“Great place for an airport connection”
Reviewed May 22, 2014

Everyone friendly and reception efficient, felt safe even though I was travelling alone, what you got for your money was fine, rooms clean albeit small and the dining room served adequate breakfasts and dinners etc. Bar area being built while I was there so should be even better in the next few weeks. Just ten mins from airport so nice and handy. Thank you Jill, Lanzarote May 2014.

We spent the night here after flying into Jo'burg after a 17 hour flight. Ina the entire staff, from owners to maids, were friendly. Everyone greeted us with a smile and ""Good Morning." The Guesthouse is only minutes from the airport, surrounded by a privacy wall and includes a pool and restaurant. The place was wonderfully quiet all night. Breakfast was plentiful, with eggs, beans, various meats, breads, yogurt and more. The rooms are basic and somewhat worn, but clean and neat. On our next trip we would definitely stay here.

We needed to stay overnight in the J'burg airport area and Sunrock served us fine.
The staff are very friendly and the pick up driver for the airport found us on a late plane and took us to our room.
The breakfast was excellent.

The free airport collection and drop off makes this guesthouse such a good pick. The rooms are nice, clean, and have tv, heater, hot water etc, and the family are very friendly and helpful. The 3 dogs are cool companions in the lounge!
Five minutes from the airport, we would definitely stay here if we needed to overnight in Johannesburg again.
They offer a bbq buffet dinner for 150 rand, and the drinks are cheap. Rm 2 is the honeymoon suite and has an amazing bathroom... ask for this if it's available and you want a bath.

You can rely on Sunrock to pick you up at the airport with their free shuttle service - the rooms have individual entrances with patio doors and they are comfortable, clean and well-equipped. Perfect for an airport layover. The staff are very kind and helpful and the included breakfast was bountiful and delicious. Even though it is close to the airport, it is very quiet for sleeping.

I just returned from a bird watching tour/safari through out Eastern South Africa and needed a place to stay the day I arrived and the day I was to leave South Africa. The tour company I used recommended the Sunrock Guesthouse as it was close to the airport. I found the staff to be super friendly and helpful and the free breakfast was a plus. There was also free pick up and return transportation to the airport and dinner could be purchased for a nominal fee. The place is not huge (like a big hotel) so the feeling if much more laid back with a small patio where one can relax. Great for one day stopover. No problem with the two little dogs that roam the residence. They have bird feeders at the front and rear of the property and a small pool as well. I would use this place again when traveling through Johannesburg.

Room Tip: All rooms are ground level.

We only had two nights in Johnnesburg and one stopover. Sunrock was really great in making our stay great and hassle free.

First night: arrived early evening, we took the free shuttle to the guesthouse, checked in, and immediately went out with a guide and car recommended by Sunrock so we were still able to have one night out, go see the local scene, and be in safe hands of course.

Stopover: we stopped over again in J'burg for a layover to Botswana. The Safari would only take small bags so what would we do with our luggage? Sunrock was nice enough (for a friendly fee) pick our our big luggage and store it for us until our return.

Last night: We arrived in the morning and had a full day out and evening by a local driver/ guide. (note: the second guide we got we coursed through the first guide and not through the guest house without thinking and not meaning to divert from the guesthouse and the guide was not as good, bad car and bad directions - make sure to have the guesthouse make the arrangements!) So again, we were able to go around J'berg for a day and safely go around in the evening.

All the staff we met were nice. The owners I think are a family who run the place together. They were very friendly and were very helpful in all that we needed. I would recommend the Sunrock Guest House to any of my friends who would be passing through Johannesburg and need simple yet nice accommodations.

Also knowing the reputation of J'burg I must say that we always felt safe with the recommended guide and while in the Guest house. They seem to have good security on the premises as well.

Room Tip: The first room we got was quite small and the toilet was ok - the second night we stayed there they...
