Overall, the Rivonia B&B deserves a good to excellent rating. However, we had a room that did not quite match our expectations. On check-in, which took an extraordinary long time, we were allocated a cottage room with a self-catering kitchen, even though I had specifically mentioned at check-in that we did not want a kitchen in the room. The room, nr. 13, has limited light and half the space is occupied by the aforementioned kitchen. Another negative about the room is that on the outside wall there is a heating generator (undoubtedly for the floor heating). This unit is quite noisy and starts running very early in the morning. Rooms 12 and 11 could also be affected by this.
On the positive side, we found this property very safe, the breakfast is great and the landscaping is enjoyable.
Summarizing, we can recommend this place and had we not been allocated nr 13, I am sure we would have rated this property at least a 'very good'.
