“Friendly and accomodating”
Reviewed December 5, 2011

I stayed at Sunrock at the beginning of a volunteer trip I made to South Africa. As promised, I was met at the airport by Henry and delivered to the guesthouse. I had a lovely dinner, then headed to my room for some sleep. The room was super clean and comfortable. At the end of my trip I had planned to stay with Ina and Arthur again, but my plans changed and they happily refunded my prepaid room charge. Over all a great experience. I highly recommend Sunrock Guesthouse.

Perfect transit hotel (for stopovers in Johannesburg). Good and reliable airport pick-up and drop-off service. Modern facilities, nice room, good shower, good bar, decent breakfast, correct price, good value for money. Can be booked via the internet.All what you need for a stop-over night in OR Tambo.

We stayed here for 1 night at the beginning of November. Nice place close to the airport. Great garden with pool, nice bar facilities, delicious braai (BBQ) at night with the possibility to meet others. Room was nice, spacious, with nice movie channels.
You really have the feeling that you are part of the family. The owners and staff are so friendly, lovely kids, lovely dogs.

We had an evening flight and could stay in the room all day. They even ordered nice pizza for us for lunch.

Would definetily stay here again and recommend this place to all.

We have stayed in this hotel as a transit hotel in Johannesburg and it has been perfect. They are very punctual and professional. The swimming pool is awesome and the breakfast generous.

I stayed at Sunrock when I first arrived in joburg ready for my flight the next day. I booked again for my stay at the end of my holiday. Henry is a gem and your first point of contact when he picks you up from the airport. My flight home wasn't until late in the afternoon so Ina & Arthur were kind enough to let me have a late check out and were happy for me to hang around the Guesthouse for the day. A very friendly family run business and a great place to stay between flights.

We were met at airport by a very likeable, friendly gentleman named Hennie so we were not surprised to be greeted by like people at the guesthouse. The couple (Ina and Arthur + Arthur's Mother) that run the guesthouse are delightful, very accommodating and very helpful... just don't ask them about the venomous snakes of South Africa.. just kidding, we didn't see one.

Meals were great, just your basic good old fashioned "home-cooked" grub, nothing gourmet or pretentious here. The evening meal was a great place to chat with other tourists/visitors and swap ideas and accept advice. A great start to a wonderful tour of an awesome, beautiful country.
