Had stayed before (Dec 2009 with my mother) so picked Sunrock to stay at while my brother came over for a visit. Arthur & Ina were even better than the last time I stayed. Picked us up at the airport - got us settled in for the night and had us at the airport the next morning for our trip to Jefferys Bay. Picked us up a week later & we stayed another night before the next leg of the holiday to Namibia. My brother had an early morning flight from Namibia with a late evening connecting flight to the USA. Arthur & Ina were great picking him up from the airport & letting him relax at their place rather than sitting at the airport for hours before a 18 hours flight. They even provided him with a good supper before getting him back to the airport. (He says one of the best meals he had during his visit). Their hospitality was fantastic. Feels more like home than a hotel/B&B. They go way above & beyond to make guests feel comfortable. Will definitely be back!!

We (family of four) needed accommodation in Johannesburg for our first and last nights accommodation in Johannesburg - and stayed at Sunrock for both nights.

Ina & Arthur own the guesthouse and they went out of their way to make our stay a great one, including driving us into Rosebank to see the famous craft markets.

The guesthouse is a stone's throw from Johannesburg's international airport and the free transfers to and from the airport were a nice touch.

The guesthouse is clean, well priced, and very secure - my family felt very safe whilst we were there despite Johannesburg's reputation for crime.

We are very happy to recommend Sunrock guesthouse to other travellers needing a place to lay their heads close to the airport.

Room Tip: Rooms 3 and 4 at the front of the guesthouse are very nice.

We stayed here for only one day, before coming back home. The guest house is very clean, the rooms are big and comfortable at a very good price. You can also have diner (the best african diner we had!) The owners are very very kind: we had the flight in the evening and they let us stay in the room for all the afternoon for free. The owners also collected us at the airport and trasferred us at the airport when leaving for free. It's very comfortable to airport and to see Soweto. Wonderful experience!

The airport transfers were great and so were the home-cooked dinner and breakfast. Our room was fine- (only thing, no door between bedroom and bathroom, which was a bit odd). Heating panel in room, but no central heat- although I imagine that this is only an issue for a month or two during winter and it seems like a lot of places in South Africa were unheated. Plenty of blankets, hot water, could buy wifi access, have a drink by the fireplace in the bar/community area. Very friendly and great location- seemed quite safe. Great place for overnight near the airport.

I went here with a group of students. We were on our way to Mozambique to do research in the gold mines. Arthur and his wife made our one-night stay very comfortable and luxurious. They cooked us delicious steak, served with scrumptious mushroom sauce, veggies, potatoes, and a variety of juices. Our accommodations were very comfortable and functional. This was definitely one of the finest and most memorable places we stayed during our three-week trip in Africa.

We traveled Africa with a group of 8 students with a 14 hour, overnight layover in Johannesburg. Sunrock is super convenient to the airport and the provided transportation was excellent, on time, and free.

I made all the arrangements with Ina via email from the States. Every email I sent was answered promptly and courteously. Dinner was superb, nice little bar and pool area. I wish I had more time to stay and enjoy it longer.

The rooms were clean, modern, and comfortable. Overall, an excellent value with great owners who know how to take care of their customers.

I stayed at this guesthouse one night and everything was wonderful. Started with an on-time and friendly pick-up at the airport by Arthur. 10 minute drive and we were at the property. The owners are wonderful people and prepare an awesome BBQ for dinner, well worth the price. Beautiful room, comfortable beds. Low airport/airplane noise. Small fee for internet.
