The location is quiet but good restaurants nearby. The hosts are very friendly. The rooms are well appointed - modern design. A nice pool and garden. Great breakfast with a choice. Would stay there again any time.

Travelling from Cape Town on our way to Knysna via the R62 we stayed at the Malherbe. Very nice B&B in Montagu. Nice garden rooms with lovely swimming pool. Well enough placed in town to walk to most of the restaurants and felt safe. Room was spacious, clean and had WiFi and TV. Breakfast felt healthy and the freshly cooked...

A beautiful guest house with the most hospitable hosts. Our room overlooked the beautiful garden and swimming pool. We had an amazing breakfast sitting in the dappled sunlight in the pretty garden. Just sorry that we only had one night there.

We stayed in this beautiful guesthouse in January. The room was spacious with a comfortable bed and a lovely bathroom. From our private veranda we looked out on a lush garden and sparkling pool. Our hosts were friendly and helpful and breakfast was outstanding. We stayed for two nights but could have stayed longer.

Extra long beds, huge shower area, large oval bath, lovely stoep to sit out on overlooking the pool. Micky excels with her breakfasts, we stayed for three nights and...

A very nice, clean and tastefully decorated B&B. Bed, perfect, breakfast very nice and delicious. Only minor is the price / quality, this B&B is compared to similar B&B's on Garden and route more then 50% more expensive. If your willing to pay for it, we can recommend it, because we had a very pleasant stay.

We stayed for one night in the historic B&B of Micky and Joop. We enjoyed the spacious room, the lovely garden, the excellent breakfast and most of all the hospitality of the Dutch hosts. Restaurants are at walking distance. We recommend the Mystic Tin for dinner. Montagu is a very pleasant village full of historic buildings along Route 62 to...
