The Rosebank Lodge Guest House was our home away from home while traveling in South Africa during the World Cup 2010. Great accomodations located near resteraunts, shopping and attractions. Anne made us feel so comfortable, and her personal attention was amazing. The breakfast was cooked to order and the staff was very attentive. I would highly recommend Rosebank for anyone... More

we were stopping at johannesburg at the end of our south africa trip and decided to book the guesthouse instead of a hotel.. we found the room quite small and facilities below our expectations, but it was manageable.. it is 15-20min walk from the rosebank mall so no shortage of food & shopping options.. but it is advisable not to...

This review is misdirected. We are a 5 minute walk from the Rosebank Mall. Secondly we have not had Indian visitors this year. We are not a Backpacking Inn.

We spent 5 nights at Rosebank Lodge as we were in Johannesburg for a family wedding. We were so impressed with the personal service we received from Anne and her staff. She took such good care of us while we were there; we hated to leave. The breakfast food that was available each day was very plentiful and delicious with... More

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.

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
