GrandWest Deals & Specials

Non-stop entertainment at one of the largest facilities of its kind in South Africa.

GrandWest is a casino and entertainment complex located in Goodwood, Cape Town. It’s part of the Sun International hospitality group and is the only casino in the Mother City. The casino came about when a consortium formed by Grand Parade Investments and SunWest International Limited won the license to open the Cape Metropole’s first casino in 1999. By December 2000, the new facilities were in operation. Grandwest’s buildings incorporate some of the Cape Dutch and Victorian architectural facades that used to be a prominent part of the historic Goodwood Grounds.

GrandWest offers 24-hour entertainment with its Las Vegas-inspired casino, numerous restaurants and nightclub. It has two hotels and various conference facilities. GrandWest also houses the only Olympic-sized ice rink in the Western Cape, which makes it a popular destination for families. Among the other fare for visitors who are interested in something other than gambling, GrandWest has a state-of-the art cinema, bowling alley, and arcade games. GrandWest is the venue of choice for indoor concerts, variety shows and stand-up comedy, thanks to the proximity of its Grand Arena to the city. Artists that have performed at the arena include Kylie Minogue, Maroon 5, and Janet Jackson, as well as comedian Chris Rock. The venue has enough seating for 5,000 people. The massive casino – a centrepiece of the complex – has over 2,500 slot machines and 79 premium table games on its floor.

The GrandWest features a fully restored tall-ship, the Victoria II, as well as a recreation of the 1652 Fort of Good Hope.
