“Perfect for airport stop-over!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2013

If you need a great place to stay close to the airport - this is it! We landed in Jo'burg at night and our connection to Durban was the next morning.
As promised, the driver was waiting for us. It only took several minutes to get to the hotel at that time of night. Our room was small, but totally sufficient. Clean & tidy.
Breakfast was in the main house, which appeared to be the original building. The hotel style rooms have been added. The breakfast was fantastic!! Remember that you have to order your eggs here. We just assumed they would be on the buffet table with the rest of the food, but once we figured that out, the cook was very fast in providing it.
The REAL test of the hosts came when I realized, as we were approaching the departure terminal the next morning, that I had left my iPod on the night stand. No problem! The driver immediately called back to the hotel and they confirmed that is was there. Then, the driver dropped us off, went back to the hotel, and returned through all the heavy traffic with the iPod. SERVICE!!
By the way, while you're waiting for breakfast, don't forget to enjoy the beautiful parrot in the living room!

Due to flight times we had a 23 hour layover in Jo'burg and Sunrock's proximity to the airport drew us in. A driver with a van large enough for 6 of us whisked us away and 10 minutes later we were surfing on free wifi and lounging on he comfortable beds. The evening brai and morning breakfast both tasty and filling. Most importantly though was the friendly and warm welcome we received by the owners. Now, if only they let me ride their Harleys!

I stayed overnight at this B&B and really had a wonderful time. Unfortunately, they had just experienced a fire in their little bar area but they were still in good spirits. The staff (including their family & dogs) were very friendly and quite helpful. The room was bright and clean and had great wireless and cable TV. The breakfast in the morning was delicious. Bonus...they pick you up from the airport which is always a plus. Also, the train station is a quick drive from the hotel so you can head to other areas of Joburg like Sandton. And the driver will take you to the train station.

Really wonderful stay and I would highly recommend it.

Picked the hotel for the proximity to the airport, had a short 12 hour layover coming from Malawi before heading out to Kruger. The drive is only 5 minutes from airport to hotel. We were dropped off at our room and bags brought in. Met the owners for check in. They are warm and friendly, making us feel at home. Room was large and the en-suite was spacious with a shower and separate tub. Everything was clean and neat. Dinner was steaks on the bbq with all the fixings. The bar is honor and open all the time. The hotel is located in a busy area, but staying in the back building, we heard nothing in the room. Breakfast was wonderful, with hot and cold items. Had a great night sleep.

Room Tip: The rooms in the back of the property - rooms in the teens are the quietest

Did an overnight in Johannesburg on our way to Pretoria. The Sun Rock is a quaint, affordable and comfortable little place close to the airport. The owners are wonderful and the services highly adequate. If your looking for the Ritz this isn't it but for atmosphere I highly recommend.

We stayed here on our way to Zambia and it was a very comfortable stopover and the breakfast was lovely. The room was clean and the bed was good. The shuttle service was very good and convenient. Would definitely stay here again.

Dont be fooled by the picture, the boma isnt there anymore. As for peaceful suburb......I stayed there on Sunday night the 30th of June and the disco / club just down the road had music pumping into the early hours of the morning.
The area that the guesthouse is in doesnt look safe and whilst there is a wall around the property there are no burglar bars on the windows of the rooms and they are on ground level. As a lady staying alone I did not feel safe.
I would NEVER stay there again and I would NOT recommend it for anyone.
The only nice thing I can say about the place is that driver who collected me and returned me to the airport, Lewis, was great.
