Montagu
Reviewed 26 July 2016

As we stated in our review of the Hotel - One could feel the community spirit of Montagu and we felt it at the Hotel as well. We have stayed there before and once again time seemed to have stood still - we weren't rushed at all and enjoyed our break at the hotel tremendously.

Overall had a lovely stay. Staff was very friendly, helpful, and service was very good. Room was very comfortable and clean. Dinner in the restaurant was great and breakfast was good. The two individual "baths" with (spring water) was a let down.

Dear csG7419BL Thank you for the review, I'm glad you a lovely stay. With regards to the baths - these are normal baths fitted in our treatment rooms, utilizing heated mineral water from a well on the property.

Warm reception and great service, the staff truly make you feel at home. The rooms are spacious and newly renovated bathroom was amazing. Had a soak in the spa bath, and a relaxing dinner at a roaring fire! Art beautifully curated.

P-J B, General Manager at Montagu Country Hotel, responded to this review

Dear juicefenucci Thank you for a great review. In winter, we burn about 20000 pieces of black wattle wood in 4 fireplaces in our dining room and public areas. This creates a lovely warm atmosphere, and heats up the whole building, including our first floor bedrooms. Another bonus is the fact that black wattle is an alien species, and by...

Old world charm in the center of town. Two very nice lounges with art deco furniture from the 1950's. fantastic restaurant with the ambiance of days gone by of fine dining. Very colonial atmosphere with even a piano player at night. Really great.

Staff good and trying hard, room very poor. Air conditioner notisd from 1st floor room like a truck reving all night and kept us awake and could not sleep. Felt as if we were in heavy traffic. Very poor for a 4 star hotel and expected a 4 star room!

Dear lionels664 Thank you for taking the time to write a review. It is not acceptable to be disturbed at night, please accept my apologies. The hotel was 100% full, but had we known about the noise from an a/c unit, we could have done something about it.

We enjoyed the hotel very much. The Spa could do with an upgrade but the service was good. The food was great, although it did take a while to serve after ordering. Apart from a hot water problem, our room was comfortable although a bit noisy.

Dear Lyndre M Thank you for the review, I'm glad you enjoyed the stay with us. Montagu is a good option for winter breakaways, with cold nights, but great days.

Conveniently situated this Child and Pet friendly Hotel is everything for the romantic couple or the entire family. Our twin rooms were spacious tastefully furnished with a mix of both "Art Deco" furniture which dominate yet easily mingles with the touches of charming "old worldly" but new soft furnishings.

Dear Shafiah K Thank you for the review. We welcome families at the hotel, and realized a long time ago that pets form part of most families.

We couldn't have asked for a nicer 4 days in Montagu. A centrally located hotel with ambiance. A touch of old world charm: coffee in the garden, hotel bar, piano player for dinner, many fireplaces and the owner still greeting you at dinner. Will gladly return.
