Dear Evans thank you for staying with us at Golden Gate Guest House. I am sorry that you had a problem of getting in of which we were not aware as guests have their own access getting in and out without any problem. We are looking into it to see why you were unable to get in and thank for your feedback.

Outstanding staff

Great hotel, my room was clean, well kept, very comfortable. Staff are outstanding, always friendly, always ready to help. I would thoroughly recommend this hotel. Great value for money. I have stayed in many much more expensive hotels in Jo'berg, this place is better than most.

Good, clean but nothing special

Posted Apr 24, 2014
The staff were very friendly and the rooms were kept clean. When I arrived there the previous guests had locked the bathroom and the window had to be broken to get access the the bathroom. The window was boarded with cardboard while I was there and so I had to lock myself in the bedroom every night as anyone would be able to access the unit through the window. I had breakfast meetings for the first 2 days I was there but on the 3rd morning decided to have coffee and toast - there wasn't any butter (how can a guest house not have such a basic commodity!) So did not bother to go to breakfast on the rest of the days to save myself the aggravation.

Satisfactory Stay

Posted Sep 13, 2013 on Hotels
We found the Golden Gate Guest House to be ok, overall a rating of 2.5 stars.The staff are very friendly and the breakfast was good but the hotel is noisy and the decor is outdated. Hence I find the guest house over-priced.

Make sure you can get in late

Posted Sep 7, 2013
Pros: Nice and friendly and free wifi
Cons: Making sure people who stay inside can get in late as reception is not 24/7
Location: There's a small shopping centre with a restaurant. Sandton is about 6km away by car which is a major suburb with hotels, shopping centres, convention.
The only problem when I was coming late and didn't have keys to get in. It took over half an hour and another person who stayed there that opened for me. Make sure you can get in late either someone can open or you have the keys.
