Marnie and her team pull out all the stops, nothing is too much trouble, everything is clean , tidy and the rooms are planned very well with all amenities you need. Very conveniently located, close to shops, restaurants and airport. We will definitely use Woodpeckers Inn again!

The stay was excellent - well appointed rooms, clean and had everything you needed (including some drinks in the fridge- also not too pricey). Breakfast was prepared fresh each morning. Close to most shopping and amenities. Very friendly staff. Using a GPS is a must if you are unfamiliar with the area.

Great place in a quiet location, the host very friendly and informative. A bit challenging to find from major routes. Set in a good area, only challenging was sleeping on the first day due to planes, but that is expected from an area near the airport
