Reviewed 16 June 2017

we stayed here for our safari's in the Addo Elephant Parc. The hotel is very beautifull, we had a big room with our own pool. The breakfast is delicious. The staff amazing. We also had our dinner in the Woodall, very good food and great service. We also booked our safari's there, which was very nice. We saw the 3 of the big five, so for sure we have to come back to spot the other 2. Please do not look further just book the Woodall !

The location itself was amazing! We did the 3 day safari package and all three safaris were unforgettable. Saw 4/5 of the big 5 during our first outing! The food was incredible as well and all of the staff were incredibly nice and helpful. Highly highly recommended!

We stayed at the Woodall to be close to the Addo reserve. The hotel is in a remote area, so you will need a car, if you want to travel out for the day. There was only one taxi company which was very pricy.
The accommodation is 11 cottages which were well decorated and very spacious. We had a separate lounge and large bathroom. The service was excellent, as the staff paid attention to detail, in preparing your room for the evening. They turned on the electric blanket, and left a lovely message on the bed, with chocolate or fudge each night. There was however....no television in ants of the rooms!!! They do have a large TV lounge though.
The only criticism I would had is regarding the food menu. The food was lovely, although the only choice you have each night was a seven course menu. The manager allowed us to choose only one course on the first night, but the following night, even though we only ordered three courses each, we had to pay for the whole seven. I think there should be an option to opt out if you only want two or three courses.
The restaurant is set looking out over pond area, with lots of lovely birds.
Despite my quibbles I would recommend the Woodall.

Accommodations are private with each a different personality with quiet music playing throughout each room. Some have private fire places, some have private pools. Reception are professional and always going the extra mile to make you feel at home. The food and presentation of it could not be told, but experienced. Pampering is always a highlight. If you are run-down and need to unwind, look no further. Woodall is for all with its well manucured gardens.

We had Room one, large and airy, near to the pool and the Restaurant. There were good room facilities with mini bar and tea/coffee making, although If you stay more than one night a television would be a good addition. The WiFi worked in the room although only on one device. The public area WiFi was better for phone calls.
The staff were exceptionally good across the board.The Restaurant serves a super tasting menu with wine at reasonable prices.
You pay a little more for this venue but its worth it.

We loved this Lodge!
The staff were so friendly & efficient & nothing was too much trouble.
Our room, lounge area & bathroom were so spacious with first class furniture, appliances, fittings, linen & towels - everything to make your stay an enjoyable one.
We had 2 memorable evening meals - a 5 course set menu with choices. The presentation was excellent & the food deliciousness.
We loved the breakfast - a superb display of fresh items as well as a menu with special dishes of the day. Not to mention champagne.
We can also highly recommend the Spa.
All in all a wonderful stay - we left feeling pampered & spoilt -thank you.

We stayed for 3 nights and so wish we had stayed longer. After having stayed in many 5 star hotels over the years, this county house took the first place.
The rooms with the comfortable beds, lounging areas, outdoor showers were out this world. The breakfasts and dinners were Masterchef creations. All the staff just did everything to make this holiday special.
The country house manager, Eduan, was always about suggesting things to do, making sure we got to the spa and safaris on time. We, three couples all agree that we all want to return asap. Thanks Woodall Country House team for making this Birthday treat so special.
