Woodpeckers went out of their way to make my 7 day stay comfortable and pleasant, it was a home away from home. They are well prepared for loadshedding, enabling me to catch up on some work in the evening. Highly recommended!

My review will be that there are things which needs to be added on the rooms, 1. Colgate in case the guest forgot to purchase. 2. Small towel to use when taking a shower. However, I will gladly visit the guest house in future and will share the info with my fellow employees..

Clean, very comfortable and friendly. What started out as a business trip turned into a longer family stay. The owners went out of their way to ensure that all our needs were met - we left as friends. Perfect for long or short stay. Excellent breakfast! Close to the airport with safe parking.

Clean, comfortable and friendly would certainly return for future business trips as it was close to friends and my business appointment. Just a pity i had a lousy neighbour who made a racket until the early hours of the morning

Even though my trip was short, it was one of the most comfortable ever! The bed and pillows... Goodness, I wish I could take them home! This was my first stay at a guesthouse (and having been a tour guide in the past, I have had many overnights at guesthouses and hotels) where the bed was so comfortable. Then there was the food. Wow! The dinners and breakfasts were exceptionally tasty. I shouldn't think of them now... I long to be back if I do! Thank you for your hospitality, friendliness and great service. I hope to be back again next year! Melanie
