“Enjoyed our Stay”
Reviewed June 7, 2012

We had stayed at Montagu Vines on our 2 previous stays in Montagu and had booked Montagu Vines again. However the new owners of Montagu Vines reneged on our room reservation made a year earlier so we looked for alternative accommodation at the last minute. We were very fortunate to find Seven Church Street and had a very enjoyable 3 day stay there.

May and Mike are wonderful hosts who are friendly and helpful, arranging restaurants making other bookings and giving good recommendations on what to do. We particularly enjoyed the Viljoensdrift picnic and Breede River trip they arranged for us. Our accommodation in the Garden Room was spacious, clean and well equipped with large comfortable beds, fridge with welcome bottle of wine, safe, very plush bathroom and both a veranda and sundeck with nice views towards the mountains. From what we could see all rooms looked attractive and well equipped.

The property is large, very secure with electronic controlled gates and close to the centre of the town. The garden is large and beautifully laid out, having a nice and decently sized swimming pool. Despite the rooms being spread out over such a large site the WiFi reception was the best we encountered in South Africa.

Breakfasts around the large table were wholesome and of excellent quality and sufficiency, setting us up for each day. We would not hesitate to make Seven Church Street our first and best choice when we next return to Montagu.

Upgraded to a very large family suite so can't complain! Well furnished room, obviously with a lot of thought put in to make it unique, landscaped grounds, good breakfast, and very warm welcome from the hosts.

Lots of information provided about the town and the area to help make for a fruitful visit.

We loved staying. May and Mike are so hospitable, helpful and friendly. The gardens are beautiful and the accommodations were spacious and very comfortable. Montagu is a charming town. Just wish we'd had more time to spend there.

This was our third visit to 7 Church Street and, as always, we received a very warm welcome from May and Mike. We have seen the wonderful changes to their guest house over the last six years, with the addition of the garden rooms and the flourishing of the garden, with its lovely duck pond. As a previous guest has said, a true labour of love.

The guests share the breakfast table which at first can be a bit scary but quite quickly becomes another thoroughly enjoyable part of the stay, having the opportunity to meet lots of different people.

Montagu is such a picturesque small town, with beautiful mountain scenery and it is very easy to stroll around and relax there. It's a very easy drive to the Robertson wine valley from the town, 20-30 minutes, which is well-worth a trip. Ths time we took a boat trip up the Brede River from Viljoensdrift where you can have a picnic on the boat or by the river afterwards.

You do need to stay two nights at least, to appreciate this lovely guest house and surrounding area.

Room Tip: We have stayed in three different rooms, all beautifully appointed (with fantastic embroidered bed l...

Montagu yet another little town we enjoy visitng while in SOUTH AFRICA.( 8 th trip)
May and Mike our hosts at 7th church street make you feel at home and go out of
their way to make your stay as enjoyable as possible.
The day starts of with a traditionnal breakfast around une table d'hote. May the most
naturally in the world presents all her guests while she serves up the tea or coffe and takes the orders. She seems to have all the time in the world but with an uncanning efficiency low

Mike will be more than happy to help you plan your stay our give you advice concerning

We have tried 3 different rooms.The rooms in the main house have a old world charm
to them while the cottages in the garden our spacious. Next time around we will try yet another room.

We stayed for 1 night here on our way along Route 62. Had 1 of the Garden rooms - lovely! It was a shame we had only booked for 1 night Breakfast was very tasty and we enjoyed browsing all the art work on the Walls.
