Travellers' Choice
Montagu Vines is situated in the historic conservation area of Montagu. The main farmhouse was built between 1900 and 1910 and reflects the early Victorian influenced Karoo style farmhouse of that period. The 6 Garden rooms and 2 courtyard rooms overlook the newly planted Olive Grove and compliment the stately main house. Following the damage to the vines from the floods of November 2008 the vineyard was removed in 2010 and replanted with an olive grove.We offer our guests a taste of old- fashioned comfort and luxury in the town of Montagu on the world famous "Route 62". You can relax in the splash pool set in the tranquil gardens with magnificent old oak and milkwood trees. Alternatively, you could lounge on the lawns enjoying the glorious views of the surrounding mountains whilst sipping a glass of local wine. Montagu Vines Guesthouse is just a stroll away from the centre of Montagu with its amenities that cater for all tastes and interests. There are restaurants, bistros, historic churches and tranquil gardens for the visitor to enjoy. Montagu Vines guesthouse is the perfect place for those intimate weekends, birthdays, and anniversaries or as a stopover whilst discovering "Route 62" and all it has to offer. You may be lucky and see the "resident" owls perched in the old oak tree or meet one of the big tortoises in the olive grove or surrounding areas that visit from the adjacent nature reserve.

If you are heading to Montagu- you must stay at this incredible guest lodge - it is beautiful in every way- great comfort - amazing hosts - spectacular setting - plenty of open space - a dam and a pool to swim in ! A walk in the olive grove in the morning is incredible! Just perfect! Extremely “Covid safe” .

What a fabulous guesthouse...but it is certainly much more than that . My husband and I with friends stayed here for 3 nights. It was very easy to find and the location was perfect with the most amazing views of the mountains and overlooking the olive groves, and just a five minute walk from one of the best restaurants I have been to in a long while. The accommodation itself was second to none..each room large and extremely comfortable with all the usual amenities plus some. It was like luxury accommodation but in someone’s actual home. It was the tiny little extras that counted...and here there were many. Breakfast was well presented, tasty and plentiful. A braii was also arranged for us for one of the evenings. Nothing was ever too much trouble. Most importantly though were the hosts Pam and Anthony - they were the most helpful and charming people I have met in a very long time in the hospitality business. They were always available to give advise and to share some very interesting stories on the area.. a lovely couple. To end my review I must not forget to mention that I have never, and I mean never stayed in a place where cleanliness was not far from godliness...everywhere was spotlessly clean and sanitized which is especially important in these times of covid . A visit to Montagu well deserves a stay at this lovely place.

We stayed three nights at Montagu Vines. We were welcomed with a bottle of wine, cheerful hosts (Pam and Ant) and lovely spacious rooms. Nothing was too much trouble. Breakfasts were 'oh my word' amazing.... cereal, croissants, cheese, eggs any which way, bacon,...Local dinner bookings just happened on request and hiking and winery advice was given with ease. We had a really really great time in this little town. Best experience on a month long road trip. We will be back!

Our first stopover on our Route 62 tour and the bar was set impossibly high for all the other places we stayed in. The room was so tastefully furnished, the attention to every little detail evident and the views of the garden, dam, olive grove and mountains so stunning. A lovely touch was being offered a drink to enjoy in the late afternoon. Pam and Ant are the perfect hosts, genuine warm people who ensure that you have an enjoyable stay. We were impressed that the hosts support local businesses, the toiletries were produced locally. We walked to the local restaurant they had booked for us and we loved the fact that we were able to do this. It was a privilege to have been guests at this exceptional guest house
