Disappointing - another hotel room that failed to live up to its 4* accreditation. It had all that was required (save for a missing kettle) but failed in the attention to detail (light bulbs, lack of milk for coffee, replenishment milk the next day overllooked) And the breakfast was ordinary - nothing special and generally prepared for mass consumption. I... More

I stayed here for a couple of nights when a friend of mine was visiting me in South Africa. Sandton Lodge Rivonia is peaceful and quiet but still close to the vibrant city of Johannesburg. The staff is very friendly and the rooms are clean and cozy. Unfortunately the weather was not at its best during the time of our... More

My first room that i was given was very noisy from the street traffic, but i spoke to the Manager and they moved my immediately to a room that i thoroughly enjoyed.

I spend one night here earlier this week. I fly from Cape Town to attend a conference in Rivonia and selected this hotel because it was an easy 5 minute drive from the conference venue (one doesn't want to have to drive in the traffic in Johannesburg in the morning!). The hotel served the purpose in terms of my convenience... More

A tastefully decorated hotel in an excellent location. The gardens are pretty and well maintained. However, the staff are not friendly and don't seem to care about the guests and their needs. They either need a lot more training or a change in attitude. There was no manager on duty the whole weekend... We had to shout to find someone... More

Stayed in this hotel with my husband for 3 days of vacation in May 2015. The staff was very helpful, and I found the service very good. All our requests were managed perfectly and quickly. The location is good, a quiet place and beautiful garden. There are two swimming pools, the rooms have proper air conditioning and heating, and most... More

The Lodge makes you think of a poorly managed school hostel, silly steps up to rooms that got lost in the 80's. Shady guests that are not that of an upmarket establishment. Asked my travel agent to blacklist for corporate travel.

Stayed at the lodge for two weeks while on business. It was a breadth of fresh air from the usual hotels. Spacious, wifi and also had a self catering unit. The breakfasts were lovely although it could have done with some variation. I was surprised by the standard of the dinner, I thoroughly enjoyed every meal I had. The staff... More

Fantastic venue for conferencing and business meetings. Facilities up to standard and effort is made to make everything going as smooth as possible. Love the quality of the coffee and snacks. Undecided whether I would actually use this venue for accommodation for more than one night. I am of the opinion that they are more geared for day conferences.
