“Couldn't Ask for a Better Place to Layover”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2011

We traveled Africa with a group of 8 students with a 14 hour, overnight layover in Johannesburg. Sunrock is super convenient to the airport and the provided transportation was excellent, on time, and free.

I made all the arrangements with Ina via email from the States. Every email I sent was answered promptly and courteously. Dinner was superb, nice little bar and pool area. I wish I had more time to stay and enjoy it longer.

The rooms were clean, modern, and comfortable. Overall, an excellent value with great owners who know how to take care of their customers.

I stayed at this guesthouse one night and everything was wonderful. Started with an on-time and friendly pick-up at the airport by Arthur. 10 minute drive and we were at the property. The owners are wonderful people and prepare an awesome BBQ for dinner, well worth the price. Beautiful room, comfortable beds. Low airport/airplane noise. Small fee for internet.

We stayed at Sunrock Guesthouse as we had an overnight stay in Johannsburg. The owners were extremely friendly and accommodating. They offered dinner at an extra cost, but we chose pizza instead and they took care of ordering. Had a cute area with pool table, dinner tables, large bar and fire place for the guests. Also had a macaw and African Grey, which I loved! Bathrooms looked like they were recently renovated. Room was a bit chilly tough. We would recommend staying here for your layover in Johannsburg!

Good nice reliable guesthouse, pickup/drop-offs worked very good. the driver had to wait 1 hour 30 minutes for because of lost luggage, and the was still extremely friendly. The hosts are great, food is good, both the breakfast as the dinner (dinner is an optional extra). Only 5 min. from the airport. The only disadvantage is that you have to pay for the internet. I recommend the guesthouse.

My friend and I only stayed for 1 night, but within those 10 hours we experinced a genuine honest service. A host who really cared for his guests and took that responsibility very serious arranging taxi, good traveling etc. Our stayed peaked in panic when I in the airport had lost my passport, and out of the blue like an angel Arthur, the host, appeared among hundreds of travellers with a great smile on his face and my passport in his hands. Sublime service, never to be forgotten.

Nice B&B close to OR Tambo airport. Quite easy to find. We arrived there at dark and were helped very good. The room was spacious with two single beds, desk and bathroom with toilet, sink and shower. As you are close to the airport you can hear sometimes a plane, but it didn´t bother us.

Breakfast is served and you can make an order for eggs, bacon, etcetera.

I had to stay in Joburg near the hotel for one night and found the perfect place!! The hosts were great, I was picked up at the airport, had dinner with them, and had a great time having a few drinks in their lovely company! For one night, forget the overpriced airport hotels, enjoy a more affordable and relaxed option !
