My PA booked a room for me at the Woodhall Guesthouse, where I had stayed 3 or 4 times previously over the last few years. She booked through SA-venues and prepaid for the accommodation. Can you imagine my surprise when I arrived at the gate to be told by the security guard "it has closed"! He told me that he...

I made a booking at Woodhall Guest House in Westville in April this year. After both faxing and emailing the confirmation on arrival there was no room for me. I was told they had a "sister" guesthouse which I could stay at and was assured it was of the same quality. IT WAS NOT! I arrived and was shown to...

Great service and hospitality, friendly staff. Will go out of their way to please you. Very reasonably rates. Excellent food. Good conference facilities. My home away from home in Durbs!! Read the other negative reviews and cannot agree with them. I had a totally different experience.

Stayed here a couple of nights in April. Lovely B&B, huge rooms, very comfortable and luxurious, gorgeous bathroom. Centrally located, it was easy for us to get around Durban from there. Breakfast was great, friendly staff. The kids loved the Tudor style and the magnificent suit of armour - they thought they were staying in a castle!

I travel to Westville in Durban once or twice per month. Unfortunately my favourite guest house closed down recently and I picked Woodhall from the web. I was very disappointed by the service and will never stay here again. I have also advised the company I work for never to make bookings here again. A few days before I travelled...

Myself, my wife and some of our family have recently spent 6 nights at this property and were not impressed at all. It is advertised as 5 star but I am not sure it would even meet 3 star criteria. We had booked 3 double rooms and a 1 single room, however, upon arrival were asked if we could just...

I was recommended to stay here by a work colleague and certainly wasn't disappointed. I only stayed two nights but it was a memorable experience. I was on business, visiting Umhlanga and Pietermaritzburg, so the location was ideal. On arrival, you are immediately made to feel very special by the friendly reception staff. I couldn't believe the size of room...
