Perfect retreat from the bustle of busy Joburg, behind the tall stone walls of The Parkwood. Our room was spacious, well appointed and warm. Breakfast was a lovely spread of cereals, yoghurts & fresh fruit. The cooked breakfast was not brilliant but not bad either....More

My sister and I stayed at The Parkwood this month and could not recommend it more highly. We moved out of a corporate hotel, looking for a more home-like feeling and an indoor-outdoor experience. The Parkwood over-delivered on everything, from the beautiful spacious rooms to...More

Spacious, luxury gem. Personal service, excellent hideaway. Small but sufficient pool, electrical sockets for every country and an outside shower. Great garden with smelling flowers, so you feel like totally away.
