Customer Reviews

An excellent Garage, bought my first ever car second hand from Golden Hill Garage. I got a lot of help from choosing the car and being able to test drive it too, it was at a great price too. The car needed fixing up before I picked but up and that was free and didn't charge me. Overall really good

First time buying a second hand car as new driver

Great service, easy process, lovely staff, nice cars


very good professional service - no hard selling or salesmen competativeness. Nothing to much trouble. Great thing was for £100 refundable deposit could hold car for a day or so, to let my partner drive it as well and that clinched the sale...so good for everybody

Great service...recommended
