We come to South Africa on holiday every year and try and spend the last four nights at this amazing guest house (next year we want to stay for a whole week!) Vanessa, Renette and Anneline are fabulous and look after their guests so well. We are always greeted with huge hugs and we are treated like old friends, although they must see so many different people throughout the year We love Room 1, the Honeymoon Suite - gorgeous big room, balcony with table and chairs, dressing room and lovely big en-suite with double wash basins, shower and separate bath. There was a dainty posy of roses on our bed when we arrived, lovely vase of roses in the room and a handful of rose petals down the toilet (!) Loved the fact that there was a complimentary water machine, honesty bar and a voucher for a wine-tasting at the Ridgeback restaurant during our stay Breakfast was absolutely delicious. The choices are great including a lovely choice of continental breakfast and a hot breakfast menu to choose from The garden area is beautifully kept and the pool is extremely clean and well kept. Lovely comfortable sun loungers and table and chairs make our stay so special One evening we went for a lovely walk all around the vineyards on a trail that took us about an hour and gave us some spectacular views We hated saying goodbye and can't wait to come back again next year…
We were made to feel very welcome - Vanessa, Sue, Anneline & Rinette went out of their way to provide excellent service. The room was well equipped with everything needed and the airconditioner and ceiling mounted fan allowed adjustment to comfortable levels - despite the very high temperatures. The breakfast was amazing - what a choice! - and efficiently served without being rushed. The swimming pool was just what was needed to cool off. The pool was well maintained, clean and surrounded by loungers to relax and enjoy a drink after the swim. All in all, a four star establishment with a ten star service - highly recommended.
Situated fairly close to Paarl and within the Ridgeback Vineyard the old country house is very pleasant. Nice room (No. 5) with small balcony, large bathroom with all amenities (double wash-basin, shower, etc). Comfortable bed in a decent size room with tea/coffee facilities, plenty of storage space, fridge, DSTV, WiFi and wines and snacks on offer. Bed turned down at night. Aircon and ceiling fan. Very quiet at night. Pool in the garden. There is a large lounge with an honesty bar and a large breakfast room. Substantial breakfast available with Continental and cooked. Very nice staff on hand. Handy location to tour the Paarl Winelands. The Deck Restaurant serves very good food.
Really wonderful guest house in the middle of the vineyard. We stayed in the biggest room, really worth the upgrade. Great common areas, and a good breakfast. Service was fantastic. Very safe as well with great security.
We were a group of 3 that stayed at Ridgeback House for a couple of nights. Our experience was really enjoyable and I can recommend Ridgeback House without any doubt. Vanessa arranged early breakfast during our stay which was absolutely word class. Our rooms were neat, tidy, spacious and very comfortable. What I can really point out is that Vanessa really gives attention to detail and this truly makes you feel like royalty. Thank you. We will most definitely stay with you again on our next trip to Paarl.
