The price is very good for Johannesburg. Barbara and Ollie are wonderful hosts who are very kind. Nice gardens. It is very nice and definitely worth the price you pay. The problem for me was the location, it is situated out if town and the road to the guest house feels unsafe. Once you get to the guest house you... More

We booked a stay for a night (and our friends for 2 nights), the website was lovely and the facility is listed as a 4* bed and breakfast, so I was expecting something completely different that what we got. I am not sure who listed this as a 4* but I would not class this as more than a 2*... More

The grounds were phenomenally gorgeous. We enjoyed early morning walks among the meticulously kept gardens. The rooms were huge, clean, and private. The best part for me was the Classic English Breakfasts. I've had many in England and I believe these were the best I have ever eaten. Thank you for your hospitality and top-notch service.

The very kind hosts went out of their way to make us feel at home. They gave directions, recommendations, and made sure we were well taken care of. Located outside of the city, but felt completely safe.

Having been to Johannesburg in the past I was a little concerned regarding the security of Riverbend as there was little mention of this on the website. However this was the most relaxed I have ever been in Johannesburg. Electric fences and gates being the norm in Johannesburgh I was pleased to see the B&B had both. We were a... More

Lovely place to stay. Very friendly staff, willing to help you with anything. Very quiet and peaceful, however only 10-15 mins from nightlife, restuarants etc. Staff are very trustworthy which makes a nice change....a bar that you help yourself to...and complete an honour book stating wat you've had!! Rooms are very spacious and clean, with a lovely fireplace...which was needed... More

Riverbend country house is located in a quiet area of fourways Guateng province, south africa. the service is excellent, staff is friendly and courteous. The good thing about this place is you can get a hearty breakfast and dinner without the concerns of going out at night to find a restaurant. Close to great shopping at Fourways and also Monte...
