About Ripple Hill Hotel
On the brim of the magnificent Baviaanskloof Mega Reserve, in the heart of the citrus farming community of Patensie, lies the Ripple Hill Hotel. Built in 1946, the hotel carries an old-school charm and character, with raised ceilings and wooden floors throughout.
Relax on the patio and take in the scenery of the tractor traffic humming by, whilst enjoying the best steak in town or a sundowner drink.
We offer newly renovated rooms, a restaurant with extensive a la carte menu, and a cosy pub with big screen TV, air-conditioning, and a fireplace. We also cater for small functions.

Perfect for the more adventurous being the gateway to Baviaanskloof Nature Reserve but you do need a four-wheel drive vehicle. Hotel a bit tired in places but a great atmosphere. Staff helpfull food good had the best steak here whilst in South Africa.
After an exhausting day through Baviaanskloof, the comfort of the rooms and the facilities made for a uniquely refreshing experience. The chef cooks the best steak you can think of and the chicken cordon bleu was equally top quality. Well done.
The stay was from the Friday until the Monday it was all nice and clean. The breakfast was good on the Saturday morning. We went the afternoon to a wedding when we got back late after ten and wanted to by water they informed us the hotel is closed on a Sunday and no beds will be made and if need any towels me must come and ask. They still ask us the full rate for the day. We only saw afterwards on the web they are closed on a Sunday. But further more nice and quiet place to stay at.
Good old country style hotel. Very friendly and welcoming atmosphere.
Had a very pleasant stay in a well appointed, comfortable room. Food and drinks extremely good value for money. Had a rip roaring party with the very friendly locals in the pub. All in all a very pleasant stay. Thanks.
