We returned to stay after a three year gap. Very comfortable and well appointed rooms. Very friendly service from the staff and owners and nice walks in the vineyards. Compared with other similar places the breakfast could be more creative but otherwise a very nice place to stay

Great accommodation within the vineyards of Ridgeback wines. Large and well furnished room with well stocked bar, Dstv and Wifi. Good breakfast and coffee to follow at the poolside. Will definitely be back.

False advertising. Pictures of the rooms depict baths in the bathrooms, yet there was no bath. Additionally, rooms are advertised as "twin room with twin beds," however when you arrive, they demand extra payment for 2 people to sleep in the twin beds. Not impressed.

Good afternoon
Re your comments expressed in trip advis0r, we would like to comment as follows.

We take the strongest exception to you accusing us of false advertising. Our rooms are clearly show as those with bathrooms or those with showers. We also do advise guests whether the rooms have twin beds or king size beds to give our guests a choice.

Our rates clearly state per person, you booked through a hotel booking site called Agoda, for one person and brought an additional person with you. I checked the Agoda sight and is also clearly states per person. If you have any problem, you should take it up with Agoda as we have the voucher sent by Agoda clearly stating one person.

You may be less impressed as we are taking this further.
Kind regards

Ridgeback House is a welcome oasis of peace and tranquility. We were warmly welcomed by Vanessa, our hostess.
The setting is beautiful - a home in the vineyards which can be rented as a whole or as separate rooms. Our bedroom was well appointed - loads of cupboard space, comfortable beds, a small patio with views over the vineyards and a well sized bathroom. The mini-bar was well stocked with the addition of a well-thought of basket of snacks which could also be purchased. An honesty bar was set up in the very comfortable sitting room and contained a range of wines, including those from the wine farm on which the guesthouse is situated.
A swimming pool is available providing welcome relief in the hot summer months.
Vanessa and her assistant provided us with a delicious breakfast - fresh fruit and yogurt, a choice of breakfast cereals, cold meats and cheese and the option of a cooked breakfast - the omelette was delicious.
Ridgeback House is well situated to visit nearby Paarl wine farms and not too far from Stellenbosch.
