I booked to stay here for a week over the Christmas break. The location is good, very peaceful and the heritage cottage I stayed in was clean. There were a few problems though: the bed was very hard, the windows have no screens or bars so you can't keep them open at night and it's almost impossible to find someone...

Spent 9 days here over new years and thoroughly enjoyed our time. Rooms are basic but clean and comfortable. We stayed in a cottage and had no complaints. The location is perfect, 2 mins walk from small beach and only 10 mins along the cliff tops to the larger beach. We ate at the restaurant several times and had no...

The website pictures and reviews paint a much better picture than it really is. As this is a negative review, I will try to explain my dissatisfaction thoroughly so you can make your own judgement to spend your hard-earned money on Woodhouse Beach Resort. To give you perspective, I am ex-US Army and my wife is 7 months pregnant, but...

Overall, a good value-for-money stay. My room was nice, the restaurant was good (very happy with the complimentary brekkie options), the staff friendly & helpful & the beach is right out front. Only one negative: my room was right above reception and beside some kind of office, where all the staff congregate, and it did get quite noisy at times....

We stayed in a cottages facing the sea! Very nice! The cottage it self was nice! Big enough for two people with a attached bathroom! It had a little Area outside our door where you could sit and watch the waves! The staff were really friendly! The location was great! The beach was literally at the end of the hotel!...

We stayed at the Woodhouse beach resort for the last two nights and are very sad to be leaving today. It is a wonderful place! The staff are amazing, honest and provide brilliant service. One of the members of staff described their service as 'non professional'. By this he means they do not stand over you hassling you - they...

I really really recommend Wood House. Apart from the wonderful location, the clean rooms, the lovely bungalows, the great location of the restaurant and the decent price, the team is absolutely fantastic. Anu and Ashok made my stay there so smooth and pleasant and helped me in so many ways that after a 2-night stay I could not leave and...
