This is the perfect location for an overnight stay. There are quite a few units on the property, so there is no view. The relaxation areas are very limited, as is the parking. However, the unit was clean & adequate. Breakfast was tasty

We were extremely impressed with the unit and the lodge as a whole. Your staff were impeccable! They had no hesitation in assisting us with anything we needed, they were pleasant at all times and were friendly for the entire duration of our stay (This includes the kitchen staff, cleaning staff and the lodge manager). We will definitely be returning...

We stayed at Gold Reef Place for 2 nights, the rooms were clean and comfortable, the staff are an asset to the guest house, they were very friendly and helpful. We would recommend them to other travelers.

A friend booked this for us and him to stay at for our final night in South Africa. The website looked good and the descriptions/images looked promising. Unfortunately, it didn't really fulfil our expectations. The thatched roofs were quaint, however it meant that we could hear everything (including the theme park). In addition, they don't really help with heating -...

Good day Thank you for your review. We are sorry to hear your stay was not as expected. We just wish these "issues" could've been brought to our attention at the time of your stay, as these would've been rectified immediately. Given our proximity to Gold Reef City Theme Park (which it states on our website), it is natural to...

We booked a 2 night stay at Gold Reef Place. we were very pleased with what was on offer as advertised and to our dismay. After coming from a beautiful Lodge in Mulderdrift to this was just a bad ending to our beautiful holiday. A long list, The pillows were batting stuffed in pillow cases, no bin in the room,...

I booked 3 nights accommodation at Gold Reef Place for my husband and brother for the weekend (04-07 October 2012). Needless to say, what was "promised" by this guest house, is not what was delivered. The services advertised for this guest house included DStv as well as breakfast, that was said to include (among other things) eggs, bacon and sausage....

Me, my wife and 2 daughters stayed over in Gold Reef Place for 2 nights. We were very surprised to find this little gem in Johannesburg. For a superb rate we could sleep in peace, have our car in secure parking and were able to reach different locations in and around Johannesburg with ease. Very neat and spacious rooms, clean...

Johannesburg was our first stop in a month long trip in Africa. Apart from its great value and location (great prices, great security, walking distance to Gold Reef Casino, Apartheid Museum, and a huge shopping mall), the owners/operators were absolutely fabulous! The airlines lost our luggage and they were extremely helpful in assisting us in tracking down our lost luggage......

We stayed in a charming chalet round the back of the property, with its own kitchenette and a newly fitted ensuite shower & wc. The room was spacious and very clean, the shower was good, although we did run out of hot water on the first night. Good selection of pastries and breakfast cereal available in the rooms, with the...
