Avoid the new age plastic hotels and immerse yourself in warmth. Relax in front of real fires in the lounges, sherry at arrival, zen gardens, quaint art deco furniture, spa baths en suite (if you opt for it), and authentic staff.

Vintage decor hotel in an easy to find location, close to amenities, and surrounded by beautiful greenery. Staff is friendly and accommodating. Neat and clean rooms and general areas. The dinners are a must have! Beef Fillet cooked to perfection, and WILL NOT disappoint!

The staff kindly let us park in their private car park before check-in, and we found the service to be excellent throughout. Our room was spacious, and had been decorated with some interesting furniture. The bed was big and comfortable. The bathroom did not have the bath mentioned on the booking confirmation and the tv was tiny! We didn't bother... More

Recently we stayed at the Montagu Country Hotel for a week. One of the reason was/is because they are Pet Friendly. The Staff were very pleasant and friendly and felt like family.

Definitely meets my expectations of town accommodation. Apart from the hotel, Montagu is a wonderful town and a real pleasure to go to for relaxation after the hustle of city living. The hotel is comfortable and you leave with a sense of having recharged your batteries. Have been to the hotel a few times and will definitely return again, especially... More

I think I can say this is about my favourite hotel ever, and I have been in quite a few of them all over the world! This is not just a hotel, it's a retreat into the 1930s, with atmosphere abounding. There is a main hotel building, with outbuildings amid lovely quaint gardens, all very close to the main building,... More

We always have an amazing time at the Montagu Country Hotel. Gert, PJ and the staff are friendly and so accommodating. The newly renovated rooms in the main hotel are luxurious with the most stunning views of the mountains. A wonderful three night stay. Will definitely return soon.

This is aunique and extremely charming modernistic hotel. Walking into it is literally stepping back into the 1920's era but with all the mod cons of the 21st century. The interior is decorated top to bottom art nouveau style with furnishings and furniture authentic to the era. Each bedroom has its own unique style with high ceilings, huge bathrooms and... More
