About Montagu Country Hotel
The Montagu Hotel’s Colonial “Art Deco” style is based on the 1920’s Paris design. This unique style is themed throughout the hotel, making the old world charm very evident. In a region known for its hospitality the staff at the hotel aim for personable but professional service.
All rooms are initially decorated in either Art Deco (classic) or Victorian (luxury) style.
Our luxury rooms are substantially more spacious than the classic rooms, and are equipped with mini-bars enabling guests to stock up with drinks and fresh milk. All luxury rooms also have separate bath and shower where the Classic rooms mostly have shower over bath.
Our classic rooms, although somewhat smaller than our luxury rooms are creations of extreme comfort for our guests. Gay colours typical of the Art Deco period are being used and every room is furnished with a beautiful Art Deco dressing table and fabrics of that period. Most classic rooms are in the main hotel.
The Hotel offers traditional cuisine, complimented by local wines, while Golden Oldies played on a Baby Grand takes you back in time. The Dog and Trumpet pub and wooden deck is the ideal spot for a sundowner.
Guests can experience the healing water of our mineral pool. The Wellness Center specializes in health treatments, and boasts a steam room and mineral bath.

Montagu lies nestled between two mountain ranges halfway between Cape Town and the Garden Route, on the legendary Route 62, with crystal clear air, free of any pollution. The weather is perfect…far enough South to escape the heat of the Karoo, far enough North to get away from the long wet winters of the Cape.
The Robertson Wine Route just outside Montagu offers a diversity of estates ranging from incredible Cape Dutch Homestreads to informal boutique vineyards in the most beautiful gardens with history attached to every tree planted. This wine route is best known throughout the world as the Wine Route with gardens alongside the road as far as you drive - an attraction in its own right.
From Montagu there are a variety of footpaths to choose from. Lover’s Walk being ideal for an early morning stroll, especially with the tortoises, dassies, guiniefowl, Egyptian geese, and the odd baboon or small buck that shows itself. Montagu is well known as a rock climbing destination.
Niel Burger’s tractor ride up the Langeberg, and the optional potjie that goes with it is a must. Downhill cycling is a vitalizing experience to bring even a tired heart to pump adrenaline. Then there are the famous Hot Springs for those who suffer from ailments such as arthritis and rheumatism. Most other aches and pains will find the warm waters most beneficial. The Montagu holiday world can best be described as the oasis of the Cape.
The magic of this area is its wonderful dry healthy climate, nature walks, 4X4 routes, cycling, top cuisine and for those who like country living – one can use the Breërivier Winelands as the base from where one can visit Cape Town and the whole of the Western Cape.
Route 62 is the historical route, which was the main link between Cape Town, the Garden Route and Port Elizabeth before the N2 highway was built. It is not only offers a 70 km shorter option between Cape Town and Oudtshoorn, but also runs through the most beautiful mountain passes, alternated by typical Klein Karoo vegetation, vineyards and fruit orchards. It passes through 14 beautifully preserved villages where time has stood still for 40 years. Most tourists would prefer to drive this picturesque road instead of a National Highway. Indeed “Route 62” does not have to stand back for it’s legendary and by now world famous sister, Route 66, in the USA.
