I travel to Joburg often for work and always try to stay at the Parkwood. The standard of service as always is impeccable, my room that looks over the little Koi pond this most recent time was fantastic. The Parkwood always makes me feel like I am on holiday in Joburg even though most of the time its for business.... More

Since I moved to CT I stay at The Parkwood on most of my return trips for business and I find it to be very conveniently located, close to all the shops & restaurants in Rosebank as well as a short walk from the Gautrain. The service, rooms and ambiance are consistently good and the dinner option is a great... More

Its taken a while to get to doing some reviews, but this was definitely on top of the list to review. Stayed back in April and loved every minute. From the time we booked to the time we left, the management was excellent and the staff were only more than happy to help. The room was perfect, with an awesome... More

As a periodic traveler to JHB/PTA, I will invariably choose the Parkwood as a hotel over several other options that might perhaps be positioned far more conveniently to meeting venues that may be much further away. But actually it's almost entirely because of the positioning of the Parkwood that I enjoy it so much. It feels less like a hotel... More

I have stayed there a few times so can speak from experience. It is my home away from home and place of choice when in Johannesburg. Great accommodation, friendly and well trained staff, good in-house dining, central location as Uber can take you anywhere from there, I feel safe when lodging. I have comfort in knowing that consistently The Parkwood... More

I want to express my sincere appreciation to the management of The Parkwood for a really wonderful stopover on route to South America. The room was luxurious and I felt extremely blessed soaking in the beautiful bath and enjoying all the extra creature comforts that made for a truly pampering experience. It set the bar high for the next 2... More

If you are on business or looking to stay in Johannesburg on vacation, this is the perfect place to stay-my home from home. Friendly, helpful staff, excellent setting with great dining option. Easy access to greater Johannesburg with Gautrain close by.

This hotel has missed the reason for a five star property. Service resembles a bad Holiday Inn - there is simply none. From the moment you arrive at the gate, you are made aware that they are doing you a huge favour to provide a bed for the night. No welcoming greeting, carry your own luggage through tight turns, no... More

Dear Andre, We are enormously apologetic for the "unwelcome' arrival you & your family received, this should never have happened. As yours is the first negative review on our property in over 10 years we have taken great care to look into it.

A lovely setting in a highly secure suburb. Good facilities. Could be more accommodating for the price per night. Housekeeping impeccable but need to conserve electricity by not leaving bed aide lamps on after cleaning. Central to all major hubs.
