We were here the second time, got rooms in the main building - old style with noise during the night (the first time we had nice rooms in the back-building, much better). Nice and friendly staff, excellent restaurant for diner.

4 of us stayed for 1 night as part of trip along Garden route. Restaurant food was excellent both for dinner and breakfast. Staff were very helpful and jolly. A pleasure to stay there.

Dear CFK16RO Thank for the review. You summed up our offering very neatly! We are constantly looking for more period furniture, and the fun element for both guests and ourselves lies in this Art Deco theme. We look forward to welcome you back some day, and show you all changes happening at the moment here at the hotel. Kind regards,... More

Dear Jetset4241 If you didn’t mention the fish that you send back, I would have thought you stayed in another hotel.

Dear solotwa Thank you for a fabulous review. It always great to see guests enjoy our offering so much. With the current exchange rate, it is most definitely a bargain for UK travellers to visit us, and enjoy all we have to offer. I would suggest a trip to the wine route in one of our classic American cars from... More

The Montagu hotel is a charming Art Deco property with many period furnishings and full of character. The rooms are excellent, and the staff are friendly and helpful. The food, however, doesn't live up to the surroundings. Dinner (a mild lamb curry substituted for the lamb chops which were not available) was very average and the vegetables were overcooked.

Situated in the most convenient spot to shops and restaurants, this hotel has beautiful gardens and very professional staff. The spa prices and services are not to be found in many places so a spa treatment is definitely a must.
