Best value for money ever... loved every minute of our stay. the hotel was luxurious and the staff was welcoming and courteous. entering the theme park for free was an unexpected bonus that we thoroughly took advantage of every day.

Don't recommend gold reef city casino Hotel worst service ever. next to Cape Town waterfront Hotel I really don't recommend these Hotels. Go Elsware. They think they doing you a favour. I knew gold reef when it was great. Now a ghost town.

we stayed for two nights just for leisure. we pretty much enjoyed our stay, the rooms are very neat and clean with white bedding and towels. The only thing that need improvement is the Wi-Fi speed and reliability. Other than that the hotel is fabulous and of good quality.

This hotel is not managed well. Rooms are not cleaned and maintained appropriately. Staff are inefficient. Quality of in room dining is poor. Check out process was inefficient. Rooms are not cleaned appropriately. Blood stains on curtains. Linen contained dirt marks on both days. Toilet was not working. Called maintenance twice to solve issue to an average satisfaction.

Stayed two nights at the Nile and Tiber Suites at casino hotel, these rooms are supposedly the best rooms in the house. Suites are spacious enough for 4 adults each. However these are not maintained at all, with furniture and curturning damaged as well as bathroom tiles which are not cleaned well. This is really not what you would expect...
