Neat.  Efficient.  Well-run.  Attention-to-detail.  These are probably the main reasons why Rivonia B&B won the 2009 AA Accommodation Award - an award  based on the latest guest reviews and customer satisfaction.  Add a lot of great service and a prime position, and it's not surprising that Rivonia B&B is considered by many as one of the best accommodation establishments in Johannesburg.

The lodge is large and sprawling ... The garden is big (6000sq.m) and lots of birds are attracted to the special feeding tables.  It's really something to watch each morning and evening as the birds gather to start or round off their busy days. 

Just as the lodge is the perfect place for people to begin and end their days.  It's in a quiet and leafy cul-de-sac, away from the traffic and mayhem, yet it's in the heart of Sandton - wish easy access to most of what you're looking for - whether for business or leisure or pleasure.  And it's well-secured behind security fences and remote-controlled electric gates.
