We stayed for 2 nights here in March 14. The hotel is down a very bumpy drive, through a security gate and about 7 km from the main gate of Addo game reserve. Staff very welcoming. Rooms large with all usual facilities and air con. Room 6 has a very large bathroom with showers inside and outside. Very quiet at... More

This is a beautiful and very tranquil Guesthouse that really goes beyond, and also the extra mile to make guests feel special. Service is absolutely fantastic and the breakfast is amazing- One can't ask for anything else...! The six course dinner is fantastic-really made with love and very delicious. The rooms are really great and one has everything that one... More

The hotel is closely located to Addo parc. The people were very friendly, helpful and extra wishes were not a problem. Every day the car was cleaned, the breakfast was a dream and the 7 course dinner a gourmet experience. Unfortunately we only stayed 2 nights and had not enough time to use the spa facilities. Next time!

Beautiful small country house, very large rooms with fabulous bed and bathroom. Food is excellent, so was our game drive into Addo with the guesthouse's own guide - super knowledgeable and fun. Only down side: could not get spa treatments because it's very small and quickly fully booked.

We had two stays at woodall already so we knew in general what to expect and once more they did deliver. Location: The description on the web is very accurate just two things. Once you go off the main road it is gravel with some serious potholes and beware of the bumper at the entrance. Do it veeeery slowly. If... More

Due to lack of other options, we accepted to treat ourselves in our last night in South Africa. Although this stay would not break our budged, it's was by far the most expensive location we stayed. We planned to make a stop at Addo National Park, so this fancy location seemed appropriate. We were received by the owner with fresh... More

This hotel is an excellent starting point to various parks, among other the Addo Elephant National Park. But this place is for itself a very good reason to stay there. It is located a couple of kilometers outside of the Addo village at the end of a short dirt road. Therefore no traffic noise at all. You only hear the... More

This beautiful country was our last accomodation during our trip to South Africa. We had a wonderful time there. Because of our wedding anniversary we received a free upgrade to the suite so we had our private swimming pool and a lot of privacy. The breakfast and diner were really superb, and also during the game drive to the Elephant... More

We had the good fortune to spend four days over Christmas at Woodall. It is a five star hotel and that is how we were treated while we were there. The rooms are delightful with large bathrooms and outside shower. Every evening we had different oils and bath salts to come back to after a delicious dinner. You couldn't fault... More

Beautiful country house, with amazing rooms and service. Food was very good, though quite simple for being marketed as gourmet (but maybe we have high standards since we are italians!). Also, there was also only beer in cans, which didn't fit very well. In any case, we definitely recommend it!!
