My husband and I spent a few nights at Dune Ridge in September 2014 and returned in December 2014 for another stay. We found the staff so friendly, yet very professional. We were out all day and only returned in the evening and it felt just like we were returning to a lovely country house belonging to friends! Next time... More

We went away for the weekend to celebrate our 1st Wedding Anniversary. Dune Ridge really made our stay special, with dinners at the fire-place, a couples massage, private breakfast on the patio. Perfect

We spent a few nights at this establishment during September 2014 and was absolutely blown away buy the professionalism and friendliness of the staff, they definitely set the standard in the industry. From the bush massages we enjoyed to the 'Michelin Star' style dining, we would without a doubt recommend this place if you're looking for extra bit of special... More

We were received with smiling staff, Service was excellent, food was excellent, very friendly staff. Overall very good stay over, just the faulty gas powered fireplace that bugged us (on a very cold evening)

Dear Reynier and Family Thank you for the review. I must apologise for the gas fireplace, we have looked into this and it seems it was an airlock in the piping. We did however ensure that there were normal oil heaters on in the evenings, as well as electric blankets on the childrens beds and hot water bottles in the... More

Tucked away from the bay, we stayed in an extremely spacious cottage behind the main building with all the amenities one would need. It was a bit chilly and though the fireplace did not work, a heater was readily provided on request (hot water bottles are also provided during turn-down service). Dinner was a real highlight of our short stay.... More

Stayed 2 nights DBB in a garden suite. This really is a place to relax and be pampered. From arrival to leaving we received the highest care and attention - and it seemed to happen as if it is the norm to all the staff and not any effort. Our room was large and comfortable with a large bathroom and... More

I had the pleasure of spending two nights while on business. The Dune Ridge is not just a place to stay and dine it a whole experience of the most enjoyable order of magnitude. The finish and detail in the bedrooms if followed through to the dining and service without fail. If you are looking for a magical retreat and... More

We truly enjoyed being pampered. I would particularly recommend Dune Ridge over Christmas when St Francis Bay gets so noisy. We stayed in a family unit and could entertain our friends in privacy. Breakfast was a treat.

Our family of two adults and two children stayed for 5 nights at Dune Ridge in Jan '14. Dune Ridge is a small establishment and there were very few other guests at the time of our stay so we literally had the place to ourselves except for a day or two, which made it very peaceful and quiet. The rooms... More
