Pure luxury and supreme comfort at the Willockx Boutique Hotel

The Willockx Boutique Hotel

Recently opened, The Willockx Boutique Hotel is a truly magnificent, intimate and tranquil Mediterranean-style boutique hotel situated in the safe and peaceful suburb of Parkhurst, just minutes away from Rosebank – an ideal location for your stay in Johannesburg.

Parkhurst has seen a lot of change since it was developed as a suburb in 1904, but it wasn’t until 1938 that a couple of shops sprung up.

The hustle and bustle of Parkhurst’s 4th Avenue became known when, in the 1970’s the first antique store opened its doors and soon after more followed suit becoming affectionately known as ‘Antique alley’. 

It was only when the first coffee shop welcomed the residents in the mid-1990’s that Parkhurst got its big transformation. Parkhurst was one of the first suburban high streets to offer street-side café dinning and the Parkhurst restaurant culture grew rapidly from there.

Today, Parkhurst offers a variety of dinning, interior design, small businesses and couture, its quaint and glamourous all rolled into one. Whether it’s the antique shops, multitude of different high street stores or the large assortment of eateries in between, the only thing that stays the same is the energy of Parkhurst’s main drag.

More than a home away from home, The Willockx Boutique Hotel owner, Ken Willockx and his partner, Nisa Moseki, take pride in making sure your stay is a memorable one.

Each of the four rooms has its own unique look and feel.

The rooms are very large with private balconies, and breath-taking views. Full DStv bouquet, Wi-Fi, ceiling fans, underfloor heating and lovely bathrooms make your stay a very comfortable one.

The Willockx Boutique Hotel has such a homely feel about it, sitting on the terrace you’d be forgiven to think that you have arrived somewhere in France or Spain or another beautiful Mediterranean locale for that matter. 

Ken and Nisa serve a fantastic continental breakfast. Cold cut meats, cheeses, croissants and fresh bread awaited us in the morning, oh and he will gladly make you bacon and eggs if you require.

Ken is a Belgian chef and will take pre-booked requests for dinner; I can only imagine how delicious a dinner would be based on our breakfast alone.

The Willockx Boutique Hotel also caters for weddings, conferences and birthdays.

If you are looking for a genuine boutique hotel, where you want to relax and be close to everything the city has to offer, then The Willockx ticks all boxes.

About us

Actually, Home Food and Travel offers a lot more than just reviews of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities.  We also visit great destinations, receive advice from interior designers and stop to smell the roses and taste the coffee.

Our team of journalists are seasoned travels and love visiting the myriad of exciting places around South Africa.  Whether it is off the beaten track or in the heart of the top attractions of the country, we’ll be there,

Home Food and Travel advice on finding the right accommodation

So what is the right accommodation?  Well more often than not, it’s your travel budget that dictates the type of accommodation that you choose. 

Expensive is not always better.  Our team at Home Food and Travel will tell you that they have camped in areas with limited ablutions and had a wonderful holiday.  They have also spent a night in a five star hotel only to be disappointed because their expectations exceeded the experience.

The reason for your travels will also affect your choice.  A business trip requires different amenities to a beach holiday. 

Our articles, reviews and experiences can certainly help you make your decision.

Restaurants with a good mix of service, food and ambiance

To my mind a great restaurant offers three things – excellent service, great food and a wonderful ambiance.  Of these, service is the most important. 

No matter that the food is delicious and the setting delightful, poor service can ruin the occasion.  However, great service combined with mediocre meal and a plane jane restaurant can still be a pleasant night out.

We’ve eaten in restaurants that are really dirty but with incredible food and couldn’t help but give a rave review.  We’ve also hardly noticed what we ate because the setting was just amazing.

However, the best restaurants come with the best of service, food and ambiance.

Spas are the ultimate relaxation aid

How do you know when you have had a great spa experience?  The answer, of course, is when you doze off on the treatment table. 

Well that’s our theory anyway.  It also doesn’t take a grand location with enormous facilities for a spa to be really good

A small, personal spa that is owner run can result in the best massage you have ever experienced.  However, the grand spas in five star hotels offer unsurpassed facilities in an environment that just makes the stress in your shoulders and neck melt away before you even finish checking in.

Adventure!

You don’t have to be an adrenaline junky to enjoy an exciting experience.  In fact, what are commonly termed adventure activities usually have incredibly high safety standards and unblemished safety records.

Ziplining, bungy jumping and shark cage diving are all very safe.  It’s just that our mind tells us we are craaazzzzyyyy to be doing this.

On the road to great places of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities

If you’re driving, be safe and make use of all the wonderful farm stalls that populate South Africa’s open roads.

If you overhear somebody asking a lot of questions or see someone taking photos of empty bedrooms chances are it’s one of our Home Food and Travel team members.

We’re out looking or those great places of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities.

See you on the road!
