Gold Coast Hotel
Travel Blogs from Hong Kong
Breakfast was presented with all the elegance, delicacy and finesse you'd imagine from an Oriental country. Even the UHT milk pots were arranged in a flower and each of the lids had different flowers pictured on them. A message on the table read 'Love our World, Don't Waste Food' - I can dig that.
What is this? Summer!? Felt very odd and …
I spent the morning yesterday in my own temple prior to visiting the temple of Wong Tai Sin. My temple I speak of is of course,.... the beach. I'm on the South China Sea, only a wave away from the Pacific. Beachcombing the coast I found that the shells here are different from others I've seen, including lots of mother of pearl and not the type that …
Siegfried is definately a Germanic man's name and hardly befitting the petite 30-something Chinese lady with a penchant for Ballroom Dancing with whom I shared a taxi from the airport.
Living only in the next borough to me in London, Siegfried is over here visiting family and meeting her reminded me of one the reasons I simply love …
Bliss... I had forgotten what it felt like to have my own bed and not in a bunk bed, and have my own room with people that I actually want to share with and knew very well. Don't get me wrong I loved the hostel experience of meeting new people and I had a right laugh, but I am older and am used to the simple things in life... Like my own bathroom …
We spent the last 2 nights here and, like Hong Kong Island and Kowloon, the weather was grey and misty! Today, Friday, we are leaving and the sun is shining this morning!
The Hotel and the grounds and gardens are really beautiful. We ate o=in the local Piazza on Wednesday night and took a taxi to Tuen Mun on Thursday to experience their …

Historical Traveler Reviews Gold Coast Hotel Hong Kong
My United flight from Tokyo to Taipei was diverted at the last minute to Hong Kong. The airline did a fine job of busing us to the Gold Coast Hotel, which is a big resort facing a beach on one side and a pleasure boat anchorage on the other. The views are lovely. The building has a grand multi-story lobby, bougainvillea plants spreading from tiny little balconies, and placid, spectacular views.
Great spot for family stays...yet quiet and picturesque.
Although it's a little out of the way for some, it's an excellent venue for those looking for some solitude while in country. A grand hotel, with spacious rooms and service in the traditional manner. They cater a lot for local occasions (weddings/celebrations etc) so it's a great way to see something different in the venues. Very enjoyable and diversified family style buffet/s on offer for all meals, as well as select menu/s and very friendly & helpful staff make for a pleasant stay. We had a high-tea in the same manner as at the Savoy in London, and couldn't fault it. The local area is very pleasant and plenty of things to do & see on long walks.
We had a great four nights at the Gold Coast Hotel. We were exhausted following a hectic seven days sightseeing in HK city, and this was the perfect way to unwind. It was spotlessly clean, had friendly staff and good location next to beach and marina. The pool area was fantastic and the food was great value, especially the lunchtime set menu. It was easy to get to from Hong Kong centre- just a 45 minute bus ride from Huong Hom station in Kowloon on the 260x. Also it's really easy to get to the airport- the hotel provides a shuttle service that takes 45 mins and costs HK$95. There seems little of interest in the surrounding area, so it is just a place to go to unwind. The only drawback was that it was sometimes a little noisy at night- the soundproofing between the rooms that had connection doors wasn't great! However, all in all we would really recommend this hotel.
I just visited at four different hotels in Hong Kong and Gold Coast Hotel was definately the best value for the money.
Lieben das Gold Coast Hotel
Wir wollten einen kleinen gemütlichen Ort in Hong Kong finden, wo wir mit unserer Familie unseren Chinaurlaub beginnen konnten. Wir fanden das Gold Coast Hotel und haben jede Minute dort genossen! Es gibt einen wirklich tollen Sandstrand, toll für einen Spaziergang mit der Familie.Das Hotel ist wunderschön und hat überall Marmor. Das gesamte Personal ist äußerst freundlich und hilfsbereit und auch das Buffett war erstklassig! Wir hatten ein Zimmer mit Balkon zum Hafen hinaus und fanden den Blick durch die großen Türen einfach herrlich. Das Hotel bietet einen kostenlosen Shuttelbus ins Zentrum nach Hong Kong an, der alle Stunde frequentiert und ungefähr 25 Minuten dauert. Ein wunderbarer Aufenthalt!
Nachdem wir einige Tage zum Shoppen in Hong Kong waren, wollten wir einwenig im Gold Coast Hotel relaxen und erst mal von allem entfliehen.Auf Empfehlungen hin hatten wir uns dazu entschlossen, außerhalb der Stadt zu wohnen. Was für eine angenehme Überraschung. Das Gold Coast Hotel liegt sehr nahe an der Insel Kowloon, aber wenn Sie ein Stück vom besten Hotel auf Hawaii haben möchten, dann buchen Sie das Gold Coast für nur ein fünftel der Preise auf Hawaii. Was für ein toller Deal mit tadellosen Zimmern, Tonnen von Marmor und absolutem Überfluss. Es ist offensichtlich, dass einige Investoren tief in die Tasche gegriffen habe und es wird sich für sie lohnen! Der große Vorteil ist die ähnliche Atmosphäre wie auf Hawaii, der Ruhe der Gegebenheiten und die tropische Umgebung.Wenn Sie allerdings en Freund des städtischen Trubels sind, dann sind Sie hier falsch. Wenn Sie die total Entspannung in einem 4-5 Sterne Hotel suchen, dann ist diese Hotel ideal für ein paar Tage. Eigentlich würde ich es jedem, der in Hong Kong und Kowloon war, zwecks einer schönen Entspannung im Gold Coast Hotel empfehlen. Dafür ist das GC Hotel wahrscheinlich sogar die beste Adresse außerhalb der Stadt. Sauberer und besser als manch schöne Hotels auf Hawaii. Hier beruhigt sich alles viel schneller und Sie können in ruhe relaxen.
Just returned from six days at the Hong Kong Gold Coast, where my wife was involved in conducting worldwide training for her firm. Having been to the Peninsula in Hong Kong (the best city hotel in the world) on vacation last year, I wasn't sure I wanted to accompany her to this out of the way place that looked as if it belonged in Cancun, and thus I checked it out pretty thoroughly. On balance, it seemed worth the trip, and I'm delighted I went.
From the moment we checked in we were disappointed. We are a family with 3 small kids aged 1,3 and 5 and stayed 4 nights in the hotel. When we booked we requested interconnecting rooms and a couple of days before leaving Australia we checked with the hotel about interconnecting rooms, which they confirmed. We arrived at about 11 pm and got taken to our room. We were not given interconnecting rooms. After much mucking around we were given an upgrade to a 1 bedroom suite, which was a nice room but it had no beds for the kids. The porter disapperaed and we were left to move the luggage between the rooms. By the stage it was about 2am so we gave up and sleept in what we had. The next morning started well with a great breakfast although it was very expensive.
Loved the Gold Coast Hotel
We wanted to find a place in Hong Kong for a small family vacation before going into China. We found the Gold Coast Hotel and loved every minute of staying there! There is a wonderful sand beach that is great for an evening stroll or the kids. The hotel is gorgeous with marble everywhere. Everyone of the hotel staff was friendly and very helpful. The buffets are excellant too! We stayed in a balcony room and loved looking out into the marina through the large maranda patio doors. When we wanted to go to downtown Hong Kong the hotel provided a free shuttle service every hour and only a 25 min trip. An excellant stay!
