“A Great Place to Relax after a Long Flight”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2014

We stayed here for one night between the long flight from North America and the start of a three week trip through South Africa. The guest house is quiet and restful and the pool is inviting. The rooms are neat and clean and the beds are amazingly comfortable. The free shuttle to the airport works well. The lodging includes breakfast but dinner is an extra (reasonably priced). There are no lunch facilities but pizza or salad can be ordered in from a local restaurant if desired. Note this is a guest hotel (sort of motel) and not a hotel. The owner and his family live on premises and are very welcoming and helpful people. The meals provided by the guest house are home cooked and excellent. This is good value for money. If you don't arrive by car, you are sort of limited to staying in the guest house as the area around it is not really tourist friendly.

Of the 546 tenants who have submitted reviews it is clear that the 5 who rated Sunrock as terrible must have come from another planet, especially considering that a stagering 517 (96%) of the reviews fall into the very good and excellent categories. Sure, the guesthouse is located in an area which could be percieved to be dodgy, but the reviews don't suggest that there have been any incidents of a security nature within the perimiter of Sunrock.
My wife and i stayed at Sunrock on 22 May 2014 before catching an early morning flight to Tanzania the next morning. We were warmly welcomed at reception and found Ina and her staff to be extemely freindly and helpful.
Our room, whilst basic, was neat clean and comfortable and satisfied most of our needs. A small fridge and hairdryer would be useful additions.
The dinner and breakfast were good and greatly appreciated, as was the honesty bar.
We arranged to leave our car at thev guest house for a nominal fee and made use of the free airport shuttle service to drop us off on thev Friday morning and to collect us again on the monday morning. These transfers occured seamlessly and we enjoyed the great sense of humour of a very freindly driver.
I would certainly recommend Sunrock to travellers flying in late or flying out early for a convenient shuttle service and stayover. I will certainly use Sunrock again. Thanks to Ina and staff for a great experiece.

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.
