friendly owners made us feel welcome and it was immediately clear that they comply with Covid19 protocols, masks were worn properly, our temperatures recorded daily and sufficient sanitizer was available. It made us feel safe and reassured during this time of pandemic. We stayed in the larger room detached from the main house. The standard of cleanliness was very high and the room was comfortable- bedlinen comfy with fans and a mini fridge. Security at the property also good for peace of mind. Lovely gardens and safe parking behind gate. The owner Mike also took time to give us information about the town and ideas on where to go, along with maps. Breakfast was really good with selection of juices, muesli, fruit along with well cooked English breakfast choices. We will return here on our next trip through Montagu.

I had a great stay at Squirrels. The reception was polite and welcoming and the room was neat and had everything that I needed. The hosts were lovely and the breakfast spread served in the morning was great too. The location was also very central with most of the town's restaurants within walking distance.

Wonderful and gracious hosts who do more than go the extra mile. They hand out hot water bottles and ointment for the weary traveller and even help clean off all the mud and debris from a nasty fall. You make the best fresh fruit salad!!!!

The welcome and care of Mike and Anne was really touching and left good memories. The room was very sapcious and comfortable, with a secure parking and small amnities such as refregirator and coffee/tea facilities. The breakfast was excellent and the entire home was lovely (including the yard, birds etc.) Mike's tips and suggestions and tips for activities and places to eat were great as well. Worth mentioning that it was a bit hot in the room, and the ceiling fan helped only a little.

We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us. We note your comment about the fans, but unfortunately your visit coincided with one of the few exceptionally hot days that we do occasionally experience during this time of the year. We have considered air conditioners, but the cost of purchasing, installing and operating them would necessitate us increasing our rates, and they are only really necessary on a handful of days. Also, with the current constraint on resources being experienced by South Africa, we decided against adding to the national burden. And obviously air conditioners would not work when there is load shedding!

Wonderful hosts, great accommodation and the best breakfast ever. We also enjoyed having a wood burner in the room to keep the place warm. Squirrels' Corner is also very nicely located and provides safe off-street parking.

Squirrels Corner is a fine spot to explore Montagu and the area. Extremely friendly & helpful hosts will advise, and serve up an excellent breakfast.
The location is just a block from the 'main' street and enjoyes fine views of the valley and mountains from the house and private garden.

The highlight of our five-day travel along Route 62, was meeting Mike and Anne. They were so helpful and made us feel at home. The breakfasts were special and we appreciated the interest they took to make our stay so pleasant. Thank you Mike and Anne, we sure plan go visit Montagu some time in the future. Kind regards, Angelika and Marlene

This is a lovely b&b, the rooms are a good size and very clean. The breakfast is very good . The hosts are very friendly and suggest restaurants and walks in the area. Montagu itself is very pretty. A big thank you to the hosts for helping us with our problems, unfortunately we had to cut short our holiday.
