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

I stayed three winter nights at the lodge. The beds were extremely comfortable and the shower was good and strong. There were plenty of power points for charging electronics and a kettle and tea/coffee/milk is provided. One eccentricity was that the hand basin is in the room rather than the bathroom, very odd. Day one we had a room service... More

I stayed at the golden gate lodge in the middle of June. Went up for a wedding and we got back to our room about midnight. Had a really sore back so ran a bath. The water was cold, so cold we couldn't use it. Very disappointed. Had a shower in the morning and the water still wasn't hot. When... More

Quite a large motel by the side of Cromwell's somewhat unattractive town centre mall. Room was clean and quite sizeable with a normal-sized double bed. The decor was quite 80s and really needs a good overhaul. We were on a B&B package but most people seem to be on a pay-as-you-go basis, so pretty much everything had to be asked... More

We stayed at the Golden Gate Lodge in early January and I was pleasantly surprised, as the last time we had been there I felt the rooms were a little tired. However they have obviously been done up since then. Our room was large and comfortable, and looked out onto beautifully kept gardens. (We were originally a little disappointed not... More

We only stayed one night at the hotel but the room was large with its own balcony with tables and chairs.The shower worked well and we slept well until there was a fire alarm in the morning(smoke from toaster I think)! So the fire alarms work well. We had dinner in the restaurant and and I can recommend the blue... More
