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

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

I normally stay in Marriott family hotels and am well looked after. I was recently in South Africa on business and my client there recommended two luxury guest house/lodges. This one and another in Durban. What a revelation, these places are great. Understated luxury, wonderful relaxed garden setting, fully equipped and spacious rooms. Very low key but efficient service. I... More

This is a property that quietly exudes luxury. Hidden behind a high wall with attentive and friendly security men who appear out of nowhere to welcome you and open the gate, it is an elegant oasis in true Johannesburg style. The rooms are large and beautifully appointed, with top of the line comfort beds and bathrooms offering bath and shower... More

I regularly stay at the Parkwood which I find particularly well situated with easy access to most parts of Johannesburg. The rooms are spacious and well appointed and have everything that both business people and tourists would require. The finishes are of a high quality and the linen is super. The design gives a level of privacy although the common... More
