Early July 2015, drove into Montagu without a pre-booking, stumbled onto this unlisted-in-Lonely-Planet B&B; fantastic hosts, informative, hospitable, willing to help, even gave us a cherished map as a gift to us hopeless unprepared types! Mid-winter, our room was warm and comfy, breakfast with awesome mountain views, lovely lovely lovely!

We found our hosts to be friendly, informative and very obliging. They advised us of all the places we could go and where we could eat. Our accommodation was roomy, comfortable and very close to the hub-bub of Montagu. We really recommend it.

Gave us local maps and advice. The suite we stayed in was comfortable although the bed a bit hard for my back! Breakfast... More

Our hosts were such wonderful people, so happy to help you with directions and even made dinner reservations for us. Our room was in an annex with an extra large bedroom, hallway and easy access to garden, where we spent a relaxing half hour with our cup of tea and books. Montague is a very lovely town in wine country,... More

Lovely garden room at a reasonable price, Our host Gerhardt has a wickedly dry sense of humour and is a mine of information about the area. Be aware there is no Wi-Fi and you will have to pay in cash but it's worth if for the lovely room, the great location, the comedy host, the sage advice about the surrounding... More

Definitely a good place to stay for a night or more in Montagu. A quiet street, a beautiful garden, a comfortable bed, super clean and nicely decorated room and bath, and friendly, welcoming hosts who make sure their guests enjoy their stay and know what to see in this charming little village.
