Sunrock goes out of their way to make you feel safe especially with the Coronavirus going around. Room gets sanitized and even the vehicle's gets sanitized. The food is wonderful and the atmosphere makes you feel right at home. We will definitely be staying at Sunrock soon.

I stayed here for one night with my wife and two college-age children before heading off to Kruger the next day. Our driver, arranged by Sunrock, was waiting for us upon our arrival at the airport. Our room was very comfortable. Buffet dinner was good and reasonably priced, although the serving time window is only about 90 minutes. Nice pool and lounge area, although we did not take the time to use it. Breakfast had good options. It's probably not a place to spend multiple nights because there appeared to be little that could be safely done in the neighboring area. But Sunrock does feel like an oasis and very secure. It's a great choice if you're simply looking for convenience to the airport.

Excellent Hotel to stay if your waiting for your flight. Staff has a great shuttle service to and from the airport. Breakfast is great. They provide you a full standard breakfast. Rooms are small, but clean and all functioning properly. No bottle water is provided, so you will have to purchase or bring your own bottle water. The staff is friendly and accommodating. When I fly back to Johannesburg I would definitely book this place.

How more people have not passed comment on the terrible location is odd, we were warned by reception staff to not leave the guest house as the streets outside were unsafe, there was gunfire outside on the night we stayed.
Our room had no aircon.
There was some sort of a kitchen attached to the bathroom, so our bathroom smelt of cooking.
The kitchen extractor fans were on until after 10pm even though the kitchen wasn't open. There was loud music and disco lights around the pool. We complained to staff and were told to switch the telly on to cover up the noise!!
The curtains didn't black out the lights from around the pool.
The shower, bath and sink seals were all black with mould.
Breakfast was ok apart from the cold coffee.
There are other places as close to the airport that are much nicer for the same price.
If you get an uber to anywhere, make sure you use uber black and request a cool car as we had 2 rides in boiling hot, unsafe tiny little cars.

We have stayed at the Sunrock Guesthouse twice in the last week. Very convenient for the airport. A good value option if you are travelling as three adults in the same family and don’t want to have to buy 2 rooms.

The room was spotlessly clean and contained everything you might need except a safe, which we would have preferred to have. The furnishing were a little tired but the beds were comfy and we all slept well. The bathroom was spacious and light and shower powerful. There isn’t any air conditioning and our ceiling fan mysteriously started and stopped working a couple of times in the middle of the night as did the light....

The common areas included a bar, gym and lovely, well maintained pool.

I would agree with other reviewers the neighbourhood didn’t feel particularly safe but we have no real evidence to back that statement up as we never experienced anything bad, the guesthouse however has great security.

The service we received from the reception team was exceptional, from airport pick ups to late checkout. Laundry service top class. Massage - a 100% must if you are staying. Thank you all.

In summary, if you don’t want to stay in (or fancy a change) a large airport hotel chain (we had 1 night at the Holiday Inn near the airport and the Sunrock was much nicer), then the Sunrock is a great choice and deserves its good TA reviews.

We were looking for a family-friendly place to stop with our family on the way back to the airport. After reading lots of reviews we settled on this place and booked the two bedroomed apartment for one night and a family day room for the next day for our evening flight.
Driving into the area we were caught in a bad storm but as we drove through the gates we entered into the beautiful grounds and gardens. The place is kept immaculately and is a credit to the grounds people. Our apartment was great - plenty of room for us to chill and recharge after our safari. We drank in the bar and my husband and son played pool and table tennis. We opted to order pizza to be delivered as the wonderful food on offer wasn't entirely to the teenagers' taste - their issue not the guesthouse. There was a bit of a faff with the pizza delivery because the pizza place was apparently very busy but we got it before we went to bed lol. Breakfast was lovely with plenty of choice. We enjoyed our stay and were grateful to rest before our overnight flight back home.

My three daughters and I stayed here before and after our trip to Kruger National Park. We flew in and out of Johannesburg's OR Tambo airport, which is near this hotel, and the location worked well for our safari transfer. This hotel is charming. It is very well maintained and has a beautiful garden/pool area. The rooms are clean and modern. We were able to sleep four persons in twin beds in one room comfortably. They have well-placed and numerous electrical outlets, which I really appreciated given the amount of electronics that travels with a family with teenagers. The staff was marvelous. So friendly and helpful. They were kind to my children and graciously answered all of our travel-related questions, helped us order food, and coordinated with our safari operator. The free shuttle to and from the airport worked well. They use the bus terminal just outside the airport, and they were easy to find and communicated with us in advance of arrival to provide instructions and contact information. When we arrived, we learned that they offer spa services, including massages at very reasonable prices, which were appreciated greatly after a long international flight. Security was a major concern for me. This hotel has a wall around it, security cameras, and a security gate that is monitored by staff. I felt comfortable enough to sleep with the windows wide open in a ground-floor room.

Sunrock Guesthouse is absolutely delightful. We overnighted two separate times on our recent visit to South Africa. The second time I really looked forward to being there. It's like a destination in itself. They communicated easily and smoothly with us to co-ordinate our pick up at the airport. Initially we were concerned that their pick up point was outside the airport building but that soon concern disappeared as it was a 2 minute walk through a very public walkway to the Southern Sun bus depot. Very easy to find.
The guesthouse is close to the airport which makes it the perfect spot. After very long flights no one wants to grind through traffic for an hour. The area around the guesthouse is sketchy but as soon as one enters the security gates of the compound one feels a sense of safety. It is truly an oasis. Within minutes of our arrival we were in our bathing suits, sitting by their lovely pool in a beautifully kept garden enjoying some South African wine.
A full hot breakfast with bacon, sausage, eggs of any kind, fruit, a selection of breads, including an evilly divine bacony pastry, cold cuts cheeses, all kinds of jams and preserves, yoghurt with toppings, cereal etc. etc. is included. Also a very delicious dinner all enjoyed with a view of the garden and pool. There is wine, beer & other alcohols available on the honour system. For lunch we door dashed really good pizza from a nearby restaurant without a hitch.
We used their laundry service which was speedy and very reasonably priced.
They have a well equipped gym if you would like to work out some kinks after a flight and a pool table.The general ambience is relaxing.
The rooms are spotless and very comfortable with all the amenities one would need, including a hairdryer. The Wifi is fast. They also provide a coffee station in each room which I always really appreciate. Each is room is large with seating, a separate large bathroom area with both bath and shower, a desk and each room exits onto the garden which is teeming with song birds.
The staff are wonderful, without being obtrusive and overall I would not hesitate to book at this guesthouse again.

I can't even explain how helpful Jennifer (manager) was during my stay! I had issues with my flight and she helped me handle it, even helped with the Covid testing and everything like that!

First, I arrived at 4am so I immediately had an early check in. I emailed Jennifer (on their website) in advance and she said it was no problem to pick me up at the airport that early and I wouldn't be charged extra for the extra hours prior to checking in. She gave me her phone number to use via whatsapp and it was so easy.

I came from the US so was completely exhausted. She even told us we could partake in the breakfast (for an additional fee) because we arrived early. I had to go back to the airport to figure out flight issues and Jennifer graciously drove me there and back (for an additional fee).

The hotel itself was fine! No issues at all! The bed was comfy, I took a bath which was lovely, the food was wonderful and we bought dinner as well. The shower could use an upgrade but thats no big deal. It was so tall that the hot water felt not-as-hot by the time it hit my body. Probably another winter thing.

Jennifer had Travac come to do my covid test for me for my flight the next day which was 750 rand (cheap) and I was able to get the results printed from her before I left.

We played billiards, had some drinks, and would've gone into the pool had it been warm (May = winter). I suggest this spot 100% for those on a budget and needing some local flair! Oh and their curio shop had some wonderful items!

You will be advised exactly where the shuttle bus will pick you up after you leave the International arrivals terminal. You should contact them after arrival at OR Tambo and after you have got your luggage. They do track the flights coming in. Hope this helps
