We had yet another excellent stay at Graton. It is a wonderful location with garden and in a leafy treed street and has a lovely relaxed atmosphere. Nothing is ever too much trouble for Tony and Graham and Angelina is so cheerful and helpful. We love our visits to Graton, which is around the corner from my cousin's apartment. We... More

After traveling for more than 24 hours and arriving in a large and unknown city it was wonderful to arrive at Graton. Located in a lovely tree filled neighborhood and being situated on a lovely property we were immediately rejuvenated. Tony was a warm and delightful host. Graham was an excellent tour guide. They both made our trip here more... More

We recently returned from a 4 months trip to SA, which we started and ended in Graton's guesthouse. Graham picked us up from the airport, while Tony took care of us in the B&B. Because Johannesburg has such a bad press with crime etc., it was so relaxing to be picked up from the airport and not having to worry... More

Cannot speak highly enough of this place - the hosts are professional, generous welcoming and go out of their way to ensure that all the guests are settled and happy. I have stayed here a few times and would always stay in JHB by choice at this establishment

We spent a couple of nights at Graton and would definitely like to stay there again next time we go to Joburg. The guest house is located in a nice and safe neighborhood. Tony and Graham made us feel like being at home from the minute we arrived. Warmest recommendations from us!

For business or pleasure, the Graton House is really unbeatable! The location is in a very peaceful and secure neighborhood, yet is very near Johannesburg and the airport. The property is absolutely beautiful and wonderfully maintained. My room was perfect, quiet and very spacious. The highlight of the house for me is the covered porch by the pool, here I... More

Graton was in a great location, we walked up the street to shops and restaurants. Graham was a knowledgeable and fun tour guide who knew just what we wanted to see with just a few days in town. The house was relaxing and we felt welcome throughout. Food was great, room and bathroom were clean. Thanks to Tony and Graham... More

We ended our three week trip to South Africa with a stay at Graton Guest House the night before we flew home to the States. We could not have asked for a better place to stay. We booked everything online and Tony greeted us when we drove in as though we were long lost friends. Within a few minutes we... More

We stayed at Graton for 4 days recently, the standard of accommodation, attention to detail, cleanliness and homely atmosphere being the very special. The Graton is decorated in a delightful and tasteful manner and the hosts are highly attentive but without ever being intrusive. Bedrooms are very comfortable, the bathrooms are immaculate and the gardens and pool surrounding are superb,... More
