Galenia Estate
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 21 April 2014

We stayed here for two nights on our way from Cape Town to Mossel Bay (via Stellenbosch / Franschhoek). This small lodge / hotel is located within a beautiful estate with really nice walking trails (between 30min - 2 hours). The scenery and the location / setting are amazingly beautiful, if you like tranquility and nature.
The rooms were very nicely decorated, absolutely clean, and the outside shower a highlight. Sitting on the small terraces overlooking the olive plantation with ostriches grazing right before us was just great.
Another highight was the amazing breakfast on the terrace of the main house. In total, an excellently renovated / restored / refurbished estate in a uniquely tranquil setting.

Room Tip: I think all rooms are quite similar and offer amazing views over the estate.

Stayed her for 3 nights as part of a recent trip to the Western Cape.

Les Hauts de Montagu has fabulous views, lovely walking trails and very comfortable rooms. Breakfast was superb. The pool area was comfortable and well maintained, with the same stunning views as our room.

Myriam and Eric were friendly and helpful hosts, and run an excellent lodge. Everything was perfect.

We loved our stay here - highly recommend to anybody looking for luxury accommodation in the area at a reasonable price.

We stayed for one night at Les Hauts de Montagu. We had a single cottage with a great view of the surrounding mountains. In the morning we wee greeted by a group of ostriches and their young in our garden. The place is very atmospheric and managed by a Belgian couple who know how to make their guests feel at home. Each room has all the comforts that one should need, including a stocked minibar and a fireplace. It was getting colder when we arrived and it was great to sit at the fire overlooking the mountains in the early evening. Our room had an outside shower which presented a small challenge with the cold and the wind, but that only added to the atmosphere. If we return to South Africa (which is verily likely) than we will definitely come back here.

Stayed with another couple in February.
Being welcomed on arrival we were impressed with clean and spacious rooms with a nice bowl of fruit and a mini bar for an evening drink on the verandah looking over the valley.
Some great walks on offer with some climbing but easy for most.
Breakfast presentation fantastic and quality equal to that.
A pity that dinner not an option but there are a choice in Montagu and surrounds.
Reasonable value for money at about $80 p.p.p.n.

Our 3rd stay at Les Hauts which we love for the peace and quiet, the lovely views and the warm welcome from Myriam and Erik. A great place to stop along Route 62. Erik,s breakfasts are not to be missed and Myriam will advise restaurants for dinner in Montagu which is only a 5 minute drive away.

Room Tip: Rooms are all the same
