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. Attractive patios inside and out for lounging. Rooms comfortable and big. With patio too. Dining room spacious and clean and they even have a piano player. Recommended for... More

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

My friend and I went for their spa special and found the staff warm and friendly specially the manager PJ.

Dear Christine D Thank you for the comprehensive review! You will be glad to hear that apart from adding new treatments in the wellness centre, we also finished painting the whole building for a nice new fresh look. Room 6 also received some attention, now boasting Art Deco headboards to match the rest of the furniture. We look forward to... More

My mom and I decided on a whim to stay here as they had a really great winter special. We were pleasantly surprised by the town of Montagu, which has a lot to offer.

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

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.
