Staying at this place about two weeks. Rooms clean, with direct access to the pool. Wifi works without a problem. Service at the front desk and the restaurant very friendly, helpful and nice. Tasty food at a reasonable price. The person guarding the parking lot always smiling. The only downside was the bathroom, needs renovation. I would recommend to anyone.

We have stayed in the Ridge Guesthouse for one night and I would like to recommend it to anyone visiting Richards Bay. It is a very good 3 star establishment. The rooms are spacious and clean, with comfortable beds, good quality bedding, enough power plugs and a small fridge, which was very welcome. The bathroom had a shower over the...

When friends heard we'd booked to stay at Richard's Bay, the reaction was unanimous - 'oh'. But we needn't have worried because this guesthouse is located near the beach, with beautiful, far-reaching views over the ocean and only distant views of the heavily-used port activity. Close to amenities and a gorgeous sandy beach, lovely swimming pool and patio overlooking the...

Guesthouse with a rather impersonal feeling to it- the rooms are a fair size and comfortable enough and have patio doors that lead out to the pool, the bathrooms are rather small to manouvre around in. Security guard in car park meant we could relax about the car. Rather impersonal we went out for dinner came back about 9pm would...

I have stayed in Richard's Bay on numerous times and The Ridge Guesthouse was one of the best stays I had. The breakfasts were excellent and the Pub/Restuarant served good food and wine. The staff was friendly and the rooms were very nice. Airconditioning was available, and it was appreciated, as I travelled in the summer time, but the views...
