Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ramvtn Comfortable stay - out of the way - average experience
The beds are comfortable and the room was clean. Noise levels were low and I could relax in the room.
Hugely disappointed and upset that there was no gym on the property.
Breakfast - food was good but selection was limited and repeated every alternate day.
Staff service was good (especially front desk) - attentiveness of restaurant staff could improve though
The property is out of the way and unless you have your own transportation, one will be stuck on the property.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by ZanSte Disappointed
Our room had stains on the walls and ceiling, masking tape on the skirting and the sound proofing was zero. We had loadshedding on two of the three nights we stayed there. Disappointed as we were not informed when booking that the hotel does not have a generator.
The staff were lovely but they were left down by the above negatives.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Bruwin Poor Breakfast, Poor Shower, Poor Soundproofing
I had 3 problem areas regarding my stay :-
1) Water in shower was lukewarm. Pressure and volume was low.
2) Soundproofing between rooms is poor. I was kept awake by a snorer in the room next to mine.
3) Hot food at Breakfast time was, in fact, lukewarm. Here I refer to the scrambled eggs. In addition the plates were cold as there is no facility on hand to keep them hot.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by tryers great experience
the stay at the holiday inn express woodmead was great. the hotel is situated in a tranquil environment, the hotel exterior is awesome.
the hotel staff is friendly without being overly intrunsive.
one area that needs to be looked into, however, is the size of the television sets in some of the rooms. one wouldnt expect to find a 14 inch television set in this era.

Please install Emergency lighting in the rooms because it gets very dark during load shedding

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BC49 Good overall stay
The room is relatively small, no bath in the rooms but I find it very suitable for quick no fuss business trips. Cooked Breakfast is limited but adequate. Staff are very friendly and efficient in the daily routine. Complaints are slow to get dealt with when the hotel is full so follow up.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by smk58 Load shedding
Guests must be briefed of the load shedding and what they must do to prepare for it. this not only affected the safety of guests as the power would go off whist in the rooms. it also affected what was then available to eat which would be tricky for those with special requirements.
The check in briefing should have warned visiting external guests about the load shedding and what to do or what is available
