Very good location,excellent view of Maydon Wharf from the verandah/bar/lounge. Bed was noisy, Room was very good. Vehicle gate closes too quickly, can knock into vehicle when entering or leaving premises. The gardens are beautiful and very well maintained. Generally the property is well maintained. Breakfast times are inflexible.

This was my second time staying during a business trip and overall had a good experience and value for money. Staff is very friendly and attentive, and breakfast is made specially on order. Everything is neat, clean and comfortable.

Right from touch down at King Shaka airport, my wife (Isabelle) and I felt safe and secure when a taxi booked through Ridgeview Lodge came to collect us. We were pleasantly surprised at how beautiful the lodge was and the warm reception from Tosca and Gary. The room was great, neat and comfortable. We liked the surroundings, the greenery, and...

Eating is not allowed in the bedrooms due... More

Amazing rooms, great view and the owner of the place is really fun and gives a lot of advices on where to go to eat and what to see and to do around. Nice pool, tropical-style huge garden and great bar! Low prices too..
