The location is very central and easy access to all major roads. Shopping center within walking distance from guest house. Rooms very convenient and well thought through. Everything that you will require for your stay is available international plugs included.Breakfast more than enough to choose from, Dinner menu is great. Beautiful outdoor gardens, and peaceful to sit and relax in.

We would not go anywhere else unless we had to. Location, gardens, rooms, staff and breakfasts are all really great. This has become our home from home when we visit Johannesburg and we are never disappointed. Simply lovely!

Fillitah and Gerard are wonderful hosts. Fillitah arranged a tour of Soweto and Jhb for the family. Breakfast is fantastic. Rooms are very nice and very clean. All staff are friendly. Heated floors are a nice treat as well...thanks for a lovely stay. We will always stay here when in SA for a holiday. Thanks to all the staff involved.

My wife and I had the pleasure of spending a day at this B&B. What a nice, quite an cosy place to enjoy some time away from the noise of the city. You know a B&B works if you arrive 3 hours before book in and they still get your room ready while you have some koffee en kookies. Rooms...

Thank you for calling Rivonia B&B a 'cosy' place. It is exactly how we would want to describe it. In the city, but not of the city. We would love you to visit us again soon. Gerard promises to be at the ready to serve you a scrumptious breakfast. Sincerely. Gerard & Jill Marais & the Rivonia B&B team.

Weekend in Joburg with friends. Choice of accommodation was no brainer. As usual the staff at Rivonia were so friendly and understanding. They allowed me to book over the phone without a credit card.
