Great place to stay at when you have to bridge a day between flying into or out of JNB. Only 10 Min from the airport. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The whole place has a very homey atmosphere.

This trip was my first stay there and 6 days later, my second stay. I was very pleased. They had reservations ready, quick pick-up from JNB (5 minutes away), clean room and a very friendly staff. On the second stay, we also ate there and had an excellent braai (South African barbeque). The owners of this guesthouse were extremely helpful with any request. For an overnight stay when flying in or flying out, this is a great value.

We stayed at Sunrock on May 3rd at the beginning of our holiday and at the end on May 23rd as we needed to visit elderly relatives in Pretoria both times. Ina, Heather and Ilze were really friendly and helpful especially with arranging a safe and reliable taxi driver, Rocky, to take us to Pretoria and return us safely and reliably.
When we landed at OR Tambo Intl and Sunrock were there to meet us with the board with our name up which was easy for us to find. We were taken back to a wonderful place, the room was free too so we could dump our stuff and leave. The room was large and comfortable and the beds were really lovely. The room was very clean as were the bed linen and bathroom as you would expect. We had dinner there along with drinks from the honesty bar. It felt like we were staying with family as everyone was really friendly and the food was plentiful and very good. It was all very reasonably priced too and a great idea as we did not want to venture out in Jo'burg of an evening, so it is great that they provide a dinner.
We were taken to the airport early the next morning but luckily the staff allowed us in a little earlier for breakfast which was really great of them.
On the 23rd we had booked a family room and this room was great for what we required. Again the rooms were large and comfortable and clean. The evening dinner was great. The staff were just as friendly as the first time and the place was safe. I felt theta Sunrock had a really happy and friendly vibe to it. I was worried about security before I went there, but need not have been as Sunrock was very safe and secure, with a reliable service in collecting people and taking them to/from the airport.
We booked this last minute too as we had been let down by our family, so it was the real find of the holiday, with friendly, happy and helpful staff. I would thoroughly recommend staying here and I do hope to return to see the new eating/relaxing area which was being built when we were there.
A great place and a big thank you to all the staff for making our holiday start and end with happy, smiling and curteous people which really sums up South Africa.

My wife and I were very favorably impressed with our interactions with the people at the Sunrock Guesthouse, from the pre-arrival emails, to the complimentary transfer to our Overseas Adventure Travel meeting place. Since this was our first trip to Johannesburg, it was very reassuring for us to spot the driver from the Sunrock Guesthouse, waiting for us when we cleared the baggage claim area at the airport. The greeting at the Guesthouse was very friendly, and we enjoyed a delicious dinner before retiring to a comfortable room. Breakfast the following morning was equally satisfying, and we would definitely recommend this facility to anyone traveling to Johannesburg.

My wife and I stayed at Sunrock for a 1 night layover at JNB. Their shuttle was waiting for us upon arrival, and we were in our room within minutes. The staff is incredibly friendly and attentive, and the food was tasty and plentiful. This is less of a hotel and more like staying with friends! Thank you for the wonderful introduction to South African hospitality!

In contrast to the uninteresting and rather sketchy looking neighborhood, the B&B is a safe haven with its massive sliding metal gate and security. It is close by the airport in an industrial part of town, not walkable to anywhere. But the owners make it easy to get around by providing a driver and themselves to drive us to and fro for reasonable fees. The beautiful grounds is a mini tropical oasis around a swimming pool. The owners are in the process of rebuilding an entertaining area that will certainly add more appeal to the outdoor space. The rooms are clean and quiet, beds comfortable. The staff and owners are all very friendly. Food good - nice to have big breakfast spread and eggs cooked to order. We stayed there one night each before and after a safari at Kruger national park and it was very convenient as the tour operator picked us up there. Even though we had checked out in the morning before a day trip into Johannesburg, at the end of the day, the owner picked us up at the rail station with our bags and took us to the airport.
