Every other recent review has summed up Koo Karoo for you. It's quiet, well appointed, comfortable, homely, clean and welcoming. Look no further.....Shirley ( who runs it ) will ensure that your stay is fabulous. Montagu is a lovely town with beautiful buildings and flora. The Guest House is nice and central, close to restaurants and shops, and we were...

On our trip through ZA we've been to several guesthouses and Koo Karoo was one of the best. Shirley gave us a warm welcome and introuced in everything very well. The rooms are tidy and spacious, the guesthouse itself has a nice location in Montagu. We had a good time here. Thank you! Gerald and Claudia

Hostess Shirley was very friendly and welcoming. She also gave me a map to the wedding venue where we were attending a wedding on Saturday. The room was spacious and very comfortable. There is a safe parking area. The breakfast was delicious. We will definitely go back as the setting and the price was perfect. Thanks Shirley !

We stayed at the guest house for 1 night only, but were so sorry to leave so soon! The friendly hostess and comfortable cottage (at the back of the house) made the stay a real pleasure! It is also very child friendly with a patch of grass in an enclosed garden so that parents can relax without the little ones...

We had chosen the self catering option at Koo Karoo for a short stay in Montagu. We were welcomed on arrival by the owner Shirley and shown around the one bedroomed apartment - which was well appointed with all that we needed for our stay including all appliances, crockery, cutlery etc and the major DSTV channels.
