Fantastic guesthouse! Welcoming, friendly and attentive service throughout, open communal spaces around the spotless pool, honesty bar, and breakfast areas giving this place a unique and cool vibe. Our room was very clean and comfortable with a huge bathroom. Buffet dinner and breakfast were both delicious. We loved it and would 100% recommended it!

This is the third time we have stayed at Sunrock in the last 5 weeks. The innkeepers are wonderful, the staff friendly, the airport pick-up and delivery have been excellent. The meals are also fantastic. Really cannot say enough good about our experiences there. It will definitely be my "home away from home" whenever I am in Jo'burg for an...

Arriving at Johannesburg at 7:30am and our connecting flight to Harare not leaving til 19:40 what were we to do? Sunrock to the rescue! A day of peaceful relaxing by the pool. Lovely spot. Laid back and friendly. From David's warm welcome at the airport (after an hour at passport control) to the 'open bar' system, and James, the owner's...

We booked Sunrock Guesthouse via Expedia for one night after arriving from Australia. After a long flight we arrived in Johannesburg early in the morning and were greeted at the information desk by a driver from Sunrock holding a board with our name on it. The free transfer soon had us at the guesthouse which is located at Kempton Park...

Close to the airport, friendly staff, nice food and a great bar/restaurant area - recommended for an overnight stay when you need to be close to OR Tambo! Airport collection was prompt and comfortable.

Loved this motel styled accommodation near the airport. Free shuttle service and breakfast included makes it great value. Has far more character than the relatively soulless "at airport" options. There is a lovely pool and bar area. Dinner (simple buffet) is served nightly for a modest sum. Would definitely recommend this place if you need to overnight near the airport.

Good basic accomodation near the airport providing free transfers. Area a bit dodgy but felt very safe once there. Lovely managers and great food and pool. We had an early morning flight arrival from Australia so expected to have to wait a while for our room but it was ready very quickly. We also used the free airport transfer to...

Sunrock's location is conveniently near O R Tambo. While the facility is nicely appointed, the surrounding neighborhood is not confidence inspiring. Our room was clean and the bed quite comfortable. If the aircon had been working, it would have been a real delight. The host was thoughtful and pleasant. Breakfast was delicious.

We spent 2 nights at Sunrock to catch up on sleep after a long journey from Los Angeles before our African safari, and it was a wonderful choice. The free airport transfers went smoothly, our room was clean and comfortable, and the owners and staff were helpful and friendly. Sunrock is a nicely landscaped oasis with a guard gate and...
