“Lovely final night”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

After a diving holiday in Mozambique it was great to spend the final night of my holiday at Sunrock - comfortable, clean and quiet, it is friendly, good value and very convenient for the airport. The compound is safe, with attractive gardens. Breakfast was huge and offered plenty of choice too. I would definitely recommend having an evening meal here if it is on offer - a huge steak, grilled exactly as I like it by the chef, who drops by before dinner to ask how you want it cooked. I took a tour of the Apartheid Museum and Mandela's old house in Soweto, organised by the reception desk, which I would also recommend. A short but memorable stay!

I was looking for a nice hotel near the airport and this was much more. I had a lovely communal style dinner and had the opportunity to meet other guests. The location was conveniently located next to the airport for my early morning flight and I didn't have to sacrifice on comfort or style.

We stay in Sunrock guesthouse every time we transit Johannesburg from Lesotho, and also for short trips. It is the friendliest guesthouse with the owners accommodating various needs.

They pick you up and drop you at the airport in a spacious minibus - it is a a few minutes ride. They are extremely reliable; one time the owner even woke me up to make sure I was not missing my flight as my watch was set on the wrong timezone. I would have missed it wasn't it for him.

The guesthouse is a little oasis in the middle of the hectic city, and perfectly located close to the airport. Nice big pool and a social side-house to relax during the evenings where they cook and you can just hang out by the pool, they have a pooltable too.

Rooms are clean and spacious, very comfortable. Breakfast is very nice, good selection. You can enjoy your coffee also outside.

I would recommend to anybody, great value for money and extremely friendly and accommodating hosts.

Room Tip: There is a family room with two rooms opening together - perfect with kids.

It's a real one night stop place that you wish you'd stay more nights. Service was welcoming, good and practical. One slight minor - the nail studio smell next to our breakfast table. We'd recommend it

We stayed at the Sunrock twice whilst holidaying in South Africa. Location was convenient
for our family , as it is close to the airport & transfers to the hotel are complimentary. Very clean & comfortable , great for an overnight stay.

When we first arrived at Sunrock we wondered where on earth we had booked - it all seemed very retro and due to the security etc it seemed strange. However, we very quickly realised that the place is just very chilled - where else will you come across an honesty bar??
We had a really large lunch so were not up for the Braai in the evening but joined everyone for drinks and what an experience it was! We were sorry that we werent able to eat it but the company was unique - the hosts cooking and serving and all the guests chatting & mixing abs unique and we all had a lovely evening (inc our teenagers). The owner attended to all my daughters horrendous bites which was so helpful
rooms are fine - comfortable and clean and everything you need and good value for money
the driver was virtually at everyones beck & call & when he dropped us at the airport we left an ipad in the back. We called the hotel & he turned round and brought it to the airport to us - exemplary service
