That's a cheep job,what ever the engine your partner has.A reputable garage would charge at least three hours labour (50-60 an hour) plus VAT.
Gates is a top quality name,100 about right.
Trouble is,the fitter? If it's cash in hand he is doing it for pocket money. Is he any good? If the job went wrong would you have any come back?

You dont say what engine but that does seem cheap for the fitting if its a 2 litre or non turbo engine then fine its not a long job but 1.6 is more time consuming its not any harder just takes longer due to extra stuff to remove

But make sure the water pump is changed too.

I wouldn't get too worked up over changing the water pump, my wife's 2.0 hdi 307 is still on the pump it left the factory with at 252k miles....
Most garages recommend changing it because it means extra profit.
