This luxurious boutique hotel is ideally located in the trendy Rosebank area close to all the many restaurants | malls and the Gautrain. But what makes this hotel so different is the 5 star luxury accompanied with the 5 star service. My room was luxurious | beautifully decorated and extremely comfortable. Beautiful lush green gardens and pool area with relaxing lounge areas . The decor throughout the property is extremely elegant with unique elements. The breakfast was lovely and the service was outstanding. Many thanks to Nicki | Patricia and Virginia for hosting me and ensuring that I was well taken care of. Highly highly recommend The Parkwood boutique hotel.

My husband and I recently nipped away from the kids for a 1-night stay at The Parkwood Hotel to celebrate our anniversary. Wow, what a phenomenal jewel we found! Gorgeous decor and gardens, comfy beds, outstanding service and incredible attention to detail. We were there for less than 24 hours, 15 minutes drive from home but came back feeling like we had had a holiday. We can't wait to go back again - highly recommended!

I've just returned from a 16 day tour of South Africa. One of our first stops was Johannesburg at the Parkwood Hotel. This sweet boutique hotel was a pleasant surprise. Patricia was the most elegant of hosts, providing for our every need. The rooms were large, clean and comfortable. I loved the bathroom walk in showers! Breakfast was cooked to our individual preferences and was truly amazing. We found we were really close to the Rosebank mall area so we took an Uber there to shop and eat dinner. I would highly recommend this hotel to any traveller visiting Johannesburg.

The Parkwood is a guesthouse located in the Rosebank neighborhood. There are a few different types of rooms. I chose the Luxury Room. This room was furnished with 1 bed, walk-in shower (no tub), and a small outdoor patio. There is a refrigerator in the room as well as tea and coffee. A full breakfast is included in the stay. There is an option to dine on-site for dinner or food can be ordered and delivered through Uber Eats. The Rosebank shopping center is a 10 minute walk and offers several restaurants and entertainment options. Another bonus is the Hop on/Hop off city site-seeing tour bus office is located here so it makes it convenient for the tours. You don't need a car since the Gautrain Rosebank stop is by the shopping center and can take you to/from the airport.

We’ve stayed at The Parkwood a number of times over the past six years and have found the standards of service,cleanliness and comfort consistently very high. Sara, Dean and Nicki run a really slick operation and show genuine personal interest in their guests’welfare which is rare in today’s world. It is always a treat to stay in this little jewel securely tucked behind high walls in one of Johannesburg’s best locations.
