Wonderfully friendly and helpful staff, decor makes you feel as part of the gold rush. Very relaxing environment. We had a lot of fun and felt rested when we booked out of the hotel. I would recommend it as a quick get away destination in the Johannesburg area.

Enjoyed the stay and theme park despite renovations. The theme park was amazing for the whole family. Not many halaal options though. Overall worth it. The breakfast was a bit bland and limited for my taste and dietary requirements.
