My family and I had a wonderful stay. The pool areas and gardens were neat and well kept. The scenery and views are just amazing and we will return again. The staff are just FABULOUSLY friendly and helpful.

I was very disappointed with the whole setup at Montagu Springs. The Large Plettenbergs that we stayed in was so cold and cramped. There are no telephones in the chalets, even though the guest book says that you can contact reception if you require anything or assistance. There are no towels supplied to the chalets either. The shower area is so small that you hit your hand each time on the ceiling while utilizing it, and the strong smell of gas fumes in the bathroom is so strong it makes it unpleasant to use the bathing facilities. Yet you do not have any other option but to use it, and each time you do you find water seeping out of the bathroom towards the back door. We had to pay each time we wanted to use the hot water pool, which I think is a rip off. There is no internet reception unless you purchase airtime from the establishment to utilize their WI-FI availability. We are a family of four and stayed for four nights at a price of R1000.00 per night. This works out to a pretty penny at the end of the day. When you compare other establishments for the price that we paid you get better value for money and your stay is enjoyable. I was not impressed at all and would not recommend it to anyone.

We stayed 4 night in a Josmont Heights unit, which aren't the nicest ones. Our unit was worn out and dirty. The heated pool is too small for all the guests. The pool area of the hotel is bigger but crowded with day visitors. Except the nice play ground it was a bit of a disappointment for us. It is cheap though.
Great for family budget

Montagu Springs is a lovely place to take the family. It felt like a safe place away from home. My children loved the freedom they had to ride bikes and play on the grounds. I appreciated the break and fresh air for all.
The staff was very warm, friendly and helpful. Everyone really did their best to make our stay enjoyable. The grounds are well kept.
A huge highlight for me was the warmest pool in all of South Africa. Absolutely worth the extra rand for the daily fee. It was relaxing even in the evening.
Just be mindful that the large and small Plattenberg structures will remind you of a trailer park. Inside the flats, everything is clean and inviting. We especially loved having our own braai. I must say that you can't judge a book by its cover because Montagu Springs gave me the most relaxing two days a mom could ask for.
