“Fantastic Spot close to Tambo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

We spent one night here after flying into Johannesburg. We were picked up by a Sunrock driver whom had our names listed on signage at the airport arrival terminal. Upon our arrival to the guest house, we met Arthur and Ina. They are great people and amazing hosts. We had drinks with them well into the evening, and Arthur introduced us to the Springbok shot. The food was excellent, and the rooms were comfortable and spacious. I highly recommend staying here when in Jo'burg.

We stayed at Sunrock Guest House at the beginning and end of our visit to the Johannesburg ariport. Ina and Arthur are great hosts. The rooms are quite comfortable, the breakfast was excellent, and the intranet access was free. We joined the family for the optional dinners - good simple food. They picked us up and dropped us off at the airport, with no complications. Would definitely recommend.

The Sunrock Guesthouse near the airport is a great place. It has a complimentary pick up and drop off at the airport and also provides inexpensive trips to the Gautrain station. The breakfast is very good and is served in a pretty room. The optional dinner features typical South African braai and other great food served in a thatched outer building at long tables. Ina and Arthur Johnson are the hosts and they do a good job of helping with all sorts of travelers' needs, including arranging various tours around town and the nearby area. We will definitely be back!

Do not hesitate to stay several days here at Sunrock. You will experience warm and friendly service. You need some kind of transportation as the location is in an area with no facilities. The hosts are making home made food every evening and the bar is open for self service. The free internet is limited to mainly downloading the mails. The rooms are in fine condition and have the needed comfort. A free transportation between Sunrock and the airport makes the travelling easier. I had a very good experience with Sunrock and had a fine price for the room.

I am an avid traveler and I have to note when a hotel goes above and beyond. Sunrock Guesthouse went out of there way to help when I had a change in my travel plans. They are very professional and helpful... well done!

Spend a great time at the Sunrock Guesthouse. Especially the owners are awesome and very helpful and make just more out of this location. The rooms are clean and spacious and the the gustehouse is very green with a pool and a honesty bar. Breakfast is more than comprehensive and I´d alo recommend to book the supper, bacuse it is just baie lekker ! The guesthouse is located close to the airport and a supermarket can be reached within minutes. The owners are very helpful if you would like to see some sitings in Jo´burg and also if you have to leave your room in the morning but have to stay till the evening to catch your flight it is very comfortable to stay there. Sunrock Guesthouse rocks and I´ll stay there if am back in Jo´burg.

Go there for your first night or transit from Joburg. We arrived late, where picked up from the airport and driven back the next day for our connection. No added cost.

The place is clean and the owners are very friendly. We arrived quite late and the bar was actually closed, but we could go in and grab ourselves a few beers and wind down after the long flight. We closed our own tab, turned of the lights and went to bed a few ours later.

I recommend it.
