Rivonia Premier Lodge earns a TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice Award
for its exceptional 2019 / 2020 guest reviews
‘We are honoured and delighted to be rated amongst the top 10% of hotels in the world,’ says the proud owner of Rivonia Premier Lodge, Gerard Marais. ‘The TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice Award has been a great inspiration to me and my staff in this challenging time.’
He attributes this recognition by TripAdvisor to the managers and staff of Rivonia Premier Lodge. ‘Their dedication and commitment to our guests is beyond exceptional . Without them and without our guests, who have become like family, we could never have achieved this success.’
The TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice Award comes after a full year of TripAdvisor guest reviews, submitted before the pandemic struck.
Rivonia Premier Lodge, a charming country-style guest house, with 50 rooms, located in a security area in the quiet residential suburb of Edenburg/Rivonia, offers easy access to all major highways (2km to the N1) and lies within walking distance of the bustling Rivonia Shopping Centre. It has been family-run for 25 years.
‘Our TripAdvisor guest reviews have consistently highlighted the outstanding service, the generous breakfasts, the rambling gardens and the comfortable, upmarket accommodation,’ proudly says Filltah Mawere, Rivonia Premier Lodge’s executive manageress.
‘It has been a difficult year for travel and hospitality,’ says Marais,’ but as things slowly return to normal I am already seeing an upswing with many of the lodge’s regular guests starting to return under strict Covid-19 regulations.’
He points out that all the lodge’s rooms lead out onto rambling gardens and most have their own private patios; thus fresh air and easy access, without passages and elevators, are ideal in this time of Covid.

Jo’burgs top B&B
Outstanding secure accommodation enclosed in beautiful gardens.
Good food, and attentive service from pleasant staff.
To arrive at what I have written requires experience from other establishment around Gauteng….which my wife and I have.
Rivonia offers the best deal we have experienced in our many trips to the Big City.

My stay at Rivonia Premier Lodge was superb. Wonderful service, the friendliest staff that makes sure you feel welcome. Beautiful scenery that makes you forget about being in the city. Definitely the best lodge I’ve been to.

Perfect holiday accommodation
Truly enjoyed our stay in this lovely, charming garden setting self catering unit, comes with a fully equipped kitchen. The units were cleaned daily and they were spotless. They even thought of providing 2 in 1 shampoo and bodywash. The staff were very friendly and warm. Very welcoming. Gardens,braai area and pool were beautifully maintained. We were well looked after. Excellent service. Will absolutely have to return. Felt sad to leave.
