We reached Kingna Lodge, Montagu after a long drive from Cape Town on Christmas Eve. John, Joy and his entire family welcomed us with such warmth that it felt like we were coming home to friends and family. John very thoughtfully ensured we got a dinner reservation on Christmas Eve when most places were closed The property itself is beautiful...

Nothing seems to be too much trouble for John : we arrived early & were given the freedom of the house as he was going out, including use of the honesty bar ( the first drink being on him). Arranging a table at local restaurants? No problem! The house is a step back to a bygone age, full of genuine...

Our second time in this beautiful house, this time in room 1, a spacious and beautifully decorated room as well as the rest of the house. John is a great host, unfortunately his wife Joy was not around but by himself he made us feel very special and welcome. A great spot on a good location and an excellent breakfast

A great welcome in a hotel that is loaded with antiques and memories from the past. The owner gives you a warm welcome feeling and takes you back in history. A beautifull breakfast room, a pity that we could not dine there

We had a very warm welcome from John who encouraged us to sit on the veranda and relax with a drink before registering. He had very kindly reserved stable for us at a very good local restaurant for dinner. Our room was comfortable, withe plenty of space and a small private patio. The door to the patio was difficult to...

We spent one night t Kingna Lodge in November 2016 and couldn't have been more satisfied. The owner welcomed us with a cold beer after a long drive while he sorted out a mixup with our booking that was caused by the booking agent. The room was beautiful, we had the suite, breakfast excellent and our hosts booked us into...
