“Relaxing in the Wilderness”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 December 2011

What a beautiful spot! Great views from the terrace, very peaceful area, an inviting swimming pool and such a great hostess. Our room in a small 'cottage' in the grounds was very clean and comfortable and we enjoyed having a our own little patio for drinks, reading, or just watching the world go by. We were unable to walk as far as we had hoped in the Wilderness national park as the bridges had been washed away, but it did not detract too much from our stay.

My daughter and I stayed at Montfleur for one night in August. It was an ideal stop-over for us coming from CapeTown to travel the Garden Route. Lou and Denise cooked a delightful evening meal for us at short notice and gave us good advice on where to go and what to do during our brief visit to Wilderness, including arranging a local horse-ride for us. Our twin room at the front had views of the bay and was spacious, clean, light and attractive. A short, steep climb up to the house, but this is compensated by the view. I would say the warm welcome was absolutely genuine and I would definitely go back to Montfleur again.

Lou and Denise were the most gracious hosts! Mount Fleur is soooooo relaxing and the view of the ocean is breath taking. My room was very spacious, clean and the heater option for the bed was an added bonus. Wilderness is a great place to takeout some time for you and/or explore all the beauty of nature. I really enjoyed the welcome and friendliness of Denise and Lou, I look forward to visiting them soon as I have recommend Mont Fleur to plenty of my friends already!

After exploring Cape Town and much of the Western Cape, we really enjoyed our relaxing stay at Mont Fleur. From the moment we pulled into Wilderness, we felt right at home. Denise, Lou, and the rest of the staff we were wonderful! We were a little early for the beach, but are looking forward to the chance to go back again when we can spend some lazy days on the gorgeous white sands. We enthusiastically recommend Mont Fleur to anyone who is considering it!

Our stay at Mont Fleur was a very unpleasant experience. The place looks nice, with a small pool that we did not use since it was raining when we arrived. We were given the cottage closest to the road. This cottage has just a small window on the side, with no view at all, and is quite dark. It has a very small porch. The bathroom was good with both a bathtub and a shower. The room smelled heavily of mold, and the smell was worst in the wardrobes, which could not be used. We arrived on New Year's Day, and were told by Denise that all restaurants were closed, but that they could prepare a dinner for us, which we gratefully accepted.
We shouldn't have. We did not ask for the price, since it seemed like a very simple meal. Which indeed it was, but the price was not. We have had delicious meals at good restaurants for less money. And this was a meal below any standards, even a teenager cooking his first meal could do better. The uneasiness was enhanced by the mock-friendliness of the hosts, and the prententious introductions of both dinner and breakfast (the latter being OK but very simple). E.g. adding one more glass of bad wine and a small glass of dessert wine to the dinner was presented as "the wine-tasting option" and added €5 to the price, which is a ridiculous price in South Africa.

Nice location overlooking Wilderness and within convenient (safe) walking distance of the small centre with a choice of restaurants. We stayed in one of the garden cottages and felt the accommodation could do with a facelift. It was certainly not up to the standard of some of the other 4 star places we stayed whilst on the Garden Route. A shame as Denise was a welcoming, informative and helpful host and the breakfast was good.

The location of this B + B is excellent for walking to the local restaurants, shops, beach & lagoon. The hosts Lou & Denise are good hosts and try hard to assist where needed. We were accommodated in room number 1 which is directly connected to the common area, separated only by a stable door with glass in the top half, affording one with little privacy. Additionally all guests have to pass the external windows of this room to go to the common lounge area and breakfast. Unless you keep the blinds closed you have no privacy at all as everyone can see into your room. The room's decor was very tired, smelt very musty and is in vast contrast to the more updated decor in the rondavel rooms.

The other member of our group was give a tiny single room which must have previously been staff quarters. The room was minute, just fitting a single bed, and is stuck at the back of the guest house, not at all ideal!

We feel for what we overpaid for the rooms we got!
