Beauty and elegance in nature. A warm and personal touch and a fantastic breakfast! It is close enough to town for lunch or supper but in the tranquility of nature. The outdoor shower is the best. We hope to go back.

What a gem highly recommended this guest house is nestled right at the foot of the Langeburg mountains. It had to be one of the highlights of our trip, stunning views, exceptional food and excellent service. with a feeling of being remote although it was a five minute drive from Montague Town. Attention to detail made our stay perfect from...

This hotel was the best we had on our entire road trip. The location is amazing in the middle of nowhere, with the mountains in the back. It is beautifully renovated and looks entirely new. You get in there and feel at home right away. The owner welcomed us warmly and gave as dinner recommendations as they do not serve...

Our second trip to this fabulous place more than lived up to our expectations. Immaculately clean rooms and bathrooms, very well equipped with wonderful views. The breakfasts were outstanding and we cam recommend Les Hauts very strongly. There are lovely walks with birds (including ostrich) and animals to see. We ate twice at Simply Delicious in Montagu and can recommend...

Great experience. The owner was very helpful and a great host. Attention to detail was shown in all aspects - from a fire place with wood pre-stacked and a bunch of lavender to burn - to beautifully presented breakfast. We arrived via helicopter - and although there is a helipad - it is a little bit far from the rooms....

My partner and I (gay couple) checked into this hotel for a romantic weekend away. The hotel didn't disappoint. We we greeted warmly and our room (with an outside shower) was phenomenal. Let's be honest, when was the last time you had a shower with the Milky Way providing the light and dramatic mountains providing the backdrop? The breakfast was...

Route 62 - South Africa's equivalent of US Route 66 - takes travellers through the beautiful hills and valleys of the Cape lined with fruit farms and vineyards. This B&B tucked away just off the road on the outskirts of Montague is simply sublime. Quiet with stunning views and a lovely pool set amid olive groves is among the most...

This is without doubt a stunning location but it's lacking something and I'm not sure what. I agree with another reviewer who noticed the (pristine) signs everywhere, and the whole place is pristine, and quiet, and beautiful, but.... The ostriches are wonderful, as was the giant tortoise who came to visit by the pool, the room was comfortable if a...

The setting for this hotel is truly a amazing, offering total peace and quiet. A lovely swimming pool, with ostriches looking on! The rooms are beautifully appointed with many luxuries including an outside shower, so what a shame that they should fall down on little things such as only providing two small sachets of milk for either tea or coffee,...

Superb location, excellent facilities and a breakfast from heaven! The walks around the estate are well worth exploring - you may not see the tortoise but you will see the ostriches! It's a couple of miles outside Montagu but well worth accepting the extra distance from your evening meal to wake up in this relaxing, peaceful place.
