Reviewed 22 March 2013

My colleague and I were booked into this place by a local company that we were visiting. First things first, this is NOT a large corporate style hotel however if you are looking for a small private hotel with a personal feel then this is to be recommended! It has a true South African feeling and the owner takes personal control in making sure you have everything you need. From airport collections to advice they cannot do enough for you. The rooms were generous and spotlessly clean. Its a very safe place to stay and we felt totally comfortable leaving rooms unlocked!

When it comes to facilities, like I say, this is NOT a large corporate hotel so don't expect a business centre etc but they have a small pool and gardens for relaxing in. The breakfast was personally tailored to our requirements and nothing was too much trouble. If you need dinner they have a sister hotel a short distance away where they have a restaurant. However we ate out with guests each night so didn't try this. One thing that we struggled with was internet access but in a first class display of customer service the owner listened to our suggestion that it could be improved and whilst we were there contacted the IT company and improved the set up! I believe they now run an inclusive of internet rate now which is a great way to show your customers their opinion is valued!

So if the location in Boksburg suits your travel plans and you are looking for a safe, spotlessly clean, very, very friendly small guesthouse/hotel then you will not be disappointed and I recommend this place!! Its true to the South African welcoming style of hospitality!

Room Tip: Definitely ask for a garden room! Although my colleague paid a tiny amount more and got the honeymoo...

Warm welcome and smiling faces greets you at the door. The room has been pre cooled in the smeltering heat. Ice cold bottled water awaits in your room to refresh and quench the thirst. DSTV on flat big screen makes TV viewing sheer pleasure. The king sized bed is a guaranteed good nights rest. Bath room facilities are forst class. Breakfast is the best in the EAST. you can make up your own breakfast by choosing combo's from a list by ticking your wants and needs. Excellently presented with fresh coffee set up the day. The gardens are beautiful and the pool a delight. Tranquil quiet atmosphere to gather your thoughts and recharge your batteries. These people know what there customers want, and then they deliver. Brilliant FIVE XXXXX

I have stayed at the guest house for the past 2 years. It is like a home from home with excellent rooms, friendly and efficient staff and good food. I have no hesitation in recommending this establishment to anyone looking for accommodation on the East Rand.

My wife and i satyed over at the Sunward Park Guesthouse on 20th October 2012 We were firstly amazed at the decor and attention to detail. The room was huge and we felt free and not boxed in. The pool was exceptionally clean and gardens beautiful. Anna was the lady who metus at the door and greeted us like we were long lost friends. She was warm and friendly and respectfully helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. We really felt like VIP's. On our way out to dinner we met the owner Christo Goosen, Friendliness and warmth oooozed out of him as he welcomed us and checked if all our needs were met. Again uncommon in South Africa but very refreshing and uplifting. Our sleep was tranquil and peacefull. We woke up to a smell of Mama's kitchen that attacked the taste buds vigouressly. A scrumpteous breakfast with piping hot coffee and juice was served before we continued our journey. This is an unbelievable experience that my wife and I will never forget. Well done staff and management of Sunward Park Guesthouse.

We arrived in Johannesburg following a eighteen hour flight from Washington DC looking forward to a warm and comfortable welcome given the guest houses rating and good reviews. We arrived at 7.00pm on Sunday 12 august to find the place in darkness. Finally after ringing the bell 8 times the gates opened. There was no one behind the reception desk. We were greeted by a a lady we took to be the night watch person sitting on a chair next to a small wood burner who shoved a breakfast request form at us. We filled this in and we're then shown to our room.

The entire guest house was in darkness and freezing cold ( the temperature outside was 1 Celsius with johannesburg having had snow the week before ) with no heating on anywhere. We thought surely they will have preheated our room at least. No, this was colder than the rest of the house.

We quickly put the heating on the air conditioners on but only one was working. Two of the bedlamps has no lightbulbs, the curtains were hanging off the curtail rails, the main external window did not lock and could be pushed open ( a no no in any large city). The waste bin in the bathroom was full and unemptied from the previous occupants.


We quickly changed and went out for dinner hoping the room would warm up and advised the person on duty of the cold and could they please turn on the main heating as we did not believe a small airconditioner in our room would work if the rest of the guesthouse was unheated.

we returned to find nothing done. We spent the night fully clothed under two duvets.

Innitially we put this event down to an oversight on the part of weeknd staff. however when we politely discusssed this the next morning when reception was manned we were advised they would try to resolve matters but that they were a guest house not a hotel and we could move out if we wished. There was little or no sense of contrition or understanding that they had seroiusly errored in the situation.

in the circumstances and given the attidue we naturally felt complled to move to another hotel close by. We cancelled a weeks stay at the guest house and payed for the one night defective accomodation.
