“Excellent place to stay”
Reviewed 25 December 2012

I needed a place to crash, before leaving the next morning. I arrived, dead tired, late at night. My PH recommended the place, as he always stayed there. Marni picked me up and drove me home, where her Mom fed me a really nice meal, despite the hour. I don't know what one of the local dishes was, but it was terrific.
I was treated like favorite family, stayed in a really nice room, and left the next morning, smiling. I highly recommend the family, and their home.

Room Tip: Take whatever they offer. It'll be good.

Its a peaceful place, really loved it. Will definately recommend to family and friends, and i would most definately use it again.

Thank you to the management and friendly staff.

I have been staying at Woodpeckers on a monthly basis close to two years.For me the service and attention to detail impressed me from the first time I stayed.The rooms are always immaculately prepared with many small extras included,like complimentary Sherry and Biscuits on offer in the rooms.Rooms are tastefully decorated.Marnie always goes the extra mile for her guests and nothing ever seems to much.For me the location is close to my office and airport so this obviously suits me as well.Well done!

Thanks for the lovely hospitality I received from your guest house I really enjoyed the stay with your warm welcome and friendship that you gave us. We will always remember it and will come pop around when we visit Johannesburg again in our holiday during August 2012

Send me regards to all your staff.

Kind regards.
