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. 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

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. The luxury of the rooms is understated and stylish and lacks for nothing. In addition to staying here we also use it as a conferencing... More

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. You would never believe you are in such a large bustling city. The Parkwood is managed by a small, gracious and personable staff that always cares to make your stay a... More

I absolutely love the Parkwood. Rooms are gorgeous and comfortable, staff is friendly and hospitable -- the whole place is an oasis of serenity in the midst of hectic Joburg. No food services after breakfast, but you are a short walk from the Rosebank mall, and Parkwood provides delivery menus.. which make it seem even more like home. I've stayed... More

I regularly travel on business, also to Johannesburg. Following a recommendation by a colleague, I started staying at the Parkwood and have done so for the past three years.
