“Guaranteed to fall in love with this great new find...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2008

I usually stay at the Intercon or Sandton Sun, but was persuaded by the work colleague who would pick me up from the hotel that I'd save him considerable traffic grief if I stayed at the Rivonia B & B. I'm so glad that I did - it's an absolute gem, and at around 25% of my usual hotel cost! My room (31) was large comfortably furnished and apparently designed for long stay guests or those that wished to partially self cater, as it had a microwave oven and a full set of crockery/glasses in addition to the usual facilities. I slept as if drugged in the huge, very comfortable bed, but the altitude (Johannesburg is around 1700m ASL) might have contributed. Breakfast, which is included in the rate, is sumptuous, but the only meal served on the premises. The hotel has a decent sized pool - too cold during my visit, but it was a pleasure to watch and listen to the (to me) exotic wild birds forage on the adjacent lawn, the gardens and trees.

Outstanding restaurants such as Brown's and Harrison's, and a couple of dozen other are located within a km or so. A map in the room helpfully lists them and their location. Reception can arrange taxis and tours and are outstandingly helpful. I will certainly return.

  • Liked — location, comfort of the room, breakfast, the polite efficiency and helpfulness of the staff
  • Disliked — Absolutely nothing to dislike nor, in the three days I stayed, anything to criticize
  • Stayed July 2008, traveled on business
