We only stayed one night at Woodridge, en route to elsewhere. Dinner and breakfast were very nice. Enormous dining room and we were the only two people there as it was a Monday night. But the staff lit a lovely log fire just for us as it was a rainy, misty night.

I am absolutely shocked and quite frankly, disgusted with Woodridge Country Hotel and Spa. Why you may ask? On 3 December 2014, our family of 20 adults paid deposits and some also paid in full to book one night at Woodridge Country Hotel and Spa for 6 June 2015. Altogether an amount of R12,750.00. The plan was to sleep the... More

We got married at Woodridge in December 2014 and cannot thank Violet, Eve and Cynthia enough for such a smooth flowing and very special day. Violet and Eve were readily available throughout the year to assist with and answer all of our questions and concerns and left us feeling happy and at ease during the weeks and days leading up...

The only thing going for Woodridge country hotel and spa is that it is set in a stunning location and that it has reasonably comfortable yet very overpriced accommodation. The food is of the cheapest quality, not once was I overly exited about any meal that I ate. Also, for the price one pays, you would expect to feel filled... More

We enjoyed our two night stay at Woodridge. The view from our suite was amazing. I loved the rim-flow pools which flowed past all the suites. The sound of the water flowing and the reflection of the sun rising on the water was spectacular. We went for walks up the hill each morning from where you could enjoy spectacular views... More

11 of us ladies attend a 2 night breakaway at Woodridge Country Spa. I personally had an awesome time, and although a busy couple of days being entertained with pizza, chocolate, soap and cocktail making, it was also extremely relaxing. We were also all treated to an awesome spa treatment. The soap making, in particular Cynthia, made this an awesome... More
