I really enjoyed staying here. I would definitely stay again and recommend it. My rare fillet steak was cooked to perfection - not easy. I loved the Art Deco stuff - such an elegant era. Off-street parking a bonus.

The service received was exceptional. Every single staff member is customer focused and dedicated to providing superb service. The hotel exudes an old world charm and the garden is a lush tranquil oasis.

Our room was furnished in the same style as the rest of the hotel and although the room was comfortable the bathroom needed some TLC. We were served in the bar and restaurant by a very jolly waitress and she made the evening special. The evening meal and breakfast were both good. The garden area was charming and we stayed... More

I loved the décor of the hotel reminiscent of days gone by and the beautiful garden. I loved watching the Red Bishops and Pin- tailed Whydah birds at the birdfeeder. I found the staff very friendly and helpful. I enjoyed coffee and cake and on other occasions local wine in the garden or on the verandah. I recommend the cheesecake... More

Dear Rose K Thank your painting a beautiful picture of our hotel. I fully agree that the birdlife in the garden adds something special. Another option of seeing some interesting birdlife is by taking a short walk to leiwater dam, with hundreds of Ibis, Heron, Egrets milling around. We look forward to welcome you back soon.

What an amazing experience. We booked the Cadallac forthe Saturday. PJ gave us the most amazing trip of the wine farms. Also sharing the history of the area. The 4 of us stayed in the hotel for the weekend. We all agreed that the staff were excellent, always there when you needed attendance and the food was excellent.

We had an excellent stay on our way to Cape Town. The Food in the restauran was splendid, just wonderful. Staff was very friendly, the rooms very clean. Though the way from the parking lot to the rooms is full of stairs. "complaints" on a very high level, though.

Service at this hotel is very good. The staff are very friendly and helpful. This makes up for the rooms which are in need a little spruce up. TV was not tuned, and there was little hot water in the morning. The rooms were clean but the linen a little tired. The breakfast however is not to be missed.

We visited the Montagu area 2 weeks back. The hotel was on a “MUST SEE” list & it did not disappoint. From the outside it does not look like much, as soon as you step inside the place just takes you to another era. The staff are very friendly, food is also affordable.
