A lovey family run place with a very friendly welcome. We loved the gorgeous pool area, the selection of games and DVDs, pretty terrace and lounge and the honesty bar. The room was lovey and well equipped, only scored down slightly as there was no air con but we had ceiling fans and felt safe enough to leave the windows... More

Beautiful Dutch style farm house set in attractive grounds, approx 10kms from Plettenberg. Spacious and stylishly decorated interior, with long shaded verandah. Liz, Mel & Brian made us very welcome, offering suggestions for places to visit/eat, inc making reservations. Excellent breakfast. We'd definitely rebook on return to Plett.

Staying in properties where the owners/managers have high standards and have thought of everything is a surprisingly rare treat. Fynbos Ridge is one of those special places where it’s incredibly difficult to find fault! A beautiful property set in stunning and immaculately kept gardens (“we just try to tame it”) that are full of surprises and secret areas, the house... More

It's a lovely place to stay. We stayed with adjoining rooms so we were able to enjoy a quiet evening reading after bedtime with a informal bar arrangement. There is no evening food at the moment. Breakfast was lovely. There is no air con but fans were fine, even though it was scorching hot. The outdoor pool was fun for... More

Great value. Felt like home away from home. Clean spacious room with modern bathroom and comfortable bed. Nothing was too much trouble (including special breakfast request, umbrella for the beach). I would definitely go back

Just returned from our 4th visit staying in one of the lovely cottages. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this peaceful relaxing spot to all our friends & family. The location is just perfect, accommodation & grounds are beautiful. Mel, Liz & Brian are fab super helpful hosts. We feel relaxed the minute we arrive & are never ready to leave.

We stayed at Fynbos Ridge for a week over the Christmas period. We wanted somewhere quiet and peaceful before our trip home to the UK after having spent 2 weeks in Cape Town - so it was ideal. The surroundings were beautiful. The only sounds were bird song.....This is not a "boutique hotel" but would be rather like staying in... More

We had 3 great nights at the Fynbos Ridge . The view from the cottage is amazing and allows you to really feel in nature. The cottage was well equipped with everything that we needed. The kids enjoyed the pool. Liz and family are very kind people and did their utmost to let us feel welcomed.
