We stayed four nights and what a joy. The room was so spacious and we had everything we needed including a stacked bar fridge. This we had not encountered at any othe b&b. The hostess was alays there to greet you in the morning and a huge selection for breakfast. A very worthwhile stay for what you pay!

In addition the owners offered to give us a ride to nearby restaurants for dinner that evening which was really appreciated.

Nice room, nice late lunch and an 'ok' breakfast. Marnie is a nice host and was bringing us to the airport with a nice talk, very friendly. Price went cheaper, and we payed less so they are honest :) It was a nice stay after a long flight

I stayed at Woodpeckers on a business trip recently. The rooms were HUGE. The reception very friendly, And the breakfast - world class. I will never stay anywhere else when in Johannesburg. It can easily be described as a home away from home

I had a very fullfilling stay. Brilliant and helpful staff, very friendly and accommodating. It was wonderful to feel at home whilst away from home. Interent connectivity is excellent and so is pick up from the airport and drop off at the airport.
