My husband and I were thrilled when he won a complimentary stay (bed and breakfast for two nights) including back and neck massages as well as a trip in one of their vintage vehicles at The Montagu Country Hotel for two people. We made use of the opportunity and stayed over on 5 and 6 December 2014. From the time... More

What a fantastic surprise this hotel was. From internet photos and it's star rating, we weren't expecting too much, other than a place to rest our heads for a night. We certainly were pleasantly surprised. The staff were very friendly and professional. The food (both dinner and breakfast) was very tasty indeed. The room (11 in the main hotel) was... More

Dear Travelling-Ninja Thank you for the great review - the first review from a ninja, and I'm glad we impressed you! The thing with star rating is a long debate, and we will most probably go to 4 star in the end. Our competition would all be 4 star guest houses or lodges, a much easier grading to achieve than...

This is the most wonderful place! Food and comfort of top quality and still with a special country charm. Live piano every night, comfortable beds and the staff of Gert Lubbe and PJ Basson is like a family. Also enjoy special day trips in a Cadillac with either Gert or PJ. It really is a great place to visit all... More

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

When in Montagu or even passing through, you would be missing out if you do not stay here for at least ons night, just to savour the experience. Beautifully furnished and maintained, lovely garden settings and pure country hospitality at its best awaits you.

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.
