I am proud to be associated with a brand that is constantly meeting and excelling in service delivery and hospitality. The staff is always friendly and very helpful. I feel like a king that is receiving world class service and feel more at home then any other establishment from other groups outside the Southern Sun group.

The location and the property are perfect. The reception staff was very courteous - we stayed for 2 nights with family (21-23 april 2017) and we enjoyed the free access to Theme park as being hotel guests. This also is located just next to Apartheid museum (and red bus stop) so was added advantage. Ejoy

I enjoyed my stay at Gold Reef Casino Hotel and was treated by all staff with excellent service. I will definitely come back and stay at this hotel. The breakfast team was amazing and was eager to assist with additional meals that were not provided.

Gold Reef City has it all - from roller coaster rides, to casino, to gift stores, to entertainment theatre, one cannot possibly get bored here as so much to do for all ages. Many different foods to choose from. Conveniently situated with lots of parking.

We stayed at the hotel to facilitate travel to the SA Champs competition held at Nasrec. The hotel staff were unbelievably helpful and polite during our stay and the room was extremely comfortable, we can highly recommend this hotel. Our only difficulty experienced was the telephonic booking process which was VERY frustrating as the price changed within 4 hours of...

Poor reception handling of Rewards Program discounts, Stayed in both Standard Room and Nile Suite during this stay. If you must stay here, choose a standard room . The suite is in a state of disrepair.
