Woodpecker Inn is literally a 5 min drive from Netcare East hospital where my wife went for a operation. It is safe with good views of the golf course and right next to the restaurant where the food was excellent. Logistic wise it made perfect sense and the staff are friendly and was more than accommodating to host my wife after her operation. Many thanks, you just our hospital experience a good one!!

My husband and I recently stayed here for twelve nights and were very impressed with the welcome, service, facilities, accommodation and friendliness of all the staff. By the end of our stay we felt like family and were sorry to leave. Great breakfasts with the best fruit salad and granola ever plus eggs etc to order, not to forget the coffee machine which was available 24/7. Lovely quiet setting on the Woodhill Golf Estate where one could walk safely and enjoy snacks/meals at the adjacent Club House. Overall 10/10 and highly recommended.

I had my c-section done at Pretoria East Hospital and my husband and mother stayed for the time being at Woodpecker Inn. Would highly recommend Woodpecker Inn especially for relatives that need a place to stay! So close to hospital. Booking was hassle free and the overall stay was very pleasant for them! Rooms were very nice and very clean. Very satisfied.

If you are a golfer then there is no better place to stay tan a pitching wedge from the clubhouse/sports facility with great food and drink. The inn is a superb venue to stay. I could not fault the room and the manager and staff were second to none as were the breakfast. I would highly recommend staying here.

We stayed in the suite for a week with our granddaugter and it was perfect in every sense. Clean room very spacious and everything you could ask for. The best however was the staff. Annetjie and her staff was excellent and we appreciated their service and professional way they work together. Truly a home away from home. I will deffinately return as the guesthouse is positioned close to everything and safe for travelling alone. Thank you once again

Very nice and quiet place in a wonderful surrounding. Great hostess and friendly staff. You have to book in advance for dinner - but they serve good food. The rooms towards the golfcourse are very nice and light.

The staff was friendly and helpful. Feel safe and you can go for great walks. Great breakfast was served. Close to the hospital and all the major department stores. It is a well established guesthouse but could do with a refresh.
