True Victorian in the Little Karoo. In great condition, with a unique array of highly interesting collectibles. John, one of the hosts, can provide fascinating history. He is generally very personable and happily gave me several well informed suggestions of places to visit

We stayed for two nights in february and had a lovely time. Both John and Joy are very helpful. We had some nice conversations with them and John told us a lot of the history of South Africa. The house is beautiful and has a history of it's own.

We arrived at the gate of the hotel with no reservation but the owner, John, welcomed us warmly and served us gin and tonics on the verandah! Very civilized, we thought. We had a wonderful stay there - the rooms are beautifully furnished, the beds are comfortable and the bathrooms are all they should be. Much thought has gone in...

Amazing personal service in this small yet amazing Lodge. Extremely friendly staff, great breakfast until late, very central and extremely comfortable rooms (only the shower could be improved a bit). Nelson Mandela once stayed there!

Rooms are spacious and well furnished. Our host, John, was superb and the breakfast wonderful. The lodge is in town and next good restaurants are around the corner. It is also close to wine farms for wine tastings.

We came to Montagu and looked for a sleeping place for one night. So we ring the bell and get the door opened. A nice young men with the name Fuseini opened the door for us and show us the rooms. Every room was free and we decided to stay in a smaller room for the night. Fuseini was really...
