I loved the piano accompaniment to the Sunday buffet meal. Breakfast can be taken on the stoep facing a lush garden and one can sit outside in the warm summer evenings
As residents at the Hotel we decided to try the Art Deco restaurant. Like all good eating establishments of the 1930s our meal was accompanied by tinkling on the ivories, and the pianist played standards that were well known to most of the more mature patrons. The food was good, hot, large portions and the wait was not excessive before... More
When we were there it was quiet, but the staff was very helpfull and nice. We had good food. We even got a desert to share, just for tasting! Ever so nice and it was special an sooo sweat.
We had dinner at the hotel, specially for their Lamb shanks as it came highly recommended from the lodge we stayed at. Food took quite a while to arrive, i assumed duo to a private group dinner in an adjacent room. Lamb shank was nice but huge, with a lumpy mash and soft butternut all over the show. Appearance of...

Always a lovely atmosphere and good food. Variety of South African dishes well cooked and presented in a beautiful setting.
Dear Annie W, Thank you for your great review! We specialise in traditional South African dishes, and are happy to know you enjoyed your dinner with us. The atmosphere created by the combination of good food, friendly service and, of course, the piano played by Kosie is very special to us indeed.

Recently we used the Montagu Country Hotel as a meeting point for friends travelling from Cape Town & onward to a game lodge 35min drive outside the town. We had been to the Hotel before & felt it was a good central place to meet & have lunch before driving on in convoy. However, when we asked for the menu... More
Dear Jill S Thank you for taking the time to write this review. Montagu is indeed a very central stop, halfway between Cape Town and the Garden Route on the historical Route 62. We have a 5 day itinerary worked out, using Montagu as base, offering daytrips to the surrounding area. We have new tenants in our building next door,... More
As the new logo and board state - the home of Route 62... this is a place filled with nostalgia and a must see for every Art Deco lover. Just book in, stay the night, enjoy a GRAND dinner with piano music in the background, chill in the sunny court yard or swim in the Mineral pool... meet some locals,... More
Thanks Mareletta, for you review! We are indeed the home of Route 62 and proud of it. We also pride ourselves on being the only Art Deco hotel in the country. Kosie Hanekom on the baby grand piano certainly adds to the ambience of our restaurant while enjoying a great dinner by candle-light. James Mulligan, Chef More

It is always such a pleasure for me to go out and greet our guests each night and to build a relationship with them. We have many return visits by... More
See original review, and no parking required. Pity we didn't stay there for the evening as we did not see the inside of the hotel, rooms or any other facilities. maybe a next time...

It is olde world and the decor is so different. The staff are friendly and very helpful. Nothing is too much trouble. Getting back to the meals -... More
