Lovely small boutique hotel close to the rosebank mall. Room was large and nicely decorated. Pillows were great ( I hate hard big pillows). Best was the service - like going to visit welcoming family. And the price was right including a home made breakfast to your liking. Lovely place. Highly recommend!

I had a delightful stay at Rosebank Lodge for two weeks.. Anne was a delight and always there to help you if needed, as were her "girls". The rooms were lovely, quite spacious and beautifully appointed, all set around a very peaceful garden and pool. It was very convenient for the town which you could easerly walk to if you... More

We stayed at the Rosebank Lodge for two nights at the end of April 2012. It was our first trip to Johannesburg for eight years and we were a little apprehensive. Rosebank Lodge is well located near to the Rosebank Mall (walking distance), the Gautrain station and with easy access to motorways around Johannesburg. It is a beautiful old house,... More

If you aren't an independent traveler, this might be a good option. We certainly found more than a hint of the "old" South Africa here, particularly in some of the comments made by the proprietor. Walking distance to mall, comfortable rooms.

Thank you Dido for your response. Not having met you, I find it difficult to comment in return. To recap: We are not a backpacking inn. We are a well established corporate guesthouse with 1. Excellent Value offering best prices in this elite business district 2. Sleep Quality - our mattresses are 5* Legacy Hotel mattresses 3. Our establishment offers... More

I spent two nights at this beautiful guesthouse and wish it was longer! I had the room right in front, with a seperate entrance and it was spacious, well-equipted and peaceful. Breakfast is really good and Anne's hospitality knows no bounds - when I had forgotten my cellphone charger at home and my battery was running low, she left not... More

We stayed at Rosebank Lodge at the beginnig of our tour through Southern Africa and were not disappointed. We prefer private accomodation as we find that we can find out more about an area than we can get from a faceless international chain and this was the case here. The facilities are great and the breakfast set you up for... More

I was a woman travelling alone to Africa and this was where I stayed when i arrived and before I left. I was quite nervous and apprehensive but Anne made me feel welcome, comfortable, at home.

We booked a one week stay at the Rosebank Lodge in spite of the fact that we read the review posted on January 9, 2012. The author of the review had rated the lodge very highly, as had all other guests who had taken the time to write a review. I do remember experiencing some lingering doubts, but that was... More

fantastic location, stones throw from rosebank mall, very safe, the bed, heaven, the only negative was the way the owners treat the black south africans, our taxi driver was made to feel very inferior when he was only doing his job, he was asked to stay outside the gate, we needed to change some money to pay him, coming from...
