    Conveniently located with regards to the airport, yet still peaceful and quiet. Very happy to arrange transfers etc. Can't fault Woodpecker's Inn!

    A mosquito was in the room. We did not see the spray until the next morning.

    Arrival was Super Quick after 19 Hrs flying arriving at 11.00PM. Check-In came last after a good night's rest. Even asked in advance if we needed single beds or a double bed. Breakfast was awesome.

    There is nothing to complain about.

    The host Marnie was very welcoming and catered to our unique needs with a 1-year old. Nothing was a problem, including a late check-out and a good travel cot was provided. We will definitely stay there again if travelling through Johannesburg. Woodpecker's is also very conveniently located for a quick transit to the hotel.

    Such a lovely clean room with everything that is needed. The cot had been made up in my room for my baby before I arrived as requested (so often when staying in hotels this is not the case even when I request it). The owner is lovely and is so warm and welcoming. Seemed like nothing was too much trouble. We had such a good stay and will definitely be back!
