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

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.

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.

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

The Parkwood was recommended to us by a friend a year ago. This is our third visit and we will never stay anywhere else. The staff are great, discreet, polite and always willing to help.

A tranquil and serene rustic setting, with first-class in-room accommodations (like Jacuzzi bath tubs, outdoor courtyard gardens with shower- in some rooms) all nestled behind private, quiet security walls.
