I stayed here for the third time. This is such a lovely b&b. It is lovely and clean. The owners are so nice and nothing is too much trouble. They always go out of their way to make you feel at home. I have stayed here 3 times now and will definitely be back

The stay was excellent - well appointed rooms, clean and had everything you needed (including some drinks in the fridge- also not too pricey). Breakfast was prepared fresh each morning. Close to most shopping and amenities. Very friendly staff. Using a GPS is a must if you are unfamiliar with the area.

I really enjoyed my stay at Woodpecker's Inn, the place is just so homy. The serviced rendered there is of the highest quality and the family is friendly and i really can't wait for my next visit and hopefully the same room (~^,)

Great place in a quiet location, the host very friendly and informative. A bit challenging to find from major routes. Set in a good area, only challenging was sleeping on the first day due to planes, but that is expected from an area near the airport

We stayed here 2 nights, and wished we could have stayed longer! It was a wonderfully clean and comfortable place to stay. It is a little off the main road, but not too far. It's a short ride to the OR Tambo Airport or Rhodesfield Gautrain station to go on into the city. Our room was tastefully decorated, with a...

Whilst booking, Marnie was very responsive to enquiries & was able to fulfil our requests including provision of a baby cot and airport shuttles. Upon arrival, Marnie was very welcoming and accommodating to our needs. A warm and homely environment and a wonderful place to stay!
