I booked a room at Airlies Historical Guesthouse in Montagu with the intentions of having a relaxing and well experienced weekend away. The guest house exceeded my expectations and I truly enjoyed my time there. The staff were extremely friendly and well educated on the surroundings, giving guidance the the top wine farms in the surrounding area, must do actives and must see attractions etc. The facilities were beautifully persevered, clean and gave an honest aura of life in the early 1900's. Most definitely a 10/10 from me. To the Airlies staff and owners, your service and hospitality is one like no other. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

Airlies is magnificent, right from the history behind the building through to each unique room. The architecture is something to behold and once you step inside you feel as though you have gone back in time. It is the perfect guesthouse for any history lover. They don’t skimp on luxury either, there is a nespresso machine in each room and delectable chocolates on your bed. Welcome to luxury in the olden days.

we stayed at airlies for 2 nights. we had a very spacious room. exclusive bathroom, but no fridge. soon they placed a fridge in the room. internet was very low, max 1 mbps. we are quite dependent on good wifi, the manager tried her best to get more speed from the provider, with hardly any result unfortunately. all in all great stay. breakfast was very exclusive. and as i said, very high service level.

We stayed at Airlies in August and it was great. the house has been lovingly restored and is now just a delight to see and stay in. Each of the rooms is different and each has a great feel of old time charm and yet wonderfully luxurious. The house is located near some fantastic restaurants and right in the middle of a bustling little town
