This was one of our best holidays ever and we could not have asked for a better experience. Gary and Tosca will give you the best tips and service no matter how long your stay.


We were at the lodge for 6 nights and I could have done with another 3 weeks before heading back to PE. Everything is at your fingertips location wise and you have a fantastic view of the harbour.

The lodge has beautiful gardens and you feel relaxed.

“Very Pleasant stay at Ridgeview Lodge in Durban”

4 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 weeks ago


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 the scenery of the ocean and harbour. Tosca was very helpful in showing us which places to visit. The maps were particularly helpful. The helping staff, too, Benjamin and Sara were very courteous.


"Luxury at a realistic price."


This a real home from home meticulously clean and very comfortable. The breakfast was wholesome and delicious and the view of Durban from the dining. bar and front porch is panoramic.



"Lovely Guest House"


We liked everything.

I visited Durban with a friend for two nights. This was a lovely guest house. The hosts were really helpful and gave us maps and recommendations for our travels onwards from Durban. We loved the breakfast. Location and parking was great. The gardens and view were wonderful.



"Tosca and Gary are excellent hosts

they make you feel right at home."


Tosca and Gary went out of their way to ensure that everything was to my satisfaction. The breakfast every morning was really first class I really enjoyed my stay in their lovely room and the chats we had. If I ever have to stay near Berea again I wouldn't think twice about booking my room with those two lovely people again



"Excellent value for money!"
