Outstanding refined boutique hotel. Beautiful and very comfortable room and bathroom. They go the extra mile to make your stay perfect. Very well located in a very nice neighborhood near mall and speed train station. Taxis arranged and great advices to enjoy Joeburg. No doubt it will always be our place in that city.

A most delightful place to stay - central to everything but still quiet. The rooms are delightful and the breakfast first class. A fully stocked honour bar in both bedroom and lounge is a lovely change from having to summon a waiter each time. We will definitely stay there in the future.

Our stay at the Parkwood with its flowering trees, pools, lounging areas and gracious hospitality brought our three and a half weeks in South Africa to a lovely close. The attentive staff at breakfast easily accommodated my wife's dairy allergy; and food was varied, healthy, delicious with plenty of choice. It's a short, pleasant, daytime walk to the Rosebank mall... More

We are so glad to have been able to contribute to the whole feel of your holiday in South Africa! We were thrilled to have had a spare room to offer for your late afternoon ' freshen up' before your long flight home as we really understand the value of these things having travelled quite a bit ourselves!

The Parkwood is a beautiful guest house with everything you might expect: peaceful, well-appointed, friendly staff, secure, excellent service. It's not cheap. And while it's not far from the Gautrain station in Rosebank (7-10 minute walk), it's not the kind of walk you'd do after dark. But, the rooms are comfortable, spacious and the breakfast excellent. Free wifi and a... More

I flew into Joburg airport and took the Gautrain to Rosebank. The owners of the hotel were nice enough to fetch me from the train station and get me settled and checked into my room. There is a tasteful menu of dinner and dessert items available for dining in the dining room or in your suite. Perfect breakfast ( granola,... More

I arrived in Johannesburg to a fantastic greeting and was from then on treated like royalty. Both the staff and the room was amazing. I couldn't have asked for anything better! The food in the morning was fantastic as were the dinners at night and the fact that even though we were in the middle of Johannesburg, there was absolute... More

The Parkwood is a tastefully appointed B&B in the Parkwood neighborhood in Johannesburg. The small grounds are manicured, and the common areas bright and inviting. The rooms are spacious. The separate shower and large tub for bubble baths were a treat. The bed was extremely comfortable, and the open wifi signal was strong, allowing Skype phone calls and e-mail to... More

I had to find alternative accommodation in Johannesburg and the Parkwood was recommended to me. What a delightful find! I stayed in a standard room as this was what they had available for the full duration of my stay. It is modern, comfortable and quite luxurious without being pretentious. The staff are wonderful and really go out of their way... More

We are thrilled that you enjoyed your stay and have written such a constructive and helpful review! We sincerely apologise for the wifi glitch but were happy to be alerted to it as a switch to that router had tripped and we may otherwise not have been aware. We hope to have you stay with us in the future ! More

I usually stay in Joburg on business, and have stayed in plenty of the hotels/guest houses around this area. The location is perfect. I found the people very friendly, the room and dining area clean and luxurious. The grounds are well maintained, and even though it was a little outside of my usual on-business budget, it was worth it, especially... More
