    So my daughter really wanted to visit the theme park as she was finally 1.4m and could ride all the rides..well at least the ones that were open for the day. We started off at the ticket office where we were told that my son 1.3m does not need a arm band for the rides..ok Went through the gates now... More

    organize a ladies nite for Thursdays, and offer a couple of coupons for guests to visit the casino,for the long term invest in a roofed parking for guests because during rainy days you have to walk in the rain before you even get to the entrance, never mind your room.

    Gold reef city theme park hotel is a jewel! The staff are friendly and professional and make you feel like royalty! The room (family suite) was fantastic (spacious luxury) and the food and service at Barneys topnotch! We will definitely stay here again!

    I stayed at the hotel during a leadership training event. We finished late in the evenings. The room was always cleaned properly and prepped, there is nothing as bad as trying to resolve issues late in the evening after a long day.

    We enjoyed our stay at the Gold Reef City Theme Park Hotel.The staff was friendly and the room was clean and comfortable. The bed, breakfast and ride's package is a good value for money option. I would recommend it to all my friends.

    If you want 100% satisfaction, look no further. Warm staff, great breakfast. The theme park is wonderful and kids will love it. Staff will go to extreme lengths to ensure you are comfortable so if you have any special requirements, just speak to them. This was not my first stay at this hotel and will surely not be my last!

    Great trip - enjoyed it very much. Breakfast was fantastic - can only suggest enough milk in room for morning and night coffee per guest. The theme park was very well staffed and run on the small children side - my grandson, who is just over 2 years old, enjoyed his time there greatly!

    Perfect for stress relief after a long week, take a few thrilling rides, relaxed lunches and many eatery options to choose from in one place. Transportation to the casino for dinner and entertainment to top the weekend. Definitely worth it.
