Rivonia B&B is the place to be. I greatly enjoyed spending some time ther with my wife and kidz. The kidz thoroughly enjoyed the experience next time we in Joburg will definitely not go anywhere but B&B. The staff was friendly and they made us feel like we at home. The beds where comfortable with spacious rooms. Breakfast was excellent esp. the coffee.

We have been to Jo'burg many times and stayed at different places but, Rivonia has been the BEST without doubt.
The room was spacious with very comfortable beds. Very nice full kitchenette and bathroom with lots of hot water. All very clean.
Excellent breakfast and very, very pleasant, caring and helpful staff.
All in all we had a wonderful 2 weeks stay at Rivonia and will definitely stay there again. To all traveling South Africa Rivonia would be my best recommendation.
Thank you to the management and staff of Rivonia.
Thank you very, very much for the LOVELY FLOWERS in our room when we got back from the hospital. It was very touching. God bless.

When my wife went to Jo'burg for work we decided that I would join her for a short trip - and as she was already staying at Rivonia (and was very(!) happy with the place), we decided that I would meet her there and we would start our safari there. Consequently when I came down we stayed together at Rivonia 1 night in the beginning of our trip and 1 night at the end of our trip as our flight was out of Jo'burg.

As an experienced business traveller, for me the 3 basics are
- Comfortable Bed
- Hot Shower
- Good breakfast
and Rivonia delivers on all 3 accounts:
- The bed is very comfortable - really what you need after a long flight
- The bathroom (as the rest of the room) are spacious, clean - and there is lot's of hot water
- The breakfast is very nice - hot porridge, fresh fruit, cooked breakfast, toast, fresh juice etc.

When you add to this that all of the staff are really friendly and helpful, a good price for the room - and the fact that it was simply "nice" to be there, I have no reservations in giving Rivonia my best recommendations.

In particular I would say that if you are going to southern Africa for a longer trip, Rivonia seems to me to be the perfect place to "decompress"/"re-compress" before and after your trip - i.e. using Rivonia as a step between your daily life (and Jo'Burg airport) and your safari experience.

We certainly enjoyed staying here, getting ready for the Safari tour - and it was equally nice to come back here, have a day in Jo'burg, before going back to our daily grind.

So glad you liked our place. Our B&B is a good place to start and finish a trip to southern Africa. We are always all ears when our guests return from Safari; they have so many exciting stories to tell.

From check-in to departure, every member of staff treated me as I were a guest in their own home. Wonderful rooms and facilities. World class breakfast, but best of all was the friendly efficiency of the staff. Great position to do business calls from.
