This is a lovely place to stay. Peaceful, quiet and a very romantic setting. The staff were friendly and the breakfast spread was delicious. Unfortunately, the cold weather meant we were barely able to used the pool which was unfortunate as it looked fantastic. Did make use of the jacuzzi though which offers nice views over the countryside.

Violet and Eve were readily available throughout the year to assist with and answer all of our questions and concerns and left us feeling happy and at ease during the weeks and days leading up...

The food is of the cheapest quality, not once was I overly exited about any meal that I ate. Also, for the price one pays, you would expect to feel filled...

We enjoyed our two night stay at Woodridge. The view from our suite was amazing. I loved the rim-flow pools which flowed past all the suites. The sound of the water flowing and the reflection of the sun rising on the water was spectacular. We went for walks up the hill each morning from where you could enjoy spectacular views...

11 of us ladies attend a 2 night breakaway at Woodridge Country Spa. I personally had an awesome time, and although a busy couple of days being entertained with pizza, chocolate, soap and cocktail making, it was also extremely relaxing. We were also all treated to an awesome spa treatment. The soap making, in particular Cynthia, made this an awesome...

What an amazing experience. Just one weekend there will make you feel so relaxed and at home that you wouldn't ever want to go home.
