We are checking out this morning after a very brief visit to Durban but wanted to thank Bali Ridge for giving us a very comfortable stay and taking one less worry from our trip. Right from getting a quote to booking and our stay itself, it was very smooth and easy. We were welcomed by Bongi who went above board to be accommodating and looked after us. We had appointments at the nearby Ethabeni Hospital and Bali's proximity made it really perfect. Thank you Bali Ridge, you will definitely be recommended.

We enjoyed our stay at the Bail on the Ridge, the customer service we received from the lady that checked us in and cleaned our room is very friendly. The only thing that can be adjusted would be to add a plug point by a mirror for when people set there hair. We will be coming back again.

Our stay was superb. The breakfast is out of this world, the rooms open and neat. The staff very friendly!! Although it was some distance from the city centre, traveling to and fro was not a hassle!! Our stay was just hampered by persistent rain otherwise we enjoyed ourselves!!

The proximity of the accommodation to our appointment venue was ideal.
Unfortunately the receptionist was not very helpful and we struggled to find the receptionist at departure time. Attention to detail could be improved such as no key for the front door and light bulbs not working in the rooms.

SERVICE – only received one towel for the two nights I was there. Saturday, they cleaned but they did not replace the towel/s.

ROOM – y’all need to replace the broken bathroom rails and soap holder.

CLEANLINESS – linen wasn’t 100%. Please can y’all make sure that clean linen or new ones with no marks are placed in.

Would I come back? If the above are addressed, then definitely.

I requested the staff member to borrow me an ironing board and she never brought it to us we ended up ironing in our beds. Breakfast menu was good but eggs and bread were completely dry. Need to improve more on breakfast food must be kept warm.

Very accommodating and friendly owner and staff, who made the stay of my father in law very comfortable and pleasant. Spacious place with garden and parking available. The place is closely located to shops and waling distance to a small natural reserve.
