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. Everything has been refurbished and the quality of everything in the room and bathroom is excellent. The gardens were in full spring bloom and made one feel as if... More

We spent 1 night here and enjoyed a comfortable night in what was a rather dark room, but nice anyway. There is a nice pool area and it was good to watch the birds whilst enjoying a drink in the garden. We enjoyed a lovely buffet meal in the evening, we were part of a group and there was another...

We had this hotel recommended to us by friends in Cape Town. We were not disappointed, it is the most lovely building filled with interesting and beautiful furniture and everyday items from the art deco period. We were warmly welcomed by the reception staff and they helped us with our furniture to the most gorgeous room in the victorian house... More

We decided to head inland on the final day of our 'garden route' drive to Capetown and by chance discovered this little gem of a hotel in Montegu. We booked a 'luxury' room which was enormous, including a great and well done out bathroom. The staff were all so friendly and helpful. We had dinner and breakfast there and both... More

Dear Shane C We are so glad you ended up in Montagu and the hotel - thank you for the great review. Route 62 is the link between Cape Town and the Garden Route, and much more scenic option than N2 highway. Montagu is halfway between these 2 popular destinations, and is a perfect stopover or base to explore the... More

Lovely lounges with deco furniture and piano and even a pair of Indonesian puppets on display. Gives a feeling of yesteryear. Nice garden with pools and water features, attractive even in winter.

Dear Froffarc Thank you for the review. The 2 Indonesian Puppets referred to was a gift from regular guests, as is many pieces - especially Art Deco - in the hotel. Part of the fun - and challenge! - of running the hotel is constantly changing the décor to get it closer to our end goal. I'm glad you enjoyed... More

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.

Dear NikiAustris Route 62 is the iconic road connecting Cape Town and the Garden Route, and Montagu is bang in the middle. So I fully agree that we are the ideal stop on Route 62, with enough to do in the area to spend a couple of nights at least. I'm glad you had a good stay, we look forward... More
