Value
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.

. Liked · I was very impressed with their attention to detail, my personal request for the room was done with care and at no extra cost. The staff are beyond friendly and accommodating. The room was just perfect, it was clean and tidy and very cozy. Even though we had a storm outside we barely noticed it. The bathroom is spacious and very clean. I love the small shampoo and shower gel bottles. The garden was so beautifully lush and green and it is so tranquil to go sit next to the river. It was truly an amazing experience for my boyfriend and I. We will most definitely be going back very soon. The price was also amazingly affordable and it really felt like we were no where near the city. I would recommend this guesthouse to each and every person i know.

Had a lovely weekend at the lodge. The lodge was exactly as it was shown in the pictures in Booking.com. We enjoyed the river and riverside the most. It was so peaceful and serine. The staff were friendly. The rooms were also spacious enough with the front seats and table.
