I have stayed at Sunrock Guesthouse several times and this wonderful place is never a disappointment. The food is wonderfully prepared and the hosts, Ina and Arthur Johnson are so welcoming. They provide airport pickup right after your arrival and take you back when you need to go. They're always on time. My husband and I recommend Sunrock Guesthouse to any and all who are traveling in the Johannesburg area.

First things first - this is not a fancy business hotel, it's run by a charming couple who with their staff clearly work very hard to make this justifiably a comfortable and friendly place to stay. It is not the most modern guest house but the transfers were spot on, they helped me with my travel arrangements around J’burg and best of all at the end of the day there is a warm welcome and a fabulous communal dinner, usually a BBQ. If you like a nice sociable drink and great food with a bit of company this is the place to be. You could not be made more welcome especially when you are a seriously long way from home.

The owner of the Sunrock Guesthouse were very nice and accommodating. Our flight from Paris was delayed 16 hours! Before we left Paris, we called to let them know that instead of arriving at 11am Friday, we'd be there 4am Saturday. They said no problem and too call when we landed. Well, we called but no one answered so we took a taxi. When we arrived at the hotel, everything was dark. It turns out that the electricity was out so they didn't get our call! Once we woke them up, they were very nice and felt bad that they didn't get our call.

Sunrock is located very close to the airport. However, at the airport, no one heard of it. This is because Sunrock has their own driver. Make sure you have a very detailed map in case you have to take a taxi. Our map was not detailed at all and our driver had a difficult time finding the place.

We didn't stay but a few hours as our flight was at 11am the same day. But the pool looked nice, breakfast was good, and the bar looked fun. We'd stay again.

We stayed there 3 nights on our way to/from Kruger on a safari. Could't have asked for better service from Hennie who transported us to/from the airport and train station to Arthur who was very hospitable and cooked great meals to his wife Ina who was very kind and made you feel at home. The rooms were spotless and the staff was very accomodating in all ways. Breakfast was included in the rate but you had the option to have dinner for a reasonable price and the meals were fantastic! Just like home cooking!!!

Great service from a friendly, helpful staff!! We arrived late and hungry off a flight from Nairobi, and were picked up by a lovely gentleman who dropped us off 10 minutes later at the guest house. We were worried about something to eat at 8 pm, he went and checked to see if the buffet dinner was still on and it was!! They held it for us, cleared us a space at the bar and were so friendly about it. Clean, large rooms, simple and basic but really nice. Only tiny complaint would be a bit of noise from a neighbor through a connecting door but we slept well anyway. Highly recommend!!

Coming to SA from Nigeria for us was a lot of planning. A friend actually recommended Sunrock for us to stay as we transit to Sun city though because he stayed there for his honey moon and they had lots of fun. Though, we didn't eventually make it down to sun city (kwena Charlet) for some reason but we had a great time staying back at Sun Rock. Ina is such a wonderful women, she assisted us all the way even when it seemed not convenient.

They are a wonderful family, very friendly and hospitable. They dropped us off at every major outing and they made our Jburg trip very interesting and memorable. I look forward to breakfast, believe me it's great, dinner is even lot splendid. They have wonderful staff (kitchen staff, cleaners and driver) and they are very concerned about cleanliness and hygiene of the rooms and the surroundings.

The best part of it all was that it's just like 10mins to the airport.

When we visit Jburg again, we would stay in Sun Rock. I recommend Sunrock for business travellers, honey moon, couples, family and tourists. Give it a shot, a trial will convince you.

Located just minutes from the airport and transportation is included. Arthur and Ina made us feel very welcome, we wanted to stay longer. Avoid the large, expensive hotels where nobody knows who you are. You will remember your very warm, pleasant stay at Sunrock.
