Reviewed 13 January 2014

I can recomment the Sunrock Guesthouse with its very friendly people, the good rooms, the nice food, the excellent shuttle service, the short distance to airport, the nice dogs, the honesty bar. Will book again when on a stop-over in Joburg.

This place is fabulous as it is close to the airport, the hosts, Ina and Arthur, were most hospitable and for the price, its bang for your buck! The rooms are a little dated, but spotlessly clean. And the bed, super comfy.
The hotel offers a free airport shuttle, we had to wait maybe twenty minutes for our driver, but that gave us a chance to freshen up and get some money from the ATM. We were also dropped at our car rental company for free.
The guesthouse was going through some renovations, the pool/bar/gazebo area was being built due to recent fire, but will be amazing when completed. We weren’t disturbed by any noise or workmen.
For 100R per person, the owners put on a sensational buffer dinner. We had chicken snitzel and heaps of different salads. Ina and Arthur previously ran restaurants, so they defiantly know what they are doing.
For a small price, we were able to use their laundry.
We used their driver, Louis, and visited the Apartheid museum, which is a must see in Jo’berg.
We have no hesitation recommending this place and can’t wait to return to use their pool facilities. This place is perfect for a quick stopover before heading to Kruger.

We chose Sunrock because we saw a recommendation in the S. African travel magazine GetAway and we were not disappointed. It has a free shuttle to the airport which was efficient and timely and it is very close to Oliver Tambo airport. The rooms are spacious and clean. There is also a very inviting pool which we unfortunately did not get to use. Most importantly while we were there it was run by Heather who was helpful and knowledgeable and an huge asset to customers. This is a great place to stay as an overnight stop for those on a budget

My son and I stayed at the Sunrock Guest House 4th to 8th January 2014. We had a great time - the staff are very very helpful - special thanks to Heather for being a fantastic host and also to Lewis who chauffeured us around (not just the airport) and to Lloyd who cooked some fabulous meals - Both breakfast and Dinner. My Son will be studying in SA for 12 months and this guesthouse proved to be a great place to chill out and become acclimatised to the SA weather before he headed north to the bush. Facilities include well stocked bar, heated swimming pool and a menagerie of wildlife to keep you occupied (a parrot and a few very friendly dogs (small, medium & fat)). The other guests were all extremely friendly too - all in all a perfect Oasis - so to Heather, Lewis and Lloyd I hope this finds you all well and we will see you all again- William & Charles

Our family stayed at Sunrock GuestHouse on Friday 3/1/2014- prior to our flight back to the UK on Saturday. Heather was superb - so very helpful and friendly, our dinner delicious- the steak the best we've had for a long time, the room comfortable and adequate and breakfast nicely prepared.
The garden is beautiful, serene and peaceful, the dogs and parrot make it a home from home.
We highly recommend this guest house as it is around the corner from the airport and down the road from some good shopping malls for last minute purchases.
Thank you for your excellent service - we'll certainly be back.
Best wishes to you all for 2014

We stayed her twice when we had short stops at the airport. The proximity to the airport is fantastic and the airport shuttle is also great. We slept well both nights we slept here. One night we had a fantastic bathtub and dual shower. Loved it- very nice after a long safari. The food is amazing- we enjoyed having a nice, home cooked meal after traveling. The staff is very friendly. They are close to a little shopping mart that we were able to walk to grab snacks. I'd definitely stay again and pick this over other locations.

A great start to our trip to South Africa. There is a dining room where they serve dinner which was one of the best steaks I have ever had. It was like eating in someones dining room and had a great atmosphere.
