We had visited this hotel about 5 years ago. We returned to celebrate a birthday(staff was informed on booking). When we arrived we were simply pointed in the direction of our room. Since it is not a busy hotel and not a particularly long distance surely we could have been escorted. It was a chilly winters' day and the heater/aircon... More

We were three friends who wanted a relaxing weekend away. The Montagu Country Hotel was everything we had imagined and more! My room was clean, comfortable and with everything that I needed. The staff were friendly, efficient and the food was excellent. The hotel itself is absolutely delightful with gorgeous Art Deco furniture. The pianist who played at various times... More

Dear margeland We are glad you ended up staying with us, and that you enjoyed your stay so much. Our whole idea is to offer an experience different to what you would find at the next hotel, and the Art Deco angle goes a long way to achieve this. Route 62 is a must when visiting South Africa, and Montagu... More

This hotel is much, much more than just a hotel - it's an experience of style, charm and romance. The owner and management deserve a medal for creating such a jewel in the countryside (platteland). If you want attention to detail, you cannot drive pass the Montagu Country Hotel. (And what a garden!)

We received excellent service from the staff. The rooms and the hotel in general, are beautifully decorated. It is like stepping into another era - romantic and very stylish. In addition to the lovely accommodation, we also wish to extend our complements to the Montagu Country Hotel for the exquisite, well kept gardens. It is truly a haven of tranquility.... More

We have been visited this hotel for a couple of years now and this hotel is still 'home from home'. The hotel staff are really the best! The food and rooms are excellent. Do not pass Montagu without a visit to this beautiful gem.

What a wonderful hotel to stay in. We spent the weekend on a Spa package and were treated like a King and a Queen. Room 44 is a luxury room but worth the little extra. It is situated towards to back of the property, was spacious and remarkably beautiful. We had two porches we could use to sit and relax... More
