This hotel casino is in a relatively safe area in Johannesburg right next to the Gold Reef City theme park, that is a disgrace on the face of theme parks in the world in general, and the apartheid museum. The hotel is really nice and the service is friendly and good. The rooms are beautiful and well appointed. The downside... More

This is an excellent hotel with an extraordinary cost/benefit ratio. Quiet and spacious rooms with retro Victorian tiles in the well appointed bathrooms. Access to the car park for hotel guests can be confusing particularly if the separate hotel entrance at the parking fee plaza is closed. What surprised me the most was how easy I could get to Marshalltown... More

Newscafe employees need a bit of wake up in terms of addressing clients - some have a bit of a rough edge, however generally an excellent place. Rooms were fabulous. Is gambling starting time not too early?!!

It was our experience that this was a great family break and were very nicely surprised by the high standard throughout this facility. As soon as the building works are completed it would be a great and wonderful holiday break for a family. The rates for 3 days and longer could be taken under consideration and that will keep the...

To me the room was ok. The only problem is that my room did no have a Bible, please if all your rooms doesn't have Bibles may that be considered as we are living in a sick society that can be overcomed by the Bible.

I've read several reviews where guests didn't enjoy their stay. I had the exact opposite experience. Friendly staff, clean room and the breakfast at the Pavillion Coffee Shop was more than adequate. Just remember when booking to insist on a room that is on the 2nd floor, away from the restaurants. This will reduce the noise level considerably.

Great service. Abit far from shopping but great for a relax. Would be nice if they offered more in rooms as per other hotels. Cleaners missed a few things and forgot to replenish items which was disappointing.

The room was okay, and I like the privacy of it. I like it and its good that when we go upstairs we only use access card to the hotel, that's something that other hotels can do, My partner and I enjoyed our stay. Though we were lost and kept on calling for directions and none of your people could... More

It's my second trip here I think I was here 5 nights last time and this stay 10 nights. This is a Casino hotel, with not that many rooms (less than 40?) so book well in advance... but has... More
