The hotel has beautiful architecture features with a touch of vintage interior design in the rooms. convenient cause of the variety of restaurants situated in-house of the complex. The hotel is a bridge walk to Gold Reef City Theme Park, short drive to South Gate mall, Glen Mall and FNB Stadium

business trips are always tiresome. the staff and clean rooms are always a winner. as always we do get good rates and quality service. the entire team that I work with usually prefer to stay in the hotel as it caters for everyone's needs.

The service and friendliness of the staff was exceptional, nothing was too much effort. The room decor was elegant, modern and very trendy. The food and beverage was highly recommended in both venues, Back of the Moon for dinner as well as the allocated breakfast venue.

From the moment we arrived, our family was treated like royalty by the amazing staff. The suite was so luxurious, with everything that we could possibly need. We were transported by golf cart to the park every morning and in the evenings, the choice of restaurants and entertainment in the hotel was fantastic. The buffet breakfast was delicious with everything... More

Walk in closet, with separate shower and Victorian bath tub. When you book the hotel you get automatic entrance to the Gold Reef City Theme Park, with Thrill Seeker bands. Breakfast... More

This hotel is located adjacent to the Gold Reef City theme park on the south side of Johannesburg. This is a great place to stay for tourists who appreciate staying in a safe location with direct connections to Johannesburg's City Sightseeing bus tours.
