Very nice hotel. Staff are very friendly. When we arrived it was a bit late but the kitchen staff went out of their way to make a chicken salad for us which was great. We appreciate that. We will be back.

It was a wonderful experience in one of your luxury rooms. The room made us feel part of old Montagu, but with all the modern facilities. Staff friendly. Breakfast excellent. Gert Lubbe and Manager PJ were such wonderful hosts.

We had the most delicious, candlelight dinner. The service was excellent with very attentive waiters. The food was superb. There was a pianist which created just the right atmosphere. This is a must visit establishment whether for lunch, dinner, accomodation or just a drink. Highly recommended.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this unique hotel with it's art-deco style furnishings and very friendly staff. There were a few nice surprises: a lovely, reasonably priced massage at the garden spa, the 'jacuzzi' bathtub in our room and great live piano music during an enjoyable dinner in the Dining Room. Would love to go again!
