This will have been our third or fourth visit to Woodall, and each time there are exciting new additions to the premises and the menu. It is really quite mind-boggling how James and Debbie manage to keep their staff so well motivated and happy, and a happy staff equals happy guests! The gardens, the guest rooms and suites and dining... More

I do not want to provide any black&white view and so first I will summarize what we appreciated: The hotel itself has very nice surroundings and even when the buildings do not look nice from the outside, hotel interiors are really beautiful. Also rooms are even nicer than you can see from web site photos, all with focus on details.... More

Spent 3 nights at Woodall with our young daughter. Left reluctantly and already planning to return with friends. As sticklers for detail, we were very appreciative of the many little touches that the staff go to so much trouble to put into place. Won't mention them, as I'll let them be surprises. Very nice modern rooms, incorporating African touches without... More

We stayed at the Woodall Country House for two nights and very much enjoyed the 5-star treatment and the lovely setting. We loved all the small details, like the ferns, little notes, nougatines and aromatic oils. Best of all was the food and the friendly staff. The restaurant offers the most delicious 4-course menus for reasonable prices. And breakfast is... More

Woodall is the perfect place to stay when you want to visit Addo Elephant Park! It's a gorgeous boutique hotel and our room was fabulous!! The staff are extremely friendly and helpful and the food was absolutely amazing! We booked a game package and our guide Conor was fantastic! We would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone!

We were greeted by Edouan who gave us chilled face towels to freshen up then took us to the sundowner deck and brought us some wine before explaining all about the hotel. He then showed us to our room and it took my breath away - I think we must have had an upgrade to a suite as it was... More
