“WOW”
Reviewed 29 July 2014

Wow! This place is as good as everyone says. Being a guesthouse, the rooms are somewhat basic but quite adequate. The people who run the place, Art and Ina Johnson, are more than helpful. An employee named Louis picked us up at the airport. When a tour company representative that was also to meet us to give us vouchers for the rest of our trip failed to show up, Louis called for us, and then Ina took over and straightened it all out for us. She also showed us how to get around Johannesburg. They were extremely helpful. We ate dinner there and it was quite good and very reasonable. Overall, this is an outstanding B & B and you would do well to stay here if you are in Johannesburg.

I am a travel agent and booked the Sunrock Guesthouse for our overnight layover on our way to Namibia. Our group of 7 was totally satisfied with all aspects of our stay: prompt pickup at Tambo, clean accommodations, pleasant staff and good food. It was very easy to work with them via email prior to our stay. I plan on booking with them again for my trip next year.

We stay by Sunrock guesthouse for two nights and we found it very good with pleasant and friendly people.
The rooms were clean and well organized and the food was great.
No problem with pick up at the airport and to the nearest subway station to go visit Johannesburg.
They have accepted corrections in our booking (wrong month) with no charge.
I could well suggest them for Johannesburg nights.
Thank you,
Vanni Belli

the sunrock guesthouse in Johannesburg's Kempton park should not really be called a "guesthouse."

"Guesthome" would be the more appropriate description.

the owners, ina and her husband, Arthur, attended to their guests like they were friends spending the night in their home.

rooms were spacious and clean and the couple made sure that there was somebody up and about to bring guests to the airport even at 4 o'clock in the morning.

great and safe place to stay.

Friendly reception, good shuttle to en from airport, breakfast could be beter (some fresh fruits, was rather limited). Very nice rooms and excellent beds. Location is good after late arrival or before early departure from airport.

Sunrock Guest House was a lovely place to stay and I'd highly recommend it, especially to anyone on a budget. They'll pick you up from the airport and deliver you back there as well. It's winter now and it was chilly in the room. That was my only complaint! The staff were friendly and helpful and I enjoyed meeting other guests at meal times.
