We could not have been happier with our rooms and with the hospitality. The dinner was wonderful, all while eating under a full-size giraffe in the bar/restaurant area. We were picked up and dropped at the airport, which was wonderful.

I traveled to South Africa to meet up with a group and arrived a few days early. At Sunrock I could rest in a quiet, serene room, get plenty of sleep, eat very delicious home cooked meals, exchange money, and basically get prepared for my group travel. Any of the managers were helpfultimate with information about anything I needed. The...

Started our trip to South Africa by spending a couple nights here (this is like my 5th time staying at SunRock). They arranged a private driver for Lion Park Tour (named Charles) and we spent a lovely day including a mini safari and cat interactions with lion Cubs and cheetah. Hotel staff are always professional and friendly, clean rooms, and...

If you visit Johannesburg and you are in need of a hotel near the airport, this is the place for you. I was introduced to this lovely hotel in 2014 and was pleased to have the opportunity to stay here again. The rooms are basic but clean and comfortable. Ina and her staff are professional, friendly, and seem to truly...

Our 3rd separate night here. Staff is great. Heather is very accommodating, professional & friendly. Twanette is great & fun to talk with. She makes you feel like you're in a B&B & she's the owner & you're sitting in her living room having a conversation. Was surprised that we were in the expensive room on May 1st till I...

1) the walls are covered with taxidermied animal heads shot for sport by the owner's husband. There's even a full-size taxidermied giraffe. Disgusting and brutish! 2) it's in a dangerous location. 3) the doors to the tiny rooms are just sliding glass doors that affront the gravel driveway. Noisy and unsafe. Not appropriate for single women travelers. 4) the bathroom...

A nicely revamped guest house with friendly staff. Suggest the sell snacks on the premises like crisps and chocolates. Rooms are comfortable. Easy access to airport. The new wing is impressive and has a great vibe with gym, dining and great bar facilities. Safety was also good.

Our stay at Sunrock was the perfect start to our holiday. The setting is peaceful with a lovely pool area and a wonderful games room area. The Harley Davidson theme in the dining room/games room is really something. The meals were great and the service fantastic. I would recommend this to all travellers.
