Ridgesea guesthouse is definitely a stunning choice to make. The rooms are spacious and neatly laid out. The breakfast is very tasty and the service is great. The manager and her staff are always friendly and ready to assist when needed. This guesthouse is suitable for work stay over or for holidays. It is like home away from home

I stayed here for two nights. The room is very spacious, the bathroom offers two basins, a bath and shower. Our room overlooked the pool. Very comfortable stay and the hospitality made our stay here even better. We will definitely be back.

Myself and my boyfriend stayed here as my boyfriend was running the Comrades marathon for the second time and we weren't overly impressed with Durban last year.
