“Near O.R. Tambo Airport”
Reviewed December 30, 2013

Sunrock is an excellent place to spend the night before or after a flight from / to Johannesburg. It is nicer and more personal than the anonymous hotel-chains. The owners provide a cab-service to and from the airport which works good. You can hear the airplanes but only moderately.
Within the gates the place is safe and beautiful, nice garden, swimming pool, you'll be well away from the airport atmosphere. The personnel is friendly and helpful.
One drawback: be prepared to arrive and leave the hotel by car. You will not be expected to leave by foot as the environment isn't considered safe enough.

We stayed at the guesthouse between flights out of Tambo. The owners are very friendly and accomodating. The dinner was delicious. The atmosphere is very homelike making conversation with the other guests natural and enjoyable. The pool and gardens are lovely.

Great hospitality 5 minutes from the airport. After a 14 hour flight we arrived at 10pm to be greeted after customs and whisked to the guest house. No check-in, just a quick orientation and straight to the room, just what we needed. We woke to a lovely breakfast and the owners could not have been friendlier or more helpful.

This is a basic B&B designed for overnight stay by guests to/from JNB and meets that need perfectly. It is in what looks like a residential/semi-industrial neighborhood so not much to do around. Rooms are relatively small but efficiently designed. Internet was reliable and 'free' for the room price. Dinner was semi-buffet, with steak made to order, and excellent at a very reasonable price. Breakfast was decent and plentiful (included in room price). Free shuttle to/from airport capped the deal. The staff/owners are extremely friendly and efficient, and thus easily made up for any minor shortcomings (like a dated, ugly CRT tv in room).
This may be my go to airport accommodation in Jo'Burg from now on.

Spent the night in Sunrock between Mbombela and Zambia. Near the airport, with free pick up, and solid rooms for the price.

The staff were very friendly and accommodating, and their fair priced dinner (and free breakfast) were simple but hearty.

Very friendly staff and the pick-up at the airport was great. Location was okay, close to the airport. Nice hot breakfast. Rooms were average. Good for an overnight but wouldn't want to stay longer. :)
