“Beautiful place for our overnight stop”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 19, 2012

During a trip along the Garden Route of eight persons of family and friends we stayed for one night at Airlies B&B. We were very pleased by that beautiful place and its friendly and nice owners. We came from Germany and would like to come back whenever this were possible.

We stayed here for the last night of our trip to South Africa and found it a very charming, restful place. When booking the trip, we were a bit apprehensive about B&B's. I was relieved to find a comfortable (huge) room with lovely views of the mountains and a historic church... and a seriously gigantic bathroom. The decor is Victorian (in our room at least) with incredible attention to detail...maybe not everyone's taste for their own home, but sort of a time capsule and a fun experience. Tielman made a great breakfast and we enjoyed meeting the dogs and parrot. They also have a beautiful garden. The hosts were friendly and helpful but not overbearing (this was a B&B associated fear!). All in all, a very pleasant stay that helped to make our day in Montagu more than just a quick travel stopover on the way back to Cape Town.

We stayed in Montagu for one night as we were touring around the wine land.
This B&B is in the centre of Montagu. We were in a room in a cottage in the fabulous garden.
The room was elegant and very peaceful. Amazingly large bathroom, comfortable bed. Breakfast in the morning was good and I can only recommend this very nice B&B.

We prolonged to 3 nights as we felt so comfortable in one of the garden cottages. The rooms in the guesthouse are spacious and have all comfort you wish. Even a small caraffe of Muskateller wine (a speciality in this area) was in our room. Corrie and Thielman are wonderful landlords and their breakfast is first class (home baked bread !). If we come to Montague again - we will go to Airlies.

Room Tip: We preferred the garden cottages with a smal terrace in front of the cottage.

Stayed three nights in Airlies and would thouroughly recommend. The owners were very welcoming and helpful and their guest house is great - lots of old world charm and beautifully presented. There's also a nice garden and pool and some rooms have terraces too. Also very centrally located in the midst of Montagu's great restaurants. While it didn't bother me, some might be a little surprised to find that - at least in the room we had - the bathroom was separated from the bedroom by just a half door and a curtain!

After a few days of travel through the Southern Cape, decided to sleep over in the beautiful town of Montagu. The exterior of the old house is close to breath taking, and the feel of the reception very warming. The room was up along a very time specific stairs. The room greeted us with lovely view of the old church and surrounding old houses.
Although in the main road, it was quite the experience to be walking distance from local pub and restaurants. The complementary port with two dessert glasses was a fine touch to finish off the room.
The personal touch around morning breakfast was very homey and the interaction of our hosts speak of a couple that loves their house and surroundings.

Room Tip: Remember, the house is across the church, with bright shining streetlight, close the curtain and dra...

We stayed at Airlie for the second time last week. The service and comfort levels were top class . We stayed in the rear cottage where we had both apartments. You cannot fault Airlie and even the grey parrot welcomed us again. Both Tielman and Connie welcomed us and made us feel at home. we would definitely stay again.
