Gracious, welcoming and helpful hosts. Secure setting. We were in Durban unexpectedly for medical reasons but couldn't have done better in finding a place if we'd planned months in advance. Great location from which... More

Great stay at this B&B. Helpful and friendly owners (Gary and Tosca), they gave wonderful tips for restaurants, etc. Five/10 minutes driving to the main sightseeing. Nothing to complain about. Will always look to stay here when visiting Durban.

Although it was the first time I visited Durban, it felt like we were home at arrival.. The hosts were friendly, the room was clean and the breakfast to die for.. The hosts were always there to assist with any information we needed and that assisted a lot as we we not familiar with the surroundings...

Mom was paying for the whole lot and needed value for money. The teenage boys needed wifi and TV and their technology. Everybody found exactly what they needed and we had... More

We stayed over in the separate spacious freestanding unit for one night in order to attend an office function. This historical building has been well preserved and maintained and near all amenities. Honesty bar, nice pool, and excellent breakfast. Very friendly owners

We used Ridgeview as our base to attend the Durban High School u16 Water Polo Tournament. The property is within 1.5 km of the School and some really nice restaurants and is thus ideally situated for this type of excursion. The rooms were clean and comfortable with a TV and limited channels available. Tosca and Gary are friendly and attentive... More
