This is what a very well run hotel is all about. Top rate service, good honest homemade food of the highest order, spotlessly clean ( from the main kitchen to the toilets ), beautiful gardens and an excellent pianist at supper. What more can you ask for ? To top it, a first class manager ( P.J. ) and the... More

Dear Wynand S Thank you for the comprehensive review, much appreciated! I'm glad you had such a good time with us, we look forward to seeing you soon. We've realised that so many people in Gauteng don't know about Montagu, Route 62 etc, and have put some marketing actions in place to change that. Kind regards, P-J Basson General Manager More

Old world hotel - like stepping back in time to the 40s or 50s. Does not have a lift. My husband and I stayed one night - the shower-room was very small and could do with updating. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

Dear maccoin Thank you for the review. The Art Deco period was basically the period between the world wars, so up to the mid forties. We have a vast collection of furniture and décor from that period, and it's the core of our theme. Yes, no lift, but then again, only one floor, with the majority of rooms on ground... More

Old time furnishings add to the quaint character of this charming hotel. Short distance from the wine farms of Arniston and Robertson areas and attractions around Montagu. Safe off-street parking facility.

Stayed 1 night. Big mistake not staying longer. This hotel is like a time ship, you could see Poirot staying here. My wife and I loved it. Staff were fantastic and nothing was to much trouble, the only mlnor point is the main pool isn't heated. Used pool however and the waiter serving Dom Pedro's at poolside made us forget... More

I was thrilled to be sponsored accommodation at MCH when I came to this quaint little town to present a campaign idea to the local retailers.

I stayed at this hotel when on an organised tour of South Africa and was part of a group of 36 people. I was shown to my room and was stunned - it was a very small twin room, even with the lights on it was dark. The en-suite was not in great condition and the shower in my opinion... More

The lovely soft mattrass, soft pillows and quiet surrounds made our stop-over in Montagu a very good experience. The rooms, in this historic building, are exceptionally large as is the bathroom.
