“Haven in the vines”
Reviewed May 18, 2013

After a last minute change of plans we arrived in Motagu looking for a place to stay. We were made so welcome and our every need was immediately seen to. Our spacious room with modern bathroom was immaculate and stylishly furnished with lovely views over the large gardens and vines. The best part was the breakfast the next morning in a sunny room, again with lovely views. Our hosts were charming and helpful and we would, without hesitation, stay here next time we are in Montagu. There is ample, safe free parking.

Room Tip: We paid a reasonable amount for a larger room. It looks like all of the rooms offer stunning views o...

We found this place using trip advisor. The setting was spectacular and the breakfast in the morning was fantastic. The room was cozy and had a comforter to keep me warm at night. No fire till June though. I was a bit disappointed in that. They had wifi but it was pretty crappy. I could not do much of anything with my I pad. I would have loved to have shown my friends my pictures of this place.

Room Tip: Ask about wifi as that might be an issue if you have to work. You can pretty much only use email.

This is a truly a top of the range place. We stayed in Room 7 and it was better than some 5 star hotels I've stayed in.
Modern, well designed, air con, full DSTV, excellent bed and bathroom and first class breakfast. The room has a very nice stoep overlooking the olive trees.
They clean your car as a matter of course.
Ursula and Campbell are super friendly and made the stay memorable.
I would doubt that there are many better B&Bs anywhere in South Africa...and I've stayed in quite a few. They've invested wisely in the property and it shows.
It should win prizes...I certainly hope it does.

Room Tip: Pay extra for one of the more modern luxury rooms.

We stayed in Montagu vines for a family wedding two weeks ago. What a find! It is an oasis of calm, with the most beautiful scenery. Nestled in behind mountains, and with an olive grove, ornate plunge pool and exquisitely manicured gardens outside our bedroom window, we were reluctant to go too far during the day! Ursula and Campbell were such kind hosts and they went out of their way to make our stay very comfortable. It was a lovely touch to be welcomed with a glass of the local vino on arrival. Breakfast was fantastic and gracefully served by Frances. We would love to come back. Montagu town is so quaint and a perfect base from which to explore the Stellenbosch area.

What a brilliant job the owners Ursula and Campbell have done here. We stayed in one of the rooms in the annexe built just a year or so ago, and the room would be hard to beat anywhere for comfort, style and amenities. What's more the room opens onto a private veranda with lovely views over a plantation of olive trees to the mountains beyond - ideal for enjoying the complimentary glass of wine we were offered soon after arrival. The breakfast, served in a pleasant and airy dining room with the same lovely views, was varied and plentiful with a good selection of hot dishes cooked to order.

We had just a one-night stopover, but Montagu Vines would have been wonderful for a much longer stay.

Montagu Vines was the first stop on our 5 weeks trip to the Garden Route. What a wonderful first impression of South Africa. We stayed for 2 nights in one of the new rooms and it was spectacular. The shower alone was almost as big as my whole bathroom!! Ursula and Campbell are so friendly and caring. We had an amazing trip and stayed in many great B&B's, however Montagu Vines really has to be the most memorable.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
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
