Improvements are needed in the rooms as they are beginning to deteriorate especially the ceiling. Bid of decor will also give them life. Restaurant dinner menu is awful, new chef with great menu options desperately needed.

The hotel has its own secure parking close to the entrance. Security will direct you to it once you enter Gold Reef City.

There is a swimming pool at the Theme park hotel, but it was green when we were there in September. Also looked like a hangout spot for the staff, with all the hotel chairs standing around there.
