We met at this tranquil suburban boutique hotel for a business breakfast – where our director stayed during his business visit. We reserved a table, but note that the venue is only available for staying guests. Fountains, a lap pool and various patios ensure a serene atmosphere. The décor is casual, but classical. We were warmly welcomed by Nicki and... More

I had the privilege to stay at The Parkwood a few times over the last two months. Each time I was awestruck by friendliness of the staff and their willingness to assist and accommodate you to the best of their abilities. The rooms are spacious and caters for all comforts.

Location was perfect- andonly a short stroll along Jacaranda lined streetsup to the Rosebank Mall.....with its wonderful shopping,... More

The Parkwood is well appointed, the staff attentive and polite. The entire hotel is spotless and beautifully designed. I would recommend a stay at the Parkwood to any business or holiday travelled. Dinner is available and highly recommended as a stay in option. The pool is suitable to train in the warmer months of Nov-April. Staying at the Parkwood is... More

We had 3 great nights at the Parkwood. It's a really lovely hotel and we especially loved the outside shower attached to our room. Everyone was absolutely charming and very determined to ensure we had a good stay. We would definitely return and recommend the Parkwood unreservedly.

The Parkwood is a beautiful boutique hotel and we could not have found a better place to base ourselves for our short stay in Johannesburg. A warm welcome, beautiful decor, lovely rooms and an immaculate garden made us feel very comfortable for our stay. Breakfast was excellent and the small evening menu was perfect and great value.

It's home away from home where the surrounding & decor just reflected it all. The staff are very pleasant & friendly which is important. The only glitch is the wi-fi connection which is bit cranky otherwise I would have no hesitation to come back in future.

Thank you all for the most wonderful stay at The Parkwood. Understated excellence all round. We shall be back. Your immaculate gardens, long swimming pools, huge patio and outstanding but simple decor make this place my best stay ever in JHB.

I stayed at the Parkwood for four nights and it was one of my best hotel experiences I've had. The Parkwood is exceptionally well designed, kept, and decorated, the staff are friendly and helpful, the food is delicious and the grounds very very calming. Also the driver, Norman, is incredibly nice and reliable. I can't recommend highly enough.
