“Ideal for a short stay before or after a long flight”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2010

Rooms are basic but quite adequate for a night or two before or after a long flight. The owners (Ina and Arthur) are friendly and helpful. The free airport transfer is an excellent service. Be aware that other transfers are relatively expensive. We were dropped at the nearby station to take the new Gautrain to Sandton and were surprised to find a charge of 100 Rand on our bill. Dinner was not provided the night we were there but Ina kindly telephoned for home-delivery pizzas. It was enjoyable eating pizza and drinking South African wine in the company of other travellers from around the world.

We stayed at Sunrock when we first arrived in South Africa (traveling from the United States) and again, five weeks later, the night before our departure from S.A. Sunrock is located just a few minutes from Tambo International Airport and the owners, Ina and Arthur, offer a pickup and drop-off service from and to the airport. This is enormously convenient for anyone who arrives in Johannesburg exhausted from a long flight. Additionally, the weary traveler can eat a seven o'clock p.m. homemade supper in their outdoor "lapa" for just a few extra rand. This means that on the day of arrival a whipped traveler can be picked up at Tambo, whisked off to the guesthouse to freshen up, and later be fed a delicious, wholesome meal without having to navigate a strange city at night on the "wrong" side of the road on inadequate sleep. The rooms are sensibly furnished with nice linens, a roomy closet for storing luggage and sundries, and a small table with chairs. Everything was spotless. We also enjoyed talking with other travelers at breakfast and supper, especially other South Africans, who often stay at this guesthouse. We highly recommend Sunrock.

Stayed here after arriving in the evening at JNB OR Tambo Airport. Rented a car and drove here in the dark--the neighborhood around the guesthouse is somewhat sketchy, and the guesthouse has electrified fencing. However, they do have secure parking inside the gate.

This is an Afrikaans family-run guesthouse, and the husband and wife are very friendly, and the kids and dogs run around the property. Very communal atmosphere, which can be nice. Rooms were nice and had heaters, and were pretty basic, but clean. Breakfast is home-cooked by the owners and staff, and is made to order. Food was very tasty and filling. We drove to Kruger in teh morning.

Basically, I would recommend this guesthouse for a one-night stay, but not for much longer, given its location in a less-than-ideal residential/commercial area. But it will be a decent one-night stay.

If you want quality for your money Sunrock is the place to go. The place is situated in a nice environment close to the airport, convenient for travelling and comfortable rooms. Armed with well trained staff who always assist with a smile on their face, never get irritated. They make you feel so at home... This is a place to be...

I stayed here for 1 night on my way to Botswana the next day. My room was large and comfortable, the shower was hot and powerful and the food was very very good. Excellent value for money and they even do free pick ups and drop offs to the airport.

Would happily recommend this place.

My husband and I stayed at Sunrock for 1 night. We knew we had chosen the right place while still at the airport. Arthur came to pick us up and gave us a very warm welcome. The room was simple but had all the basic amenities. Sunrock is located very close to the airport and it was exactly what we were looking for. We were surprised to find out there was also a bar area where Arthur makes a barbecue for his guests. We did miss it as we had other arrangements but would love to have stayed for it and enjoy Arthur and his wife's company. Breakfast is another plus. Fresh and well cooked. We would happily stay at the Sunrock again.

We traveled with friends to safari. The owner Arthur met us at the airport with big welcoming smile. The property is close and convenient. We were asked to join them
for drinks and appetizers in the main gathering area. This started our trip off right and we had a lot of fun with Arthur & Ina that night. The hospitality continued as we stayed three days to gather our group. Nice hot full breakfasts in the morning & a great dinners
at night. These are very genuine people running a family business. We were treated like family and have extended an invitation to them to stay with us on a future trip.
Thanks again Arthur & Ina for making our trip complete.
Go Blue Bulls!
