Beautiful, well kept building and beautiful renovated rooms.
Friendly, helpful staff.
Breakfast was average, although tasteful.
On the negative side the geyser went cold before all 4 of us had a shower.

Good day and thank you so much for the review and 4 star rating!
We take note of your comments, and had the geyser checked out. The geyser seems fine and this specific geyser is designated for 2 rooms ONLY (the 2 rooms that your family of 4 occupied). It is a 150L geyser which means 37,5L of hot water per person per shower. So I guess it could run out of hot water if all 4 occupants shower at the same time. It should be enough in this drought stricken times though, unless guests take a bath or maybe a longer shower. Nonetheless, very sorry for the inconvenience, and we are glad that you enjoyed the rest of your stay.
Have a great day!

Spotlessly clean. Steak and chips great especially the chips from Patensie potatoes delicious. Detailing of room could use a little help and electronic misquito rpelling machine right next to kettle not good. Why not in plug next to the bed

Good day, and thank you for your comments. The mosquito machines are placed by the coffee stations, so that guests are sure to see it. They may then plug it in any of the available sockets in the room, wherever suits them.

Good to hear that you found everything spotless, and that your food was great. Much appreciated!

Kindest,
Ripple Hill Hotel, Patensie

We will stay there again. It is nice to have a restaurant in the same building where you sleep. The staff was very assisting and the food in the restaurant was fantastic. The room was clean and we felt very safe.

We have eaten a few times at Ripple Hill and always enjoyed it - so decided to stay for 2 nights. Charming, very clean room. We explored several of the rooms and found they all have their own distinct character. Highly polished wooden floors and a mixture of old furniture and modern facilities. No rooms have TV (not that we miss it!). Very friendly staff and a pleasant atmosphere. Very comfortable bed and a quiet room. Corridor could do with more carpeting as footsteps echo as people walk past. Breakfast was ok, but you order the night before and have to make sure you are on time for breakfast! Evening meal on both evenings was very good - hake and chips the first night and large praws with rice and vegetables the second night - excellent although the sauce served with the meal was VERY hot!. Most tables in the restaurant have rather unique padded bench seats with a back that forms a beautifully made curved-top screen keeping the diners at one table separate from diners at other tables. A very enjoyable stay!

My partner and I had a lovely stay at the Ripple Hill Hotel in Patensie. Clean, comfortable rooms with everything you need for a short stay. Nice bar area, and beautifully furnished. A charming accommodation.
