Reviewed 14 August 2014

We spent 3 nights in the lodge and we liked it very much. The oweners are verny friendly and try to help where they can. They gave us a map of montage und explained where all the things are
It is very familiar there. We had a lodge with two seperate bedrooms and one shared bathroom. Everything was clean and the lodge was very comfortable
We got a great lodge for a good price, i can highly recommend this place

Excellent self catering accommodation in the town of Montague - very central. Paul & Shirley were helpful and available. The accommodation was spacious and clean with all the bits & pieces that you would need for a self catering stop over.

We recently enjoyed a relaxing weekend in the comfort of Koo Karoo Guest Lodge in Montagu. Our English hosts, Shirley and Paul, saw to our every need and made sure we were comfortable. Their warm hospitality made us feel right at home.

Room Tip: The Blue Room is a great room for a happy couple

We have been spending part of our South African holiday at the Koo Karoo for the last four years and each year it seems to get even better. Comfortable room, good breakfasts and Paul and Shirley are so friendly and helpful. The Koo Karoo is definitely the best B & B we have visited in South Africa.

We were fortunate to have the old cottage which has been lovingly restored. We had plenty of space and self catering facilities (that we incidentally did not need) The breakfast was plentiful and varied and the service A1. Lovely pool to cool off too.

We had a one night stop over in Montagu and stayed in the cottage at Koo Karoo. The cottage was clean and very comfortable. Breakfast was good and Shirley and Paul were friendly. Location is perfect for walking to restaurants and in to the centre.

We stayed in the 2 bedroom s/c cottage. We really enjoyed using the braai outside, and being able to cool down in the pool. The cottage was fine, and had everything we needed for our one night stop. It was a very hot night and the fans were a little noisy - aircon would have been a bonus.
Didn't see much of Shirley and Paul, but they seemed very nice and welcoming.

Many thanks for your comments and that you enjoyed the braai area and pool to cool down. We are constantly looking to make improvements in our rooms and self catering facilities and we are currently exploring the purchase of high quality ceiling fans for the forthcoming year, so hopefully this will provide more comfort in the future summer season. We hope to see you back one day in the future. Kind Regards.
