“guesthome not guesthouse”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014

the sunrock guesthouse in Johannesburg's Kempton park should not really be called a "guesthouse."

"Guesthome" would be the more appropriate description.

the owners, ina and her husband, Arthur, attended to their guests like they were friends spending the night in their home.

rooms were spacious and clean and the couple made sure that there was somebody up and about to bring guests to the airport even at 4 o'clock in the morning.

great and safe place to stay.

Just needed a one-night stay and glad my fiance and I picked Sunrock! It was well gated and safe. Had delicious breakfast in the morning and Sunrock was very accommodating with giving myself and fiance a ride to and from airport. Overall very happy and would recommend!

Friendly reception, good shuttle to en from airport, breakfast could be beter (some fresh fruits, was rather limited). Very nice rooms and excellent beds. Location is good after late arrival or before early departure from airport.

Sunrock Guest House was a lovely place to stay and I'd highly recommend it, especially to anyone on a budget. They'll pick you up from the airport and deliver you back there as well. It's winter now and it was chilly in the room. That was my only complaint! The staff were friendly and helpful and I enjoyed meeting other guests at meal times.

My daughter and I spent one night at Sunrock before our safari adventure so I used it for more of a way station flying in and out of Jo'berg. My tour operator wanted me to stay at a big hotel around the airport but I like smaller, personal places that have personality & feeling of the city. Sunrock was this & more. It was a 10-15 minute drive from the airport and they have pick up and drop off service. I was a little nervous when we drove up as it appears it may not be in the best neighborhood but I don't actually know this. When we entered the electronic large drive-in door, the main building was to the right and Charming! We drove around back to our room. The room was kind of spartan but the beds were very comfortable. Bathrooms was older but functional. We visited when it was cold and they do have a heating board which I hear is quite typical for S.A. but doesn't adequately heat the room. (I was cold in other hotels during our travels so it was not different than any where else.) There were enough blankets to be warm in bed. There is a living room and dining room in the main building. The most significant thing is how the owners and staff give personal service. We missed our flight to SA and arrived a day late. We had paid for our room in advance so they could have charged us again since we booked through a service but Ina honored our stay. Hanah was terrific and very helpful too.

Great place to stay not far from the airport, the airport transfer is included in your rate and staff is outstanding. I would highly recommend this place. Delicious breakfast and dinner too! Thank you so much!

we were warmly greeted as expected guests and given advice on how to complete our next journey. We had an excellent meal at night for a small additional charge.The room were spacious and faced onto a lawn where we could stroll and enjoy the sunshine
