Consider staying overnight at Gold Reef City

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 28, 2012

A couple of years ago, I stayed a couple of nights at the Protea Hotel in Gold Reef City whilst attending a workshop, and was very pleasantly surprised by the experience.

In addition to the more conventional hotel accommodation at the Casino, a number of the buildings in the Gold Reef City theme park have been converted into 'period' accommodation, furnished in the style of the late 19th century. Once the theme park has closed and the hoardes of day visitors have dissipated, it's pleasantly atmospheric to wander around the park and imagine yourself back in (a sanitised version of) Johannesburg as it would have been in the gold rush of the 1880s and '90s.

If you stay over, you can take full advantage of the delights of the casino, as well as dining at one of the many restuarants and perhaps attending one of the enoyable shows at the Lyric Theatre, all without any concern for having to drive back to your hotel. Well worth considering as an option if casinos are your sort of thing.

Also bear in mind that the tremendous Apartheid Museum is just over the road from Gold Reef City, so staying a night here would also be a very practical way of visiting an attraction that is a little out of the way if you're staying in the Sandton or Rosebank areas.
