Who remembers the great tradition of South African Sunday lunch at a hotel? This is the real thing ! Old-style charm , friendly service, good food and unbelievable value for money. Highly recommended!

We stayed 2 nights at this lovely art deco style hotel. There are lots of interesting artefacts and the owners understandably takes pride in its history . The gardens are beautiful and well maintained. Friendly and helpful staff . Set in the centre of Montague with easy access to vineyards.

Dear D8200XAjillp Thank you for the review. Although located in Montagu, we are a mere 7 km from the Robertson Wine Route. Our gardens are there to be enjoyed by our guests, but also by lots of diferent bird species. The pin tailed wydah loves to put on performances at breakfast times. We look forward to welcome you back some...

We arrived in Montagu late the Friday afternoon. Tired after our long drive. We were met by Winston at the reception. Friendly and warm were his smile and we did feel immediately welcome. Our room was spacious and had a homely feeling to it. After we freshen up, we went exploring and what a GEM this place is. The gardens...

Like being on a film set - this is an amazing art deco hotel. The furnishiings were amazing, although some were a little tired looking. We did not eat in the restaurant but breakfast was good and the garden area was lovely. The staff were very helpful.

P-J B, General Manager at Montagu Country Hotel, responded to this review

Dear ELIZABETH F Thank you for the review. Art Deco was such an exiting décor period, and we have lots of fun collecting original pieces. By doing this, we are constantly changing furniture, restoring "tired" pieces to former glory. At the moment, we are busy with a new suite, and once completed, we can focus on renovating some rooms in...

The service I received was of very good quality. My room was located very well. I liked the fact that smoking facilities were available for me. Overall the staff exhibited very helpful characteristics. They made me feel at home, although away from home. Celebrating the life of my only child, who I lost a year ago at Montagu was very...

Dear lornaj660 What a special review. I'm glad you found some comfort here at the hotel, sorry for your loss. "The purpose of life" is probably the most photographed feature at the hotel, and inspires even us seeing it everyday. I'm sure our paths will cross again, Kind regards, P-J Basson General Manager

Reading the other reviews, I'm not sure I was at the same place. The service was poor. It felt as if staff members were hiding. If and when we did see a staff member, they helped us, but they did not enquire about our needs at all. Dirty cups, empty beerbottles stood at the swimming pool area for hours. No...

Dear Marianne S Thank you for complimenting our chef - in fact we have 2, Bernie and Werner. To respond to the rest of your review is quite difficult, and I would appreciate more details - when did you stay with us for a start.

Brilliant place to stay. Takes you back to the start of the 20th Century. Superbly done, very comfortable and welcoming with fantastic friendly staff and food to remember for a long time. The Yellow tail fish dish was one of the best I have ever experienced. A great chef. Loved the place and wood go back any time.

This enjoyable hotel is almost completely decorated and furnished in the Art Deco style, well, you either like this style or you don't. I like it a lot. Almost everything is original, sofas, dining furniture, cabinets, occasional tables bed heads etc. Cabinets full of tea and dinner services, paintings, prints and drawings. Soft furnishings have of course been recovered. I...

Dear Mikebrod Thank you for the great review. Not one room in the hotel is decorated the same as another. All rooms in the main hotel building are done in Art Deco - to go with the building style. We have 2 Victorian sections in our garden, and one rondawel - done in African style. We are busy with a...

I just loved our overnight stay at this establishment. Everything was perfect. From the moment I made a telephone booking to when we checked out. The very friendly staff was very welcoming, the rooms were special (the hot water shower, especially was fantastic!), the bar service and dinner were excellent.
