We spent a two night weekend at Dune Ridge and absolutely loved it. The place has charm and character (and these aren't fancy ways to say its old and in need of repair as estate agents use them because its not). The rooms are huge and very comfortable and the staff attentive at all times and always willing to help.... More

We arrived late afternoon and hadn't booked dinner in the main house which was a real shame. It was Valentine's day so no chance of squeezing us in. Not to worry the restaurant in town was brilliant but I would love to visit this property again in the cooler months. I was with a group of work friends on our... More

Beautiful accommodation in a lovely old style colonial property, charmingly maintained. Upbeat welcome from manager Andreas. My only criticism is the food, the service was good as was breakfast, but supper was very average. We were probably over-expecting!

A delightful place to stay. Sarah and Andreas were most helpful, especially Sarah who had to send on our passports we had foolishly left in our safe and then refused to be repaid for the cost of the courier. What a relief to get them back!

The Garden Cottages situated to the rear of the house unfortunately do not have wifi at this stage but all our other rooms do. We are in the process of getting extenders put in to reach those rooms.

We had an amazing stay at the country house as part of our honeymoon. The hotel is very nicely decorated, with beautiful gardens and surroundings. The staff at Dune Ridge has also been really welcoming throughout our stay, and the food was delicious. I would 100% recommend this place.
