“nice and very convenient to the airport”
Reviewed 18 August 2014

We had a long layover so needed lodging for the night. The hotel driver was at the airport when we landed and took us directly to the clean, comfortable, well priced hotel. The staff is especially kind and helpful - I had to make a sudden trip to the ER and the owner drive me to the hospital and waited for my release. That alone is quite exceptional. They offer a home cooked dinner which is good and also reasonably priced.

Was very happy with Sunrock as a respite during my overnight layover between Washington DC and Lilongwe Malawi. Service was incredible - from the shuttle driver to the front desk. Lamb curry dinner was tasty!

Very convenient to the airport. Enjoyed a lovely and reasonably priced dinner and a really delicious breakfast that was included in the price. The Bed and Breakfast is located in a compound with locked gates. We four ladies felt very safe.

Stayed here for two nights in July and found it completely satisfactory and reasonably priced. Was driving so didn't make use of the airport pick-up service. Breakfast was hearty and dinner is offered. The dining and lounge area make you feel that you're staying at an Afrikaner home, with Biblical quotes in Afrikaans hanging on the walls and a large stuffed porcupine on the top of a bookcase. The girls who handled us were friendly and very competent, and the same goes for meal staff. It can get a bit chilly at night in July in J'burg, but the combination of an energy-efficient electrical heater or two in the room, warm covers, and a hot shower should satisfy all but the fussiest of guests.

On the only previous occasion that we had to stay at Oliver Tambo airport for an early morning flight we stayed at the Intercontinental and paid a fortune. After finding the Sunrock guesthouse we won't be doing that again.

We had driven nearly all day from the Kruger NP area and arrived at dusk after driving through a very rough industrial area near the airport. A large gate opened when we announced ourselves outside and after entering we were immediately welcomed by one of the 3 young ladies who were running the guesthouse.

Inside the gate was an informal, extremely friendly haven.with secure parking, nice rooms, an "honesty" bar and a dining room where all the guests eat together at the same time. For dog lovers who are missing their pets there is Sissi, a small terrier who jumps up on laps at the first invitation and the somewhat larger Fatty whose jumping days are probably over but who still likes being petted.

This guesthouse was so nice that we now know that we can plan future trips to South Africa with late night arrivals or early morning departures from Oliver Tambo and not have to worry about where we are going to stay.

Room Tip: The guesthouse is very close to the airport and there is occasional noise from evening and morning t...

the hotel is near to the airport. However, the staff is ready to make your way to downtown easy (with a driver to take (and pick up) you to (from) the train station, cel phone for the guests, etc). The breakfast is good. The room is comfortable (unless it is really cold outside, because it has only one heater).

We found Sunrock to be just right for the first night of our trip and we'll stay there again the last night. Easy pick up from the airport and short transport. The property is gated and secure. The drinks and buffet dinner and breakfast were family style and well presented. The staff was warm and helpful. The only reason for a 4 was that the room was a bit tired. The bed was fine and everything worked .... its just older and could use a facelift. Still, we really liked Heather, Lewis and staff: witness, we're going back! Marty and Lynnie Erbaugh, USA
