Welcome to Gateway North Motor Lodge & The Coffeepot Cafe, Kaiwaka.

Gateway North Motor Lodge offers 8 high quality fully self-contained units;
We have 2 studio units and 6 family units, located behind the cafe, all with their own parking spaces.

It's just 10 mins to the beautiful Mangawhai Beach, 20 mins to Langs Beach and Waipu Cove and only 30 mins to the famous Matakohe Museum. We are 45 mins from Whangarei and only 90 minutes from Auckland.
There are also 4 golf courses within 15 mins drive.

We are easy to find on State Highway 1, the main road North, with a large safe parking area in front.

Gateway North Motor Lodge and The Coffeepot are family and pet-friendly.
Well known to many New Zealanders as a coffee stop en route between Auckland and Whangarei, we are the ideal place to stop over, whether visiting Northland for business or pleasure. Our busy cafe serves all-day breakfasts and light meals which makes it great for even a brief stop.

We are the perfect place for a company team building weekend with conference facilities available for 40 people.
