“Beautiful Guest House”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2010

When we arrived we were taken to our accommodation and was surprised how beautiful it was inside as well as outside. Had a outside shower which was surprisingly lovely when taken. Had everything in the room with a log fire which was welcoming as the evening were cool. Definitely will stay here again and the rates were good I thought. Breakfast was extensive and cooked deliciously. We stayed there one night and are glad we did. Views from rooms were panoramic. It was clean and luxurious, definitely more than a 4 four star!

We also stayed one night in Montagu while driving along the Garden Route. Les Hauts de Montagu was a very nice place that we enjoyed. We arrived a bit late and Miriam was nice enough to recommend a place for dinner (Jessica's in town) since they do not serve dinner there on Mondays. We made use of our fireplace in our room to keep it nice and toasty with some wine...the perfect way to end the evening. Even though it was a bit chilly, we did make use of the outdoor shower, which had a beautiful view. My only complaint is that the towels were a little hard...for such a nice place, I would have expected them to be a little softer and fluffier. Breakfast was tasty and we also hiked around some of the trails on the property. Would definitely recommend Les Hauts de Montagu!

My husband and I stayed at Les Hauts de Montagu for one night as we were driving along the Garden Route and I can safely say it was our favorite place to stay on our entire trip to South Africa. It is right outside of the town of Montagu, set far back from the main road right at the foot of mountains. The property is absolutely beautiful - each cottage looks over rows and rows of olive trees (and the occasional wild ostrich). We stayed in the Lavender Suite, which was at the end of the row of cottages. The room was immaculately clean, decorated in a lovely French rustic style with a canopy queen sized bed and a fireplace. The bathroom was very spacious, with a tub, an outdoor shower (very nice on a warm day) and heated floors. Very luxurious accommodations. Breakfast was fantastic. We started off with some homemade muesli, followed by a beautiful fruit plate, then a hot breakfast of eggs/bacon/sausage/etc. YUM - this was definitely one of the better breakfasts we had on our trip. We were sad that we only stayed for one night - but there is really not much to see in the town of Montagu. One day/night is really all you need.

We truly enjoyed our stay here and would highly recommend it!

The location of this hotel is amazing - the view is spectacular, and it is a place to come for relaxation, good food and quiet. The rooms are spacious and comfortable and well appointed. Each has a terrace with a magnificent view, and an outdoor (private) shower leading off the bathroom. The chef in the restaurant is French and produces excellent meals - the lamb dish I had was probably some of the best lamb I have had anywhere. The breakfasts are served on a terrace with a view of the rolling countryside, and there is a calm pool, again with its own lovely view.

Stayed for one night in Les Hauts de Montagu on our R62 roadtrip. What a find. Les Hauts is set in absolutely stunning grounds. Our suite was lovely - with a verandah overlooking lavender and olive groves and their 3 ostriches! The feel is definitely rustic but we loved it - four poster bed, heated tiled floor, outdoor shower, fire for the cool evenings - heaven. We arranged to have dinner the evening we arrived - the meal was fantastic and is a must if you're staying. Overall if planning a trip along the 62 and passing through Montagu I would highly recommend staying - we completely felt like we were getting away from it all in the most beautiful and tranquil of settings.

I have travelled extensively and this has to be one of the top places I have ever been to.
Even though we were unable to eat there as the kitchen was closed the night we stayed (I understand the food is amazing) the place itself was incredible. Our room was wonderful - a part of a cottage overlooking the fields of olive trees and the scenery was one of the most beautiful we saw in all SA with plenty of local flora and fauna roaming the grounds.
The owners are very friendly and there is plenty of walking and relaxing to do whilst there.

Fabulous

We spent the first night of our trip from Cape Town to Addo at Les Hauts de Montagu and liked it so much we decided to spend our last night on the return trip there as well. Words cannot really describe the peaceful setting, nor the exceptional cuisine.... you just have to go there and find that out for yourself.
