Perfect Location, clean and with all you need. Beiing in a big City, feeling like you are on the country side is relaxing after a whole day work. Clean and nice garden. Breakfast perfect and staff very friendly.

Clean, friendly bed and breakfast in a quiet residential area about 20 minutes outside of Sandton. Customer service was good and I was made to feel welcome immediately upon arrival. Rooms are clean but, I did find that the ac and fans were quite noisy and did make it hard to sleep well.

Our company has a contract with Rivonia and over the years all our new recruits stay there during their training and whenever anyone is required to be in jHB. It's hard to believe this place is in the center of bustling Rivonia cvs as it's an oasis. The staff are really friendly and they know all of us by name....

We stayed in Rivonia B&B after a 2 week Safari trip for some R&R and to see some of Johannesburg before leaving. It was amazing. Beautifully appointed unit, stunning grounds & very welcoming staff. Having a huge delicious spread at breakfast sitting watching all the birds in the garden was so relaxing. The pool was lovely & the dinners we...

I liked the most the welcoming that we received, humanity within your staff members which was showed through the service with the smile that one could see that it was coming from the heart of each individual. Clean premises and rooms. Management that showed interest in serving the clients at all times

It is a very nice and quiet place to stay. The staff was very friendly. Breakfast is very good near the garden. We had our dinner at Browns and this was also very good. We would take the same hotel again.

This is our home from home when we visit Johannesburg and although we have had to stay at a number of other places over the last couple of years, we haven't found anywhere that offers what Rivonia B & B does. One can see why it is so popular and busy all the time.
