I just love getting away from it all and checking in at Dune Ridge. The indigenous garden, large spacious rooms, farmhouse style, stunning pool and abundant birdlife are all food for the soul. I can sleep in as there are no disturbances and it is completely quiet. I always look forward to the breakfast which is delicious and all attention...

We were "assigned" to Dune Ridge by our company and were overwhelmed by the great welcome, the professional staff and the wonderful facilities. In our estimation one of the best kept secrets of the guest house industry.

Beautiful place with nice clean room and lovely bathroom. However safety and security with 24 hours reception service especially at night can be improved. Lunch could be improved when provided for business

A very enjoyable stay with a very friendly welcome from Suzette. Dinner and breakfast were delicious. We had our own individual bungalow with a lovely terrace which was very quiet and private. The room was very comfortable with a kingsize bed and a lovely large bright bathroom. I wish we could have stayed longer. Many thanks to all the team...

A very special place this: quality, comfort and attentiveness were all first class. One gets a 'country house' experience. The facilities in the main house were wonderful - dinner and breakfast in the library in front of the log fire were memorable, Our garden room was superb. An absolutely enjoyable stay, what a pleasure!
