Koo Karoo is always a delight. Very clean and comfortable, with all the necessary amenities one would need. Shirley is an awesome host and we'll always prefer this establishment compared to the host of others available in Montagu...

Neat and clean. Well equipped unit. No little extras like welcome cookies or a choc on your pillow which we had at other self catering units. Near to restaurants and various hiking trails.

Koo Karoo is within walking distance of restaurants and mid town Montagu. The owner, Shirley, originally from the UK but purely South African in heart, is friendly and goes out of her way to make you feel comfortable. The room was well appointed with everything we needed and the fireplace place in main lounge made for a cosy and delicious breakfast in the morning. An enjoyable stay.

What a lovely guest house. We stayed in the cottage. It was clean and neat. All the facilties were easy to use. Our host was very sincere and humble. There was a water supply problem, but she resolved the issue a.s.a.p. I will recommend this venue to anyone. You'll see me soon.
