The Ridge Hotel is always giving a high standard when it comes to service & cleanliness, Wifi also helps when with my work cause i've managed to do most of my work while in the hotel. The only thing I was not aware of which I've learned was the pre-ordering of Breakfast on the go especially when I have early meetings with clients. Overall, everything was more than perfect.

The service level from the staff was excellent as well as the decor of the room. The breakfast was amazing and the staff went out of their way to cater for us as we were vegetarian. We could not sleep as the noise level from New Cafe was blasting until after 2 am in the morning. The hotel staff tried to accommodate us by change room but this did not change the noise levels. I would give the staff and the decor a rating of 8 but due to the noise level and not being able to sleep after all this is a hotel, the over rating will have to be 2. The poor rating is due to the noise level and not due to quality

We arrived at Southern Sun The Ridge whilst some of us were accommodated at the Stay Easy on the same property. This is the local hive for people of Middelburg. The rooms are spacious with a shower and for those staying at the Stay Easy you have breakfast at the hotel and dinner at Billy G or Cuban on the Go. Both restaurants were full and we had to wait. The staff was efficient and there was a large variety of meals on offer at Billy G including roasts, fish, chicken , salads and a variety of desserts. I can’t comment on Cuban on the Go as I did not eat there.
