This is a really delightful boutique hotel in a quiet street but within walking distance from the trendy Rosebank Mall and Gautrain station. Access to the CBD, Santon or the airport is easy and quick. The rooms are all spacious with big bathrooms and each with their own little courtyard. The beds are super comfortable with crisp quality linen. The... More

The Parkwood Boutique Hotel is an island of tranquility and understated luxury and is situated in the heart of the bustling city. The security and and staff are all top notch and I regularly recommend it to friends and colleagues. In my view it is peerless in JHB.

We stayed in Joburg for 2 nights after a 2-week vacation in Seychelles, due to connection flights. At first we thought it would be an ok experience, but wow, Parkwood really surprised us. It's a perfect 5* guest house. Our room was incredibly spacious, with lovely furniture and decorations, heated floor, gigantic wardrobe, spacious bath tub, 2 sinks, and the... More

We spent our last 3 nights of our 7 week African holiday. The location is very good. Quiet, yet a comfortable walk to the shopping mall where great food was available. Nice area to stay, felt very safe, with security guards 24/7. Rooms were larger than expected and everything was to perfection. Breakfast was superb and healthy options available.

The Parkwood hotel is very clean and private. The location is next to CBD. The rooms are very spacious and well appointed ( Jacuzzi bath tube). Parking space is safe and enough. The breakfast was in high quality and big choice. The only down fall would be that there are no open restaurant's on Sundays nearby because they not serve... More

Impeccably run with great rooms. I had the standard room which was superb - spacious, well equipped and very good value. Nice place to get back to at end of day and recharge batteries. Probably the best things are the peaceful atmosphere, service and the breakfast - this is something they really get right and it's the perfect start to... More

We stayed here our last 2 nights in Africa and it was perfect. Large, quiet, modern, tasteful rooms; very reasonable prices at the restaurant and great food; short walk to a very large mall with shops and restaurants; private. It's a cross between a B & B and a small hotel.

A lovely gem recommended by business colleagues. Spacious rooms, tastefully decorated, all with garden access. Two lap pools, even a small well equipped gym, friendly staff, luxury mall nearby, this was an excellent choice for us. Note that dinner is not always available as the Parkwood is primarily an upscale bnb.

We enjoyed our three days at the Parkwood boutique hotel very much. The rooms are beautiful decorated, with a tasteful style. The lounge, the terrace, the garden are absolutly lovely. It is a wonderful oasis. The owners care a lot to make the stay enjoyable. The Parkwood hotel is really a five star hotel!
