Your hospitality is unparalleled! How you managed to host the 6 of us for two months is a marvel and a miracle. A true testament to your generosity and jovial spirit. The Cottage was perfect for our family and we had everything we needed to feel totally at home. Thank you for allowing our 4 boys to become part of your family. They loved the interaction with their "surrogate grandparents". We truly enjoyed Ridgeway Close and will remember our 2 months there with joy and gratitude. Greg & Mindy Kiker. Florida. USA

Thank you Uncle Charles & Aunty Margie for having us to dinner in your house the night before we left. We really enjoyed the lasagne as we have not had it since our Grandma made it when we were in the USA. The Melk Tert was delicious and we are glad you gave us the recipe so we can make it when we get home. Also thanks for making Joe's 5th birthday cake and for letting us help you. We had a fun time spreading (and eating) the frosting and to see the shape of a lion's head appear. He loved his cake. It was so good of you to welcome us into your home to chat and to use the computer to play games. It was fun when your grand daughters were there to play with us. We are so sad to leave you in Pietermaritzburg and have enjoyed ourselves very much at Ridgeway Close but we are looking forward to going home in December after a year away. We will miss you guys. Please come and visit us in Florida. With love from Nate, Ned, Joe and Sam Kiker. Florida USA

Ridgeway Close offers everything. Charles & Margie are so friendly and welcoming that we never felt as though we were away from home. The 2 bedroom De Luxe Unit is so spacious and comfortable and it turned into our 2nd home for the two months that the group from our company stayed here. Thank you Margie for the delicious breakfasts and dinners. Highly recommended for a long term stay and we will see you again in 2013. Monde. Moteko Construction. Gauteng.

I cannot begin to express my gratitude and appreciation to you for opening your doors to me. Your hospitality was more than I expected and the month I spent at Ridgeway Close really helped to make my relocation to Pietermaritzburg so much easier. I have stayed in many B&B's before and your establishment surpasses all my previous experiences. I felt safe and welcome and I was extremely sad to leave the comfort and friendliness you offer. I wish you all the best. Definitely a 5* experience. Khanyo. South Africa

I stayed in 'The Flat' for 2 months while doing research at the University and various schools in Pietermaritzburg. I had an absolutely lovely stay! My husband was with me for the first 2 weeks and Charles picked us up from Durban airport. Because it was late Margie had complimentary sandwiches, fruit and juice for us on arrival. I had no negative experiences, not even close. If I had any problems or questions I contacted Margie or Charles and they helped me right away. They made me feel safe and welcome. The facilities and cleanliness in The Flat were very good. Ridgeway Close is central, close to the university and a shopping mall which was great as I did not have a car. I would highly recommend Ridgeway Close for anyone going to Pietermaritzburg. Anne Grethe Soensthagen. Norway.

We booked The Cottage for our party of 5. We were in Pietermaritzburg for the World BMX Championships. The accommodation was extremely comfortable, spotlessly clean and was a welcome "home" after a long, busy day. Our hosts were great and nothing was too much trouble. Secure storage for our valuable bikes was available and we enjoyed a lovely evening in their home for a delicious chicken & prawn curry dinner. New Zealand BMX Team members. 2010

We stayed in the De Luxe Unit. From heaters to big fluffy white towels, hair dryers and an iron we had everything we needed. I would definitely recommend Ridgeway Close and we will definitely be back. Thank you for your warm hospitality, for always giving us directions and for the chocolate cake! Rene Lotter. South Africa. 2010

Our family had a wonderful 5 night stay in the De Luxe unit. Margie made us feel very welcome and our accommodation had everything we needed and a lot more.

The facilities are impressive and the proprietors are caring, efficient and helpful. Our group of six had a good stay and could easily have stayed longer had time allowed. Highly recommended. Miss Maxine Balkisson. South Africa 2010
