Graton Guest House - Johannesburg, South Africa


Highly-recommended accommodation offering 5-star hospitality at 3-star rates

The reviews on Trip Adviser (and in our own Vistors' Book) are in recognition of the reputation that Graton has achieved since opening in 1997, a philosophy based on offering value-for-money - 5-star hospitality at 3-star rates. So whether you're coming to Joburg simply to do some shopping, here on business or simply using Jozi as a jump-off point on  your tour of SA you'll find Graton Guest House tucked away in a quiet, tree-lined cul-de-sac in one of Greater Johannesburg's well-established, northern suburbs.  Our Orchards Guest House is convenient as we really are centrally-situated - the OR Tambo Airport is less than 30 minutes off-peak driving time away, with the Joburg CBD 15, Rosebank 10 and Sandton 20 minutes away.  Just a quick stroll will take you to Norwood Mall for shopping or into Norwood's Grant Avenue which has plenty of restaurants.
