Good but not very good for the money the place is neat and tidy. The hot water spring could do with a clean as they are full of sand and dirt. The access to the pools is rather strange not included in the price of the stay but, You must pay R15 per person per day they should rather include this in the cost of the stay. The shower was broken but they did come fix it as soon as we reported it. Next door is Avalon springs hotel that has a very nice cocktail bar.

We enjoyed our time at Montague Springs. Friendly and helpful staff.
Grounds well maintained. However, accommodation needs attention, small things that a good Housekeeping Manager should address. For example, bed lamps that are not plugged in, a broken couch cover that looks terrible. For the rate paid, better standard of quality is expected....small things that can be fixed with some attention to detail. Stayed in 109 Golden Terraces. I would not return nor recommend. I have stayed at other establishments for less that are far better value for money.

Every memorable moment of our recent trip to the Langeberg region took place away from Montagu Springs, which is not usually to be expected when booking a stay in a family resort. As is made clear by innumerable reviews on this platform and others, the interiors of the chalets are too dated and shabby to overlook. Given that we stayed in one of the higher-end units, I shudder to think what anyone bamboozled into booking a trailer-park-style Plettenberg chalet has to put up with. The views from our chalet were fantastic, albeit somewhat spoilt by the incessant loud music blaring from guests' patios below. The hot springs were closed for renovations when we visited, so we were limited to the use of one overcrowded heated pool, which came at an additional cost over and above the already exorbitant nightly rate. While the staff were certainly friendly, this unfortunately couldn't make up for the overwhelming sense that the establishment has been resting on its laurels a decade too long. What better proof could there be of a resort stuck in the previous century than the fact that our unit contained a full set of fish knives, while WiFi was capped at a gigabyte per device? I'm sorry to say that the face of tourism has changed dramatically since this spot's heyday, and it's only a matter of time before Montagu Springs is eventually left in the dust.

From the start trying to get hold of someone via phone or whatsapp was a challenge. Loadshedding (2hrs at a time for max 3 times) was blamed for not coming back to me via whatsapp after no one came back to me for 16 hours. When I addressed this at check in, it was brushed off. After check-in we found some things that was not to standard and wanted to let reception know however they already left. On the door was an emergency number however when I called the phone was off (subscriber you have dialed is not available). I emailed Montague Springs however no response up til now (3 days later). On checking out I've brought to the receptionist attention of the aircon that didn't work, something was wrong with the TV (blank black screen), the gas stove had a knob and plate gone (safety hazard especially as we had kids with), no keys in the bathroom door (key hole filled with toilet paper) , a broken blind, the couch was torn and thatered and the curtains was moldy. At no point was an apology given or the manager called. It was just an 'ok' and the keys were taken. We were appalled by the service and some of the facilities and our guest from South Korea was disgusted. We would not recommend this to anyone!

Never go here. The property is terribly maintained. There were holes in the floor where we stayed, rips in couches, tears in curtains and our unit stank of urine. We even asked to move which was a slight improvement, the new unit had a plank covering the hole in the floor.

If you want to visit the hot pools you have to pay an additional R20 pp pd and if you want to visit the hot pools by the hotel it is an additional R165 pp pd. You also don't get access to the hotel side of the pools and what you do have access to is essentially 3 warm puddles. I was so outraged at the lack of maintenance of this property considering the price we paid. Do yourself a massive favour and avoid this place.

I will say the staff at reception were lovely and helpful.

Response from G Hathers, General Manager at Montagu Springs Resort
Responded 05 Apr 2024
Thank you so much for taking the time to post a review following your recent stay at Montagu Springs. Having only recently taken over as General Manager of the property, one of my priorities has been to carry out an assessment of each accommodation unit, and put together a program to systematically upgrade the units. With regard to charging for the heated pool, this was implemented some years ago in an attempt to minimise the number of people occupying the pool at any one time. We certainly do not want overcrowding in the pool - especially too many children- which would have a negative impact on the peace and tranquility of the area. Hopefully one day in the not too distant future, we will be able to build additional hot pools, which will be included in the rate. Unfortunately, Avalon Springs is a totally separate company, and we have no control over the prices offered by then, although we are trying to negotiate a better price for our resident guests. They have recently spent R28 million upgrading their pools, mainly for their resident guests who make up 80% of their business, hence day visitors are not allowed to use their resident facilities. Your comments have been noted and will be passed on to their management team for consideration. There is, however, a “Kids Club” at Avalon Springs, which kids from Montagu Springs are more than welcome to join, free of charge. We are really sorry that our resort did not meet your expectations and would like to offer my sincere apologies for any drop in standard which you experienced, but I really appreciate your kind comments regarding the friendliness of the reception staff. Once again, thank you for your review, as it is only through feedback and constructive criticism from our valued guests such as yourselves that we can monitor our performance and improve our service.

Spent two nights at the resort. Chalet is admittedly a bit out-dated and basic, but had what we needed. Staff were friendly and helpful. Perfect for a short quick family getaway, close to Cape Town.

Gas cooker and water geyser was a blessing during load-shedding.

This beautiful resort is nestled in the mountains of Montagu in the Western Cape. The hot spring waters brings the health benefits besides the fun of frolicking in the various pools all over the place.
The staff are friendly and attentive and there are a range of accommodations to choose. From the hotel rooms to the mountain chalets or even the multitude of self catering units and even some villas at the end.
After a weekend here, we felt so relaxed and ready for the complexities of the rat race again.

A beautiful resort with situated in a wonderful area. The staff is excellent, especially Karen at the reception. She is so well informed regarding the resort and gave us advice what to do and where to eat in the Montague area. We were so impressed with the accommodation as well as surrounded by beautiful nature. What a pleasant stay! We will defiantly book again.

The Chalets we stayed in were very dirty, smelt like mold and very run down. Having to pay to use the warm pool and some facilities was a first for me, this should be included in your stay. Other than the weather & cold pool that was great. Our family will not be back soon, nor in the near future

No.50 is not that big and would recommend it for 2 adults and 2 children under the age of 7. My boys were 8, 11 and 11. But overall we had a wonderful stay. The pools was nice and the we had so much fun playing soccer and riding bikes
