After a three month stay working in rural Tanzania, I had a 24 hour stop over in Johannesburg on my way to Argentina, so I just wanted a shower and bed! Sunrock organized to pick me up from the airport without an extra fee, and the driver (so sad I can't recall his name) is a very sweet man who made me feel at home immediately (though it was my first time in South Africa). Sunrock is only about 10 minutes or so from the airport and is on a secure property. The owners are a very sweet couple and the entire stay, the staff were very accommodating and welcoming. The room was large and gorgeous with a very comfortable, large bed, with a tv, shower,and coffee maker. There is a pool with lounge chairs (but i stayed in winter) and a outdoor covered bar. Dinner is a home-cooked meal and breakfast was a great buffet style meal with eggs cooked to order. I needed to buy some clothes, so the driver took me to the mall and picked me up once I was finished shopping and it was no problem. Everything about the stay was perfect, low-key, and comfortable. I would reccomend Sunrock for all types of travelers, but be aware that you will not be downtown. Great place for a layover or travelers needing to be close to the airport, or that want a family-feel while still having a quality room/stay.
