“Great people, great place, great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2010

we spent 3 nights at the Sunrock Guesthouse.
Our group was formed by 3 families (10 people).
The guesthouse is located in an excellent position only 15 minutes from the airport so it's a great solution both upon arrival in Johannesburg and/or before departure, furthermore they offer free shuttle from/to airport.
The rooms are spacious and clean, but, overall Arthur and his wife's hospitality has been really a plus ! They arranged for us great dinners (barbecues are delicious !!) and took care of organizing different tours of the city.
We really felt as we were part of the family !
We absolutely suggest this place: it will be always our first choice in Joburg !

Sunrock was the ideal place to start our round trip. We had a warm welcome, had a comfortable room and a good breakfast in a familiar atmosphere.
Additional we got a pick up service from the airport, which was a great help for us.
The service is good.
Sunrock is very close to the airport, which is very good to pick up a rented car next day at the airport.

Nine of us (family) were passing through Jo-burg en route to Zambia for a medical mission. Arthur and Ina met us at the airport and cheerfully carted us and our luggage to Sunrock Guesthouse. Once there, they ordered pizza for our late supper and shared homemade biltong w/ us. We thoroughly enjoyed visiting w/ them in their thatched gathering room...great atmosphere and conversation. Extremely comfortable accomodations...very clean, neat, and convenient to the airport. Breakfast in the charming dining area was delicious. Our boys loved their parrot! Our hosts even stored some of our luggage while we were in Zambia and brought it to us on our return through Jo-burg to Cape Town and then once again on our way back to US through Jo-burg. We will definitely repeat this stopover on future trips!

We (family of 5) stayed in a family room having booked by internet. The room had beds for us all, TV and en suite bath. Clean. Secure compound. Sunrock is relatively newly built (10 years?) and the current owners have had it about 5 years. 5 minutes from airport with complementary transfer (I rang from the airport and Arthur was there in under 10 minutes - they own 2 minibuses for this purpose). Rates were very reasonable. Set dinner (the evening we were there a BBQ) very nice and reasonably priced - good social atmosphere with owners and the other guests. My kids (10,13,15) enjoyed the pool table. we were not visiting Jo'berg but moving on, so I cannot comment on transport links to the city, but subject to that this would be a good base to visit Jo'berg.

Sunrock is located 5 min from Joburg airport and free transportation is provided. Ina and Arthur cannot do enough for you. The rooms are clean, bright and comfortable. The full hot breakfast was delicious as was the dinner that we requested. Dinner was served in the beautiful thatched lounge bar area that will remind you of being in the bush. Ina arranged transportation for us to spend a day at an animal viewing park. Whenever we stay in Johannesburg we will be at Sunrock, staying there is like staying with personal friends.

I stayed at Sunrock Guesthouse with a group of 9 as we were passing through Johannesburg on the way to Zambia for a medical mission trip. The location was great (very close to the airport), and the service was spectacular. Arthur, the owner, met us at the airport and transported us there. He ordered pizza for us, gave us some of his homemade beef jerky, and shared some of his interesting South African experiences. We slept well, and the next morning had a great breakfast. The fruit, cereal, bread, and made-to-order eggs were great! Our group had planned to store some luggage at the Johannesburg airport, but when Arthur found this out, he told us it would be way too expensive and offered to store our luggage at his guesthouse for free! After our medical mission in Zambia, we came back through Johannesburg on the way to Cape town for a few days of vacation. Arthur met us at the airport and switched out our stored luggage for the bags we had taken to Zambia. Then a few days later, on our way back to the states, he met us again to return our luggage. He was extremely helpful and went way above and beyond! Sunrock Guesthouse is a great place to stay!

Great value for great service. Airport pickup late on Saturday evening worked very well. Clean large comfortable room with tea and coffeee.
Able to arrange an early breakfast, muesli, fruit juices, egg bacon and toast all done to order. Then airport drop off for an early flight.
Very friendly homely atmosphere.
I have recomended this place to my brother who stayed there last weekend.
