This place is not ideal for families, their activities are structured to suit their operational needs and not a recreation schedule. The bike rental closes at 12 on a Sunday, they share a tennis court, security and other amenities with the Avalon Springs but you should never pay for anything at Montagu Springs. The manager is rude, obnoxious and extremely... More

This was our first and last visit to Montagu Springs. On booking we were told there is a games room for the children, the Large Plettenbergs where refurbished and there was a mineral pool at the hotel. The games room is no longer, the accomodation was not refurbished, floors filthy and the pool has normal chlorine water... The neighbours where... More

This was our second visit to this resort. We stayed in one of the large plettenbergers. On our previous visit we also disappointed in the accommodation. It was only as a result that we required a last minute booking that we considered this. Although nothing specific is wrong with the venue itself, The accommodation has an overwhelming feeling of smallness... More

We aim to maintain a high level of service and standards for all our customers - the fact that dirt and leaves were left unattended will be brought up with the ground staff. That being said, we...

I'm an easy traveler, but if a place makes a disappointing impression on me, I feel so cheated! We stayed as a family for 2 nights in the Plettenberg cottages. Although these cottages are relatively spacious, it provides a typical caravan set-up at a cost of R1035/night. The unit has all the catering equipment for 6 people and has a... More

If I'm not mistaken this is my 3rd Montagu Springs review, although I have visited many more times. What makes our last visit different is that this time we chose to stay in the Josmont Heights. My thoughts on Montagu Springs remains the same....great pools, lovely resort, playground, scenery etc and the prices are good. So I'll review Josmont Heights... More

Thank you so much for the positive reviews. Our guests are our number one priority and we take all feedback into account to try better our guests experience. Josmond Heights does take you out of the action a bit, but allows for more relaxation - we agree that the views and chalets are great. May I suggest that you try... More

We recently spent 2 nights in a mountain chalet with a "to die for" view of the mountain from our large, superbly equipped & designed balcony. The chalet is FULLY self-contained with everything you could possibly imagine ever needing! And everything was new and sparkling clean. What a terrific place! We were totally enthralled with the chalet and it's own... More

We only spent one night in our unit unfortunately, but would have loved to have spent longer. The unit we were in was spotlessly clean, well appointed, with sweeping views across the vineyards. The walks around the resort were lovely, with teeming wildlife, such as water fowl in and near the river, dassies scurrying around, residents cats and many varieties... More

This resort in Montagu (about 2 hours out of Cape Town) boasts the most beautiful mountain views and is situated within walking distance from the famous Avelon Hot Springs.
