's good food, our dining experience was just terrible we sent the food back to the kitchen and ended up ordering something else , staff are lovely and the hotel is so convenient other than the dining options at the Raffles I would recommend this place defiantly!.
Very close to Nadi airport. It was ok to stay.
Perfect for a one night stay before transferring to your resort.
I would recommend to anyone.
I will stay there next time in Fiji for sure.
Great as always. Helpful as usual. Just wished I'd stayed longer.
Central Hotel, close to shops, good as a base for day trips or a stop over. A little noisy with the road works. Wasn't impressed with the price, quality of food, and service in the resturant. We had issues with our free breakfast that was included in our package, it was sorted in the end. It wasn't buffet style, staff had to ask various times what we wanted, nothing was written down, more than once it came out wrong. We went out for meals. Room was clean, we had requested a room opening to the pool with balcony, but the four of us were put in a small studio type room on the side. Most of the rooms that were pool facing with a balcony were empty the five days we were there. Granddaughter loved the water slide, we all enjoyed the pool.
Good Location if you have to stay a night in Nadi before moving on.
Have stayed here several times and although most people use it as a stopover, we spend two nights here and enjoyed them by the pool. Unfortunately I was taken ill and the hotel arranged for my friend to speak to a local doctor. The doctor recommended I attend the hospital and the hotel provided a complementary taxi for all trips required to the hospital - something unheard of in Australia
Couldn't ask for better service and facilities.
We have stayed here a few times as it is across the road from the airport.
Service was great and they gave us a free late checkout as our flight got changed. Kids loved the big water slide and the pools.
Great stop over before heading to the islands
Perfect first night in Fiji before heading to the Island ...it didnt feel like you were situated on a busy Highway opposite the airport..
Very nice clean hotel and extremely close to the airport. Excellent for overnight stay waiting for a early flight home.
We were only there one night but were very comfortable and enjoyed the facilities. Being so close to the airport was wonderful.
Delighted with all aspects of the hotel from friendliness and helpfulness of staff, awesome powerful shower and even vegetarian menu options. When we return to Fiji we will definitely be staying here again.
Raffles was very close to the airport and very comfy and clean. We would definitely stay there again. Great for overnight stays or short stays. Price was also great.
We were only at Raffles for a night but it was a very comfortable stay. Great family room (for 5). Very friendly and helpful staff.
Thoroughly enjoyed everything.
Good value for money and well positioned for a stop over night
Great place to overnight. Easy access to airport and very useful stop for the kids with fun pools and waterslide.
Ideally located opposite the International Airport. Shuttle service was excellent.
Great place for families wanting a stop over before and after a flight
Great service, ideal location as it is situated directly opposite the International Airport. Staff were friendly and approachable. The facilities are basic but clean. You have a restaurant and bar that is also reasonably priced and offers a variety of foods. A good place to stay if waiting on transfers or in between stops during your travels.
Convenient location for stop single night stop overs to link with flights.
Raffles is located directly opposite the airport and so perfect for catching early morning flights. The quality of the rooms is ok but wouldn't want to stay there for an extended period.
Great location for overnight stay before transfer next day - can walk from Nadi Airport.
We stayed at Raffles Gateway as our flights and island transfers didn't match up. A perfect hotel if you need to get an early flight or arrive in late.
Meal was really nice and service was great.
Room was really large and we were 'upgraded' to a room that overlooked the pool, however there was a rowdy group at the bar which woke us up.
Good for a short stay, close to airport.
Management went out of there way to please without a fuss
Pool and waterslide fantastic for kids afternoon before flight home. Food at restaurant average. Lovely large clean rooms.
We had a great 4 night stay at Raffles. Pool and dining area clean and inviting, service was great and location was good to catch bus in either direction. Luisa at Rose's in the lobby was a great help to plan our outings from there. Highly rec.
This hotel was all we needed for one night. Food was good and the kids loved the water slide at the pool. Prefect for those early morning flights.
Great hotel, great food and exceptional service by all staff
not best location
was a great place to stay overnight clean and great customer service.
This hotel offers exactly what it is meant to, a comfortable stopover between destinations. The kids loved the pool and slide. Looking around, it looks to be the best hotel close to the airport. They also mentioned that they are happy for you to use their facilities if you have a long wait for your flight. Fantastic
Great stop over point . Meals are excellent. Proximity to airport. Staff are friendly and very helpful.
good for a 1 night stay before going out to the islands
I found Raffles to be in an excellent location and very little noise from the airport. There is a large pool and on a hot day it is so inviting. A bus outside the hotel will take you into Nadi for just $1 Aus. Staff friendly and always welcomed you by name. Great place to stay overnight or longer.
Only stayed one night on way to islands. Great location, very friendly and helpful staff. Clean, quiet, food great, excellent pool area. Nothing to fault at all.
Perfect for resting before & after flights. Staff are lovely.
This property is directly opposite the airport and for adults an easy walk - no need for transfers. Have stayed here 6 times and is always wonderful.
Great for stopover on your way to or from your resort.
Perfect overnight stay for an easy return home the following day. Great staff, clean, well maintained rooms. VERY fun waterslide ( even got nana on it!!). Thank you!!
Friendly helpful staff
We only stayed one night but the music, food and room was good. The staff were friendly.
This was a good spot for travelers opposite the airport. Was nice, but I wouldn't want to stay there for too long nothing else close by
Great location friendly atmosphere lively people
Great location to stay at in between flights and travelling to the islands/coral coast as it is right opposite the airport, you can even walk there to access ATMs and buy mobile phone cards. Great pool and waterslide and the indian curries at the restaurant are a must!
Emma I have often been a customer of this Hotel..it is always very good/ie the Raffles Gateway at Nadi/Fiji
Great value, good food, accommodation and so close to the airport, what more could you ask for!
We could/should have stayed longer there.
Close to airport. Good size pool and comfortable room.
Perfect for overnight stay before transferring to island stay, clean and adequate, reasonably priced and just over the road from the airport so not too much travelling.
After spending a week on the islands, this hotel was perfect for our last night in Fiji to line up with out flights coming home. Straight across the road from the airport with free transfers to and from. Surprisingly quite considering how close to the airport you are. Room was neat with out being fancy and breakfast was also good. Great value for money. Would use again if in the same situation.
Front desk was efficient for our check-in, had lunch and laid by the pool for the afternoon. A far better way to spend a few hours than sitting at the airport and the room was not expensive.
We found this to be a good overnight stop only.
Convenient to the airport.
Efficient, lovely staff, well-priced, delicious food, beautiful gardens, great pool and slide. A great place to stay on your way to and from the islands.
The staff were friendly, there not that friendly in the bigger resorts.
Also cheaper than the resorts, but not much to do.
We stayed at Raffles for 2 nights upon arrival in Fiji and for 1 night before leaving. The location was excellent bejng right across the road from the airport with a free shuttle bus to and from the airport. Our room was clean, the airconditioner worked well, the bed was comfortable, although the lighting could have been brighter. The food was excellent and great value. Every staff member that we had contact with was very friendly and helpful. We will definately stay at Raffles again when we return to Fiji.
A good place to stay when awaiting onward travel
We have stayed at Raffles 3 times previously, the rooms are comfy, staff are lovely, food is yum, pool is awsome..... We will definately return.
Our last night in Fiji, the room was clean and spacious. The service was great and dinner was the best we had over our stay in Fiji. A great stay whilst waiting for your flights.
A very well maintained property and so convenient to the airport.
Great hotel for short stay, food very good, pool excellent, a happy surprise.
