“Great place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

Close to airport and the driver was waiting for us as our flight came in. He delivered us to the door of our room. The room was spacious and clean with very comfortable beds. Ina and Aurther were very welcoming. We enjoyed a family style dinner after arrival while sampling the local beer and wine. The crowd in the bar was friendly and fun to chat with. Breakfast was fabulous. Unfortunately, we we only staying for the night as we had a flight to catch in the morning. The driver promptly delivered us to the airport and got us to the appropriate ticketing counter.

This is a great value for all that you receive. Highly recommend.

This B&B was handy for airport with a free pick-up service. The owners were extremely helpful, friendly and made you feel very welcome. The breakfast and evening meals were excellent. Will stay again.

We had two overnight layovers in Johannesburg and stayed at Sunrock Guesthouse both times. The rooms are nice and clean and the place is lovely. The lounging area has a really nice pool. We had free transportation to and from the airport and they were on time and extremely friendly. The staff is very welcoming and the nightly BBQ they organise is fantastic!! Good food, great setting and a good way to meet others staying in the place. The breakfast was very good, they provide everything from eggs and bacon to yogurt and cereals. We didn't have wifi working in the rooms but they had computers available to use. I would highly recommend Sunrock to anyone that is looking for a nice place to stay that is close to the airport. They definitely exceeded my expectations and based on other reviews I read I was already optimistic about the place.

Located within four kilometres of airport and picked up on arrival. Good clean rooms with comfortable beds. Owners Arthur and Lina most welcoming and informative. They will arrange to have hotel driver deliver guests to Gauteng
terminal which is a very efficient, fast and easy to use subway type system to downtown Johannesburg.
At downtown pick uo drop on drop off bus service to all major tourist points. At no time did we feel unsafe or threatened and found Joburg an interesting city.
We found the hotel to be excellent value in all respects and we rebooked it for another night when we returned.
Arthur and Lina allowed an extended check out of five hours - a curtesy much appreciated as we had a very late fllight.
Both beakfasts (included) and the dinners (surprisingly inexpensive) were of excellent quality - the lamb in particular was among the best I hve tasted.
We would recommend Sunrock to any of our friends and would book this hotel again upon our return to Joburg.

This is basically a large motel with meal facilities and it includes pickup and delivery from/to the airport. The hosts are friendly and helpful and the food is midrange buffet with extra helpings encouraged.

The room we had was clean and tidy and is probably the same as most. It was very small so two bags were hard to manage. The bathroom was entered via a hard to move sliding door and a light bulb needed replacing. We didn't bother worrying the proprietors about that because that morning their native style bar had burned down and they had plenty of other stuff to worry about.
