“Pleasant stay close to OR Tambo (Jo'burg) airport”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 November 2013

We stayed at Sunrock GH only one night when passing through Jo’burg, but we will definitely stay there the next time we’re in the vicinity. Their driver Louis was waiting to pick us up, and he had to get up early the next morning to take us back to the airport ¬– perhaps a 10-minute drive. When we first arrived at Sunrock, I had some misgivings, because it appears to be a midrange-quality American motel from the outside. However, the room was clean, quite spacious, pleasantly decorated, and had many useful amenities. The proprietors were also very pleasant and cheerful, although they were quite busy apparently with a full house. The optional dinner buffet was also worthwhile. While it could not be described as “fine dining”, it was good, and there was an enormous amount of food (should you have teenaged boys needing to go back for additional helpings).

Sunrock is very well located to the airport. Our flight was leaving very early in the morning so we needed a place close to the airport. Very convenient location. Guesthouse had driver pick us up and return to the airport included in cost of room. Rooms very clean and comfortable....great for short stay.

I booked Sunrock after reading great reviews on trip advisor. The value compared to other airport close lodging options is phenomenal. Ina communicated throughout the weeks leading up to my trip and delivered on all that was promised. Our driver was there waiting as we cleared customs, and assisted with luggage. I had left some medicine behind so he found a 24 hour pharmacy close to the guesthouse and waited as I got my medications.

The accommodations themselves are basic but clean and comfortable. Even though it is airport close the aircraft noise is not an issue.

The breakfast is amazing with made to order egg dishes, a variety of yogurts, pastries, and fruits.

We travelled by car from Hoedspruit and arrived to find a cold security gate facing us, but don't be fooled as they open up to the warmest hospitality. While the rooms are not your 5 star they are clean and comfortable. We enjoyed a nice buffet dinner, had a good nights sleep and enjoyed a free taxi transfer to the airport for our early flight to Mauritius. I must say the taxi driver was extremely well presented and courteous, some other companies could take a lesson from this transfer provider.

We were only in Johannesburg briefly on a layover between our flight from the states and the flight the next morning to Richards Bay. For such a short trip, we couldn't have picket a better place. Just minutes away from OR Tambo, it's a quiet little oasis just off the highway. The owners and staff are wonderful. Small but perfectly adequate rooms, great breakfast, and a good value for dinner as well. As many of the other guests there are also on quick layovers, the place has a backpacker/hostel kind of vibe. It's a great place to relax and mingle with fellow travelers before heading back out to the airport.

We had to spend a night in Johannesburg to catch an overnight flight and could not have picked a better place. Ina and her husband are the friendliest, kindest and most hospitable hosts ever! The home-cooked dinner they serve is one of the most delicious barbecues i've ever tasted. I would definitely go back.
