“Liked the location and the service”
Reviewed 10 May 2013

We stayed 3 nights at Rosebank Lodge Guest House. We enjoyed our stay in the room closest to the pool. And the location was great, as it was easy to access major roads in the area.

I really can't add much to what other reviewers have said. We had a rent-a-car, so when we arrived we were wondering where we were going to park. When we buzzed the front desk upon arrival, they opened up one of the garage doors, so we could park inside their property. After that, we had a remote garage door opener that we could use ourselves. Each garage door accommodates 2 cars, and there was a tree on the street (for our garage door) that you had to be careful about when entering or exiting, but it wasn't a problem.

We enjoyed the pool, as it was summertime. Each morning, we had a good breakfast, with made to order eggs.

And we were very impressed with all the information that Anne and Robyn provided for us. They always came up with suggestions on places to go and things to do. They also provided maps, and/or specific directions for getting to whatever was our target.

We would stay here again.

We had a lovely stay here. The lodge is conveniently located to the Gautrain and the huge Rosebank Mall complex. It's an easy walk to good shopping and great restaurants. Staying at the lodge feels more like being a guest in someone's home than staying in a hotel. The breakfast was delicious and made to order. They keep the rooms stocked with biscotti, coffee, and tea, and there is an honor fridge stocked with all kinds of other beverages. You can also just hang out in the living room and chat with other guests. Our first night we were exhausted and they helped us order in some food. If we ever manage to make it to Johannesburg again we will definitely stay here again.

The ambiance of the B&B is delightful and restful. The staff are charming and the rooms immaculate. Breakfast is healthy and appetizing with lots of choice. The quiet garden, sporting a pool, oozes with an invitation to sit and enjoy it's beauty while you unwind at close of day. The proximity to Rosebank's world class shopping Mall, restaurants and entertainment and easy walk to the Guatrain station make this an easy first choice for a stay in Johannesburg. I'll definitely stay there again and highly recommend it.

Within easy walking distance of the Rosebank Shopping Mall, nice clean and secure accommodation, good food and very helpful staff who went out of their way to ensure our stay was memorable for all the right reasons.

Could not have expected more.

Clean, comfortable rooms. Good, personal breakfast. Convenient location. All topped off by the thoughtful, caring attitude of the staff!
the staff recommended using the services of the Rose taxi service-never have i experienced more gentlemanly, slow taxi drivers.

If you are looking for the comfort of a business hotel with the ambiance and the atmosphere of a small genuine South African B&B in a safe and pleasant neighbourhood, stay here.

Location is excellent. 5 minutes walk to the Rosebank Mall with many nice shops and eateries and the African Craft Market. Also near the motorway which connects CBD with Sandton, the northern suburbs and Pretoria. The bigger and more luxurious Sandton City Mall and Nelson Mandela Square in Sandton are only a couple of minutes drive away (just driving up north Oxford Road) or a singe stop on the Gautrain, which station is a 5 minutes walk away.

The guest house is very intimate, yet the rooms have all the amenities of a business hotel while having a stylish urban touch. The owner and the staff are very friendly and helpful. The beds are super comfortable, certainly the best bed I have stayed in this price range! Free WiFi and good breakfast.

I would not hesitate to recommend this B&B to anybody going to Joburg.

Warm, welcoming, safe place to stay, with pretty gardens and quiet, restful rooms. The breakfasts are exceptional. The facility is just minutes' walk from the impressive Rosebank Mall and the Gautrain station.
Anne (the owner) runs an efficient staff, who cater to guests' every need.

Room Tip: This is a small place with only eight rooms; they're all very well located.
