Unfortunately, what you see was probably the standard of this hotel many months even years ago. It was run-down with no attention to detail or professionalism. From Ironing board and mops at reception to dirt stained curtains and mud clogged water. Its such a pity as this facility has such potential and the most amazing views.

We only stayed one night at Woodridge, en route to elsewhere. Dinner and breakfast were very nice. Enormous dining room and we were the only two people there as it was a Monday night. But the staff lit a lovely log fire just for us as it was a rainy, misty night.

The owner needs to come back and pay attention to the business otherwise it is going down.. The swimming pool was dirty, I know it is winter but.... The breakfast is very limited. The hotel might need to be regraded. The four star is not what you get....

Pleasant conference centre set apart from main hotel facilitates productive working environment . Beautiful afternoon walk to clear the brain , followed by hearty meal in cosy dining area. Rooms are comfortable but a little cold in spite of heaters.

I am absolutely shocked and quite frankly, disgusted with Woodridge Country Hotel and Spa. Why you may ask? On 3 December 2014, our family of 20 adults paid deposits and some also paid in full to book one night at Woodridge Country Hotel and Spa for 6 June 2015. Altogether an amount of R12,750.00. The plan was to sleep the... More

Essentially a family hotel almost next door to Michealhouse School, fantastic garden, generally clean an functional but a little dated in terms of maintenance and choice of finishes Food and service good if not memorable, staff very friendly, cut wedding chapel
