A 5-Star Guesthouse
The Parkwood exceeded my expectations. It is a very nice property with a very serene feeling to it. It feels very private and safe. The rooms are spacious and luxurious. It is a true five-star property but without any services that one would expect from a hotel. It’s more like a “guesthouse.” I loved it and would stay here again!
