“Nice B&B”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2013

I stayed for a week. A really nice place. Everything I expected it to be. Ann, the owner/hostess is very pleasant and caring about her guests. Lovely little garden. Room was perfect, staff friendly and accommodating. Highly recommended.

After my 3 night stay here I tried to think of something that was wrong with the place and couldn't come up with anything. An absolute pleasure to stay at. Easy walking distance from the Gautrain. I highly recommend staying here.

They don't have a restaurant or room service but they were happy to order a meal for me from Mr Delivery and they brought it to my room with their own crockery and cutlery. There is a safe in the room and my room had lots of cupboard space. A wide choice of food for breakfast was also available.

We recently stayed at Rosebank Lodge for one night before flying out of Joburg. Our room and bathroom were beautiful, and opened onto a pretty garden and small patio area.
The hotel feels very secure, and is handily located for the Gautrain and the Rosebank mall, where we had dinner.
Anne and Ellie were friendly and very helpful, and we were able to leave our car at the hotel for a few hours after we had checked out, which was much appreciated.
A very good choice for a short stay in Joburg.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

We stayed at Rosebank Lodge for 3 nights at the beginning of our 6 week African adventure, we received a warm and friendly welcome. Our garden room was an oasis of calm in the busy suburb of Rosebank, only a 10 minute safe walk to the Gautrain station and the Rosebank shopping mall.
Great breakfast offering a good variety of fresh fruit, cereals and cooked eggs anyway you like, bacon and mushrooms. Our host was always on hand for advice and help, wether it was booking a local restaurant, ordering a taxi or offering a lift to the station.
A great place to stay in a safe suburb of Johannesberg.

Rosebank Lodge is like a breath of fresh air in the city. While the accommodation has a lovely serene atmosphere, it is located within walking distance of malls, hospitals and restaurants. The rooms are very comfortable (even the standard room) and the breakfasts most satisfying. The attention to detail by Anne makes this establishment stand out above its peers - lovely soft music, sufficient plug points, a wonderful selection of books, and personal attention to her guests. All in all an excellent stay and I will be returning.

If you want to stay in a perfectly safe location (electric wires, 3m high safety fence) just outside of Joburg, this place is for you. And it is just a roughly 10-15 minute walk from the Rosebank Gautrain stop if you're so inclined.

I would definitely recommend Rosebank Lodge to anyone travelling to Joburg.
The location is excellent, specially if you have no car, as it is two-blocks away from Gautrain Park Station. Besides, there is Rosebank Mall quite close by.
Anne was a wonderful hostess and gave us a very warm welcome. She was very helpful in hiring a car from/to the airport, a safari tour and, last but not least, a wonderful restaurant on our last evening in Joburg.
The room was very clean and very well decorated. You can tell Anne pays great attention to details in every single aspect, for example, she had our breakfast tray left in our room the night before our departure to the airport, as we had to wake up and leave well before regular breakfast time.
I would definitely return to Rosebank Lodge.
