We had a very good overnight stay before a safari tour. The hotel is spotlessly clean, rooms are smallish, but comfortable, quite OK for one night. Beds are on the hard side but still comfortable. Bathroom area though conveniently arranged, does not allow much privacy. Wifi free, fast, in the rooms. Service is extremely friendly. Location of the hotel was...

Stayed for 2 nights before joining a safari tour. The hotel may be rated 1*, but the service is a full 4*. Friendly, helpful staff, clean modern rooms and free fast WiFi help the Road Lodge punch above its weight. There is a shopping/dining mall just a few minutes walk away and the on site facilities include vending machines, a...

Our family spent the night in this hotel as we had tickets to a show at Monte Casino. It was very convenient and perfect for what we needed for the night. Safe parking made it even better as our cars were packed full of possessions as we were moving to the Eastern Cape from Johannesburg. The staff were very friendly...

We were required to stay for one night at Road Lodge Rivonia before starting a tour with a South African company. There's no way I'd stay there otherwise because there are plenty of more attractive options. Our dingy upstairs rooms were small and with very basic facilities. The bathroom design was awkward. The thin pillows were disgustingly filthy and unhygienic....

This place is quiet and nice...and very close to most of the nice shopping places. I have stayed there for a week when I went there for a training in Johannesburg. The price is very cheap and breakfast is paid for separately, no kettle or fridges in the room but the rooms are very nice and clean.

We stayed for one night at the Road Lodge Rivonia before starting our trip through Botswana. All in all it was quite a good experience, the beds are a bit unconfortable and the walls rather thin but after roughly 20 hours of travelling not much to worry about. Staff was very helpful and supportive. Breakfast was not included in our...

This was the cheapest lodge in Rivonia and I would definitely return! Although we waited quite a bit before we were checked in. The room was tidy, we had enough hot water to shower and the breakfast selection was wonderful! There were plenty of different food items to choose from daily. The only annoying thing was the system at the...

Value for money maybe but terribly short on amenities. No Kettle in the room, staff although friendly but quite non attentive. Definitely not for guests with big bags no lifts. Breakfast was pretty ordinary, I would rather spend a few bucks more.
