I stayed here during a recent business trip to South Africa. The lodge is gorgeous and the attention to detail makes you feel welcome and pampered. The setting is tranquil and very tasteful; lots of lovely soft furnishings and the team looking after me were attentive and friendly. Some women may feel concerned travelling on their own in Johannesburg but... More

Beautifully furnished, with large, spacious rooms and common areas for relaxing. We stayed for one night. Really lovely and beautifully decorated property. They have complimentary hot drinks (the instant hot chocolate was the best I'd ever tasted) and an honour bar system. Dinner is also very affordable (although the steak we ordered was over cooked). We were trying to take... More

The grounds of the hotel are beautiful-- it's really well landscaped and has a great area to sit outside. As people who are generally budget travelers who stay in... More

This quiet guesthouse in a beautiful neighborhood of Rosebank is lovely. Everything was so special -- the staff, the room, the grounds and the food. The rooms are spacious and include a private courtyard, some with outdoor shower. There are several pretty outdoor spaces. The security is excellent and the neighborhood is extremely safe. They serve dinner Mon through Thurs... More

Parkwood is a beautiful property, which is tastefully decorated with local art and set within lovely shared garden areas. We stayed at Parkwood on our final 2 days in the area and had the added benefit of being situated in the Rosebank mall area. We enjoyed the large suite for one evening and arranged for a late ( 5 pm... More

Our stay at the Parkwood this weekend was a mercy break for our poor son who is completely overwhelmed by the rigours of a very demanding course of study and who needed a break and some family TLC. To achieve this end we requested a suite, with a lounge where he could study, and where we could gather as a... More
