Afton Guest House is in a residential neighborhood, the grounds are beautiful and the rooms are very nice, I felt it was a home away from home. They have a nice breakfast with eggs bacon, toast, cereal, fresh fruit, coffee, tea and juice. I recommend this guesthouse and will return one small drawback is the noise from the flight path...

My group of friends and I stayed at the Afton Guest House before flying out on a safari. Annelise is wonderful to deal with and the place is very nice, comfortable and the food is fantastic. I highly recommend this for traveling through Johannesburg.

I cannot say enough about how great Afton Guest House was for our trip. Annelise helped us obtain our rifle permits for South Africa and staff met us at the airport to make sure that everything went smoothly getting our guns into the country. We decided to have the steak dinner at the house that night and it was fantastic....

I had used Anneliese's service to obtain a gun permit in South Africa in 2015 when clearing customs enroute to Cape Town and this trip in 2016 stayed at her Afton House guest house. First is that they have amazing airport support at Johannesburg airport. On this trip my ammo case was missing and her assistant helped me locate it,...

Spent the night here on a stop over between flights. Great place to stay. Rooms were clean and well furnished, and the staff took great care of us. The grounds are beautifully maintained, and we enjoyed an evening outside listening to the birds while the staff barbecued our steaks. Their rep (Mr. X) met us at the airport and helped...

Annelise and her staff are wonderful - Mr. X eliminates ALL hassles at the airport to/from for our guests bringing hunting rifles into South Africa. In 2015 we had 22 guests including ourselves stay at Afton House and will return with guests i 2016 - no better place to stay if you're headed out on Safari. There may be 'Ritzier'...

I stayed at the Afton Guest House for two nights while I was travelling to Zimbabwe for a safari. I've stayed here several times in the past and have never been disappointed. The first night of my stay, Ari, son-in-law of the owner, Annelise, was doing his customary braai (barbecue) over open lead wood coals. For $25.00 you get a...

Stayed here one night while waiting for connecting flight that left the next day.

Grilled steaks with all the trimmings for dinner or provided transportation for anyone wishing to go...

I will continue to utilize Afton on my overnights in Johannesburg. Their curb side service at the airport is excellent, the room are nice and comfortable and the staff friendly. I recommend this guest house to all my friends without reservation.

Second stay with Afton House. Clean, comfortable rooms. Great breakfast. Very helpful staff. The airport pickup is great, but be firm when asking for information. The one guy, Maurius is efficient but not forthcoming with information. Annelise is very helpful and a great hostess. Her son in law (?) sells steak dinners at night. I wish there were other dining...
