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

If you like (surprisingly) large rooms with hip cool bathrooms open plan to the bedroom, then this is the place for you. If you need privacy then the 2nd outside shower that my room had will help. No room service, but well stocked mini-bar.

I chose to stay at The Parkwood when I am in Joburg. Its perfect, close to amenities, but quiet and tranquil. The rooms are large, very tastefully decorated and most have an outside shower which is wonderful on hot summers days. The pool and Lounge areas are beautiful and just beautiful. The staff are friendly and always so very helpful.... More

We have just returned from a weekend in JNB and stayed at the Parkwood Boutique Hotel which left us both without any doubts as to where we will be staying in the future. The rooms are beautifully decorated, each being unique, one almost has the feeling you are in a private secluded getaway yet conveniently situated close to Rosebank and... More

Beautifully decorated, spacious and contemporary but with attitude, The Parkwood is efficiently run yet warm and welcoming. Simply the best Boutique Hotel for both business trips and family stays in Johannesburg. It is conveniently situated close to Oxford Road, the M1 and Jan Smuts and owned by a talented, innovative couple who keep their eye on every detail but are... More

Excellent experience. Beautiful property. Our family of 5 stayed here on arrival from the states and it was a divine treat. We loved each of the three rooms, the lounges and breakfast area.
