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. She more than exceeded my expectations, arranging my transport to and from the airport (thanks to Darrell - my excellent driver), making recommendations, booking... More

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...

We chose this based on trip advisor and were not disappointed. The owner, Anne was there but her husband had some surgery so Margie took over the running. She was so helpful, new to the job, but what she couldn't answer she made a point to find out. I got help with the internet acesss, she made dinner reservations and... More

I stayed here for 3 non-consecutive nights in December and it was the perfect stay to help me start my travels in South Africa. I was apprehensive about traveling solo and walking around the neighborhood but I was pleasantly surprised with how safe it was, especially walking through the patrolled streets to Rosebank Mall. Location, room size, breakfast and cleanliness... More

Our two day stay could not have been better and will book again on our next visit to Johannesburg. We could not have hoped for a better host who went out of her way to be helpful even though we arrived at 9am when our book in time was midday. The breakfast was so good and large we did not... More

One of the best experiences I've had while travelling. Very friendly staff and great service, and in a very nice and pretty location where you can feel safe. The room I had was spacious and well furnished, with a very comfy bed. Instead of a minibar there's a big fridge in the central living room, with a small ledger to... More

We stayed in the Rosebank Lodge Guest House. The property is really beautiful with a pool and a very nice room. The room was very modern and well equiped. The room and bathroom are nice and spacious.
