Due to the enthusiastic reviews on tripadvisor we decided to stay at Blommenhuis. We had very high expectations and ended up a bit disappointed. Although Irene was polite and very friendly, she kind of kept the talking to us to the minimum. She basically wished a pleasant stay, explained the keys and handed us a menu from Jessica's Restaurant -... More

Irene is an expert in everything- garden design, cooking, art, busines- you name it. Genuine Afrikaans hospitality. The garden is spectacular. The bed very comfortable with top quality linen. We stayed in the room next to the pool which was very good. Lots of bright art around the place and a great breakfast. No a/c in our room though which... More

If you are going to Montagu you must stay here. Irene goes out of her way to make your stay special and makes the best breakfasts. The house is lovely and the garden beautiful. Blommenhuis was the highlight of our two week holiday in South Africa.

Can't paise Blommenhuis and Irene enough! As a travel buyer for a large company I've stayed in some really nice hotels but I certainly wouldn't stay anywhere else in Montagu. Irene is so friendly (without being too intrusive or over-powering) and her advice on where to go and what to see was spot on. Ours was one of 3 rooms... More

We stayed at this lovely guesthouse on New Year's Eve and day as part of a two week fly drive holiday. The owner - Irene - was so welcoming yet gave us our own space. There are only three bedrooms all of which are beautifully clean and furnished. The whole house reflects a wonderful calmness and it was just so... More

We spent three nights in this charming, bed and breakfast, enjoying the peaceful garden, our comfortable bedroom and delicious breakfasts served outside. Montague has several good restaurants, interesting walks and lovely scenery. Our hostess, Irene, was most pleasant and helpful.

Blommenhuis is tucked away at the end of short drive in an extremely quiet position but within easy walking of the main street (Bath Street is an extension of the main street). It is ideally situated for the restaurants in Montagu but I would recommend you try Irene's dinners at Blommenhuis before trying the others. She is a wonderful cook!... More

We arrived at Montague for 2 nights to start our tour of R62 & Garden route. The room was lovely, the setting was out of a magazine with fabulous bedding and decor. Lovely touches of lavender on the pillows and in the bathroom. Lots of hot water and fluffy white towels. It was quite cool and there was a heater... More

From arrival Irene made us so welcome. Our room was exquisite with the finest locally made (in Montagu) monogrammed linen sheets/pillow cases. A garden full of flowers and even the new plants were tied with blue gingham ribbons. Our breakfast by the pool was the best we found in a B&B in South Africa with beautiful linen and flowers on...
