“Excellent management, security and service!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2014

As a Management Consultant I have been staying at various Guest Houses and Hotels in South Africa and abroad over the past three years. I can honestly say that Rosebank Lodge with its excellent management and friendly staff is my preferred home away from home. It is perfectly located in Rosebank and their focus on security makes you feel safe. Every evening when I return to Rosebank Lodge after a long day at the office I am greeted with a friendly smile and a spotless room. I can recommend Rosebank Lodge to all business travellers and families (my wife and son have joined me at Rosebank Lodge for special weekends with a similar positive experience).

We stayed 2 nights en route back to Cape Town from an overseas holiday.
The rooms are tastefully furnished with comfy beds, free WIFI and a flat screen TV with DSTV. Our family of 3 was accommodated in 2 adjacent rooms in a small corridor of only 3 rooms which was perfect. I really don't think all 3 of us would have fitted into 1 room as they are quite small. There is underfloor heating which was necessary in the cold winter temperatures and we could have done with electric blankets on both sides of the double bed. I didn't notice any air conditioning for summer. Breakfast was varied and delicious.
The location of this guesthouse is very convenient to Rosebank shops and the Gautrain station - about a 15-20 min walk. If you have lots of luggage you may want to consider asking the guesthouse to book a cab as the route feels longer with luggage! Without luggage it is an easy walk.
We were treated kindly and efficiently and they happily gave us a late checkout on our last morning as I wasn't feeling well.

Dear Stone family,

Thank you for your lovely reivew.

What a pleasure it was to have you stay with us. We are delighted we were able to assist you with an extra Classic room (for one person only) at such a reduced rate for your son.
Although only 500metres from the Mall and Rosebank Gautrain station, with smaller persons alongside, it probably takes a bit longer to reach destinations.

We were sad you were not feeling so well but happy we were able to give you a late check out and trust you will soon return to excellent health.

Unfortunately we were quite disappointed not with the place or the area itself but with the way we were greated which was very rude as soon as we entered the premises. They have tried to make us feel better after that but thre was no going back I'm afraid. This is not a place I would recommend.

As a high standard corporate guesthouse with outstanding staff, we believe these persons must be referring to the backpacking inn of the same name down the road.

The lodge is located in a quiet leafy street in a "good" part of Johannesburg. There is good security in the streets with resident patrols.

The accommodation is excellent. The most comfortable bed and pillows I have ever used. The staff are friendly and helpful. The room is large and well equipped. NOTE that in Winter it can be cold at night, even with the under floor heating!. An in-room additional heater would be in order.

Breakfasts are adequate. The muffins are to die for! Nothing is too much trouble. I'll stay again when I go back to Johannesburg ...

The Rosebank Lodge is an ideal place to stay in Johannesburg. We were upgraded to the Executive Room which was large and comfortable. The owner went out of her way to be helpful and even gave us a complimentary breakfast managed to get us into our room by 10:00am which was greatly appreciated after a long overnight flight. You can safely walk to the Gautrain and a variety of good restaurants in the Rosebank Mall. The garden is exceptionally pretty. We took advantage of the airport pick up which made getting there a breeze. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: The Executive Room was luxurious, with a lovely view on the garden and pool.
