We found the bedroom a little cramped and a door on the bathroom would be good. The shower had a section of the sliding door missing so the floor got all messy. Our hostess was charming and the breakfast was delicious.

Woodpecker had everything we needed for an overnight stay. Breakfast in the morning was really good .Thanks .

This was a perfect place to stay on our way back to Cape Town. It had everything we needed, and more, and this, together with Nadia's hospitality and friendliness, makes it a stopover to be highly recommended.

Well done to the owners of Woodpecker for affording us a warm welcome and being ever so friendly during our stay. We highly recommend this venue and look forward in staying there again soon. I think it deserves more than 4 stars as one really gets more than moneys worth. Thanks once again.

Wat 'n heerlike ervaring...elke detail, al die omgee. Eureka en haar span was ongelooflik. Die kos was heerlik. Hul leiding en hulp word werklik waardeer. Ons het 'n lieflike wegbreek gehad en sal rêrig weer daar gaan kuier. Baie dankie.
