I enjoyed my stay at Gold Reef Casino Hotel and was treated by all staff with excellent service. I will definitely come back and stay at this hotel. The breakfast team was amazing and was eager to assist with additional meals that were not provided.

Gold Reef City has it all - from roller coaster rides, to casino, to gift stores, to entertainment theatre, one cannot possibly get bored here as so much to do for all ages. Many different foods to choose from. Conveniently situated with lots of parking.

Poor reception handling of Rewards Program discounts, Stayed in both Standard Room and Nile Suite during this stay. If you must stay here, choose a standard room . The suite is in a state of disrepair.

Staff on customer interaction, friendly and helpfulness. Wi-Fi be moved from "always on" to hotel along industry norms. "Always on" not user friendly at all and staff not of the friendliest people around. Constant arguments to get Wi-Fi connected. Breakfast staff be trained to know that you don't fill up coffee cup to the brim with no space for milk...

Please include channel 161 on tv channels and receptionist must improve in terms of returning room calls and maybe have telephone records. Thumbs up in terms of Security. I will definitely visit the hotel once more
