Enjoyed my stay at the Parkwood in late March. Located in a quiet residential neighborhood in Johannesburg, it is truly an oasis in the city. The property is beautiful, well-maintained, and within walking distance to a major shopping district and the Gautrain. My room was spotless and the bed was incredibly comfortable. Minibar was plentiful, reasonable, and even stocked with...

The Parkwood is a small, peaceful hotel consisting of a series of very elegant and comfortable rooms built around an interconnecting garden with pools and fountains that add to the calm and tranquil atmosphere. We stayed twice, first after a long flight and then after a fortnight in the bush and on each occasion peace and comfort were the priority...

After a busy business day you come "home" at this lovely, quiet hotel in this busy town. The owners and their staff really make you feel at home. The rooms are spacious and well equipped with everything you need. The breakfast is excellent - just ask for what you want and it will be served. This is a place where...

Super comfortable, spacious rooms, effortlessly stylish, delicious healthy breakfasts and staff who go out of their way to make you feel at home. It is well situated near Rosebank's shopping malls but quiet and peaceful and green. It was my second stay at The Parkwood and I'll certainly be back the next time I visit Johannesburg.

This was my second time back staying at The Parkwood and my time was once again nothing short of incredible. The staff can never do much for you, the breakfast is just right and the rooms are homely,well equipped,comfortable and extremely well decorated with style. Even when the hotel is at full capacity you wouldn't even notice it. Can't imagine...

The Parkwood is situated in a quiet street in a leafy suburb in Joburg. It is close to the major shopping centres and down town Johannesburg. The lodge itself is gorgeous. There is attention to detail and a real sense of peace and quiet. The little courtyards with fountains and two pools give the feeling of tranquility. The rooms are...

The staff from the guard to the servers to the back office all may you feel like "what can we do for you." Room 10 was fabulous off the pool, and large enough to live in for awhile. The bedroom, bathroom, sitting room, outdoor shower and the pool and covered patio right outside of your room. Absolutely the right place...

We stayed here with a group of friends while visiting Joburg for a wedding. The accommodation is beautiful. I have stayed at the Westcliff (now Four Seasons) before and the Executive room we had at The Parkwood was just as nice. The atmosphere is really relaxed and as a group we were able to hang out together in the seating...
