Reviewed 3 March 2014

After a long drive from Franschoeck, the sight of Fynbos Ridge and it's tranquil setting was just what I needed. The welcome was great and their advice on where to eat much appreciated. Would definitely return.

A truly magical place. Brian and Liz are perfect hosts who are supported by an excellent team.We stayed in Plumbago which is a lovely room on the terrace with a great view of the hills in the distance. The room was all that could be wished for.
The whole house is beautifully decorated - Liz has great taste and skill and Brian produced some wonderful Dinners for us - his breakfasts really set you up for the day.
We can't wait to return and enjoy the luxury, peace and hospitality of Fynbos Ridge.

We hope that your first visit to South Africa won't be your last - you will have to come and see the view from your room now....I have redone the garden, and chopped out a lot to open the view up more. Thanks for taking the time to submit a review, and your kind comments.

This is the place where you feel treated like royalty. We had a downstairs room which was huge, big bed, fantastic linen and furniture - luxurious bathroom and private garden and patio. Everything is decorated beautifully. The location is wonderful, private and secure. Breakfast is full of choices and perfectly cooked. Served on the patio with fantastic views of the mountains. Charming and attentive hosts and staff. They have a honesty bar that is well stocked and offer an evening meal that was wonderful. Only thing we would have liked to have seen was a price list at the honesty bar - it just makes everything transparent. We felt the wine at the evening meal was pricey.

Thank you for the review, and for the good suggestion. We will be putting a price list into the bar as requested, and should have thought of that sooner! We are glad that you enjoyed your stay.

What a treat to have stayed at Fynbos Ridge, we had a perfect weekend there. The moment we stepped into the the two bedroom cottage we were won over! The finish and attention to detail in each room is suburb. Comfy beds, great towels, dressing gowns, little box of bathroom items incase you forgot your toothbrush, and the kitchen was so well equipped, even recipe books available so you could cook up a storm! The fireplaces and braai were laid daily and we had the biggest comfiest couch to relax and watch movies together.
Outside there are the most incredible views both from the cottage and the pool area, we were in Plett to visit the area but we just wanted to stay at our cottage, relax by the pool, and eat great meals!
Each morning we were cooked breakfast by our wonderful hosts, Liz and Brian. They were attentive, personable and excellent hosts.
Overall, I can definitely say we loved our stay here! Thank you...

Room Tip: We stayed in Aristea Cottage, perfect in every way!

Lovely surroundings. Tranquil and peaceful. Nice rooms and common areas. A lovely B & B. While not on the sea the surroundings and gardens make up for that. Wish there was A/C and good wi-fi speed. However in the end we did not really mind the lack of it.

Thank you for your comments, and we are glad that you enjoyed your stay with us. We do not normally need air-conditioners in our area, but had a terrible heatwave in January this year. I must admit, I also wished that I had an air-conditioner! Luckily we normally have much milder weather.
We hope that you come to visit Fynbos Ridge again if you are in our area.

Very positive surprise to find this stately yet homely overnight accomodation on our way from Cape Town via Plett to Joburg. We definitely want to come again - next time with better weather and more time.
