Welcome To Gold Reef City Theme Park Hotel, Gold Reef City, Johannesburg
Gold and the history of Johannesburg are intertwined. The discovery of gold in the late 1890s led to a gold rush by prospectors from all over the world to the area now known as Johannesburg.
A mere 6km from Johannesburg's bustling city centre lies Gold Reef City Village, a unique reminder of that bygone era. Centred around shaft No. 14, which was started in 1887, Gold Reef City is an inimitable combination of a theme park, a living museum of Victorian architecture and lifestyle and Africa's most unique hotel - the Gold Reef City Theme Park Hotel.
Gold Reef City Theme Park Hotel offers the chance to escape the pressure of modern day living in a safe and secure environment of fun and Old World elegance.
There is a choice of 6 restaurants to delight the palate, from stylish restaurants to the more casual eateries.
The hotel offers 74 elegantly appointed rooms in classic Victorian decor, all with en-suite bathrooms. Conference facilities cater for up to 180 delegates and a chapel is on hand for "spontaneous weddings".
Situated in the heart of the City of Gold, just 6kms from the center of Johannesburg and 30 minutes from Johannesburg International Airport, the Gold Reef City Theme Park Hotel is in the secure environment of a mining theme park. Less than 2km from the Nazrec Trade Fair Centre and across the road from Gold Reef City Casino. The hotel has easy access to the M1, M2, N1 and N12 highways.
Gold Reef City has succeeded in providing something for the whole family. There are robotic shows, clowns, bands, can-can girls, strolling minstrels, gumboot dancers and even a mini-farm.
