We were looking for a place to overnight between the Garden Route and a safari near Ceres and happened on Les Hauts online. We had an exceptionally good experience. The hotel is part of a working olive farm which is also owned by the hotel proprietors. As the name implies, the atmosphere (and most of the clientele) are French, but no problems there. The setting is magical, looking out over mountains, the town of Montagu (about 3 km away) and rows of olive trees. We had a number of breakfasts on our trip, but the one served at Les Hauts was the best in terms of variety and presentation. Service at breakfast was a little curt, but forgivable, that. The room is comfortable - charming, with a thatched roof - and the outdoor shower was actually a significant benefit. There are a number of walks that can be taken on the property, and we found ourselves regretting that we only booked a single night there. Really, we feel fortunate indeed to have stayed at Les Hauts de Montagu.
