Reviewed 4 days ago NEW

Excellent hospitality, and lovely place. Not withstanding the changes being made to the house, Deon went out of his way to make sure that we were comfortable. I would have preferred a choice for breakfast, rather than the set option for the day (French toast), though.

This is one of Montagu's heritage houses and quite lovely. The owners have recently taken it over and are upgrading it, and although it is true that the floorboards creak and there are some oddities at present like washbasins in bedrooms, those do not detract from a very comfortable bed, large room and excellent breakfast. Highly recommended.

Well, a pleasant surprise. The guesthouse is under new management and Deon and his associates have done a very tasty decoration in harmony with the age of the house (1851). Deon our host told us that there are more things to come but already now it is like walking in a museum! Deon is a marvellous host with a lot...

Perfect location, house with character. Very spacious room wityh a balcony. Creative and excellent breakfast with a choice of menus and prepared with professionalism and passion. Only the small washbasin in the bedroom instead of the bathroom was a bit clumsy.

Dear Eddo Thank you for the lovely review. We really enjoyed your company. The little basin was an idea from the previous owners and it works well with the room as there is limited space in the room Kind Regards Deon and Jaco

Such a warm welcome from our host. Rooms are BEAUTIFULLY decorated! Like taking a step back in time and experiencing true victorian charm. The wine and chocolates in the room add that extra special welcome. Truly a Gold class experience!

Guesthouse badly in need of updating. Beds uncomfortable - mattresses old and well worn. Bathroom needs updating - shower slippery and low water pressure. No TV - wifi codes given long after arrival as an afterthought. Apparently new management taking over soon - hopefully improvements will not mean price hike!

The guesthouse was wonderful, the breakfast was excellent and the surrounding views gorgeous. The room was large and very comfortable, no tv which I did not mind. The pool area very very nice and beautifully kept gardens. All in all and very enjoyable stay.

Lovely old house and our hosts were very helpful. Their garden was a pure delight. Hopefully the new owners who come in March can try not change the character of the house/garden too much! Overall excellent stay

We stayed at Airlies for 3 nights on the 16thJan 2017. We were allocated the 2 garden rooms which were very nice. Well furnished with huge bathroom. The room also had a fridge.
