We stayed at the Hotel Gold River for 1 week from 8th June, still early in the season so it was a bit quieter which worked well for us and our 3 year old son.
The hotel itself is fantastically themed with so many little details to discover it is an attraction in itself.
We stayed in Lucy's mansion, check in was quick and the receptionist spoke great English and could not do enough to make sure everything was OK.
The room was a great size with an amazing view, checked/cleaned twice a day. Only down side would be the walls were a bit thin and there were plenty of children making their presence known (no fault of the hotels).
We really enjoyed the food, Breakfast was a vast choice which suited us individually, the buffet style dinner never disappointed us; some 'favourites' show up every day, which may not be ideal for some but when there are children involved, I couldn't be happier to stick to what we know!
Access to the park is instant, we went there every day and loved every minute of all it had to offer. The water park (extra cost), was worth every penny and we went twice, again being out of season works well here as I can imagine it gets packed.
The pools at the hotel were clean and well maintained, we loved the pool side bar for a drink at the end of a long day.
All in all I am so happy we made the choice to stay here, we were the only people left on our bus at the end of the hotel transfers and were worried this was a bad sign, I have no idea why this was but would encourage anyone who is undecided to stay here... You wont regret it!
