The Montagu hotel is a charming Art Deco property with many period furnishings and full of character. The rooms are excellent, and the staff are friendly and helpful. The food, however, doesn't live up to the surroundings. Dinner (a mild lamb curry substituted for the lamb chops which were not available) was very average and the vegetables were overcooked.

Dear David W

Thank you for taking the time to write a review on your experience at our hotel. I'm glad you enjoyed the atmosphere, and appreciate our Art Deco furniture.

I discussed your comment on the Bobotie with our chef, and the necessary attention will be given.

Safe travels,

Kind regards,

We used the hotel as stop over to our holiday in George (Victoria Bay) It is your typical country hotel with charm and you feel relaxed the minute when you're welcomed at reception. Very comfortable rooms, great food and professional staff made our stay a great one. Highly recommend this little gem when you're looking for a country hide away. My kids fell in love with the owners K9 "Tippie" and the pianist during dinner time just added that little extra to the already wonderful ambiance of the hotel.

Dear Werner P

Thank you the review, I'm you enjoyed your stay with the family. Tippie is indeed a true hotel dog, and adores children. We had a lot of local travellers heading to coast use us as a stopover en-route, and it's always nice for us to welcome guests already in a holiday spirit.

We look forward to welcome you back, hopefully sooner than the next holiday season.

Kind regards,

P-J Basson

Dear J. F S

Thank you for the review. I agree with you that the hotel needs a revamp, and we have been busy with a structured plan since June 2013, and we have done the following up to date :

• Converted our worst 2 rooms in the Art Deco section into a suite, now the best room in the hotel
• Covered our patio area at the rear of hotel with louvered roof
• Removed all carpets in the classic rooms and sanded down the original Oregon pine floors
• Replaced all carpets in the hallways
• Repainted all the public area and restaurant

We still have more projects lined up, but have to consider our in-house guest with everything we do at the hotel. I would like to welcome you back at some stage in the future, I’m sure you will approve of the changes made.

Kind regards,

P-J Basson

Situated in the most convenient spot to shops and restaurants, this hotel has beautiful gardens and very professional staff. The spa prices and services are not to be found in many places so a spa treatment is definitely a must.

We are almost locals at The Montagu Country Hotel with at least 2 visits per year, staying for between 3-5 nights at a time.. We love it for many reasons, the staff are great, the food is yummy. The Wellness Spa has much to offer. The rooms are very comfortable, in winter the rooms in the hotel are good and in summer the garden rooms are the best. 2 swimming pools, one warmer than the other, and the gardens are spectacular. It is so lovely to sit outside and relax and enjoy the serenity that this hotel offers. IT IS A MUST.

Room Tip: Many rooms to choose from, all have different views so browse the website to get the best ones.

Dear Robyn Harvey

Thank you for the review – we cherish our return business, and enjoy the opportunity to get to know our quests a little bit better. Montagu is only 2 hours’ drive from Cape Town, so it is quite easy to break away here any time of the year.

Safe travels for 2014, looking forward to see you back in Montagu soon.

Kind regards,
