Review by Katherine (Adelaide)

The Ridges became my oasis during my stay in South Africa. I couldn't wait to jump into the deliciously comfortable bed each evening and enjoyed starting the day by relaxing in my very own courtyard! Joy and Duff were the loveliest of hosts and I always felt very cared for. Thank you so much for welcoming me and I look forward to returning next time with my family.

Review by D Binge (Johannesburg)

Thank you for your kind hospitality and accommodating our rather peculiar needs in trying to pack up a house and go on an overseas assignment.

Your warmth and hospitality were wonderful and the accommodation was very comfortable indeed. So nice to have a little feather pillow :-)

We would certainly return!

Review by Carryn Johns (Cape Town)

Thank you for the superb accomodation you prepared for us in August 2012.

The room and bathroom were very well-appointed and the facilities were much appreciated.

We travel often and both agreed that the bed in the room was the best we have slept on in a long time. No need to fluff pillows or make ourselves comfortable- we just slept like babies!

Very Good

Review by Geraldine Veary (Cape Town)

Our family has stayed at The Ridges on 3 occasions and each time Joy and Duff Rennie have made us feel totally at home; it is as if we are staying with friends.
The accommodation is clean and comfortable and we love the location in Walmer.

Review by Randall And Deanna (Cape Town)

We come often to Port Elizabeth and love to stay in the cottage. It is very clean, quiet, safe, and comfortable and Duff and Joy make one feel at home with their great hospitality.

Review by Lesley Thomson (Howick)

We arrived in the dark and rain, later than planned on a Sunday night, and were so warmly welcomed by Joy and Duff it made up for the long journey we had, especially welcome was the glass of wine which we needed! A lovely venue which we will most certainly use again if we are ever in or near Port Elizabeth.

Review by Mari Dreyer (Johannesburg)

I absolutely love the place! It's spacious. Beautifull bathroom. Sitting area and braai facility which is private. The owners are the nicest couple, helpfull in any way necessary. Lovely garden. Quite surroundings. Near to the airport, and shopping centres. We have been booking at The Ridges almost every second month. I would recommend it to anyone!

Review by Ruth Cloete (Idutywa, Transkei)

We had a wonderful stay. The cottage was well furbished, and very quiet and peaceful. Management made us feel very welcome. Garden is lovely. Close enough to the beach areas which we had wanted to visit. Will definitely go back.
