We stayed here last year on our way to Malawi with our 4 kids. Been meaning to post a review about how good it was, only just got round to it. What a fab place. It feels so relaxed and chilled out, and the staff are soooo welcoming and will go out of their way to help. Nothing was too much trouble. And the food was brilliant, the breakfasts are the best I've had anywhere in the world. If you're staying for the evening, you MUST have dinner there too, lovely homecooked food.

It was so good we booked on our return through Joburg 3 months later - the staff were so welcoming on our return, we were greeted with "welcome home" and it truely felt like it. They even threw in some upgraded rooms!

Could not have wished for more.

I stay for three nights and I wish to compliment the staff on their friendliness and professionalism in dealing with myself .
The rooms are clean and airy and offers the traveler all the necessities required for a relax and comfortable environment.The garden setting is beautiful and relaxing after a hard days work.Fellila arranged that I use the lounge area to conduct some business interviews which I thought was more than adequate and she went out of her way to ensure that the B&B met my requirements
Will definitely return and recommend this establishment to friends and business associates.

My husband and I travel and stay over in Jhb very often. We choose this establishment over others as it offers privacy, a rural atmosphere at the same time as being super efficient and friendly. The rooms are quite spacious and offer all the smaller details that make the stay over so much easier and more comfortable. Breakfast is fun, social and delicious too. We are back there at the end of this month!

Room Tip: Just describe your needs to the receptionist and they will see that they are met.

After flying into Johannesburg we stayed at the Rivonia B&B for two days before driving to Kruger National Park, and we stayed one additional night on the way back.

Having read about potential safety concerns in Johannesburg, the security of our surroundings was of interest to us. Although the inn is inside a boomed security area (which seems quite common in Johannesburg) we always drove through with just a wave at the guard on duty, so the security value of the boom seemed a little moot. However, the inn itself has a large and very high security gate and its own gate staff, which provided us with more assurance. Overall, it's important to note that during our three nights at the Rivonia B&B we felt completely safe.

We found the staff to be extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms were quiet and comfortable and clean, and came with a well-stocked mini-fridge and snacks, and each had a small kitchen area for those wanting to provide their own food.

Glad to hear from you. Many thanks for writing in. We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay with us and that you felt safe & secure. We do hope to see you again. The guards at the boom gate on 10th Ave., and all the cars passing through, are monitored by camera. The company who provides the security service at the boom has been notified of complaints coming through and steps have been taken to rectify the situation. Best regards. Jill & Gerard & the whole Rivonia B&B team.
