I chose this hotel because it has a direct entrance to the park which is indeeed very nice and just around the corner from the hotel. However, there were some problems too: Hotel Gold River is really not recommendable if you arrive by train because the train station is about 5 kilometres away from the hotel and it's pretty much in the middle of nowhere, ie no taxis or anything. So you'll have to call the hotel and they may send a shuttle to pick you up but there's no guarantee for this, it's a completely voluntary service provided by the hotel. Another problem I had was that I had bought some things in the park and I had had them sent to my room. However, the day I was leaving they couldn't find one of the things I had purchased so I had to fill out a form and they promised to send it to my home address as soon they'd find it. Then they drove me to the station. I had to wait about 45 minutes for the train and 5 minutes before the train arrived a staff member came back to the station and brought me the missing things that I had purchased. That was good service but of course it shouldn't happen in the first place that things you buy in the park get lost on their way to the hotel. Breakfast was also a big disappointment as I was given the choice to have breakfast at 8:30 or 10:30 - nothing in between! I could only choose between these two times... not very customer friendly if you ask me! In my holidays I want to have as much freedom as possible and I don't want anybody to dictate me when to have breakfast...
