This is a very good B&B, way above many. I especially liked the spacious bright rooms with many amenities.The breakfast was also good. Its kind of hidden though, so for me the location was not the best. Keep up the good standard on your services.

I got to Rivonia B&B very late in the evening. The security personnel was expecting me. I was escorted to room and felt very safe. Breakfast the next morning was delicious with friendly staff. Check out was quick and effective. I will return to Rivonia B&B and recommend it to my friends and colleagues.

An oasis in the busy heart of Rivonia, an easy drive to Sandton City. The only down side was the traffic chaos on Rivonia Road when the traffic lights were out of order.

We had a good stay. Breakfast was great. Services were exemplary. Hotel was beautiful. Staff was extremely cooperative and friendly. Location was beautiful. It was far from shopping malls and without own transport it was difficult place. But for those people who would have their own transport this is a excellent place
