Ridge House is an outstanding location with amazing hosts. We had the queen room (Kotare) as we liked the double aspect and it was spacious, with a very comfortable bed and it lacked nothing. So much attention to detail by our hosts, Kim and Glen, who obviously know just what a weary t traveller needs. Nice to be able to...

One of the few places we stayed during our 3 1/2 week tour around New Zealand where we truly felt at home. The house is absolutely gorgeous, both Kim and Glen were so sweet and the most amazing hosts.

Only a stones throw from Gisborne City, yet you feel like you are a world away from civilisation. From our luxurious guest room we woke to the stunning views over Poverty Bay and beyond to Mahia peninsular. It was perfection with everything thoughtfully provided on our wedding night. Early check-in made for the perfect location for the Bridal party preparations....

From the moment we arrived we just loved this place. Kim and Glen are terrific hosts and throughout our stay could not have done more to make us feel welcome and enjoy our stay with them.

My husband and I had our wedding here in December 2015. Ridge house was absolutely perfect for what we wanted. The house, the garden and the views are stunning! There was plenty for room for us to put up a marquee for 85 people for a sit down meal, and a great area with spectacular views for dancing, drinking and...

We spent two days here in January and would have liked to stay longer! It's a well-designed modern bungalow in a fantastic location near the top of a hill, a couple of miles outside Gisborne, which is an unspectacular but very pleasant little town. We had superb views from our room of the hills on one side and the sea...

The two days we spent at Ridge House were the highlight of our holiday to the East coast.
