Reviewed 15 January 2012

I have stayed at Sunrock 5 times while transitting through Johannesburg and have always looked forward to my stay at Sunrock as the owners Ina and Arthur are so welcoming and reliable with the airport pick up. The rooms are always spotlessly clean and the breakfast and dinners are very nice and reasonably priced. Our last visit we stayed for 2 nights. Arthur suggested we go on the Gautrain to Rosebank and then to Nelson Mandela Square for lunch to fill in one of the days.My mobile wasn't working so Ina kindly lent me a mobile, then took us to the Gautrain and picked us up when we returned. You just would not get this kind of personalised service at a large hotel. Arthur and Ina go out of their way to make you feel welcome and relaxed. Definitely THE place to stay close to the airport in Johannesburg.

Sunrock Guesthouse first of all is very conveniently located near the Jo'burg airport and if you need a place to stay before or after your flight, this is definately the place to stay. The others are mostly overpriced hotels. Great rooms, good breakfast, nice pool, very friendly people, free pickups and dropoffs at the airport and the communal guestarea is great and huge with a pool table, darts, braai (BBQ), bar, internet access, seats etc. Safe area, easily reached by car if you rented one. Only negative thing is leaving this place!

I was pleasantly surprised to find that in Johannesburg, airport lodgings go beyond the usual chain-motel options. Sunrock was pretty and comfortable, with nice rooms, a swimming pool, a large and cozy communal area, a generous South Africa-style breakfast (lots of protein!), and friendly and helpful staff. A nice bonus: they'll pick you up at the airport, so you don't have to worry about finding a taxi. There's also a bar, but it was closed when I was there.
Downsides... yes, it is close to the airport, so you'll hear the planes -- not in a super-loud way, but they're there. And if you hoped to explore the neighborhood for a few hours before catching your next flight... there isn't anything to explore in the area.

I stayed at Sunrock at the beginning of a volunteer trip I made to South Africa. As promised, I was met at the airport by Henry and delivered to the guesthouse. I had a lovely dinner, then headed to my room for some sleep. The room was super clean and comfortable. At the end of my trip I had planned to stay with Ina and Arthur again, but my plans changed and they happily refunded my prepaid room charge. Over all a great experience. I highly recommend Sunrock Guesthouse.

We stayed here for 1 night at the beginning of November. Nice place close to the airport. Great garden with pool, nice bar facilities, delicious braai (BBQ) at night with the possibility to meet others. Room was nice, spacious, with nice movie channels.
You really have the feeling that you are part of the family. The owners and staff are so friendly, lovely kids, lovely dogs.

We had an evening flight and could stay in the room all day. They even ordered nice pizza for us for lunch.

Would definetily stay here again and recommend this place to all.
