Mountain view lodge was not a pleasant stay. We visited Montagu in December 2016 as part of our road trip in the Western Cape. On arrival, the owner Maud was very welcoming and sweet, however her husband should not be running any form of guest accommodation. He is arrogant and not welcoming at all. His comments and aura makes one...

We spent 1 night here on route to Oudtshoorn. We were given a double room which had very dark decor and very dim lighting. The bathroom was ok though. The pool area is lovely and there are great views over the surrounding area. The owners were not particularly welcoming or friendly and we weren't offered any cooked breakfast. Would not...

If you're looking for a romantic break away, don't think about staying here. If you're stopping over for one night, or a backpacker on a rest stop, then this is a good choice. If you're looking for privacy and quiet night, forget about it. The rooms have a sliding door window and a thin see-through curtain is all that prevents...

Thank you for taking the time to write this "story". It was amusing to read. The only true fact in your story is : there was a TV in the room, something we don not advertise but do provide in some rooms.

We recently stayed at the Mountain View lodge on the recommendation of friends, who stayed there and rented bikes from Alain and Maud. The team are friendly and the accommodation is value for money with clean and spacious rooms with breakfast, car parking, bar service with ambiance, good selection of wines and Belgium beers at half the price you should...

The room was very clean and tidy. Bed was comfortable. The room was a little airless but was ok for the night. Breakfast was very good with a continental flavour. Our hosts were very keen to assist us with information regarding our onward journey.

it has to be said that the mountain views view is epic and was a highlight for me. Maud was welcoming and friendly but her Husband Alain was a condescending and patronising man and I found him rude and unpleasant. He single handedly ruined our stay and experience in one sentence and even though the breakfast was excellent I was...

Owner was completely self indulged and should not be running a guest house. The 3 of us felt like he was our client. Rooms very basic, none have a view, apart from the footpath with other guests walking by. No white towels and linen I'm not sure was fresh. Hot and stuffy in the room, no fridge or TV.

Friendly place, no surprises. For what you pay, you get great value: clean rooms, excellent breakfast, barservice with ambiance, good selection of wines and (of course) belgium beers at half the price you should pay in belgium.

Stayed 4 nights, they had a lovely well worth special running "book 3 nights get the 4th for free". The rooms are extremely clean, modern, functional, open-plan, European style, with a slight touch of African art. If you are into clutter rooms with dusty carped floors and overwhelming decorations, this not the place for you. If you are looking for...
