Ridgesea Guest House
Ranked #23 of 43 Umhlanga Rocks B&B and Inns
Reviewed 19 June 2014

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. Umhlanga was a much better location for us and Ridgesea Guest House is perfectly located for the beach, bars and restaurants - all within walking distance. The guest house is adequately equipped, spacious, light and airy. Our room was particularly spacious and comfortable. But the main reason we would stay here again is Felicity's hospitality. Before we arrived she had helped me with recommendations on places to eat in the area. We then received a warm welcome upon arrival and Felicity was always on hand but not in any way obtrusive creating a very laid back atmosphere. She ensured we felt comfortable during our stay and even made my boyfriend a chocolate birthday cake as we were celebrating that during our stay. Breakfast, as mentioned in other reviews, was outstanding. We will be back!

We stayed at Ridgesea for 7 nights and we thoroughly enjoyed our time at the guest house. On our arrival we were warmly welcomed by Felicity. My husband arranged a birthday surprise for me - and Felicity went out of her way to ensure it was beautiful and memorable - arranging a divine Death by Chocolate cake, drinks, flowers and rose petals. Thank you Felicity and Phumi for your hard work and friendliness. Much appreciated.

Room Tip: Avoid ground floor rooms facing parking lot.

We spent a fantastic half-term at Ridgesea. Rooms were spacious, clean and well appointed. Felicity was the perfect hostess and her breakfasts are delicious and way too generous. Great location. We'll definitely be back.

My sister and I booked in for about 10days, we received a very warm welcome from Felicity, and made to feel at home straight away. Rooms was airy and very comfortable. Breakfast was outstanding and we could not have asked for better service. So thanks Felicity and we will be back again.

We stayed at Ridgesea during early Jan 2013 and really had a great experience.

Recieved a warm welcome from Felicity and Thembi and felt at home immediately.
Breakfasts were scrumptuous and very well prepared.

Our room was very comfortable and spacious, and the air conditioning was heaven sent in the hot, humid weather.

Very close to Umhlangha beach and Gateway Mall.

Overall a great stay, we will definitely return.

Room Tip: Rooms upstairs have an ocean view.
