I enjoyed the stay at Sand River compared to most guest houses I have been before. The decor is modern and perfectly meets my requirements. The rooms are new and the bedding is very clean. The surroundings are well manicured and provides a degree of relaxation. Breakfast is small but adequate for a short visit.

Beautiful Guest House with kind and caring staff that goes the extra mile. Breakfast was amazing and our overall stay was excellent. Thank you for making our stay such a wonderful experience.

I love the staff at Sandriver, everyone is very welcoming and helpful. I only stay at Sandriver Guest Lodge each time I travel to JHB for business. The food is super yummy and the beds are very comfortable.

We spent 2 days at Sand river guesthouse (conference venue not staying over). Really lovely people. Nice venue with good facilities. Very reasonable. While we didn't sleep over, the rooms looked really nice and seemed to be excellent value. We highly recommend it for a company breakaway...feels like you are far out of town, but really in the middle of...

I have stayed at Sand River many times and have always loved it. But the newly built additional rooms and swimming pool are fantastic. Set in a beautiful and tranquil garden on the Sand River, this spot is close to vibey Rivonia and Sandton is just a few minutes away. The rooms are spacious and tastefully decorated. The patio, pool...

Full accolades to Ruth and Margaret for friendly, efficient, great service. Such a central location, good security, close to everything yet you would think you are out in the tanquil countryside. Clean, spacious and a delicious breakfast.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Stunning guesthouse conveniently located in Rivonia, Sandton. 6 rooms on the river property and 2 self-catering cottages 1 block away. Rivonia Valley is a security suburb and safety is paramount. It's hard to believe you are in a big city when absorbing the sounds of the local bird life whilst appreciating the river view. Wireless internet, full breakfasts, conference room (10), under-carpet heating in winter and air-conditioners in summer. 7km from the Sandton Convention Centre and 10km from Monte Casino. Plenty of restaurants in the area. ... more   less
