Sand River Guest House
Ranked #4 of 10 Rivonia B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 30 June 2010

My friends and I were here for the World Cup, and were witness to some award-winning hospitality by Bev, Margaret and her team. They were accomodating, helpful and extremely friendly.

The guest house itself is beautiful. Very often, photos can disguise what might be a somewhat disappointingly ordinary residence, but in this case, we felt Sand River was a real treat, complete with a genuine wood fireplace.

Some travellers might find some of the standard (non-courtyard, I think?) rooms on the small side, but overall I myself found it comfortable enough, and the underfloor heating and heated blankets more than made up for it.

While we were here in winter, I suspect Sand River Guest House will be absolutely gorgeous in the summer.

The only possible downside is the slightly spotty Wi-Fi, but don't let that stop you from staying at Sand River as the service, hospitality and indeed everything else more than makes up for it!

Staying at Sand River Guest House is always such a pleasure. The rooms are spotless, spacious and open onto a wonderful garden and river area where one can quite easily forget this is the centre of Sandton. Margaret and her team provide brilliant service and no request is a problem. Friendly touches such as the honesty bar make you feel quite at home, and make sure to leave enough time to enjoy the breakfast in the morning!
