“Suggest stay more than one night”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2014

Used this as a stop over but would recommend 3 nights. Superb accommodation and well fussed over the owners. Welcomed with a glass or two of red wine. Nothing too much trouble. Views stunning over olive trees and mountains. Lots of birds to see from garden, and walks to hot springs. Montagu full of nice shops, galleries and restaurants. Room very comfortable, shower and bath, excellent taste. Tea coffee, wine, TV etc. Can sit on balcony use of sun loungers. Would happily return but for longer as one night far too short.

Best Guest House we have stayed in in ages! Such an unpretentious, but simply stunningly elegant place in the valley. We felt so spoilt by our hosts with the most amazing attention to detail that puts Montagu Vines a cut above the rest. From the glass of wine on arrival and the ready to light fireplace to the heated towel rail and delicious breakfast - this is what weekends away are supposed to be like!

Room Tip: The Luxury Garden Suite is amazing and definitely worthwhile

Thanks to Ursula & Montagu Vines for sponsoring a prize that I won at a fund raising event in Cape Town. My husband and I went this last weekend and had a brilliant time. We didn't spend too long in the room as were went out most of the day visiting some of the marvellous wine farms in the area but it was so lovely to come back at night to find the fireplace in the room all set and ready for us to just light the match. The room we had was a standard room, one of the originals and very nicely furnished and suited us just fine with a nice sitting area in front of the TV. Ursula couldn't do enough for us, offering a welcome drink on arrival, giving menus of local eateries and some general information and maps. Breakfast had a good selection and was served until 10am which is civilised for people on holiday. I would certainly recommend this B&B and am sure I will be back again.

We have been coming up here for the last 3 years and still can't get enough of this place. From the superb hospitality of the owners to the comfortable and beautifully decorated rooms, one can not ask for a better 5 star home from home experience. An amazing getaway and only a short drive from Cape Town. Can't wait to go back.

We returned to our long time favorite place after the change of ownership and were glad to see that it has only changed for the better. The new rooms and building have been made respecting the old style but according to all modern standards and best quality. The view from the new breakfast room is even better than before. We love Montagu and Montagu vines and will keep on coming back. In fact it's one of the top 2 guest houses where we have ever stayed on our numerous trips to SA and the only one where we have always returned. I just hope that the new water pond will not attract birds that would disrupt a poor sleeper's mornings too early. The breakfast was better than in any other guesthouse during the whole trip. Thank you for all of the very professional staff!

Campbell and Ursula thank you for the continuous effort you guys made for our rowdy group. You were outstanding with dealing with all the various requests pertaining to everyone's needs. Most of us were there for four nights and we loved every minute. The rooms were lovely and the breakfast was from the top draw. See you next year.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
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. ... more   less
