Gigi and Liza were absolutely accomadation and very flexible. I went to breakfast 30 minutes early on my 1st day and everything was still ready. The guest house itself was really lovely and spotless and the wifi was really fast and always available...that was my favorite part.The guest house was centrally located with a shopping centre nearby which made my stay more enjoyable.

The guest house is definitely the best that I have stayed at to date and I do a lot of travelling.
The owners are the most warm and welcome people you will ever meet.
They are hands on with the service that they provide from personally serving you breakfast in the morning to having a 24hr line that you can call if you need anything.
Above all I loved how they treated and worked together with the staff that worked for them.

We just can say: Dunton Guesthouse is the perfect place to stay! We dropped in by mistake as with our other accommodation something went wrong, but at the end it was the best that could happen to us.
Iris and Gigi are wonderful hosts - always available for your needs - and they always taking care personally for the well-being of their guests.
The location of the guesthouse is in a absolute safe area, the connection to highway is absolut easy.
The room was really big, spotless clean and we did not miss anything. Specially to mention is the lovely garden. It’s a paradise!
All I can say: Dunton Guesthouse will be our “first adress” in JNB (we are regularly there) and can highly recommend it to you.

This was a lovely place to base ourselves for a few days. The owners are so helpful and really make you feel like you are at home.

The rooms are spacious and well appointed. They are clean and come with AC, wifi and TV. The meals are delicious and, when the Guest House isn't busy, meals can be served in other places (ate by the pool!)

The garden is a lovely place for an evening cocktail, cool breezes and lush trees. A great place to wind-down after a busy day.

We experienced a wonderful stay at Dunton Guest House. We arrived late after a long drive from Timbavati with our family, which exist of 15 people, youngest 3 months and oldest 74 years old. The owner was very thoughtful to switch a room to the ground floor for the less mobile people. In no time everyone was checked-in and settled in a beautiful rooms. The rooms are very comfortable and clean. The owner and wife are lovely and friendly people. The garden with pool is beautiful, well-maintained with seats to sit and enjoy.

My husband and I prefer to stay in intimate, cozy and private locations when we travel. If you are looking for a welcoming, intimate place to stay in the hustle and bustle of Johannesburg, Dunton Guest House is ideal.
The separate entrances and limited interruptions ensure an enjoyable couples stay.
P. S. The owners are friendly and very welcoming and customer centric. Our visits to Dunton give us the feeling of a home away from home.

From the moment we arrived Iris and Gigi, the owners, made us welcome and comfortable. The room was very large, clean, and quiet. There is also a charming garden that guests can use. Gigi was a fantastic help when I discovered my mountain bike needed some repairs, he transported my bike to the repair centre at short notice and ensured we could leave the following day and continue our trip!

Hi Bill, we are glad that we could host you and Carl on such a special occasion and trust that you will be back next year. It was only a pleasure to be able to assist you with your mountain bike as Gigi enjoys the same sport and knew how important it was to you. Looking forward to hosting you both again.

Great stay, no fuss, no worries, no problems. Centrally situated with hosts always eager to help. I stayed in one of the units with kitchen, fireplace, a private Patio and very spacious. Denton also have back-up power so not affected by load shedding.

This is a outstanding little gem where the owners quickly feel part of family. The give space when needed but goes out of their way to accommodate one's request.
I loved the tranquility of the well kept gardens - makes one unaware of the bigger city surroundings.

My parents and I stayed and Dunton Guest house for two weeks in January. It was a little piece of heaven and tranquility in the midst of a busy Sandton. Gigi, Iris and Bonita were the perfect hosts, the rooms were modern, large and very comfortable, the daily cleaning service was excellent and breakfasts super delish. I highly recommend Dunton Guesthouse to any out of town visitor to Sandton and its surrounds.
