“Friendly budget lodge near airport”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2011

We spent 1 night here due to a flight shuffle and enjoyed our experience. The family who runs the place is very friendly and warm and they make it a home away from home. We took the option of the BBQ dinner at the lodge – also cooked by the family and really enjoyed chatting with the other guests, most of whom are repeat visitors. The lodge is just a few minutes from JNB airport and they offer a free pickup and dropoff service there. I would stay there again if I needed accommodation near the airport.

We were there twice, each time for one night in a double unit with dinner, bed & breakfast. We did not need anything more in Johannesburg but to spend a few hours and a night after & before an air flight. Guesthouse is close to airport and transfer is included. We liked meal, clean rooms and friendly staff. We felt safe there. They have a nice garden. For those who are looking for some activities in the city maybe ilocation is not so good.

The area surrounding Jo'burg airport is not the nicest and Sunrock provided us with a warm welcome in a secure surrounding for our one night stopover.

Our room was clean and comfortable, but I certainly would not want to stay here for an extended period since it does have drawbacks: no door to the toilet, little sound insulation, kitchen smells came straight into our room etc.

Overall: great value for money, especially when considering the free airport transfers and would consider staying there again for a stopover.

Sunrock guest house has a number of advantages: it's five minutes from Johannesburg Airport, they provide airport pickup and delivery, it's clean, the beds are very comfortable, the people who own (and run) it could not be nicer or more helpful, and it's very reasonably priced for its location. So what's not so great: the breakfast is ample but not great, they offer only instant coffee (for this American a major flaw, but not unique in South Africa), and while they offer three sport channels on tv, there's not one of news (also not unique in South Africa). All that said, my wife and I stayed there three times during our visit to South Africa and we'd stay there again if our schedule called for us to be near the airport.

Room Tip: Request one of the 2-bed rooms, they are larger.

The staff here are warm and welcoming, and very helpful and accommodating, with friendly and timely transport to and from the airport. The rooms are spacious and clean, and the double room had a wonderful large bathroom. The breakfast and dinner were both exceptional. I would stay here whenever possible!

Beautiful setting and great service, the owner arranged for a shuttle service to pick us up at Joburg airport and this all went smoothly. He was friendly and helpful (we travelled with 2 little kids)
We had an excellent cooked breakfast in the morning, you can't miss it!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and thought it was excellent value if you have to spend 1 night near Tambo International Airport.

This small hotel is close to the airport and has great service. They went above and beyond the call of duty to make my stay comfortable. They ferried me around town whenever I needed to go and took good care of me when I came down with a cold. Comfortable, clean rooms and relaxing atmosphere; family-friendly setting at a great price. I would definitely come back.
