Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I spent an exceptional week at the Ridge!
The unit was carefully furnished, with beautiful bedsheets, pillows, a bathrobe, towels and very useful kitchen with microwave oven and a stove, fridge and kitchen bench.
The working desk/bench was useful for computing, reading, etc.
The room was skilfully decorated with flowers, the shower had wonderful soaps, shampoos etc.
The view into the green hills of Norfolk was stunning and the quiet surroundings with no noise whatsoever were highly beneficial for a deserved rest.
Thank you Phil, thank you Teneal and Taylor, thank you all so much!
I am going home restored, happy and with a wish to come back!

We stayed for a week in the delightful 1brm Ocean View Cottage. Phil met us at the airport and showed us to the accommodation which was appreciated. The self-contained cottage was clean, spacious, nicely decorated and comfortable. The kitchen had all the cooking utensils we needed and extras such as salt, pepper, coffee, tea and milk. The bathroom is spacious with a large shower and included quality soap, shampoo, conditioner, a hairdryer and the bathrobes were a lovely extra. We loved sitting on the deck in the mornings with coffee, watching the birds, chickens and also cattle on the hills in the distance. Great having a complimentary laundry for guest use too. A very peaceful spot.

We stayed in a Seaview unit at "The Ridge" The view was a wonderful one of both the rolling hills and the sea . We enjoyed this from every part of the unit, a new deck was almost completed but the view was spectacular from inside the unit . Everything was made available for a wonderful week, little extras, milk, condiments, some farm fresh eggs, a vase of garden flowers,The place was spotless with some lovely touches of beautiful linen bedding and a local phone fully charged... useful when we had a flat car battery from leaving lights on. Phil and Teneille made our stay most enjoyable. Phil had met us at the airport to guide us back to the accomodation. He had also organised car hire for us.... so finding your feet in a new place was made so easy. It was a lovely, light bright place to be in with all the facilities you could want for.

We stayed in No.7 studio apartment. Beautifully styled and an amazing mountain view! The apartment had everything you need if you choose to eat in - small cooktop, microwave, fridge (1ltre milk supplied) utensils salt/pepper, tea/coffee etc although we ate out. Beautiful soaps, shampoo/conditioner and the bed with full soft linen was so comfortable! BBQ on site and full laundry for use at no extra cost, plus a phone to take with you for local calls! Phil and Teneille were fantastic hosts, very friendly and down to earth, even arranged our car hire for us. 5 to 10 min from everything. We had an amazing stay at The Ridge and would definitely recommend this boutique accommodation.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Ridge. Phil met us at the Airport and showed us the way there. Our unit had a wonderful view to wake up to and it was close to everywhere we wanted to go!
The bed was so comfortable that I slept all night which is unheard of for me! The little added touches like the toiletries and the phone were things that really stood out for us. Being able to use the washing machine was great too so I could keep up with the washing..that never stops even on holidays!
Thank you so very much Teneille and Phil for a wonderful time! We will recommend The Ridge to everyone!

Staying at The Ridge was an absolute privilege for us! Its location is perfect, the accommodation is exactly what we wanted - comfortable and homely with everything you may need. The views from the deck kept changing, there was always something going on to watch, be it the cows or chickens or the birds. Phil was always available for a chat and on our last day when at the Airport ready to leave relieved our fears when it was somewhat unclear whether or not our plane home would actually arrive. He assured us that we would be welcome to return to The Ridge since the people he was there to meet and greet were on the incoming plane. Thank you Phil and Teneille for your genuine hospitality.

Perfectly appointed studio cabin with exquisite hinterland view. The Ridge is set in the perfect location for exploring the Island. Being welcomed at the airport and guided to the Ridge is a lovely way to start your Norfolk experience. The cabin is exactly as described and presented online, with a bonus of lovely natural bath products made in Noosa. Ladies don’t pack hair conditioner, the hair products were amazing. Herbal teas were a lovely addition.

A delightful stay, at a cosy, comfortable cottage which had been recently renovated. Tastefully decorated throughout, it was the little touches like luxury toiletries, soft linen sheets, comfortable bed and pillows , that made our stay so relaxing and comfortable. Our hosts were very friendly and happy to help make our stay memorable. Phil met us up at the airport and made sure we were settled in which all went to making our visit to Norfolk a memorable one.

The Ridge is fabulous. Spacious, incredibly comfortable (furniture and furnishings), stylish and with beautiful amenities. The location is picturesque and quiet - a bucolic setting really, yet is only a few minutes by car to Burnt Pine (the major centre on Norfolk Island). Every care and comfort has been considered and catered for. Each room has a deck with a great view. It's a warm and welcoming space - and a fabulous retreat to return to after island explorations. Wholeheartedly recommended.

Simply and tastefully decorated with scenic views over rolling countryside out to the sea. We had a very comfortable stay. A few thoughtful extras, like a phone with some credit to make local calls and some some pantry essentials made staying at The Ridge just that bit easier snd relaxing.
