“Excellent value for money”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

We had an awesome 2 night stay at the Dune Ridge Country House. The room was large, private, well decorated and spotlessly clean. The bathroom was really spacious and we had the most spectacular views of the front garden from our patio. The lounge is spacious and very comfortable with excellent decor. Our highlight was the scrumptious breakfasts, served in a well laid out dinning room, which included a buffet with many choices and a full cooked breakfast of your choice, which was masterfully prepared and presentation was top class. The staff are professional, the ambiance unbelievable, the setting very peaceful, which assisted in making the whole experience one I will repeat in the not to distant future.

Room Tip: Room 1, close to the pool and extensive front garden.

We had a wonderful 2 night stay at the Dune RIdge Country House. The rooms are large and very comfortable with private patio area overlooking the garden. The under floor heating in the bathroom was a real bonus. Breakfasts were amazing, plenty of choice with homemade bread.
We would recommend the Dune RIdge to any one who likes a quiet peaceful location and are already planning a return visit

We had a wonderful stay at Dune ridge country lodge. Our every need was very thoughtfully provided by friendly and efficient staff. Fresh,local flowers were placed everywhere amidst the sumptious lodge decor. Our room was luxurious and comfortable with an en suite, which had heated floors,that supplied everything we needed.Breakfast was masterfully presented and showed all the signs of a skilful chef at work. The gardens are magnificent and the fauna and flora is unspoilt and very rewarding. This place is not your average 'home from home'experience, it is something special! Real food for the soul.

We went to Dune Ridge for a small second honeymoon. Sarah put in so much effort to make the weekend special. From sham pain and strawberries to dinner in front of the fireplace. Thank you for a amazing weekend. We will see you again soon!

I have been fortunate to have stayed at the Dune Ridge Country House numerous times over the last year for business. The attention to detail is brilliant, the food is amazing and the comfort of the stay is second to none.
The hostess, Sarah, can be proud of herself. Her passion for this establishment is evident.
