This was the first time to this little gem for one night only, but it won't be our last. Beauty surrounded us, fabulous! The hotel was magnificent, and staff were overwhelmingly friendly. Thank you...

This was our second visit to Montagu Country Hotel, same time last year,and it only gets better. As soon as you walk through the door you feel relaxed and nothing is too much trouble. We stayed for five nights and dined in for four. The food was first class and the home made soup was delicious. The bedroom was spacious...

Enjoyable hotel and very friendly staff. I will recommend the hotel as it is well situated and a good experience. Rooms a bit old fashion but slept well. Food was superb at dinner and breakfast. Service from all staff was excellent.

Dear 86barendb Thank you for the review and compliments, much appreciated. We decorate in either Art Deco or Victorian style, depending on building style.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The service was very good. The room was neat and clean. The mattress was a bit uncomfortable, but still got in a good sleep. The antique furniture and garden is beautiful and very relaxing. We will definitely be back, maybe with some extra company as well. Thank you very much

Five years ago we arrived for a milestone celebration, it was a memorable time in all fronts, everything was well presented, the staff were attentive and the service and quality were first world.

Dear Dunner12 Thank you for the review. I believe you need at least 2 nights to fully appreciate both the hotel and surrounding area, I'm glad you agree.

Comfortable and enjoyable stay for one night. It would be fine to stay for longer but Montagu itself holds no real interest but maybe this hotel could be a fine jumping off point for exploring the greater area. The art-deco furnishings and decor in the rooms and public areas are most interesting, unusual and worth seeing. Don't miss the 2...
