Great service and wonderful staff”

Clean and spacious room, early check-in and late check-out, very friendly staff

i was very impresssed on the kind of service that the rivonia b&b staff had provided. the staff (namely zani, fillitah, farmer, jessica, charles and trust) were very friendly, kind and have a genuine desire to make your stay enjoyable. the room was very spacious and clean - it's better than a 4 star hotel! as a frequent traveller, i greatly appreciated that i was able to check-in quite early and was offered to check-out on a much later time. the breakfast selection was awesome. they have earned my trust and loyalty - i will always stay at rivonia b&b whenever i go back to johannesburg.

Oasis in Johannesburg”

The garden environment, the friendly staff, the breakfast

I loved my say at Rivonia B&B. it is in a lovely quiet location 15 mins from the Gautrain stop at Sandton which has direct access to the airport. The rooms are spacious and the B&B is set amongst beautiful gardens. The staff were friendly and attentive and nothing was too much trouble. The breakfast was superb and they provide dinner some nights or have takeaway good quality dinners you can heat in the microwave is the restaurant is closed. Would highly recommend this B&B.

Fantastic for the weary traveler”

Lovely grounds, great staff, comfy bed

I'll keep this uncharacteristically short because it's all been said. A fantastic stay. -Grounds are lovely; pool, bird feeders, gardens… -Rooms are small (I had a standard) but well appointed. I wasn't sure why so many people commented on the comfort of the beds, but yes, the beds are amazing. I don't know why… I even discussed it with the manager. Beyond a comfortable mattress, the quality of the cotton on the sheets is outstanding. I wanted to take the bed home with me. The only negative was that I couldn't get internet in my room, though it was fine elsewhere. -Staff: extremely friendly and accommodating. I chose to stay here because a reviewer said they had been allowed a late check-out with no problem. Mine was extremely late, and they couldn't have been more helpful. The manager even gave me a lift in her car because I was stranded without cash. It's the little extra things… I had desperately tried to change by flight to avoid staying in Joburg on my way back to NAmerica from Cape Town, but in the end I'm glad I wasn't able to. The day I spent lounging in Rivonia was the perfect way-station in a gruelling trip home. Full marks.
