We travelled from Ireland to get married here. We picked it as it seemed high quality without been frilly. It was an excellent choice as the 2 of us stood out on the green grass and under that amazing view on a beautifull sunny day in March got married. As strange as it may seem every other place seemed to be trying to be a high quality urban style hotel in the middle of nature, with all, without exception, failing. Montusi is quality top to bottom to the point I had to ask the Manager, why their website so underplays the place. Which as most of you know is pretty much the opposite of every other accommodation on the planet. I am not saying this as I got married there, as I am the most pedantic in the world when it comes to getting what I expect from Hotels et al.
This place is absolute paradise with plenty to do and great food. As for our wedding the team there could not do enough for us. We wanted a simple wedding with just 4 people under an amazing setting. They helped us in our organisation and in any way they could. This is the best Nature and luxury can bring together without the crazy rates we seen some places look for. Its a true family run diamond in the rough. We look forward to going back, maybe for an anniversary..
