Expensive for the average South African, especially for a family. The place was full due to the school holidays. Everything is extra, to use warm pools etc. place is neat etc. Day stop was good, but will recommend for childless couples to visit off peak times.

Unfortunately a bad experience from start to finish. We wanted to check in early (midday) as we have 2 little kids, we phoned well in advance to ask and were told straight off the bat that no check in before 3, they didn't even check to see if a unit was a available, which there was when we got there,...

High prices even during off-season are not justified by the limited included items and antiquated facilities. Rooms are possibly 2 star (in the case of the chalets, at least). Remember to bring your own towels and dish washing kit for self catering! The staff members were very helpful, though. Maybe try Avalon Springs instead...

Stayed for 4 nights with my family, website is deceiving. Over priced and under delivered. Stayed in Plettenberg chalets, no towels provided, no remote and when we arrived the room smelt like gas as the gas stove was left on. At reception we were informed,the heat pumps,were,not working therefore pools were free - I thought these pools were free anyway... More

The polls are really lovely and the setting is beautiful. My boys love the many wildfowl that hang around! The only drawback is the number of people (it's obviously very popular) and the noise they make.

I stayed in the Villa and was greeted by a mop lying in front of the pathway near the garden. Has a small, old TV, One has to pay to use the hot pool and it is limited to 10h30pm. Why can't it be the whole night? After all, apart from security, it's only residents on the premises surely and... More

Montagu Springs Resort is a good place to visit and relax. Great nature and hot mineral water springs. The problem I had is that there is no guide to explain what kind of facilities are available and how to be used. There are no signs to specify what is the mineral content of the water, what is the water temperature... More

Booked here for a nice relaxing couple of days after a week in Cape town. We were a party of four. The chalets were old and needed to be updated. We were not to worried as we were there for the springs. So we couldn't believe it when we were told we couldn't use them as they were filming in... More

We stayed from 27-29 March in a Villa which was very clean and well maintained , the view from the top was also awesome. It was very peaceful and an ideal weekend break from City life. Did the Tractor ride about 30km from the resort , had a lovely potjiekos lunch before heading up the mountain , a bit nerve... More

I could not believe that a well known resort such as this still had small old tv's. Having to pay for heated swimming pool that was far from the chalet where I stayed as well as the remote for DSTV was a shock. Perhaps I would have overlooked these 'minor' discomforts had the staff been more friendlier at reception. A... More
