“The best stay near Jo'burg”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 17, 2012

The quote of Tripadvisor is really true. Arthur and Ina and the staff are really there for the visitors. And it's nice to meet other guest in the bar, during the braai, on breakfast.
We can say: it's the place to go when you are in Jo'burg near the airport and even also when you want to visit the city (and you have a car)

I stayed at the Sunrock Guesthouse on my way through Johannesburg with connecting flights allowing for an overnight stop. The guesthouse is located close to the airport and they provide free transfers at any time of the day or night. The rooms are spacious and the beds are extremely comfortable. Breakfast is included in the price of a room. Overall this is the perfect stopover and if needed I would certainly visit the Sunrock again and highly recommend it to anyone needing somewhere to stop over in Johannesburg or needing a few days accommodation there.

The driver picked us up from the airport at 2300 and returned us the next morning at 0800 for which the guesthouse does not charge. The driver had a sign with my name and was very helpful and courteous. The guest house rooms were slightly smaller than other guesthouses I had stayed at but very clean, tidy and the beds comfortable. The guesthouse had a continental breakfast set out with table service for cooked eggs. The coffee was instant and they had a good tea selection as well.

There was a lot of ambiant noise from the airport and the neighbors which started about 0500. The toilet window was open and did not have a screen which did let in a mosquito or two which woke me up in the night.

I would rate it a average to very good but nothing that struck me as outstanding but nothing that would preclude me from staying there again either. With the selection of guesthouses in the airport area I would like to try others. This was the second house that I stayed at in the Jo-burg area and would rate it behind the other one that I stayed in.

Room Tip: Look for a room in the interior areas due to the airport noise.

We are so glad we chose Sunrock as a place to recooperate after our long flight from the USA. We needed somewhere near the airport for one night before we caught another flight the next morning. Not only is it close by, but they also provide airport transfers at no charge. It is clean, they have a pool, the staff is very nice and the breakfast is good. You can also have a great buffet dinner there at a reasonable price. Perfect place to recover before your next journeys in South Africa!

Sun Rock Guest House is a very pleasant respite from travels near the airport. The complimentary shuttle to and from the airport and free WiFi are added benefits. Arthur and Ina serve a great dinner if you arrive in time and the complimentary breakfast includes made to order eggs. The rooms are roomy and comfortable. . This place beats the impersonal large airport hotels!

We spent one night here after flying into Johannesburg. We were picked up by a Sunrock driver whom had our names listed on signage at the airport arrival terminal. Upon our arrival to the guest house, we met Arthur and Ina. They are great people and amazing hosts. We had drinks with them well into the evening, and Arthur introduced us to the Springbok shot. The food was excellent, and the rooms were comfortable and spacious. I highly recommend staying here when in Jo'burg.

We stayed at Sunrock Guest House at the beginning and end of our visit to the Johannesburg ariport. Ina and Arthur are great hosts. The rooms are quite comfortable, the breakfast was excellent, and the intranet access was free. We joined the family for the optional dinners - good simple food. They picked us up and dropped us off at the airport, with no complications. Would definitely recommend.
