“Great new location, very friendly hosts, excellent breakfast”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

The rooms in the new building are grandiose and very spacious with a beautiful view to the olive tree garden. Campell and Ursula are very nice hosts and are very interested that the guests are feeling well. The Breakfast was great und various.

As with many other reviewers, we only stayed at Montagu Vines for one night and what a fantastic surprise it proved to be. The setting couldn't be better, surrounded by mountains, overlooking an olive groove and yet only 5 minutes walk into the centre of Montagu. The finish in our room was impeccable and certainly to a 5* standard. Despite Campbell and Ursula being busy building a pond - which will be delightful once finished - they still found time to welcome us and provide us with our complimentary carafe of wine which was a lovely touch. The service and choice at breakfast was also 5* - I can certainly recommend the French toast! Montagu Vines is an absolute gem and we would have no hesitation in staying with Ursula and Campbell again.

Room Tip: I suspect all are fantastic.

Thank-you Ursula!
Fantastic room, lovely view over the Olive trees, beautiful bathroom. Slight problem with the aircon not working properly (could happen anywhere) and the wi-fi connection is not too good as I think it's too far away from the rooms.
Apart from that, very high spec rooms, lovely bed. Will definitely stay again.

Stayed there for only one night but I would have more. Idyllic position in front of a young olive groove that reminded me of my homeland Tuscany. Ursula is a very attentive and gentle host.
Everything was special, the weather, the mountains, the crystal air. I really loved it.
Very good breakfast in an airy room.
And in the morning I even got my car washed up. What else you may desire at this affordable price? Highly recommended.

We spent one night here on a touring holiday and immediately felt very welcome.After check in a carafe of wine arrived for us to drink on our own terrace. The Guest House is beautifully decorated to a very high standard, with much attention to detail and is immaculate. We were sorry that we were not staying longer.

The rooms here are fantastic. The level of finish is excellent and the bathroom especially was amazing. Each room has a beautiful view over the olive tree plantation with the backdrop of the mountains behind.
Ursula and Campbell are great hosts providing all the information you could possibly need for a good stay in Montagu and Campbell provides very useful tips for onwards journeys.
We were welcomed with a lovely glass of wine and some restaurant advice which was very useful. It is only a 5-10 minute walk to the town and restaurants so location is great too.
The staff were also great, we even found that our car had been washed when we left the following morning!
Overall this is an exceptionally good guesthouse and we would highly recommend it.

I recently completed my third stay at Montagu Vines. I would not have stayed a third time had I not been impressed by the previous two stays. I was pleasantly surprised to find that things at Montagu had improved even further over the past year under its new owners. A wonderful new wing has been added with a dining room overlooking the river valley and some very nice rooms. The older rooms have been updated with satellite HDTV. Yet the cozy atmosphere remains, with a carafe of wine presented upon arrival (a testament to the vineyard just below the hotel which, unfortunately, was destroyed by a flood several years ago and was replaced largely by olive trees). You will find your car freshly washed the next morning, courtesy of Montagu's great staff. A new pedestrian bridge makes the short walk into town even safer than it was before. Several great restaurants are located within 10-15 minutes by foot. I plan to return on my next trip to South Africa.

Montagu Vines is situated in the historic conservation area of Montagu. The main farmhouse was built between 1900 and 1910 and reflects the early Victorian influenced Karoo style farmhouse of that period. The 6 Garden rooms and 2 courtyard rooms overlook the newly planted Olive Grove and compliment the stately main house. Following the damage to the vines from the floods of November 2008 the vineyard was removed in 2010 and replanted with an olive grove.We offer our guests a taste of old- fashioned comfort and luxury in the town of Montagu on the world famous "Route 62". You can relax in the splash pool set in the tranquil gardens with magnificent old oak and milkwood trees. Alternatively, you could lounge on the lawns enjoying the glorious views of the surrounding mountains whilst sipping a glass of local wine. Montagu Vines Guesthouse is just a stroll away from the centre of Montagu with its amenities that cater for all tastes and interests. There are restaurants, bistros, historic churches and tranquil gardens for the visitor to enjoy. Montagu Vines guesthouse is the perfect place for those intimate weekends, birthdays, and anniversaries or as a stopover whilst discovering "Route 62" and all it has to offer. You may be lucky and see the "resident" owls perched in the old oak tree or meet one of the big tortoises in the olive grove or surrounding areas that visit from the adjacent nature reserve. ... more   less
