Reston, Virginia
Reviewed yesterday NEW

I recently stayed at Rivonia B&B at the conclusion of a 3+ week series of safaris in southern Africa. After a fairly rigorous schedule on tour, I really appreciated the oasis-like setting of Rivonia B&B. It was beautiful and relaxing, with lovely gardens and many exotic (to me) birds visiting the several bird feeders around the property. The staff was...

A great place to stay with a dedicated and excellent team who assisted me with my various meetings I had to attend. A safe, green haven and the breakfast selection was very good. I also dined one evening and the steak was terrific!

With all its plant life and natural setting, staying at Rivonia BB was the most relaxing part of our trip to Joburg. The room was spacious, clean, and had a kitchenette with all the essentials. The breakfast was excellent and you ordered your food rather than a buffet, which I prefer since it's made fresh. The highlight is the staff...

This is one of those rare B & B experiences that leaves you feeling rested and relaxed. Rooms are well equipped, set in a quiet garden and leave you wanting for nothing. Dinners and breakfasts are excellent and the friendly staff are a pleasure to deal with. Our company execs use this as a base on weekly and bi-weekly trips...

Rivonia B&B was not what I was expecting. I expected a room attached to a private residence and perhaps a good hearty home cooked breakfast. I got a whole whole lot more. This is more like a boutique hotel in a resort type setting with apartment style rooms scattered all around the pretty gardens. The staff were fantastic - very...

Lovely rooms in a pretty, calming environment. attentive staff and great breakfast. I haven't slept so well for a long time whilst travelling. Really nice, cooling swimming pool. Slightly tricky to find if you don't know the area but a lovely setting once found.Highly recommended.

The location is great, steeped away from busy streets. The grounds are lovely and inspire calmness. Customer service is the best I've ever received and Fillitah is very knowledgeable about the area, she can easily recommend sites to visit in the area.
