This is a unique hotel in Johannesburg as it is situated in the Gold Reef City Theme park but has its own access point. The hotel is scattered around the quaint "Victoria" village that may have been a suburb of Johannesburg over a 100 years ago. The reception is situated in the old banking hall, the bar is in its own saloon building across the street and each hotel room is in its own little house off the street. The disabled room has an enormous bath room and is well equipped with rails etc. Great pool area if you just want to chill, and 3 different banqueting halls. There is a chapel in the village and the room rates are really reasonable should you want to host a wedding! All in one safe place. An interesting way to spend a night or two in Joburg, and perfect location for the Apartheid Museum, The Calabash (World Cup Soccer Stadium) and tours into Soweto.
