I'll keep this uncharacteristically short because it's all been said. A fantastic stay.
-Grounds are lovely; pool, bird feeders, gardens…
-Rooms are small (I had a standard) but well appointed. I wasn't sure why so many people commented on the comfort of the beds, but yes, the beds are amazing. I don't know why… I even discussed it with the manager. Beyond a comfortable mattress, the quality of the cotton on the sheets is outstanding. I wanted to take the bed home with me. The only negative was that I couldn't get internet in my room, though it was fine elsewhere.
-Staff: extremely friendly and accommodating. I chose to stay here because a reviewer said they had been allowed a late check-out with no problem. Mine was extremely late, and they couldn't have been more helpful. The manager even gave me a lift in her car because I was stranded without cash. It's the little extra things…
I had desperately tried to change by flight to avoid staying in Joburg on my way back to NAmerica from Cape Town, but in the end I'm glad I wasn't able to. The day I spent lounging in Rivonia was the perfect way-station in a gruelling trip home. Full marks.
