Having been to Johannesburg in the past I was a little concerned regarding the security of Riverbend as there was little mention of this on the website. However this was the most relaxed I have ever been in Johannesburg. Electric fences and gates being the norm in Johannesburgh I was pleased to see the B&B had both.
We were a family of 5 visiting relatives nearby, and Ollie and Barbara, who have recently taken over the B&B, went out of their way to accommodate us and the staff were excellent.
The gardens were well kept, shady and relaxing, loads of birdlife.
The rooms were clean and spacious, having both fans, heaters or an open fire. There is no safe in the rooms but there was no problem leaving items in the rooms.
We found really good restaurants nearby (on Barbara's recommendation) and had a couple of lovely "homecooked" dinners at Riverbend.
