Met our expectations in everything. Warm welcome by everyone. We had an all inclusive package with dinner and some spa treatments. Massage was excellent; dinner was excellent maybe too much, all staff pleasant and efficient. Great safari could have stayed longer but time was not on our side. Overall a faultless stay would recommend it to anyone.

We stayed here 2 nights in early Feb, and it is a simply excellent "boutique" hotel. The hotel consists of a group of buildings in lovely gardens in the middle of a citrus farm, a short distance from the main PE to Addo road. It is a real oasis of calm; we loved it. We wished we had stayed an... More

We stayed for two nights in July 2015. We were upgraded to a suite on arrival and were treated like family. The food was absolutely phenomenal and the lemonade was divine. We had the most relaxing and special time at Woodall. The absolute highlight was the spa - the best I have experienced in Africa. The staff in the spa... More

My partner and I stayed here for 5 days while we explored Addo National Park. It was a bit of a special treat, as we usually book simpler, B&B-type accommodation, but every penny spent on Woodall was so worth it. In fact, we probably would have happily paid more for the amazing experience we had. Even before arriving, they emailed... More

Thanks to holiday madness nothing else we found was available near Addo Elephant Park. HINT: if traveling in SA during holiday season, book _months_ in advance. We took Woodall because it was available and reviews were great. If you are super wealthy and enjoy extreme formality and privacy, being pampered and no down to earth conversations about real life in... More

We felt really welcome and we liked the very friendly and attentive staff, the isolated location, very calm and peaceful "oasis", the large and comfortable room (#2), the beautiful garden and lake with plenty of singing birds (could spend hours there). We liked also the excellent gastronomic dinners and the fantastic breakfasts (the best we had in SA) at the... More

We have never stayed anywhere that is a touch on Woodall. From accommodation to the food to the wonderful friendly service it is perfection. It is ideally situated for visits to the Addo Elephant Park and also offers daily guided drives into the park. We will definitely stay there again and recommend to even the most discerning fo travellers.

We just wanted stay for one night, but stayed another night. And this was even not enough. We were upgraded to a suite with a private pool, huge bedroom, sitting room, private patio, just excellent. But we didn't want to obstruct our planned 3 week trip more then we already did, so we left. But not after promising ourselves to... More
