We only ate here so we can't comment on the accommodation. The decor is frankly odd and it's in keeping with the hostess of the place who gave us a warm welcome but insisted on showing us round when it was clear we weren't much interested. We sat in the garden and had a glass of wine and ordered a... More

I booked 2 rooms at the Olive house for me and my family and what a surprise when we arrived. Nothing to do with the pictures I found on the Internet which always a lovely, colourful, charming place. Our room were not ready. The gardens is full of mismatched plastic furniture with dirty cushion. the place looked so dirty, we... More

My husband and myself chose this B+B based on their website look and detail. We cut our three night stay to one and moved around the corner to Connies Guest House at the same price and triple the value. If you are a backpacker and enjoy Bohemian (read scruffy and disorganised) then this may be the place for you. My... More

My partner and I stayed at The Olive House from 29 Dec 2012 to 2 January 2013. Kati and George are the most charming and attentive hosts, and their spirit of friendliness pervades the whole place. Whether one prefers to be on one's own or to meet interesting people (the Olive House seems to draw tourists from many corners of... More

We spent the weekend 25th of August at The Olive House and it was fantastic. Kati's charm and George's cooking was amazing. Perfectly situated in town, close to all activities. Rooms were neat and clean and place was family friendly. From the Hersch family a BIG Thanks!!

We have just returned from spending the weekend of 3 - 6 August 2012 at the Olive House in Montagu. Our family is spread out over the Western Cape and Montagu made a good central point for celebrating my Dad's 79th birthday. Elderly patents, middle aged kids, 2 little girls and 2 Jack Russels - not exactly your dream booking!George... More

Over the weekend of the 8th June 2012 myself and my family stayed at The Olive House (20 Bath Street, Montagu). Within hours of arriving at The Olive House the owners Kati and George moved us from inside of the main house into a room which was subsequently burgled. Our camera, GPS and cellphone was stolen. We reported the case... More

Go through the old Dutch Colonial building which fronts on to the road and you will find the hidden gem which is the garden and the lovely rooms which surround it. It was recommended to me by Montagu tourist information (a truly helpful bunch of people) and after a long day’s drive the fact it was close was good enough,... More

We stayed at the Olive House in November 2011, it was amazing. Kati and George were simply the friendliest, most interesting and most welcoming B&B owners we have ever come across. We stayed in one of the little rooms in the garden, just so comfortable. One can see that the rooms have been built with love, they are very very... More

Pretty little b&b that offers a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. The rooms are all beautifully and uniquely decorated, but not so that you feel uncomfortable to make it feel like home. The central garden is probably the hilight with it's pretty bunting, fairy lights, swimming pool and hammock. The restaurant offers Crotian food that I highly reccomend as you are... More
