We stayed for one night at Mimosa Lodge and would go back again - possibly for longer. Everybody was so friendly and the service was really efficient without being too formal. We had a garden room which was really spacious and well appointed. There was no AC which we were initially concerned about but there was no reason to be; the room was really airy and there was also a large fan. The outlook from the room was lovely and indeed the whole grounds are beautiful and clearly very well cared for. We spent a warm, relaxing afternoon by the pool and enjoyed a few drinks from the honesty bar.

Dinner was the highlight of our stay; we started with a welcome drink outside and then had a four course meal in the dining room with matching wines chosen for each course. The food was sublime - I still dream about that meal!

At breakfast there was a good buffet selection and also hot eggs etc on request which were cooked very well.

Overall a fabulous stay and we can't wait to go back.

We arrived late so couldn't see the terrific view til the following morning which was a very nice surprise! The kitchen had stayed o[en for us and we were treated to an excellent four course meal and I also opted for the four different wines to taste with each course - all from their own label. A great location, excellent spacious rooms with their own terraces and very friendly service - Bernie was a very attentive host!

I have stayed at Mimosa Lodge several times over the past 20 years, under different ownership, and I was delighted when, this week, I stayed there again and found that it was just as good as ever. The rooms are spacious and elegant, the garden is beautiful (we had a garden room) and although we didn't have dinner (but I know what their amazing dinners are like) we had an excellent breakfast. We hadn't booked a room, but when we arrived out of the blue at about 5pm the staff were friendly and helpful and, as we only wanted a light meal that night, they happily booked us in to a local restaurant for dinner. We very much enjoyed our night there and will undoubtedly stay there again.

Room Tip: The garden rooms have little patios looking onto the lovely garden, and are quiet. I have stayed in...

stunning lodge, book the Garden Rooms, they are spacious and between beautiful gardens and walkways. Definitely book for the fine dining and wine paring dinner, it is well worth it. What makes this place extra special is the wonderful staff and I have to mention Bernie. Big personality, friendly, helpful and nothing is too much.

The hotel is situated in Montagu, which is on the road from Oudsthoorn towards Cape Town. A preferred overnight stay from the tiomes such a trip took days. Montagu itself is a small sleepy town, we did not explore.

This is a small and old hotel with enormous character. The service and personnel are very friendly and supportive. We had had a late lunch so we decided not to eat so much for dinner. First we had a drink in the bar and then we decided for the starter ( fixed menu). But the starter was so delicious, that we took the whole menue. And we did not regret that. Fantastic food and wine.

The room was newly built in a new house outside of the old hotel building. Huge area, room and bathroom, and very special design, We really liked that. It was clean and comfortable, nothing to complain about.

We left that hotel after a magnificent breakfast with the intention to return

Room Tip: Maybe you let them show you the room first, we were fascinated

Mimosa Lodge is our home away from home. The hospitality and warmth of everyone made our stay really enjoyable, as always. We have stayed at Mimosa many times and have always been delighted by the personal attention and the brilliant food. Looking forward to our wedding there in September! Thanks Fida once again!!
