The rooms are spacious, well-equipped and warm (the under-floor heating was particularly vital for the cold winter evenings in July.

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....

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.

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...

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.
