“Convenient, relaxing, safe oasis near airport”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

We had one night in Jo'burg after a long flight, and wanted an affordable, safe and convenient place to stay the night. We found that and more! It was wonderfully stress-free to have our driver pick us up in the airport, given that it was our first night in Africa and we were exhausted. We had a good night's sleep in a comfortable, clean room, and a nice shower in the morning. Great breakfast and friendly staff. The grounds are lush and beautiful, a small oasis in the city. My daughter (6) was delighted with the hotel's dogs and a parrot. We were glad she was able to run around the yard before we started the day's long drive to Kruger. I'm so glad I booked here and didn't have to walk to a large, bleak airport hotel that night. Don't be worried by the sketchy neighborhood you drive through, we felt very safe in the hotel's gated complex.

Sunrock is a great accomodation in the moderate price range. It's very close to the airport. The minute we entered the gates, my husband and I were welcomed and treated like friends. The owners were happy to assist us in every way possible with questions about traveling, directions, and general sites to see in the City. We first stayed after arriving at Tambo International Airport, and were exhausted from a long flight from the US. We slept like logs! We then stayed again prior to our departure since we had such a good first experience. It was just super relaxing- the food was great and we met interesting travelers.

Our room was clean and inviting, the shower was warm, the bed was comfortable. Sunrock has a family atmosphere and was just plain "nice to come home to." Highly recommended!

My brother's travel plans changed late, and I found myself needing to spend a unplanned night in J'burg on the way to Swaziland. After a quick search I found Sunrock, and rather than just a place to spend a night found a destination in and of itself. The rooms were above and beyond expectation, service fantastic, and the dinners a great chance to enjoy some excellent food and meet people from all over. On top of it all wifi allowed me to remain connected. Definitely will be back next time I have a night in J'burg.

If you don't want to stay within the immediate vicinity of the airport, and are looking for a cheaper alternative, then we can recommend Sunrock. The owners were friendly, the room was clean and well sized. We had to wait a few minutes for the shuttle service, arriving early evening, and the shuttle service back to the airport at 430am the next day was fine. It is not the kind of place with lots to walk to in immediate area, it is a gated accommodation, so if you are just looking to sleep, it is fine. It does have a nice restaurant/eating/bar area by the pool. We could not get the wireless internet to work with the access code given, but were too tired to worry about it. We would stay here again.

We stayed there for 1 night prior to flight departure. Situation is ok, the neighborhood is a bit shabby but no issues to relate. We got lost when arriving by car, we called and Arthur came straight over to show us the way. Arthur and his wife are very friendly and I must say this really lightens up the place. The room we stayed at was at the entrance, it was clean and well cared. We thought it would be noisy, but we slept through the night and the alarm clock woke us up. The diner warmly proposed is good, though a bit pricy. Morning Breakfast is plentifull and helps you start a good day. I recommand the stay which gives a more human touch to hotels that are more impersonnal.

Room Tip: Room at the entrance is quiet.
