What a novelty hotel! Good rooms and friendly service, but ideal for family break aways! This is not 5 star BUT the entertainment is 6 star. Breakfast is good but no health bread or similar. The historical buildings is quint and beautifully kept. There is rides, visits to gold mining, movies, shows and what not! A real gem!!

I've had the pleasure of staying at some of SA's best Casino's Hotels and had been accustomed to a certain standard, especially with the liked of Tsogo Sun. Whilst I understand that this hotel aims to recapture the South Africa of a bygone era, I feel that the entire look could have been carried out in a more attractive manner.... More

Nice hotel in an old fashioned style from the Gold Rush times! Room was very comfortable and the breakfast was good. The little town theme park is absolutely fabulous for families with kids on holiday! Safe and very entertaining.

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

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.
