Montana Guest Farm
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 20 December 2016

We chose to stay at Montana Guest Farm for a few days of total relaxation. The comfort of the Cactus Suite were found to meet our need of relaxing in a peaceful environment without being in the hussle and bussle of a busy holiday season.

Spa bath in the room relaxing and well kept. Private swimming pool near the Cactus Suites convenient although a bigger swimming pool also available on the premises.

Breakfast is basic but acceptable.We decided to have dinners at closeby Restaurants simply to add to the relaxation, but dinners available at Montana.

Rooms have DSTV and Wi-fi should one prefer to laze around. Close to all the major attactions such as Cango Caves, Cango Wildlife and Ostrich Farm.

German hosts friendly and ready to welcome all.

Room Tip: Cactus suite 3, access to 3 balconies with different views.

We were very pleasantly surprised by this splendid accommodation near Oudtshoorn. Everything was perfect, from the reception to the delicious steaks and breakfast chef Alfred. Our cottage exceeded our expectations, very spacious and luxurious with a private pool. Our two year old son was more than welcome, they did everything to make him comfortable and he still talks about Alfred, Wolfgang and the house dog Jessica. We will be back and we will recommend you! Thanks for the great stay!

Room Tip: The Cactus suites are wonderful, very spacious and with a private pool

We were looking so forward to this stay. We chose a more expensive place to stay so we could have the best, as it was our little romantic getaway.

I think one time this was a lovely place. But everything was a disappointment.
Our room was okay, clean, nice linen. Bath was a jet bath, did not work.

No where to go for dinner, as it is miles from anywhere, so you sort of have to stay at the venue to have dinner. They only had a few things on the menu, but extremely expensive. We do not mind that, if the food is good, but if it is in a home dinning room, and you have to eat with the owners, I would have expected a lower price.

Food was terrible!! Service was also bad. The waiter was not only serving us, but was the cook, with such an attitude on him.

We had other guests staying there as well, and we all had to sit with the German owners, and they were also not happy with that.

Our romantic get away was ruled by them. Also when we were just about finished dinner and finally relaxed, and could chat to the other guests, the owners stood up and said, okay, that is if, everyone to bed. ha ha, we felt like kids.

Food as bad as it was, was so out priced it was more expensive than a Cape Town restaurant. So if you stay at this place, do not eat there.

Wine list was minimal, and not any good choice.

When we left after breakfast, because we did not tip our (waiter/cook), our waiter/cook, who in the morning was now the receptionist to give us our horrendous bill, could hardly say goodbye to us. We were on our own. Not even a walk to the door and a wave.

Would we go back: NO THANK YOU

Room Tip: Our room had a lovely view of the mountains, and gardens

We stayed at Montana Guest Farm while doing selfdriving tour in South Africa. We arrived an enthusiastic welcome from Wolfgang and Dagmar. After we were shown our room we had a lovely swim to cool off. The main house is an old colonial, verandahed home, with the guest rooms located in 3 separate buildings across the lawn. Our bedroom was large and had a spacious well equipped bathroom, and a very comfortable and huge sitting room. Wolfgang and Dagmar had thought of pretty much everything to make us comfortable. Before dinner - every evening - the hosts all guests for sundowner, nice idea for getting to know the other guests. We enjoyed an excellent dinner on the verandah of the main house. We only wish we could have stayed longer. Wolfgang and Dagmar were a genuinely hospitable couple and couldn't have done more to make us feel at home. We come back!

We stayed at the Montana Guest Farm for 1 night in May, during a 10-day Roadtrip through South Africa and enjoyed the hospitality of owner Wolfgang a lot! We were welcomed with a nice glass of Sherry and had a great ostrich fillet for dinner, followed by a very nice chat with other guests and the owner. We were there during a time with lot of governmental-ordered black-outs in the evenings, but this absolutely did not affect us at all - more than enough flashlights, candles and lanterns were provided!
The room was huge, with a separated bedroom, furniture was rather of a traditional style but looked very nice!
