A lovely, peaceful haven surrounded by beautiful fynbos. Best sleep we've had in two weeks of a road trip! Breakfasts were really good, the one dinner we had there was excellent. The staff were attentive without being intrusive and made it a most relaxing stay.

The rooms are beautifully furnished. The level of service and attention to detail was exceptional. Suzette and the other staff members made us feel at home and went to great lengths to ensure we enjoyed our stay. We would love to return and have no hesitation in recommending this gem of a hotel!

Absolutely gorgeous country house, with amazing rooms, great service and fabulous staff. There is absolutely nothing for me to criticise about this place. The Cape st Francis and the canals are both beautiful little villages in the surrounding areas and there are some good restaurants in town as well/

Stayed 3 nights. Brendon an absolute star. Excellent breakfast. Pool area attractive. Room a little dated. A few minutes by car from the village centre, and a bit further to the canals. The links golf club on the doorstep.

I have stayed at Dune Ridge four times in the past 12 months - sometimes a month in duration. Sarah and the team made my visits feel like home and their kindness was much appreciate when you're 10,000 miles from home. Mr. Paul
