  Perfect weekend break
(South Africa)   Mr G. Hillary 14 September 2008
Ridgeback House is a splendidly elegant guest house set in the beautiful winelands area. The host makes you feel right at home and the service provided is first class. The breakfast is five star and the rooms are not short of any luxury. To be recommended to any nature lover or get away couple looking for peace and tranquility.
