Am a business person, my office clearly asked on the phone if the place had a good wi-fi. We were told it had but the wi-fi is very very poor... pity they have no respect for people that need to work a few hours in the evening. Lady at reception very unfriendly, they have 50 rooms so they think they... More

Overall, this is a nice place with excellent breakfasts and friendly staff. The location is a fairly convenient near the highway and 15 mins to Sandton. That said, we were on our honeymoon and were given room 40 near the pool...this ended up being very disappointing (especially as we look at photos of what other rooms are like). The room... More

We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience you suffered during your stay. In good faith our front office upgraded you to a more spacious room with a king-size bed. Online, a smaller room with double bed was booked. Room 40 has been very popular with our business visitors due to its proximity to the office, parking and dining area. This room... More

People are really nice here. Pool is nice. You can cook for yourself. All the materials are provided. And we got an early flight to catch. They arranged everything for us. Overall, this is a wonderful place to stay.

When i got to South Africa Airport, Rivonia B&B had already made arrangements for transport to their location. That was a plus which i really appreciated. Afterwards, i was conveyed to and fro my working place. The internet facility was excellent and the services rendered were five star. The workers always wear beautiful smiles to start your day.

We are excited when someone rates our establishment 'Paradise'. Our main aim is to create a special experience for our guests and provide a haven where they feel cared for in a foreign country or city. 'Happy smiles,' I think sums up the attitude of the Rivonia B&B staff. Once again, thank you for taking the time to write in.... More

Whenever I travel to SA I stay in B&Bs. There is a personal attention and friendliness in B&Bs that you don't usually find in hotels. I have to say my stay at Rivonia is the best I have had so far. The people were so friendly and helpful. The rooms are spacious and kept clean. It's easy to get anything... More

Thank you for your kind words. Such positive remarks always motivate us to try even harder.

Our first impression of Rivonia B&B was the serene garden setting. It did not feel we were in large city. The room was comfortable and the people at the desk very helpful.
