Great stay! One of the best places we have ever stayed at. Unbelievable staff, great food and luxurious facilities! We traveled with our two month old baby and every effort was made by the staff to make everything as easy as possible for us. We were treated like royalty!

Everything about Woodall was great from the beautiful and comfy rooms, the professional but friendly staff and the excellent food. We decided to treat ourselves to two days here as part of a longer trip. It's perfectly situated for day trips to Addo, a short drive away. We didn't try the spa, but it looked stunning. The food really was... More

An excellent choice for visitors to the Addo Elephant National Park and other attractions. I stayed in the fabulous luxury suite with my two daughers and we all loved the experience. Great comfy beds, nespresso machines, views onto the bush and lush garden. Superb bathrooms with lovely windows onto private courtyard. The dining room has a great location on a... More

My boyfriend and I spent one night at Woodall, and my only complaint is that we didn't spend more time here! The staff are so helpful and friendly, and give such personal service. They made us feel really welcome and checked up on us a number of times to make sure we were happy with everything. The rooms are absolutely... More

We were very impressed with every detail of our stay at the Woodall House, from the warm champagne welcome we received, to the spacious, well-appointed room with optional outdoor shower. Each night at dinner, we were treated to a specialized menu that included our names, and staff always seemed to know who we were. We also enjoyed an amazing game... More

After roughing it for a few days, we decided to treat ourselves to a stay at Woodall Country House. And what a treat it was. We arrived rather early but were warmly greeted by Ruan and Eduan who made us feel most welcome and after offering us a welcome drink, showed us around the property. The main part of the... More

We arrived at Woodall Country House and expected everything that a Five Star Lodge should offer. Firstly, our suites were large and comfortably furnished. There was a sitting room area but no television and the lighting was poor. Both the bedroom and bathrooms were huge - ample space for those who like to roam around. The view from the Suites... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Woodall very much. The owner an staff were very friendly and helpful giving us insights on way of life and things to do in South Africa. We booked the morning drive and eventhough we were not so lucky with the animals, our private drive was fun and informative. We also had one massage treatment... More

We stayed at Woodall for two nights as part of a two-week road trip in the Western & Eastern Cape. Initially I'd wanted to find accommodation in the park itself, but I'm glad we chose to stay at Woodall. We've been to other game parks in South Africa where we stayed at private lodges inside their reserves, but we thought... More

We enjoyed four very quite and relaxing nights here. As it's almost end of season, we were almost alone and enjoyed a very personal, high quality service. The Woodall guest house is beautiful and quite, offering an amazing breakfast and is of course very close to Addo for daytrips. I will come back.
