I spent three days at the Golden Gate just before Christmas 2018. It is in an excellent location one street over from the beach with a great view from the balcony. It is also on a tram stop which is convenient for the theme parks. The unit I stayed in was an older unit but extremely spacious (2 bed 2 bath) with a full kitchen and laundry. The price was very reasonable. I would definitely stay here again.

Hot stuffy room

Old resort and showing its age. No air con in the rooms but did come with one $10 crazy clark fan which itself looked about 20 yrs old held together with masking tape no joke. View from balcony was amazing and furniture in lounge room was very comfortable and also full foxtel available.rooms in general look their age and in need of maintenance. In short ok but you get what you pay for.

Close to everything!

Stayed here 30 yrs ago and was looking forward to the return visit. More than satisfied with the price. A spacious very relaxing holiday apartment! Our room wasn't chic, with all the latest bells and whistles, however it was beyond comfortable. Everything we needed was provided, persistence paid off and we were able to use every electrical appliance. Neat and tidy, did I mention spacious? Tried to connect to wifi and had troubles but didnt even try again as we were distracted by holidays. Staff were wonderful and bubbly.

Hi Bruce and thank you for taking the time to review the resort. Sorry there is no WiFi - sometimes with these concrete resorts, it is not viable. Glad you enjoyed your stay and hope we see you again one day. Thank you.
