Always a pleasure to stay at the theme park hotel. Just a few issues during this stay. Gecko in room upon arrival. Staff are very noisy at 6 am outside your bedroom when you are trying to get some sleep. Not halal friendly, so cannot enjoy the breakfast. The security team need to be more friendly, very harsh especially when you ask for a cart to take you back to your room.

Dear Retail 2020 Thank you for taking the time to review Gold Reef City Theme Park Hotel We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us barring the issue with security Barneys breakfast products which are fit for consumption by our Muslim clients are purchased from Halal certified suppliers , as are the products . The kitchen area is not halal or kosher due to the range of products within the area but the kitchen team are cognoscente not to cross contaminate various proteins etc prior to serving so you would be more than welcome to enjoy our breakfast Thank you once again for the review Kind regards Andrew
