The supper was absolute the best ever!!Please make a flowerbed with bricks 1meter away from that telephone pole in the middle of knowhere so that one can feel them before you hit the pole. Damaged our car and mirror broken.

Ripple Hill is beautifully situated at the foot of the famous Baviaanskloof with surrounding lush gardens. If it is serenity you want this is just the place for you! Staff are all respectfull, helpful and friendly. Homely pub where it is easy to meet the locals in a very relaxed atmosphere. The Restaurant boasts superb food. Their steaks beat some of the best in the country! Rooms have nice old wooden floors and very clean.The few downs are the fact that the Hotel is old and lacking some of its earlier lustre. The up is that there are signs of "Renovations in progress" posted.Will we go there...
