Visiting South Africa after many years of absence we knew exactly where we were heading for our Johburg stopover, and Sunninghill Guest Lodge is still every bit the beauty it always was! Thank you, gorgeous people, for a warm welcome and a cosy stay!

I can definitely recommend staying at Sunninghill Guest Lodge - a true GEM in the midst of the beautiful tranquil suburb of Sunninghill. My room was spacious and comfortable, spotlessly clean with a lovely view of the green garden, patio and swimming pool. The customer service received was outstanding - all the staff I dealt with really went above and beyond to ensure my stay was a 5 star experience. Breakfast options were great and they really cater for a wide variety of tastes and requests. The friendly staff were always nearby to answer any questions, and had fantastic suggestions on places to dine, shuttle services, and any other services one may need whilst travelling. So I really recommend staying here if you're looking for a fantastic setting with the most friendly and efficient staff, really getting great value for money - you will not regret booking here !

PLEASE BEWARE OF THIS PLACE! We stayed here during our visit to Joburg, while everything at the first glance went well, they double charged us on our credit card without consent or informing us. When we went to settle the remainder payment through cash, they accepted the cash without telling us that they had already charged our credit card. Upon return to our home country when we brought this issue to their notice they kept saying they will hold it as credit for our next visit, as if we were going to make it back again anytime soon. The correspondence was extremely rude and I am still in dispute with my bank for this amount. Charging a credit card without prior permission or knowledge and then accepting cash for the same booking, refusal to help with reimbursement for the same! I am appalled at this behavior. PLEASE BEWARE UNLESS YOU WANT TO LOSE YOUR MONEY

Response from Ann Mckerrell, Owner at Sunninghill Guest Lodge
Responded 1 week ago
Dear Shruti, you are welcome to the camera footage of the conversations my reception staff had with you as well as my communications with the bank and all relevant financial documents which proves, without a shadow of a doubt that the ZAR 1676-00 you accused us of stealing from you was not. I have wasted so much time with this and hope you can find someone to explain to you how it works when you use an online travel agent, as I certainly have tried but failed.

The service that I got was horrible. There was no one to help me with luggage as I was being taken to my room. And later in the evening when I requested for an adaptor, the manager's attitude was pathetic. I got so waked up that I had to leave for another more friendly guesthouse. I will never again go to this guest house. The room that I was allocated was average, the floor has no carpet and was cold in this cold weather. The mattress felt like foam and not spring. Foam mattress is not ideal for a guesthouse or lodge. This is my two cents.

Arriving at the Guest Lodge our perception was truly on the negative and this was caused by our previous experiences in Cape Town. The staff members deserve an award, wow! I truly do not have any words. Friendly, servicing with a smile, helpful and truly go beyond the call of duty. A male by the name of Bongani, God bless his heart, he represented the Accommodation sector and Sunninghill Guest Lodge with so much passion and dedication. Thank you so much for the experience, I am sure coming back!.

This is a fantastic place to stay and is my home away from home. I have visited 5-8 times in the last year and is very conveniently located. I like that I can travel light and use washing services! The staff and owner are amazing and make each stay a great experience.

My parents just stayed there before and after a surgery at a hospital nearby. They loved their stay and I am so grateful to the owner. During their stay they saw their 50th wedding anniversary, alone amidst troubling circumstances. Margaret Ann made such a fuss of them with dinner, drinks and more. During these Covid times when families are apart these are the occasions that are emotionally the hardest. Margaret Ann knew that and made my parents feel very welcome and provided them an opportunity to acknowledge and celebrate their incredible milestone. She did it of her own accord, which was just amazing and I can't thank her more. This guest lodge puts customers first. I highly recommend them. Enrico
