“The Only Place I'll Now Stay in Johannesburg”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2007

This property for only the discerning traveler who gets a real treat in finding boutique hotels that cater to each individual guest in a unique and deliberate sort of way.

I stumbled upon the Parkwood by sheer accident, and now I couldn't happier that I did since it is now the only place I will stay in Johannesburg!

Dean, Sarah, and their staff take care of you hand and foot! Plus when you arrive, there's no such thing as fretting over "check-in." You're just escorted to your room and on your happy merry way from there. Plus breakfast (which is included) in the morning is divine!

I can't recommend this place enough!
