Dear 364denverd Thank you for the review, much appreciated. Easter, like most of April and May, is a great time to visit Montagu, with beautiful vistas of changing colours. Winter is also special, muscadel flowing to warm you up! We look forward to welcome you back soon, Kind regards, P-J Basson General Manager

We stayed here in April this year and found it to be absolutely charming... we did not explore the town itself, as the hotel was blissful with its two swimming pools and magical mature gardens (as well as resident cats!). The decor of the hotel was really stunning - original 1920s furniture, pictures etc, and with a live pianist during...

Dear chenry999 Thank you for the great review, much appreciated. Montagu as village has enough to do and see, and caters for all tastes. But sometimes we have guests that just prefer to linger around in the hotel and gardens, and then we enjoy seeing them relaxing with us. Our cats are called Coco and Gabrielle, both named after Coco...

Best place to be at in Montagu. The garden is very refreshing and relaxing. The antiques are marvelous. It shows that if you take care of things, they will take care of you. Things never get old but deteriorate due to neglect, and thus hotel shows hit to maintain and look after building, material etc to maintain their beauty and...

Dear Q3305GMthomasr Thank you for the review - a very relevant one at that! One of the main challenges of running this hotel is the upkeep of the buildings and furniture, but it's also part of the fun. We work with pieces that hails mainly from the Art Deco period, and some needs TLC when we get them. We are...

This was our first visit to Montagu. We arrived in time for the Sunday buffet lunch which set the standard for all that followed. After a couple of days in Cape Town - where the unwary can expect to be fleeced - it was a pleasure to be served a three course meal with coffee and cheese and biscuits at...

Dear Jaysea2017 Thank you for the comprehensive review, much appreciated. All the rooms in the main hotel building is decorated in the Art Deco theme, together with the public areas. We have 2 other sections - Carrington Villa and Just Joey, both Victorian style, and decorated in the same way. We just finished a new suite in that section, perfect...

We love spending time at the Montagu Country Hotel as there are not many hotels left in S.A. where you receive such friendly and personal attention. From walking into the reception area to eating outside in the peaceful garden courtyard everyone makes you feel as if you have come home and are part of a family. Service is amazing here!
