Great accommodation within the vineyards of Ridgeback wines. Large and well furnished room with well stocked bar, Dstv and Wifi. Good breakfast and coffee to follow at the poolside. Will definitely be back.

False advertising. Pictures of the rooms depict baths in the bathrooms, yet there was no bath. Additionally, rooms are advertised as "twin room with twin beds," however when you arrive, they demand extra payment for 2 people to sleep in the twin beds. Not impressed.

Ridgeback House is a welcome oasis of peace and tranquility. We were warmly welcomed by Vanessa, our hostess. The setting is beautiful - a home in the vineyards which can be rented as a whole or as separate rooms. Our bedroom was well appointed - loads of cupboard space, comfortable beds, a small patio with views over the vineyards and...

We stayed here for one night. Lovely comfortable room with a super king bed. Tea/coffee making facilities in the room. Great balcony with views over the vineyard. Turn back service with chocolate on the pillow. Very helpful friendly staff. I would definitely come back here.

My wife and I were visiting our son in nearby Paarl and were thrilled with our accommodation on this working wine farm just outside the town. Our two hostesses and the maid provided excellent service throughout, the breakfasts were wonderful (We chose the English, Benedict and kipper options from a very wide choice of mains.) and our room was everything...

This is such a wonderful place to visit and relax. Very inviting and hospitable people, a quiet and comfortable facility, with a top notch winery just down the road. I really appreciated the great help and suggestions for dinner (Terra Mare in Paarl was awesome - go there!), arranging taxi service (Christo is great), and some special touches (drinking water...

Okay, so I did not realise that this was a quaint old farmhouse on a wine farm. Was pleasantly surprised to find this out (Ridgeback wines, duh). Guests get complimentary wine tasting which is another win, obviously. The views from the porch are amazing. The hosts are most helpful - even though not allowed we were able to check in...

for Vanessa and her team to ensure we got the most out of our stay. We stayed for two nights, and that just wasn't enough time here. The rooms are well appointed, spotlessly clean, and beds large and very comfortable. To make the most of being in such a great location we left the car keys behind and used a...

I stayed over for one night. The staff was very friendly and helpful. No complaints as such except for aircon that needs a service because it does not matter on which temperature it is, it stays cold. Finding the guesthouse is confusing and the fact that there is no way to communicate with the guesthouse if you are stuck at...

We moved from the above mentioned venue to this guest house. What a totally different experience! From the little flower from the garden to the manager welcoming us. She could not do enough to assist us with our requirements. Beautiful house, stunning surroundings. Hospitable - a great experience and our guest from Melbourne agrees wholeheartedly!
