Fodor's Expert Review Montagu Country Hotel

27 Bath St., Montagu, Western Cape, 6720, South Africa

This delightful hotel was originally built in Victorian times but was extensively remodeled in Art Deco style after a fire in the early 1930s. The present owners highlight its architectural flourishes and collect furniture and artifacts from this era to complement the interior. There's palm-shaded swimming pool surrounded by lounge chairs in the pretty garden. The dining room serves an excellent breakfast and straightforward lunch and dinner, often showcasing South African staples like Karoo lamb. Ask about trips to the wine route.
