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

Enjoy this picturesque village with its hot mineral springs just outside of town. It offers a hands-on healing experience not to be missed! And neither should we be missed - country elegance, space and service, with an unbelievable atmosphere

Relax in total privacy while enjoying our spectacular mountain views. Just below Kanonkop and just above the town centre of Montagu, still within walking distance, Mountain View Lodge in Montagu is almost completely concealed from the street.
