Roscommon Cottage

Grading: NAA-SA, TGCSA

Parkview is conveniently situated in the 'Parks' in the greater Rosebank area, part of Northern Suburbs of Johannesburg, and is one of Johannesburg's older suburbs with graceful homes and beautiful tree-lined streets. We are close to Zoo Lake and the Johannesburg Zoo.

The accommodation consists of two self-catering cottages. The larger cottage is suitable for families, a home from home, where the atmosphere is relaxed, and children are most welcome. The smaller cottage is suitable for either a single, or couple. Both short and longer stays are available.
