Welcome to Montagu Country Hotel
Montagu lies nestled between the Langeberg and Riviersonderend mountain ranges. The village offers a perfect halfway stop between Cape Town and the Garden Route. The Robertson Wine Route, on of the best-kept secrets in South Africa, is on our doorstep.
The weather is perfect ... Far enough south to escape the heat of the Karoo, far enough north to enjoy dryer winters than the Cape. In winter, the days are warm and sunny, with the occasional hint of rainfall.
Autumn brings on a kaleidoscope of colours. In October, Montagu becomes a picture-perfect haven with the abundance of roses for which it is famous. The general perception is that the wine routes closer Cape Town offers the best wine route experience, but in this wine route one can taste wine on a barge, have sundowners on the river and even have dinner served while drifting soundlessly down stream.

Montagu Country Hotel Accommodation - Dining
Lunch is an outside affair, seeing that our winter middays are the best time of the year to drench yourself in sunshine, and in the summer a vine covers the pergola adding to the country atmosphere. Light lunches and a small selection of traditional dishes are available. In winter, oxtail is a total winner, and our Pear and Blue Cheese Salad is most popular in the summer.
Dinner is a somewhat more formal affair. Kosie Hanekom, our pianist, has produced two CDs already, and lots of guests still enjoy his beautiful playing in their cars or at home. Candles set the scene; the waitress is friendly and helpful and opens your serviette for you. Is this the 21st century? No, we are back in the days when serving was still an art.
