Good for family entertainment

We visited GrandWest with friends and kids and found good entertainment for all, especially the children. The fast food outlets are in abundance and of quite a good quality

This is not just a casino, but an all round entertainment center. Depending on your desire, you can ice skate, watch a film, grab a live performance and a good meal. Afterwards I was directed to welcome center for a reliable taxi. As there was a red Toyota conquest posing as a taxi at the fountain. I was later advised... More

Only there on business, so only interested in Restaurants. Many fast food places, reasonably priced. Several restaurants. Ice rink, but in the evenings mostly closed for public due to team training.

What the hell is R75... More

Since sunset was an hour away while we were at Camps Bay we decided to go to the grand west casino for a look. It was overwhelming. Got to know that this is the only casino around and on a weekday it was quite full, mostly with senior citizens. To play you have to make an account and card and... More

So disappointing. We paid R650 per person to see a fading star. The sound: Absolutely terrible and fluctuated between being unable to hear to exceptionally loud. The camera work: Again terrible. Only focused only Julio (badly - and the same shot all the time) with the odd shot of 1 of the guitarists (there were 3), the keyboard player and... More

I went twice in two days. That's just how much I love visiting this place. I love playing the slots and there are so many machines I can stay there for hours. I also love the dining, the shops and the entertainment for children as the arcade kept my niece occupied for three hours. Parking is easy and I always... More

Went tenpin bowling after work with colleagues. Great fun at just R50; really worth it! Shoes were a bit stinky though, so take spare socks. The toilets are a bit far from the lanes so although we had a beer at Spur (you can't drink beer there), we had to have a few toilet breaks. As with most casino's and... More

Booked for my lightie's 11th birthday. Arrived on time to find 3 lanes out of order and poor staff trying their best to cater for all the other parties and queue of normal folk. Our lane broke halfway through game and had to be reset, and then again in the 6th game. Also not enough light balls to go around... More

If your punters are comfortable and happy, they will sit for longer and yes, as we all know, probably spend (or lose) more money. Our table (blackjack/full) was having huge amounts of fun but this was despite having two (consecutive) surly trainee dealers who were painfully slow. To crown it all, we ordered two cokes and one coffee which were... More
