We stayed at Sunrock for 1 night after arriving in Johannesburg and then 5 weeks later during the day as a transit stop.
On both occasions we were collected by the owners in a comfortable transit vehicle and returned at the appropriate time for our flight. This service was excellent and timely, it's nice to be greeted with a smile by either of the genuinely welcoming hosts. Of note during one trip Arthur took a Maccau red and blue parrot with him which travelled on his shoulder - quite unique.
We arrived on a Saturday night for the first visit just in time for a Saturday night BBQ being steak, ribs and vegetables for a relatively low cost. We are particular with food and found this one of the best honest meals we had consumed during our 5 week African adventure. To qualify this statement we generally stayed at Safari lodges with 5 star resorts and in Egypt some Old Palaces. On our second visit we learned that Arthur and Ina were the owners of a steak house prior to this venture.
The rooms we stayed in varied in size and we would recommend you ask for a larger room. But I must say the cleanliness and crispness of the sheets were again very pleasing and of a superior standard.
I was overwhelmed arriving at Sunrock at night from Australia and experiencing first hand the security precautions in place at Sunrock in response to the environmental issues but this did not distract from our stay.
Other aspets to Sunrock are the internet, swimming pool, bar and pool tables and you easily feel like it's your home mainly due to the owners who easily make you feel at ease.
I cannot find a negative but remember Sunrock is a guest house and embrace it as such. If you want to stay at the Marriot then book in and be prepared for the $500Us per night.
