If I am just passing through I generally don't have high expectations, but this place was so outdated and old that it left a bad impression. Parts of the hotel have been renovated, but I unfortunately got one of the old rooms. Remember those old boxy vacuum-cleaner looking hair dryers attached to the wall (circa 1980s)? This place had one.... More

We selected Cromwell as we didn't want to stay in Queenstown, just spending the day there and than on to the West Coast. Nothing wrong with the motel, good bed, good room. We didn't like its restaurants and bars and went into town and were surprised to see old Cromwell, quaint,

We found it to be a great hotel, we stayed upstairs, so had a great view over the vine yards. The service was excellent, It wasn't very full when we stayed so the two nights we had were lovely and quiet. We had a fantastic Christmas Eve and Christmas day with them. Lovely bottle of complimentry wine and cheese board.... More

there is not much choice in hotels in this area so we stayed at the Golden Gate lodge. What can I say! No elevators so you better travel light if you have to carry your own luggage upstairs. The food is ok but a bit expensive. I cannot have dairy products so the girl at the bar wanted to charge... More

Thank you for your review. The Golden Gate Lodge is a 3.5 star Property, we do not offer an onsite concierge service, however if you were physically unable to carry your own luggage or had excessive amounts we would have been happy to help. I understand your disappointment in regards to Soy milk, however it is an additional cost and... More

We had our wedding reception at the Golden Gate lodge in November and it was the most amazing day. I had this vision about how I wanted the conference centre to look and my husband and I as well as all of our guests were blown away how amazing it looked. The staff were exceptional and made it so easy.... More

An ideal location for the amenities of Cromwell and the surrounding districts. Room on the ground floor was spacious and comfortable with adequate heating during the frosty night. Great to have the electric blanket to take the chill out of the bedding. Has the usual tea and coffee facilities and a very clean bathroom. Plenty of space in the free... More

This was an average place to stay, it was lovely and clean but quite dated, we had people that liked to bang their doors all hours, which seemed really loud, the restaurant had friendly staff and lovely food.

This complex is very handy to all shops and close to the lake front. We were there for a recent conference, which the hotel was well setup for. The food was basic but well cooked and staff very helpful and friendly. The rooms were getting very tired. The bathrooms were by far the worst aspect of the spacious room. Terrible... More

This lodge is beautifully appointed in the lovely Central Otago town of Cromwell in New Zealand only 50kms from Queestown or Wanaka. The room we stayed in was spacious, well appointed and quiet. We ate in the adjoining restaurant where the food was excellent, service was friendly and the menu was varied with many options to choose from. Breakfast had... More

After experiencing the worst service ever at another venue we found the cafe Pisa at the golden gate. Waitresses are pleasant and know how to greet people even when they are busy. Food is well priced and cooked. Fresh and tasty. Very impressed with the kid friendly area. This is by no means fine dining but it doesn't pretend to... More
