Breakfast served at 8.30, we went without due to the fact that we were to early for breakfast, being 8.00, which hotel or BnB or Guesthouse does not serve breakfast before 8.30...its unbelievable....never in all my 50 years of traveling have I ever been told I can't get served breakfast before 8.30 on a Saturday morning NEVER.

Dear Bev and John,

Thank you for your review. I must however say that I am truly surprised and would like to respond, for the record.

You stayed with us for two nights. Upon registration at arrival, you chose the option to have breakfast at 09:00 the following morning. I do recall that you said that you might want to have breakfast a little earlier on the second morning. You however never discussed a specific time with us on the evening of your second night, which I think would have been courteous.

Bearing in mind your comment to have breakfast a little earlier, we prepared to have it ready by 08:30 instead of 09:00. When you came for breakfast BEFORE 08:00 we were not ready and you decided to leave without breakfast rather than wait for a few minutes. You seemed quite comfortable with this and we deducted the cost of breakfast from your account (you did not pay for the breakfast that you did not have).

We often do serve breakfast earlier than the normal times and have done so just a few days ago and will definitely do it again. (we have done it as early as 04:00 in the morning).

Kind regards.

Tielman

I stayed at Airlies B&B for two nights in June. What a pleasant and relaxing stay it was! The owners are so friendly and make you feel like you are at home, away from from. The town is peaceful and the perfect getaway from the hustle of city life. The rooms are very comfortable and warm, especially for winter time. The home cooked breakfast by the owner in the morning was a very nice surprise. Will definitely recommend to anyone who would like a peaceful weekend getaway and I will be back too! Great value for money

We enjoyed a lovely stay at Airlies B & B, in a softly furnished comfortable room surrounded by birdsong in the garden.

Our hosts were professional and friendly with a kind interest in their guests. I would gladly recommend Airlies B& B in Montangu.

A superb guesthouse in a superb location in one of my favourite small towns. Our friendly hosts offered advice on places to visit and eat and the morning breakfast was one of the best we have had. Well done Corrie and Tillman!

Great B&B located in pretty much the best spot to explore the finest food and wine this area has to offer. Having extremely friendly and helpful owners is also a massive bonus and the view from the back garden is amazing.

We checked on Tripadvisor to see where there was in Montagu and chose Airlies because of the reviews and location. We like to dine out in the evening and being in Bath Street it meant we could have a drink and walk. We chose a garden room which was really lovely as we wanted a shower not a bath. It was spacious and quiet and in the evening went to the restaurant right next door which was recommended by our host. The price included a lovely breakfast. We plan to travell through Montagu again next year and will book again at Airlies.
