“Great Hosts!!”
Reviewed 9 December 2013

My girlfriend and I stayed in the under-new-management guesthouse on the 6th Dec. The room was very cool despite the heat outside. The bath room was very spacious and the toiletries are home made soaps made by an elderly lady living in Montagu. We loved the toiletries so much that we purchased them the very next day at the local farmers' market. My partner was very impressed by the wash towels provided in the shower (something we rarely see).

Simon and Wendy are friendly and excellent hosts who really made us welcomed. The two of them are very experienced in the hospitality industry. They also gave us wonderful suggestions regarding our travel plans for the rest of our stay in SA.

My partner and I stayed for 2 nights on our tour of the Western Cape and loved the place, Wendy and Simon were great hosts and the room was very comfortable. Wendy sure can cook, the food in their restaurant was so good we ate in the restaurant both nights despite our desire to explore the cuisine in the area and Simon was a mine of information on the best (affordable) wines from the region. I have strongly recommended the B&B to my brother and his friends in Cape Town and do so unreservedly to anyone passing through the area who enjoys good wine and excellent cooking at a reasonable price. I will definitely return on my next trip to South Africa to see if the resident owl is still around and to give Wendy further tips on gravy!! ,

Room Tip: A small and intimate accommodation, all rooms face onto the courtyard.

We enjoyed our stay at this under-new-management guesthouse. Montagu is worth a visit (in our case, to climb rocks). The included breakfast is great! The convivial hosts also help with area attractions.

As a solo traveller I found Four Oaks to be an excellent B&B as the hosts Simon and Wendy were friendly and sociable making me feel at home. They have recently taken over the establishment and the dinner at their restaurant Simply Delicious was excellent. I will definitely return to Four Oaks in the future and recommend it to my friends.

Spent an amazing weekend at Four Oaks Guest House thanks to our wonderful hosts Simon, Wendy & Kaylee-Ann!! From our lovely welcome from Simon to the sumptuous cuisine from Wendy with such attention to detail to our little entertainer, Kaylee Ann all resulted in an all round perfect weekend away :-)

We were surprised by the accommodation and level of detailed attention from Simon and Wendy in this historical house.
The guest house is located close to other businesses and popular restaurants, but it is also possible to have dinner in-house. The breakfast was served with lots of personal attention.

What a super place to stay in Montagu. We were warmly welcomed by Simon and were soon joined by his delightful wife, Wendy and their little daughter Kaylee Anne.
The bedroom was comfortable and quiet, off the inner courtyard.
We met early in the evening for a drink in their bar which is decorated with interesting 'quotes' from people as diverse as Nelson Mandela to Marilyn Munroe. After a friendly chat about the local area and our travel plans, we ate a most delicious meal cooked by Wendy. The food was of the highest quality and presentation. The menu was limited and diverse and capable of adaptation. A good selection of wine, all at reasonable prices. Well worth a visit, we'd go again.
