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!

I always stay in the Parkwood in Johannesburg. It's intimate yet professional, peaceful and spacious and small details make it feel like home such as great linen, a consistent warm welcome and tasty healthy food. This is a team of people who really care about your experience.

Lovely to spend time away from home in a peaceful and spacious setting. With comfortable beds, great linen and generously spacious rooms, staying here makes being away from home a whole lot more enjoyable. Thanks to Nicky and Dean, and all the friendly staff who make this space so welcoming.

I only stay at the Parkwood when I come up to Joburg for work. It has always been a favourite of mine; with its tranquil garden, refreshing swimming pools and luxurious rooms. The breakfasts are delicious and the position is walking distance from the Rosebank Mall and the Gautrain station. I would highly recommend the Parkwood for business trips, or... More

The Parkwood offered a very relaxing stay. Tucked away in a quiet neighborhood, with spacious rooms and lovely public areas where you can sit and read a book or just relax. Friendly owners. A perfect place to unwind.

Check-in was a breeze and by very friendly staff. Room 8 was more than adequate for a 1 night stay and I can highly recommend dining in. The food was fantastic (although order asap after arrival otherwise your 1st choice may not be available as was the case with my wife) - highly efficient waiting staff and the food was... More

Room 6 was spacious with its own internal courtyard garden. I did not see any of the other rooms but I was told they were all individually decorated and different one from the other. Bedroom and main areas were well decorated. Very comfortable bed with fine linen and comfortable pillows. Bathroom was equipped with plenty of fluffy towels, shampoo, soaps... More

A uniquely relaxing and welcoming oasis within easy walking distance from the Rosebank offices and shops... Having stayed here for half a year in 2012, arriving at the Parkwood feels like coming home. Owners and staff are the most friendly and accomodating one could wish for. The rooms are spacy and quiet, the two main terraces are the perfect place... More
