Graton Hose and its proprietor, Graham is a class act. I came to South Africa to visit long lost relatives and to see the country. Graham designed our trip and arranged everything so smoothly. As Americans, all we had to worry about was driving on the wrong side of the road. Beautiful guest house, and Frahsm is a knowledgeable and... More

Starting our 2014 South Africa trip we arrived in Graton Guesthouse after our long flight from Europe. We were welcomed by Mrs. Matapelo (Angelina), the lady of the house. Her lovely, motherly even, friendliness struck us immediately and if it were not for the Guesthouse alone, we would certainly come back for Mrs. Matapelo. But owner Graham is also a... More

A one stop shop from meeting you at the airport to delivering you back for to the airport for the next leg of your journey with a customised itinerary in between that provides great insight into life in Joburg. Tony and Graham are great hosts and a provide a home-from-home experience. Highly recommended.

For a youthful 50 ish couple a little worried about hitting Joburg this worked out well. We were well looked after and had a great room breakfast and all our questions answered. Good location for airport too.

My partner and I stayed at Graton for two nights in June, and for a further night in July with Graham taking us to the airport the next day. Both Tony and Graham made us feel completely welcome and it was really like staying with friends. Graham also organised an itinerary for our stay in South Africa that took into... More

We stayed at Graton Guesthouse at the end of our SA trip for 1 night. Especially Graham (as guide) was very friendly and helpful (Soweto tour is absolutely recommended). The rest of the accomodation is fine for 1-3 nights, for a longer stay I rather would go for something else as the rooms are a bit old, e.g.carpets in the... More

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
