“Perfect for an Overnight Layover in Joburg”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 June 2014

The Sunrock Guest House was perfect for our overnight layover in Joburg. The driver met us at the airport and 10 minutes later we were on property enjoying a savanna and relaxing after the long flights. We opted to eat dinner on site and it was delicious and well priced. Very comfortable stay, and we were well rested for our final flight the following morning.

What a gem, great service ,great people and excellent food. Definitely great value for money and the free airport pickup was a wonderful bonus.Highly recommended. The breakfast was fantastic and the evening meal was the best steak that I have eaten in years

Our experience with this hotel was similar to the other positive reviews here. The airport pickup was much appreciated, although there was quite a delay because the van had just left the airport with other guests when we called and then when the van returned the asst. manager had trouble locating us in the terminal. Regardless, the rooms were clean and quiet. Supper and breakfast were good with ample quantities. WiFi was a little spotty in our rooms, but we got that issue straightened out. This is certainly a very convenient location for travelers arriving or departing from Johannesburg's O.R. Tambo airport.

We stayed here for one night between the long flight from North America and the start of a three week trip through South Africa. The guest house is quiet and restful and the pool is inviting. The rooms are neat and clean and the beds are amazingly comfortable. The free shuttle to the airport works well. The lodging includes breakfast but dinner is an extra (reasonably priced). There are no lunch facilities but pizza or salad can be ordered in from a local restaurant if desired. Note this is a guest hotel (sort of motel) and not a hotel. The owner and his family live on premises and are very welcoming and helpful people. The meals provided by the guest house are home cooked and excellent. This is good value for money. If you don't arrive by car, you are sort of limited to staying in the guest house as the area around it is not really tourist friendly.

Of the 546 tenants who have submitted reviews it is clear that the 5 who rated Sunrock as terrible must have come from another planet, especially considering that a stagering 517 (96%) of the reviews fall into the very good and excellent categories. Sure, the guesthouse is located in an area which could be percieved to be dodgy, but the reviews don't suggest that there have been any incidents of a security nature within the perimiter of Sunrock.
My wife and i stayed at Sunrock on 22 May 2014 before catching an early morning flight to Tanzania the next morning. We were warmly welcomed at reception and found Ina and her staff to be extemely freindly and helpful.
Our room, whilst basic, was neat clean and comfortable and satisfied most of our needs. A small fridge and hairdryer would be useful additions.
The dinner and breakfast were good and greatly appreciated, as was the honesty bar.
We arranged to leave our car at thev guest house for a nominal fee and made use of the free airport shuttle service to drop us off on thev Friday morning and to collect us again on the monday morning. These transfers occured seamlessly and we enjoyed the great sense of humour of a very freindly driver.
I would certainly recommend Sunrock to travellers flying in late or flying out early for a convenient shuttle service and stayover. I will certainly use Sunrock again. Thanks to Ina and staff for a great experiece.
