Perfect couple of nights stay. Rooms decorated nicely. Beds very comfortable. Cleanliness was to a high standard. Food was lovely. Very close to the airport, you can hear aeroplanes passing but not enough to disturb you from sleep. Recommended.

While you might be concerned by the local area when you arrive here your concerns will be washed away by the warmth of the welcome at the Sunrock. The accommodation is simple 3 star motel style, the rooms are spotless and large. The owners were incredibly welcoming and we enjoyed the meal (nothing fancy, good South African fare) put on for guests in the evening.

We only stayed one night as we transited Johannesburg and were leaving very early in the morning, they prepared a small packed lunch for us both which we didn't request, this was a nice touch.

If you're looking for a stopover hotel near the airport that is not a generic chain hotel then the Sunrock is your best option.

There's not much more you could ask for given the experience we had. Maybe if buddy (the parrot) was a more friendly?

Such a shame there was a fire at the pool house. But offset by the pool bags - which are awesome!!

Thank you for a very hospitable stay. Plus thank you for the extra advice, late checkout and dinner.

A perfect place for an overnight stay while travelling. Helpful airport transfers, kind staff and peaceful oasis when travelling. Building works are in progress to replace one of the buildings but that in no way causes inconvenience.

I spent only one night at Sunrock, arriving late in the evening, leaving early morning. Pick up at the airport worked fine and the next morning I was taken to the Gautrain Station very timely. The place is more practical than beautiful, but my room (#12) was sufficient in size, clean and with a good matrace for a restful sleep. You do get some noise from the planes which didn't bother me much. Breakfast was ok, no filter coffee, but maybe I was just too early. The staff was friendly. The value for money is hard to beat, so I might stay there again.

This hostel was fantastic! I had a layover of 11 hours overnight and didn't want to fork out for a hotel within jo'burg airport, and I'm glad I didn't. I was picked up from the airport by one of their drivers, who was on time, friendly and welcoming. As a female travelling for the first time in SA it felt extremely safe and gave me a good impression of the country. On arrival I was greeted by the host, who was welcoming and helpful. It was pretty quiet due to the time of year, and their pool was under construction which didn't worry me! The rooms were luxurious and spotless, which I wasn't expecting for the price! I wish I had a longer time there, but in my short time it left a lasting impression. Highly recommended to anyone. So close to the airport and excellent value for money. The breakfast was also amazing, as was the transfer back tot the airport. Top marks all round.

excellent in every way! Heather was a dear and a help. The driver from the airport- was it Keith? Anyway he was great. Accomodations great. Crazy thing--left my window open in the bathroom and noted that there were all sorts of dirty footprints on the floor the next day..what in heavens was it? A cat?
Thank you!
