    I have stayed at the River of Gold a few times and have always received great service and amazing fresh food. Mick and Lee go out of their way to be helpful in any way they can. The best restaurant in Cooktown!

    Stayed here by myself for 3 nights on business. Found the staff to be very friendly, and the room were very clean and comfortable. The restaurant and bar were very welcoming spots at the end of the day. Ensure you try the hot rock meals.
