The room was clean and small but suited the purpose. Offerings are basic with no kettle and hairdryer on request. It is located at a convenient position with plenty of shops and restaurants a short drive away. No Supper or lunch service is available at the hotel. There is secure parking available. I unfortunately was unable to get breakfast at... More

I stayed at this budget lodge for two nights. Checking in and out was a breeze. Staff was friendly and helpful although there was no-one to help me with my luggage. Room was quite small but then again I wasn't expecting anything more for the price I paid. It was relatively clean as was the linen. The location of my... More

The room was exactly as advertised. It was clean and in a good location for visitors to Sandtona dn the northern Johannesburg suburbs. Easy freeway access. Got wifi connection. I had a room facing Rivonia Road which can be a little noisy in the morning but it did not bother me. There is a kettle in the room but no... More

Have been a loyal customer to this group for many years. That is now over. Have just had to endure an hour of frustration to get filthy bed linen changed. If cleanliness is important to you then I suggest stay away from this hovel. From the bed to the toilet to the shower is just filthy. I doubt the Linen... More

This Hotel was superb. I love it so much cos it was just by the road side. Ease of movement to different parts of Joburg. The breakfast was OK. The room was so spacious and neat. The staff were very hospitable and welcoming.

We had a very good overnight stay before a safari tour. The hotel is spotlessly clean, rooms are smallish, but comfortable, quite OK for one night. Beds are on the hard side but still comfortable. Bathroom area though conveniently arranged, does not allow much privacy. Wifi free, fast, in the rooms. Service is extremely friendly. Location of the hotel was... More

Stayed for 2 nights before joining a safari tour. The hotel may be rated 1*, but the service is a full 4*. Friendly, helpful staff, clean modern rooms and free fast WiFi help the Road Lodge punch above its weight. There is a shopping/dining mall just a few minutes walk away and the on site facilities include vending machines, a... More

Our family spent the night in this hotel as we had tickets to a show at Monte Casino. It was very convenient and perfect for what we needed for the night. Safe parking made it even better as our cars were packed full of possessions as we were moving to the Eastern Cape from Johannesburg. The staff were very friendly... More

We were required to stay for one night at Road Lodge Rivonia before starting a tour with a South African company. There's no way I'd stay there otherwise because there are plenty of more attractive options. Our dingy upstairs rooms were small and with very basic facilities. The bathroom design was awkward. The thin pillows were disgustingly filthy and unhygienic.... More
