Reviews for Woodland Gardens
"waking up to the sounds of the birds"
no aerial connection to the television. so no television.
"The place was far more amazing than we originally thought."
The fireplace was awesome, perfect sunrise view from bedroom, forest walk peaceful, fish pond and the breathtaking view of the sunset by the observatory.
Its a beautiful lodge. The log cabin was romantic and cosy but I would have recommended having some extras like mosquito repellent, soap, a heater, since we were told there would be a fire place inside and there wasnt one in our cabin. The oven was not user friendly at all. The actual lodge doesnt have great security but we never felt unsafe but being right on the main road I think they need to have better security. I had a great and memorable stay though. The lodge itself is beautiful although you dont really have a great view of the Magaliesburg Mountains. I would recommend it to couples looking for a quiet romantic weekend away because the actual log cabins are very sweet.
Exploring the garden is an adventure in itself. The owner is very attentive and goes out of his way to accommodate for your every need. I would definitely recommend Woodland Gardens to anyone seeking a romantic getaway, or a quiet escape from the city.
excellent get-away stay in a quiet environment. Pool on site and only a few units ensures a quiet stay. Massage services available. Animal friendly establishment.
Had a lovely stay at Woodland Gardens would definitely recommend the Lodge. Relaxing environment and great for pets.
Peaceful and quiet. If you need to get in touch with your inner self this is the place to go. Personal welcoming and attention from Joe and the cleaning staff. You don't see them, but when you return to your cottage after a stroll everything is spotless!!
