This is a luxury lodging experience. Rooms are well laid out and not on top of each. The breakfast is extensive and I am sure that if what you want is not on the menu, they will soon find it for you. The evening meal is fine dining at its best. A game drive to Addo Elephant Park is not... More

Had a wonderful stay. The room is fantastic, great bed with lovely netting and one of the best outdoor showers I have seen. The food was wonderful. The breakfast with all the home made jams was a treat. Dinner on the patio was lovely and the food and wines made it a memorable evening. The entire place was a tranquil... More

The welcome when you arrive is fantastic. You are greeted as though you are a long lost friend and made to feel welcome the second you get out of your car. The rooms are massive with a separate sitting area, bedroom and bathroom. There is a plunge pool for those hot Eastern Cape days in summer. Nothing has been forgotten... More

This place was amazing, just about everything was perfect. Beautiful rooms and gardens (with lots of birds), great breakfast and the set dinner menu was out of this world! Highly recommended. Their guide Roan(?) was good fun and very knowledgable.

We stayed for 3 nights in Woodall Country House and Spa and absolutely loved it. The room was enormous and very beautiful. We did not use the private pool on our room as it was a bit cold during our stay but I can imagine it would be great in the summer. I loved the personal touches during the stay... More

We spent the last three days of our honeymoon at Woodall. After great experiences at various places along the garden route, we made our way to Addo, not knowing what to expect. We drove in via a unpaved road flanked by valencia orange trees, into the most grand courtyard. We were immediately greeted by Cearl who showed us around after... More

We had a wonderful stay here. The service was discreet yet attentive and friendly. There were so many nice touches from complimentary home made lemonade and cakes in reception to a small gift on your pillow each evening. The food was divine. The 6 course taster menu in the evening was delicious we never made it through the whole meal!... More

Wow what isn't there to rave about? From our arrival to our departure at Woodall everything was pure amazing. The service, the food, the friendliness of the staff- it was excellent. Not to mention the big luxurious bedrooms and tranquil garden setting. It is not often you visit or stay at a place where the management and staff treat the... More

Beautiful country accommodation set in the ADDO Elephant Wildlife Reserve. The quality of the accommodation is outstanding which is supported by a superb restaurant. There are stacks of activities for you to try. We went on the Sundowner Safari and the Woodall morning Safari; both were remarkable with plenty of wildlife to view. The local representative (Roan) takes you on... More

Overall disappointing. Yes, the grounds are lovely, as are the rooms, but it all feels very pretentious. It tries hard to imitate a luxury safari lodge but doesn't come close to providing the atmosphere you'd find there. The staff are friendly but somehow lack warmth and empathy. It feels very functional and fussy, particularly when it comes to the meals.... More
