Reviewed December 30, 2013

We stayed 3 nights in room number 8 (superior) and 3 nights in room number 6 (executive). We liked the executive room better because it was more comfortable and much warmer. It was freezing the first night, even with the under carpet heating. The second day we asked reception for a radiator, which was put in our room and made it ok to be there. What we thought was uncalled for was a note left in our room with "instructions" on how to keep warm in the South African winter. It was like if they were saying we had exaggerated about the first room being cold the first night. Other than that, it is close to the mall (though it wasn't recommended to do so, we walked to the mall and to the zoo and had no problem) and Gautrain (we went on our own to Pretoria). Staff was nice and helpful, English breakfast was good, location was great.

Dear Stella,

How nice to hear from you.

You last stayed with us at the beginning of August 2012 whilst accompanying your mum and dad, all three of you in one room. I am uncertain why this review arrived 18 months after your stay, or why the dates you mention do not correspond, nor understand your grading criteria.

Our guest's well being is absolutely vital to us! ie this means we go to a lot of trouble to make sure our guests are comfortable in our 5* beds, as well as warm.

Our regular clients from a 5* boutique hotel on the French Riviera feel quite differently to you, and give that particular room a 5* rating.

May the year 2014 be all you and your parents dreamed it would be

Warm regards
Management

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.

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.
