Nice little Hotel on the way from Oudthoorn to Capetown. Very classic with typical Karoo atomsophere. Rooms neat, spacey and clean, Breakfast was rich. All in all highly recommended as stop over on Route-62.

You can't go to Montagu without having dinner at the Montagu Country Hotel where they serve the best lamb shank in the Klein Karoo! Falling off the bone and all that ...an olde world dining experience where nothing too much trouble for the super attentive and friendly waitresses, and Oom Kosie tinkles masterfully at his piano in the background.

What a charming property. Renovations where happening but never interfered with the guest experience. At least you know the property is being upgraded the whole time. I would recommend taking a tour of Montague in the classic vintage vehicle, PJ does a very educational tour. The staff are warm and welcoming and the accommodation comfortable and caters well for children.... More

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

Dear margeland We are glad you ended up staying with us, and that you enjoyed your stay so much.
