We only had two nights in Johnnesburg and one stopover. Sunrock was really great in making our stay great and hassle free.
First night: arrived early evening, we took the free shuttle to the guesthouse, checked in, and immediately went out with a guide and car recommended by Sunrock so we were still able to have one night out, go see the local scene, and be in safe hands of course.
Stopover: we stopped over again in J'burg for a layover to Botswana. The Safari would only take small bags so what would we do with our luggage? Sunrock was nice enough (for a friendly fee) pick our our big luggage and store it for us until our return.
Last night: We arrived in the morning and had a full day out and evening by a local driver/ guide. (note: the second guide we got we coursed through the first guide and not through the guest house without thinking and not meaning to divert from the guesthouse and the guide was not as good, bad car and bad directions - make sure to have the guesthouse make the arrangements!) So again, we were able to go around J'berg for a day and safely go around in the evening.
All the staff we met were nice. The owners I think are a family who run the place together. They were very friendly and were very helpful in all that we needed. I would recommend the Sunrock Guest House to any of my friends who would be passing through Johannesburg and need simple yet nice accommodations.
Also knowing the reputation of J'burg I must say that we always felt safe with the recommended guide and while in the Guest house. They seem to have good security on the premises as well.
