Reviewed 29 March 2016

This lodge is located within walking distance to local shops. Most of the motels in this area have local charm. This one has been around for a long time. Staff goes out of their way to make you feel as comfortable as possible.

I was in Johannesburg on business. The service was amazing from a dedicated team. They provided the most comfortable rooms with DSTV and free wifi. The wifi made it possible for me to keep up with work events at home.

On the whole the Rivonia Bes and Breakfast is a great venue. The room size was spacious with a well appointed separate kitchenette. The one complaint I have is that the picture quality on the tv was appalling. So bad in fact that it is almost impossible to watch. I was out for dinner so it didn't impact my trip...

Without doubt the best B&B I have experienced. From friendly staff to excellent accomodation and the best breakfast in town this venue has all you need. For the business person you have all the facilities you need, for the tourist it is well appointed and conveniently located.
