I've stayed at Grendon House twice now. Firstly during the 2010 Word Cup when I traveled with a friend and more recently (March 2016) with my girlfriend as part of my second South Africa tour - I love the country, it was everything to offer! What can I say? Grendon House is beautifully designed, from the architecture, to the room... More

A perfect haven in Joburg. Lovely home, fabulous rooms, lots of space to sit and relax. Kim and John are fabulous hosts, providing great food and service, and tips and hints. This is the perfect set up for short stays in Joburg, and will be our 'go-to' location from now on.

I travel a lot for my job and try when I can to stay in an owner managed place where it feels like home but which offers me the same standards as the big international hotels. Grendon House is by far the best place I ever found to combine both. It's located 10 minutes away from the center of the... More

My wife and I stayed at Grendon House on a trip from Malawi. We couldn't have been happier! The house itself is set in beautiful grounds and extremely tastefully decorated. Our room was very comfortable with a great king size bed. Best of all was breakfast, with plenty of fresh fruit and excellent scrambled eggs. Kim was a great host... More

We lucked into staying in this lovely, over-the-top luxurious guesthouse (mansion, really). Kim and John, the owners, were incredible hosts, and we felt we were visiting friends. When we arrived from Madagascar, Kim had arranged dinner reservations for us at their own favorite restaurants, provided transportation, arranged tours, and welcomed us like long-lost family. Anything you want or might possibly... More

I had the pleasure of staying at Grendon House in March of this year. It is simply an oasis in the high-energy environment of Johannesburg. Nestled in a very secure and green neighborhood, Grendon house is a delightful retreat from the hustle and bustle of the city. The house itself is beautifully designed and sits among beautiful gardens. Guest rooms... More
