Get Graded

Give your establishment the competitive advantage it deserves.

Why get graded

What sets your guest house apart from the one down the street? It is the stars adorned in our national flag greeting visitors at the entrance of your establishment. In this 10-part DIY series, TGCSA spends weeks visiting guest houses in Gauteng with a team from Idees Magazine, on a mission to score guest houses the best star grading possible. The Idees team where at hand with a hammer and paint brush to help guest houses get the stars they deserve.
