The sense of nostalgia in this original Art-Deco hotel brings back all the cosy, safe emotions of being with loving grandparents. The care and service ethics are commendable and make you feel like you have been invited to the grand house in a small country town of a near relative. If you see a tall, attractive gent strolling around as... More

Dear pv868 Thank you for the great review! I fully agree that Route 62 is an absolute must when exploring South Africa.

Highly recommend taking this route if you are returning to Cape Town from Plett, Mossel Bay or Georgetown. Montague is a small pictuesque town with lots of excellent accommodation. Restaurants also plentiful.

Dear penny v Thank you for the review. Art Deco is our main theme, but we also have 2 Victorian buildings in our garden, and a Rondawel, decorated in African Style. We have a lot of fun decorating the whole hotel, you would see guests comment on this often. Montagu is the perfect stop when travelling from Cape Town on... More

We always enjoy a visit at the Montagu Country Hotel. A few times just for coffee or tea; a few times for breakfast or dinner and four times for a treat at the Spa. Service is always friendly, thorough and if everyone remembers you from the previous visit or if your finally "home" again!

Overall we were very satisfied with the overall service and atmosphere of the hotel. We were from the youngest around and looking at the elderly people there, it gave me hope that one day when I'm old I will continue coming to the Hotel. The best we've had in 14 years of coming every year to Montague at different venues.... More

Montagu Country Hotel is a must-stay hotel on Route 62 for its unique art-deco look and modern comforts. Staff do their best to ensure your comfort and needs are met. The location in the middle of town is a plus.

It has an old school charm to it. Phenomenal dining experience with that personal touch and elegant mood set by the piano playing in the background. Excellent food and service! I would highly recommend it for anyone traveling in the area.

This is a gracious Art Deco hotel set in the small town of Montagu. Our room was well equipped, but I did find the bad a little hard. There is also a spa at the hotel which uses the thermal waters of the area. There are comfortable lounges and outside patios and a restaurant serving great food at reasonable prices

Dear kathywivel Thank you for the review. Montagu is well situated at the start of Klein Karoo, on the historical Route 62. Our Art Deco theme is very unique, and we enjoy the challenge of decorating in this style.
