What a relaxing, lovely place! Our room was really a suite with a sitting space, walk-in closet and tub with separate shower. Impeccably clean and modern. Don't be put-out be the high fences, topped with electrified, barbed wire. That seems the norm in Johannesburg. The grounds are so relaxing on the covered patio and around the pool. Breakfast is extensive... More

My group of four travelers recently enjoyed two nights here and our stay was top notch! The rooms are well appointed, spacious and comfortable and the breakfasts were delicious. We ordered dinner in from near-by restaurants and enjoyed eating outside in the covered patio. The Lodge is a short walk to the Rosebank Mall and recently renovated Rosebank African Craft... More

I stayed at Rosebank for my first two nights in Africa. From initial contacts and arranging transfers, my later than expected arrival, to my departure, Anne was always available, warm, welcoming and happy to help. The property is cozy and inviting, with excellent security measures and spacious rooms. Breakfasts were generous, with continental and hot serves cooked to your preference.... More

We stayed at Rosebank Lodge a couple of years ago, and chose it again for our recent quick stopover in Johannesburg. The accommodation is of a high standard, and the breakfast is very good. Anne is usually on hand to meet and greet and help you settle in. We were in an Executive Room this time. It was spacious and... More

I arrived at 6.00pm,dragging my suitcase and without a booking. The lodge was fully booked but without hesitation, the owner gave up her room for me! My stay was amazing, the staff friendly, nothing too much trouble and the way that my clothes were ironed, five star! I had to extend my stay, the lodge was full but the owner... More

As a Management Consultant I have been staying at various Guest Houses and Hotels in South Africa and abroad over the past three years. I can honestly say that Rosebank Lodge with its excellent management and friendly staff is my preferred home away from home. It is perfectly located in Rosebank and their focus on security makes you feel safe.... More

We stayed 2 nights en route back to Cape Town from an overseas holiday. The rooms are tastefully furnished with comfy beds, free WIFI and a flat screen TV with DSTV. Our family of 3 was accommodated in 2 adjacent rooms in a small corridor of only 3 rooms which was perfect. I really don't think all 3 of us... More

Dear Stone family, Thank you for your lovely reivew. What a pleasure it was to have you stay with us. We are delighted we were able to assist you with an extra Classic room (for one person only) at such a reduced rate for your son. Although only 500metres from the Mall and Rosebank Gautrain station, with smaller persons alongside,... More

Unfortunately we were quite disappointed not with the place or the area itself but with the way we were greated which was very rude as soon as we entered the premises. They have tried to make us feel better after that but thre was no going back I'm afraid. This is not a place I would recommend.

As a high standard corporate guesthouse with outstanding staff, we believe these persons must be referring to the backpacking inn of the same name down the road. More

The lodge is located in a quiet leafy street in a "good" part of Johannesburg. There is good security in the streets with resident patrols. The accommodation is excellent. The most comfortable bed and pillows I have ever used. The staff are friendly and helpful. The room is large and well equipped. NOTE that in Winter it can be cold... More

Clean and very nice bedroom (maybe a bit small), standard bathroom. Very friendly staff, great breakfast including fresh food and pastries. Close to Rosebank Mall with lots of restaurants. Safe parking on the premises.
