Large and extremely comfortable double room with access to wonderful garden. Larry and Rosa were fantastic hosts who invited us to have a drink with them. Montagu is a quaint little town, with good restaurants, perfect for access to the springs.

Unfortunately we stayed only one night at the guesthouse. It is located in a nice and quiet street. The room was decorated with careful details and provided everything we need. Larry took great care of us and served us a delicious breakfast. In the back of the house is a stunning garden which you would not expect. The Profil pictures don’t even beginn to capture the quiet atmosphere and beautiful garden to relax and enjoy.

Beautiful historic house in fabulous Montagu. The bedroom was spacious and beautifully furnished. Comfortable king sized bed, small fridge, good bathroom and a bookcase full of wonderful books. The garden extends for ever and is filled with beautiful plants and lots of birds. Larry and Rosa are excellent hosts and will give you all the local information you need. The Secret Garden is situated in the heart of the town and everything is just a short walk away. We loved our stay here.

The Room was large and kitted with a library, a tv, a refreshments stand as well as a fridge. The guesthouse itself is beautiful and clearly historic. The garden at the back is surprisingly large and comes with a beautiful swimming pool. The hosts were very helpful and made our stay pleasant.
