Had a meal at the restaurant. Good service. My meal was very nice, however the burger meals were described as average at this restaurant. Quite a busy night. No specials board as stated on the menu. Nice setting.

We booked a premier suite room at the last minute as we were driving late in the evening and had decided not to drive all the way through to Queenstown. We arrived at 10.30pm and the night duty manager signed us in and gave us directions to our room (he was prompt and friendly). Very reasonable rate of only $130NZD...

Thanks for your review. Always nice to see staff have been friendly and I will pass you comments on. Unfortunately the basin is a design trend from the early 90s. I will be getting the bathroom hooks sorted as we like to keep on top of the small jobs. Appreciate you feedback

Spent 2 nights here with the Goldwing Club. Comfortable beds and a good shower. We all enjoyed our stay and the weather played ball as well. We all had dinner in the restaurant both nights and no complaints there, George and Tracy had everything under control, food was good with ample choices for all tastes and quantities.

Accommodating and friendly staff. Spacious well appointed comfortable and clean room. Central location. The balcony overlooked a pleasant well maintained courtyard that was a flood with the most beautifully kept lavender. Extremely relaxing stay if only it could have been for longer!

Sadly we only stayed the one night. The staff were welcoming, nothing was too much trouble. Great room, spacious, well appointed with fantastic views. Ideally located close to all services and wonderful wineries. Convenience of restaurant and bar at good prices. Could not fault this motel. Could've stayed longer.

I have nothing bad to say! A beautiful place to stay, very very clean, the staff were warm and welcoming and attentative to any needs or questions we had.

This is a comfortable motel with large rooms and balconies. My premium room had plenty of space to spread out and a comfortable bed. The complimentary coffee pot is a nice touch, and the balcony makes a nice place to sit at the end of day. The bathroom is spacious but the design belongs more in a care home than...

Our experience? Wonderful. Organising a work function for 36 people is never an easy task, but the team at Golden Gate certainly made it a lot easier! The staff were super friendly, hospitable and obliging. The meal was fantastic, and accommodation clean & tidy. Added bonus of a band, and we have had one of our best work functions to...
