I use Ridgeview Lodge for our business travel to Durban. We have to be fairly close to the harbour for our work. I found the lodge a great place to stay and is close to restaurants and a shopping mall. Gary and Tosca are great hosts and very accommodating. I recommend you to go and experience the great views from their place and the spacious rooms.
