John Montagu Guest House
Experience tranquil Victorian living at the beautifully restored John Montagu, only 2 hours drive from either Cape Town or Oudtshoorn - an ideal retreat away from the hustle and bustle of city life and in the fruit and wine bowl of the Cape.

Centrally situated in a quiet street in the picturesque town of Montagu, it comprises five luxury en suite bedrooms each uniquely decorated .

Montagu is surrounded by the magnificent panorama of the Langeberg and is world famous for its healing hot mineral springs, historic buildings, exquisite mountain scenery, tractor rides to the summit of the Langeberg mountains, hiking trails and muscadel wines.

John Montagu Guest House is within easy walking distance to restaurants and our historic village offering you off-street parking and a swimming pool.

John Montagu Guest House offers five beautifully furnished en-suite bedrooms each uniquely decorated in a Victorian style. There is a choice of double or twin beds.

Each bedroom has a unique character in terms of linens and colour co-ordination. No effort has been spared to make each guest feel at home.

Smoking outside only.

Breakfast is served in the sunny dining room overlooking the pool. Enjoy a breakfast of fresh fruits, home made breads, scones and muffins, but a full English breakfast is always available.

Relax in the comfortable lounge browsing through the many books on display. Or on sunny days and warm evenings splash in the beautiful beach pool in the rear garden. Or sip a cooling drink in the poolside bar.

Montagu has become renowned for its wonderful year round climate and Hot Mineral Springs.

Vineyards abound and red and white muscadel is considered to be the area`s specialty.

Enjoy visiting our two museums, one specializes in herbs, the other in the history of the town. Or walk round the town and see the many National Monuments.

Stroll in Joubert Park, which is the entrance to the Nature Reserve and starting point for most of the walks and trails.

The town boasts over thirty National Monument houses, two of which are utilised by the Museum society.

Many of the gardens in the centre of town still have small apricot orchards, which give a wonderful display in spring.

The Nature Garden is a must for lovers of indigenous plants especially in spring, you may use the hide to observe the bird life. Many artists and craft workers have chosen to settle in Montagu.

Their work is on view at the museum, the three art galleries and the monthly Craft Markets held in the town.

Informative guide maps for the trails, historic houses and Kanonkop Hill are available from the Tourist Bureau.

 Reviewed by Caleb Jacobs over a year ago

Fantastic place for relaxing and to get away from hustle and rut of the city. Tranquil surroundings and beautiful rock pool for relaxing . Best of all was meeting and chatting to other guests .Mauveen is a very warm person and made us feel welcome and offered coffee even if we only booked room only. Perfect host. Will definitely use them again. Only 3min away from hot springs. Already recommended them to friends. Thank you for a nice weekend. Doereya Beydon
