“A fun stay - warmly recommended”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

The Vineyard Country House is full of charm and very well run by two women who go out of their way to make their guests feel comfortable. Each room is slightly different but all are very nicely decorated – full of character!

The house is situated on quite a busy main through road, yet once you are on the property surrounded by extensive vineyards, fruit orchards and distant mountains you feel like you are in the countryside. It’s very relaxing and pretty with outdoor showers, beds and a swimming pool set in amongst the vines.

We only had one complaint and that is that the pillows on the beds were uncomfortable. We would have preferred softer (feather) pillows rather than the bulky ones supplied - not a problem that can’t be overcome.

Breakfasts are served on the verandah (stoep) of the character-filled, beautiful main house by the hosts, Louise and Lauren, both accomplished cooks. There is always something home-made and out of the ordinary – you can tell they’re passionate about food!

It was a fun stay. We warmly recommend The Vineyard.

We also enjoyed a very nice meal at Jessica’s Restaurant, which was recommended to us. The gardens at Van Loveren Winery are well worth a visit.

Thank you so much for your feedback, we have bought down and feather pillows for all the rooms as an alternative to the existing pillows and have already had a few guests thank us for them.
We appreciate all suggestions to improve the quality of our home and value your feedback.
Kind regards Louise and Lauren

We should have stayed longer but had pre-planned out itinery in the uk and had only allowed a one night stay in Montagu. However, the town was better than expected whilst the Vinyard Country House exceeded all expectations. Our room had a view of the vinyard. It was a nice blend of traditional "collonial" but with a chiq bijou twist - very comfortable. Louise was keen to demonstrate the outside shower "for the men" - which I was a bit unsure about at first, but can highly recommend it from now on. All very friendly and spotless. The only problem was that we should have stayed longer - we will return.

Hi - thanks so much for your lovely review of The Vineyard Country House, you will be pleased to know that the outdoor showers have proved to be a huge hit with our guests- (even a few of the ladies are trying them!)
Now that its winter we have seen the steam rising up out of the outdoor shower areas early in the morning as a few of our more daring guests take a chilly out door 'alfresco' shower.
We hope you are well and look forward to seeing you again in eh not to distant future kind regards Louise and Lauren

My husband and I had the privilege of staying at the Vineyard Country House this past Easter Weekend and what a treat it was!

The guesthouse is beautifully decorated with breathtaking views and scenery. It is centrally located and within walking distance of restaurants, markets and shops. Our hosts, Lauren & Louise, are amazing! They treat you like family from the moment you arrive and cater for your every whim. Forget about any sort of dieting while you're there though as their culinary expertise will have you begging for second and third helpings!

It's not often that you feel comfortable enough in a guesthouse to make friends with other guests and have drinks in the lounge till the early hours of the morning. We honestly felt like we were in our own home!

Thank you ladies for making our much needed weekend away truly magical, you did a superb job of looking after and spoiling us.

We'll see you soon x

We stayed at the Vineyard Country House for a night over the Easter weekend. Such a lovely, tranquil B&B nestled between the Montagu hills and private vineyards, staying there feels like you've come across a secret hide out.
The host Laura and Lauren are divine as well as their 2 pugs - Basil & Bella, adorable!
The rooms are tastefully decorated, and the first thing we noticed when walking in was the lovely smell of fresh linen. The free standing bath and outdoor shower overlooking the vineyard were an absolute treat and the food delish!
My fiance and I felt well rested and relaxed, we'll definitely be back!
Thanks so much :)

We had a great time at the Vineyard Country House. We stayed for one night, and we wish we could have stayed there for one month.

The house and room are both beautiful, with attention given to every detail. The mountain view is just amazing, especially when sitting in the lounge area by the pool. Breakfast was superb, with freshly baked bread and muffins.

This is an amazing place, hope we will have the opportunity to visit again.

Montagu is a small and relaxed town, with great atmosphere. It is a short drive to the many vineyards around the neighboring Robertson.

We stayed at The Vineyard Country house for three nights.Our hosts,Louise and Lauren were charming,helpful and fabulous cooks. Our breakfasts and delicious homemade bread each morning was just fabulous.We fell in love with Basil and Bella. The beautiful surrounding mountains make for such a peaceful setting and each room has its own charm.Their suggestions for restuarants in the area were also great. We will definately be back to enjoy more of this special place.
