Malherbe Guesthouse

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 28, 2014

Located on Route 62 very close to the town centre. The rooms are located off the road, with secure parking. There is a lovely garden with a pool - a little oasis in which to relax. The bedrooms have lovely big beds with a very well appointed bathroom. Private, comfortable and very clean. The hosts were very welcoming and helpful. Breakfasts are another highlight.

Nice Victorian house on the main road. Lovely main house with nice garden – which however needs a bit of refurbishment – and a very good swimming pool. Rooms are in separate houses, mine was very nice, two steps from the pool, very clean and nicely decorated room, good bathroom. The place is run by a Dutch couple, the lady (Mickey) was serving excellent breakfast – delicious and generous. Also there is a little sale exhibition of cutlery made by a South African designer – could not resist to buy some pieces.

I loved everything about this place. My husband and I travelled from Port Elizabeth to Cape Town and we stayed in some very good hotels on the way but this was my favourite. It is a lovely historic building with beautifully decorated, spacious rooms. We had a room separate from the main house overlooking the garden with a little patio which was very pleasant to sit out on. We had everything we could possibly want - complimentary wifi, DSTV, a mini-bar and tea & coffee making facilities. There is also a very nice pool. Our hosts were delightful. Unfortunately, we were only staying for one night but we hope to visit again one day and would recommend anyone who is visiting Montagu, to stay at Malherbe Guesthouse.

This guest house is a really nice place to stay in Montagu, the room was clean and comfortable and stocked with tea and coffee, free magazines to browse and a good mini bar. It has a good location for the surrounding activities and restaurants and a very nice breakfast. The service was friendly and helpful - very much recommend this guest house to fellow travellers.

Stayed one night based on the Tripadvisor reviews and loved it. Great location, friendly owners, fresh breakfast, secure parking, quiet rooms, comfy bed, good showers and toiletries. All at a very good price.

We stayed two nights and wish we could've stayed longer. Breakfasts are amazing, service is unobtrusive, incredibly friendly and helpful.

Montagu itself is a treat and Malherbe made it even better. First class room/balcony/pool area-every part exuding class and attention to detail. We loved it.
