“A B&B we found hard to better!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2010

We were 4 adults and travelled a total of 5,500 Kms on this holiday along the Garden Route. Time away was 2 weeks and as you will imagine we experienced many B&B establishments en route. Koo Karoo clearly outstripped every other one that we patronised. Shirley and Paul were the most delightful hosts and very obliging. They certainly went the extra 5 miles to ensure our comfort! We will definitely use them again.

I stayed at Koo Karoo for one night and that was far too short! Paul and Shirley are such friendly people who gave us fantastic local tips for Montagu. They went above and beyond my expectations, even providing us extra towels to take to the hot springs that are nearby. Our room was spacious, comfortable and extremely clean; Koo Karoo is obviously very well maintained. The decor was fresh and the whole guesthouse looks "as new." The breakfast we received was amazing! Fresh cereals, juice, yoghurt, coffee, tea, eggs, bacon and more! We had a wonderful stay and would recommend Koo Karoo to anyone! You will definitely enjoy it.

GREAT breakfast, warm hospitality that makes one feel at home and a perfect location in Montagu to visit the attractions. Unfortunately the choice of restuarants in Montagu is limited but the one that we chose was perfect and a short walk away (so one can drink as much wine as one likes!). I will certainly visit Koo Karoo again in the near future.

We couldn't ask for a more peqceful holiday away from the hustle and bustle, and Koo Karoo was the perfect "sleeping place" for us. The rooms were great, the breakfast was very nice, and the setting is very relaxing. I would definately recommend a stay here.... very good value for money.

The Koo Karoo Guest Lodge by far exceeded our expectations!

Friendly owners, fantastic food and perfect privacy is all we could ask for.

Location of guest house is in a well situated area of Montagu with safe off street parking made our stay even better.

I will defiantly stay at the koo karoo again!

Big thanks to Paul & Shirley for a wonderful overnight stay. The cottage is well equipped, comfortable, spotless and excellent value for money.

We needed self catering accommodation for one night in Montagu and found Koo Karoo Guesthouse very much to our liking. It was central, very spacious, clean and they even made a plan for our third child by bringing in an additional mattress. We only stayed for 1 night but should we have the need to stay in Montagu again - we will definitely be back. Thank you!
