Making guests comfortable has been so well thought through at Montusi. The magnificent scenery provides a stunning back drop for this professionally run family enterprise. Our family of 4 stayed for 3 nights and experienced the guided walks (with welcome tea and biscuit break), horse-riding and activity centre - which were all very well organised, sympathetic to the environment and enjoyable.
Each afternoon tea and delicious cakes were served in the lounge.
The site (both the grounds and the accommodation) is very efficiently maintained by the resident staff.
The ethos of Montusi is for those seeking a peaceful and quiet environment - and thus not necessarily a destination for families and children.
With this understanding and our own objective of seeking the same concept - we were more than happy to blend into the essence of Montusi.
Even with a fussy 11 year old daughter and a Chicketarian son, Montusi's dining room provided us with excellent breakfasts, lunches and dinners.
The service provided by the owners and their daughters was always with a smile and with genuine concern that guests had a positive experience at Montusi. It was a memorable stay for all of our family.
