“Fantastic! near Airport.”
Reviewed August 23, 2012

Great family owned lodge. We had a very long few days of travel from Phoenix and this was the perfect place to spend the night before driving out to the Kruger area. We were dropped at our rooms and after getting settled we went to the beautiful bar / restaurant area to enjoy a very nice dinner. We enjoyed conversation with a couple from Belgium, people from Capetown and a couple from Namibia. In the morning we were served a full breakfast with fresh fruits, breads, omelettes, cereals, etc. Arthur then made sure we had driving directions before dropping us off at the rental car agency. Highly recommend Sunrock!!!!!

With a 12 hour layover from CPT to LHR was looking for something close to the airport; came across Sunrock on a web search and decided to give them a try - one of the best decisions I have made on this trip. In a nutshell, close to the Airport with transportation included, spotlessly clean, super room with comfortable bed, coffee maker with plenty of supplies, soft thick towels and best of all a bedside reading light that did not leave me squinting. Enjoyed a fantastic supper that they served buffet style - the lamb ribs cooked on the Braai were incredible. Did not get to try breakfast as I had a 05:45 am departure. Booking over the web site was simple and confirmed via e-mail quickly and great value for money. Arthur and Ina are super innkeepers and the gentleman who took care of getting me to and from the airport showed a level of customer service that could be an example for other hotels to follow. Highly recommend for both business and leisure travels who are looking for a home away from home.

After a very long day of travel from Los Angeles to Johannesburg (24 hours in an airplane!)
We were ready to relax. Sunrock Guesthouse turned out to be perfect for us. We rented a car at the airport and followed our previously mapped directions to the nearby Sunrock Guesthouse.
It's in a bit of a rough area, but once inside the security gate we were warmly welcomed by Ina who showed us to our simple but clean and welcoming room. We joined Ina, Albert and a few guests for drinks and a great dinner and then enjoyed the comfortable bed.
Breakfast was excellent and Albert was very helpful giving us directions to Kruger National Park.

Room Tip: Plan to stay here for dinner...it's great and you don't need to go outside the security gate

This 'grading' was tough call. We booked and were confirmed with adjoining rooms but turned up to be told that there had been a 'mistake' and that we were all in one room (2 adults and a 16 year old boy), as everything else was taken. By the time we got there and with an early flight to catch, we were in no mood to go elsewhere. Granted, our bill was substantially reduced and the in-house BBQ was very good in both quality and value terms. Had it not been for this, we'd have given a good, solid 4* - rooms were OK and breakfast was average. But after 3 weeks on the road and faultless accommodation, we left feeling that we had been 'done' and, notwithstanding the politeness of the staff and our postive points, we'd been victims of a drive to fill beds more than look after customers! Sorry.

We stayed here for a night on the way to Botswana. It is very close to the airport and the transport to and from the airport was quick and friendly. The staff were most helpful and the dinner at night was great - very good steaks from their barbeque, salads and masses of other food and drinks. We would definitely stay here again.

They provided transportation to and from the airport. It is a family owned business which really showed in how they took care of the guests. They dropped us off close to our rooms and asked how we wanted our steaks cooked. Told us to meet them down in the dining room a short time later and our meal would be ready. Art and Ina are great cooks. Food was delicious! Our group enjoyed the family cooked dinner. After dinner, local drinks were enjoyed in their bar area. Also, some members of our party enjoyed a game of pool.

We were served a delicious breakfast before going back to the airport. Our girls enjoyed the green area for their exercise routine. The Johnson's family dog joined the girls in the yard.

This Guest House worked great for our short stay.

They provide transport both to and from the airport. The rooms are great and the staff is very helpful. Since we only had one evening in Joberg, we had the urge to maybe see a little night life. But after one beer at the B&B's onsite bar, we realized this was the best place to spend your evening in Joberg.
