thanks very much with the amazing service we received, from the reception, to the medics, to the room service and the kitchen staff!! The rooms are very pleasant, clean and attractive. I love the balcony and the fountain in the front of the hotel.

I came to johannesburg on business, and this hotel was recommended by a friend. It exceeded my expectations. Its decor was elegant, the room was quite comfortable, and the staff was courteous and accommodating. (A special kudos to my friends in housekeeping and at the reception desk). Should I return, I WILL DEFINITELY stay here again!

A few hours after checking in, one of my kids fell sick, and after receiving treatment at the in-house clinic, we decided to postpone our stay. This must have posed an administrative inconvenience but we were not made to feel that way at all. In fact, the staff at Gold Reef City Hotel and Casino were very concerned and helpful.... More

Very nice rooms with character and excellent bed. Pampering service with small chocolate for goodnight. Good food, but mediocre breakfast - it's the only aspect of the hotel that needs improvement. Good selection of places to eat/drink in the casino complex.
