4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2014

I arrived in Johannesburg after a very long 14 hour flight with three screaming babes, to be met at the airport by the lovely people at Sunrock for my transfer. After being driven directly to my door I wandered around the guest house and met the owner who asked me if I wanted to have a home cooked South African meal - it was delicious - a pumpkin and egg bake, corn on the cob and delicious salads. The best part is that you don't sit alone. he owner puts you on a table with other guests, so I had a lovely chat with three colleagues visiting Jo'burg on business from Austria, Germany and Brazil.

The added benefit of this guesthouse is it's proximity to the airport and the free shuttle service.

I highly recommend this guesthouse where you will feel safe and relaxed in a luxurious room with a comfortable bed, satellite TV and a pool to dip in. It was a brilliant way start to my trip in South Africa.

Sunrock was a great place to stay after a very long flight from California & New York. Pick up and drop off at the airport was prompt. The room was large, comfortable and clean. The grounds were safe and lovely with plenty of room for our child to run around in after a long flight. The swimming pool was also very nice. Dinner was fabulous! The steak was one of the best I've ever had. Ina and Arthur are amazing hosts. I'd highly recommend the Sunrock guesthouse to anyone looking for a nice place to stay close to the airport.

We did not stay at the Sunrock. Reservation was canceled both with you and the hotel. Please correct your records and credit back any charges. Send confirmation to the email you have on file. Hotel was much to far from the airport and did ntsuitour needs. Inn fact cancelation wa shade twice. No complaint about the hotel just didn't work out.

We stayed one night at Sunrock. The guesthouse was close to the airport, very clean, offers a nice pool and a complimentary pick-up service from the airport. Ina was very welcoming. The food was good as well. Thanks, Ina!

I stayed at Sunrock Guest House 11/30/2013 on the first day of a three week trip to South Africa. I was met promptly at the airport by a great professional driver. The lodge was excellent, clean and inviting with lots of vegetation. Mostly I needed a cold beer or two, which was quickly taken care of. The food was excellent, abundant, and buffet style, the place was bustling, but individual service was the norm.

I can recomment the Sunrock Guesthouse with its very friendly people, the good rooms, the nice food, the excellent shuttle service, the short distance to airport, the nice dogs, the honesty bar. Will book again when on a stop-over in Joburg.
