Just returned from a week at Gold - We had an excellent time for the whole week. The money spent on this Hotel has been very well spent. We were in a lovely terrace room, very modern and a big improvement on the normal types of rooms you can experience in GC. Bathroom size is a bit tight but this... More

This is a hard review to write because the Hotel Gold and the staff are amazing, nothing is to much trouble and they are always smiling but I won't be coming back. The hotel design is cutting edge, modern and chic although sometimes design has got in the way of function. The shower is amazing but so big the toilet... More
