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. The room was a great size, bedding was clean and comfortable. The only downfall was that they didn't have air conditioning, (during our stay it was very hot), but for the... More

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... More

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... More

Overall a very enjoyable two nights in a remarkably quiet room in a hotel on a busy state highway with lots of truck-stop customers. Service was consistently very good - Michelle on Reception was awesome! Truckies were largely very considerate as they left in the wee small hours. I was disappointed in my one meal but others spoke very highly... More

Great place to stay. Friendly reception staff, lovely room and comfy bed. We did not dine, so cannot comment, heard a band somewhere, when we arrived but absolutely no sound in our bedroom. Great!. We recommend this place and will be back some day

I would rate this hotel 5 out of 5, staff of every department very friendly and helpful, we stayed with 3 children and they were very accommodating, I would hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to stay in Cromwell, awesome outdoor area for the kids to play which included tables games and a large grassed area with well...

Nicely set next to the golf course and close to the Cromwell Mall, easy walk. Clean rooms and very good service all round. Good restaurant menu. The gardens looked great and added to the quality stay. Higher recommended!

Rooms are average, they are spacious but the bathroom could be better designed. Each room has a private courtyard or balcony. The public courtyard is beautiful, flowers and herbs everywhere. Many tables with tic tac toe for the young and young at heart to play with. Cooked brekkie is average, nothing special.
