Montpelier is a Cape Dutch Architectural gem, set in dreamland vineyard surroundings with the Winterhoek mountains as a spectacular backdrop. Furnishings are comfortable and authentic. The garden is full of hidden places to eat, drink and be merry, and the estate produces its own excellent wines, red white and sparkling. We took over the main house for a family holiday,... More

We are an English family who have been to many guesthouses in the Western Cape, but none of them have impressed us as much as Montpellier de Tulbagh. We range from 6 months old to 65 years old. We love going there so much that, in January, we decided to get married at Montpellier. We had 26 people and 9... More

The property is simply stunning. You will never want to leave. The service is impeccable, and the wine is fantastic. It is an absolute must if you plan to visit the area. And if you don't plan to visit the area, well, make a plan. If you need a place to host an event, wedding, whatever, this is it. Totally... More

My husband and I were in Tulbagh last weekend, and stopped for wine tasting at Montpellier. What a hidden gem! The manor house and grounds are stunning, and the staff were all so friendly and nice. We sat by the pool and had an extensive wine tasting session led by the sweet Emmanuel, who did a great job. Their wines... More

My wife and I stayed at Montpellier in one of the self catering units. We loved our entire experience at this scenic wine farm and wedding venue. The self catering units are spacious, clean and very comfortable to just relax in. The staff are very kind and helpful. We enjoyed a wine tasting and wood fired pizzas. Such a tranquil... More

Breakfast? Great! Accommodation? So what if we had a creaky bed! No receptionist to receive us? Dont care! We were made to feel so welcome, we had smiles and good service all around. We stayed in the main guesthouse.The staff were flexible and ready to serve us at any of the many communal entertainment areas, which includes the 2 lounges... More

One of my favourite corners of South Africa. It's less a guest house and more of a wine farm. We stayed in the main farmhouse building which is wonderfully atmospheric, so cant comment on the other cottages that people have stayed in. What we loved was it's casual and informal beauty. The building is tastefully decorated with antique furniture and... More

I so much agree with Adel L & Bullc9 - Beautiful Venue but what a dump. Please if any overseas people are thinking of doing a self catering week-end this is not the place to hire. Wrote a letter to the agent which I believe they have not seen the place them selves. Part of my the letter ........... On... More

Beautiful venue. Bad bad bad experience and poor mangement. I am as sick as a dog after staying 2 nights in a wet and drafty selfcatering "cottage". It was offered as luxury accomodation sleeping 4 adults. Embarassing to have invited friends for a weekend away on my husband's birthday. Double bookings for the horse rides.
