Wooded surrounds, ocean, good assistant Mgr, but u need to inform how long drive on dirt bumpy road is. Also our room wasn't prepared for us so we had to stay in another room which was being used and also not clean.

Unfortunately lack of good management of the lodge forced us to cut our well-deserved annual holiday short! The chalets were poorly maintained with no hot water in the kitchen, dirty shower, chipped walls and generally in poor repair.

The lack of care taken by the management to ensure that paying guests were able to enjoy the supposed peace and quiet of...

What a gloriously unspoilt and pristine hidden gem of nature! Endless beaches, cows grazing so close you can touch them and nights by the fire...this is one of those places you wish will stay hidden to retain its natural and rustic atmosphere. Woody Cape will certainly see me again.

Woody Cape Backpackers is situated in an unbelievably beautiful location with forest , dunes and sea surrounds. One expects only basic amenities at a backpackers but at least expected more than we got. We were in Loerie chalet and there was mould in the shower and no duvet on one of the beds - only a  duvet cover and the night was cold. The kettle took around 20 minutes to boil. Che and John were pleasant and helpful and did offer to switch our accommodation at no extra charge on our way back. We did not stop there on the way back as the grand children were unwell.
