“Lovely B&B”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

If you plan a stop in Montagu, go to 7 Church Street

I recommend the rooms behind the garden. They are very (very) spacious and quiet, with a private terrace. Perfect to taste the purchases you made on the Wine Route  while looking at the beautiful garden. Perfect to rest at sunset, if you do not prefer the (small) swimming pool.
The rooms are very clean and spotless. Huge bathroom. TV and WiFi available. Just perfect.

The hospitality of the owners is also a good reason to stop there. They prepare a delicious breakfast and are also very helpful to guide you for your journey. They booked the restaurant for us and gave us great advice for the next B&B.

When I go back to Montagu, I know where to stop by !

It must be good to return many times!! Well it's true we have stayed with May and Mike three times and their guest house is amazing as they are. Wonderful hosts, they make you feel so welcome and nothing is too much trouble. A must is the Wine tasting tour with Jaco, May arranged this for our last 2 visits, he is great fun and knowledge and very good value for money. This time we stayed in the middle room in the garden(4 adults-Family) and it was perfect for us. All the rooms are very spacious and decorated to a high standard, the bathrooms are amazing !! I can't praise this guest house enough. We hope to return again soon...

7 Church St is a beautiful guest house, in a charming village.
Mike & May are excellent hosts, who make you feel very welcome & will help with any bookings, tips, questions etc.
This was our 4th visit...so that speaks volumes!
All the rooms are clean, charming & most have superb views.
Free wi-fi & TV in all rooms now (Mike is constantly looking at ways to improve things...to stop himself getting bored!)
Plenty of good restaurants within walking distance.
Plenty of good vineyards nearby to stock up on wine!
Will definitely return.

Room Tip: Garden suite has the best views...but is up a flight of stairs.

Great guest house. We had the room above the garage which was fabulous for the three of us (2 adults and a toddler). We put the little one down to sleep in the bedroom then moved her into the open plan living area bed when we were going to bed. Air con had recently been fitted to the main bedroom, which was a real bonus on the days when it was >40.C Beds were very comfortable. Rooms cleaned spotless every day with fresh towels and crisp linen. Very well laid out with quality furnishings. We had a veranda that had a great view of the nearby hills and fabulous sun sets. May & Mike do a fabulous breakfast and cant do enough to help. We were very well looked after.

There were many nice touches around the guest house, like the many paintings :)

The swimming pool was great to cool down in later in the day after some sightseeing. Not the biggest to swim in, but great to mess around and play in with children.

Secure off street parking, not that its needed in the quant town.

Room Tip: Go for one above the garage - its the only one like this and has great views

Do yourself a favour - visit Mike & May's lovely 4 star B&B, even if you're not going to Montagu! The rooms are spacious and luxurious, the surrounding garden is paradise come true, the tranquility is divine. '7 Church Street' is probably the nicest guest house I ever visited.

My husband and I spent a night at 7 Church Street in November and only wish we could have spent a week or more! Montagu is lovely, which explains the large number of B&Bs available - but I can't imagine any could compare with 7 Church Street.

May and Mike are hugely friendly and welcoming. The rooms are beautifully decorated and extremely comfortable, with everything you might want provided. Breakfast is a real experience - a feast of delicious, lovingly home-prepared food. May gave us lots of helpful information re what to see and where to eat etc, whilst Mike (who has a wonderfully dry sense of humour) had lots of info on mountain biking in the area. And the garden is simply idyllic - so many beautiful plants and stunningly landscaped with lots of paths to explore, several leading to a pond with lots of friendly ducks living in it.

Everything added up to an overwhelmingly relaxing experience - such a wonderful guest house in such a beautiful little town in such an amazingly stunning location. I am now dreaming about coming back for longer, spending mornings cycling/hiking and afternoons relaxing in the garden/by the pool... Bliss!

If you come to Montagu, really, make sure you stay here - you won't regret it.
