This was a return visit so I was aware of what to expect. I was happy with most of the offerings as well as the accommodation. I was previously in the Mountain Chalets and being in the hotel this time felt a bit like a downgrade although it had its own special characteristics and feel. Disappointments were bathroom space and... More

We booked a mountain chalet which is part of the Avalon springs hotel and we were pleasantly surprised. It is air conditioned and equipped with all you can possibly need. The most comfortable beds, hairdryers, gowns and everything else. There is a nice built in braai on the stoep with a very nice view over the mountains. Their breakfasts are... More

First off all the approach of the reception was poor and cold. Had to wear neon pink wrist bands to show you paid for your accommodation which was ok at first untill the staff price tagged you on the band. Felt like a animal in the zoo. The first night came and I discovered @ 22h00 that there wasn't one... More

We always opt for the mid week special. Affordable rates and far less crowded than over the weekend. Very clean and comfortable. Fairly good menu . This time we had a noisy bed and it was rather dark in the room. Front facing room we had the time before iwas way better.Still it was a lovely time spent away from... More

We have just returned from a few days at the Avalon Springs hotel in Montagu, and still think this is one of the nicest most relaxed places I have ever visited. The rooms vary in size and are very clean and compact, having everything one needs. The staff are so friendly and really amazing in the way they go about... More

Extremely friendly, helpful staff ensured a pleasant stay! Hotel's interior is very dated BUT very neat and clean. They were busy doing maintenance at the reception area so first impressions was not very good. However, we were informed before booking that scheduled maintenence is taking place. This did not affect our stay or the rest of your time spend there.... More

Well we came to Montagu about 5 years ago and decided that we want to go and see Avalon Springs, every thing looked so nice... Every year we go to Coral Tree Cottages near Plettenbergbay, which I will give 10 stars if I could... But because of distance from where we live we decided 6 to 7 months in advance... More

A wonderful 2 night stay at Avalon Springs. The chalets, on a steep mountainside, are beautiful and immaculately kept, with a fantastic view. The kitchen was equipped with all kinds of shiny, state of the art cooking aids and utensils. HOWEVER, there were four of us, all strangers, and only one key! I do not know how this is supposed...

We recently spent 4 nights at this hotel in Montagu. The accommodation was very clean and the food was very good except the breakfasts could use a little variety. After 4 days of the same food gets very boring.. Unfortunately this grand old lady is looking a trifle tired. The hotel could do with a face lift. We found the... More
