“Excellent rooms, friendly people, excellent breakfast”
Reviewed December 8, 2009

When we arrived we have received a warm welcome which gives you immediately a home-away-from-home feeling. Both Tielman and Corrie were excellent hosts. We consider them as the nicest and friendliest place we have been staying during our 4 week trip across southern South Africa.
I recommend this Airlies to anyone who wants to stay in the area.

We loved this place, the gentle and warm welcome of its hosts and the dangerously delicious breakfasts. A must when you stay in beautiful Montague! Oscar and Mara

Airlies, situated in the picturesque town, Montagu, is an exceptional convergence of tranquil accommodation, good food and hospitality. Tielman and Corrie, the friendly host and hostess, went to great lengths to make our stay enjoyable. The beautiful surroundings, well-kept lawns, gardens, decor and atmosphere added to the pleasant experience. Rooms and bathrooms are spacious and clean and the availability of internet is a welcome bonus. I can recommend this fine accommodation and will most certainly return on my next visit to this region.

We stayed at Airlies en-route back to Cape Town after our Garden Route Tour. The drive to Montague fron Oudtshoorn was wonderful. We arrived a little early for check in but it wasn`t a problem. Our room was one of the garden rooms and was lovely. It was bight and spacious with a lovely bathroom with twin basins and a brilliant shower. We spent the afternoon by the pool ( and in it), it was quiet with lovely views of the mountains. After our drive it was wonderful to relax in such pleasant surroundings.

Tielman had booked us a table at "Jessica`s" for our evening meal. This was a safe easy walk along the main street. We ate in the garden at the back of the restaurant - excellent food and good hospitality.

When we returned to Airlies, the room and verandah lights had been switched on and they had set the fan running to cool the room. The breakfast the next morning was nicely presented and plenty to eat. It would have been nice to spend at least another night as it felt so comfortable. A great stopping place on Route 62.

The Airlies B&B in Montagu is a place we strongly can recommended everyone who is searching and looking for a genuin and memorable staying in the Western Cape. The room where large and included a bathroom big enough for persons, the indoors area where nice and clean, thee and coffe tray with cakes and a vase with fresh flowers everyday. The outdoor where equipped with relaxing chairs and table close to the lovely garden.
The pool area where clean with sun beds, towels for guests.
The morning breakfast where extra ordinary with decorated table with flowers and a big attention from the hosts. Our car where on a parking bay close to the entrance of the B&B. The Airlies B&B is central located in Montagu, a small and tranqil village between the mountains, we had a safe feeling when walk-about outside the Airlies. There are a post-office across the road, a lot of restaurants, small shops, very interesting buildings from the past within walking distance from the Airlies. At the end of the same street, there where a bird sanctuary with especially Ibis within watching distance.
Finally, this is a place to return to. Our 3 -days is unforgetable, very much effected of the hosts kindly hospitality.

Airlie's guesthouse is a wonderful place to stay in Montagu. Myself and 7 friends were on vacation riding our Harley's along Route 62 and all over South Africa. We spent the night on Valentine's Day 2008 at Airlie's. The rooms are all beautiful - it's an old home, built in 1912 I believe but it is in impeccable shape. Beautiful furnishings and antiques, The owners are very warm and full of South African hospitality. Corrie had even gone the extra mile and booked us dinner reservations in advance of our arrival. The breakfast was delicious, consisting of everything you'd expect from a South African Breakfast. The location is great and they are very willing to help you with routes or places of interest. I would stay here again and again. Top notch. A+
