Dit voel asof jy daar kuier.
Airlies Gastehuis was 'n wonderlike ervaring. Dit is 'n pragtige historiese huis. Die gasheer en gasvrou was baie vriendelik en het die geskiedenis van die plek met ons gedeel. Die kamers (losstaande van die huis) was gerieflik en netjies en die ontbyt was HEERLIK!

Dear Corrie and Tielman,

Thank you for the wonderful stay for my daughter and me at your gastehuis. A very good start for our little trip through Western Cape.
I didn't fix my comments on the review page, because I don't want to share my private data with another big organisation.

But with --> 5 points in every category <-- my text would have been:
"Such a nice accommodation in the historical house and the wonderful garden. Our room in the garden house well equipped, clean and calm.
Fantastic breakfast, so friendly and helpful hosts. Perfect!"

May be you can use it - without my email-address etc.

Best regards from Lübeck on the icy Baltic Sea

“Excellent overall experience. An impeccably clean, peaceful & cosy guesthouse”

We loved our stay at Airlies. We stayed in a spacious room in the garden near the pool. It was extremely clean, private & had a beautiful view of the church, main house & garden. The pool is so clean. The garden is exquisite. We slept so peacefully. The breakfast was delicious. Have the mushrooms, tomatoes & eggs. Fresh herbs from the garden make for a beautiful taste. Tillman & Claudia are friendly & very helpful. We will come back with the rest of our family.

Wonderful venue to stay Our family thoroughly enjoyed this guest house.

The owners are warm and friendly, and go out of their way to assist and advise where necessary.

The garden is absolutely beautiful, and the rooms are really well equipped and comfortable.

All you want for a comfortable stay is provided, plus a few little extras just to add "a cherry on the top".

Recommend it highly.

Hi Tielman and Corrie, thank you very much for accommodating us during our stay in Montagu, we had such a great time and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Your guest house is very comfortable and we were so glad to be staying at it. Not sure if we will come that way again soon, but will definitely consider staying with you again should we be blessed to do so.

Me and my wife decided to take a day trip to Montagu and ended up staying overnight at the Airlies Gastehuis.We were warmly welcomed, and given excellent advice as to the day activities in and around Montagu. The atmosphere at Airlies was very relaxed as well as our room that had all the necessities for our stay. The following morning we were greeted with an excellent breakfast before setting out on our "tour de montagu". I would definitely recommend them if a warm homely stay is what you are looking for.

I am sad that our stay wasn't longer!
From the initial inquiry through to the goodbyes this was an excellent experience.

Airlies was the perfect place to be based for walking in the mountains, exploring the town and resting between great breakfasts and personalised hospitality.
The spacious rooms (and bathrooms) with incredible views were comfortable, clean and a happy place to simply be.
Looking forward to going back as soon as we can!

For the second time we stayed at Arlies and again it was a great pleasure to be here. Clean and spacious room, friendly host and hostess, quiet situaties behind the mail building, excellent breakfast. Value for money. Host and hostess know how to get happy guests.

We stopped off for one night between Oudtshoorn and Stellenbosch and found an absolutely delightful little town. It looks like it probably hasn't changed much in the last 50 years. Airlies was a lovely traditional guest house with a Victorian style. The rooms were large and very comfortable and the owners advised on restaurants and booked them for us.

Could not have asked for more. Tielman and his wife went out of their way to make sure we were all comfortable and our bikes were locked up safe and sound. On race day we all awoke at 3h30 to get to swellendam in time for our start at 6am. Tielman already had the coffee ready and cereals out for us to feed our faces before we tackled the ride. WOW !! that is what is called service MANY THANKS !!!!

Wonderful stay What a lovely haven of peace. Airlies is one of those places where you will always be made welcome and, a place where you will always be confident to return to again. Wonderful hosts who will do everything they can to make your stay comfortable and, they have a beautiful home into which you are welcomed. A place I will definitely be happy to revisit and I hope to do so soon. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

Owners very friendly. Made to feel at home from the word go. Made to feel very welcome and at home. Room excellent, owners very friendly and breakfast great. Received very good advice from owners regarding Montagu. If my wife and I are going anywhere near Montagu when we return to South Africa - and we will return - we know where to stay!

Recommended It was a delight to stay with Tielmann and Corrie (and their three dogs!!) After the hustle and bustle of Cape Town, Airlies was just what we needed to unwind.

Very good! We stayed two nights at this lovely, peaceful place. The warmth, the décor of this historic home, the delicious breakfast and helpful friendly hosts, Tielman and Corrie, were delightful. A real value for money place to stay!

What a beautiful place! Rooms utterly luxurious and beautiful. The bathrooms are outstanding and modern. Breakfast was of the highest quality, will definitely stay there again. Just one suggestion - a place to braai in front of the rooms. Thank you Tielman & Corrie for your outstanding service and hospitality!

A lovely long weekend! My husband and I stayed at Airlies for three nights in June and had a wonderful time. The rooms are clean and neat, the staff are very friendly, and the B&B is centrally located in the town. It was nice and quiet and we left feeling refreshed and "uitgerus". Would definitely recommend Airlies to other travellers to Montague.

Great stay Spent two nights here. Very friendly couple who were more than willing to point us in the direction of good restaurants and attractions. It was very clean and homely and the room had its own little patio which was a good choice.
