Surrounded by magnificent mountains, Montagu is well known for its beautifully preserved Georgian and Cape Dutch buildings. This historic building has been carefully renovated and offers 16 individually decorated rooms/suites, each with a bathroom and a private veranda or Victorian balcony. Mimosa Lodge is well known for its creative cuisine. Only the freshest herbs, salads and vegetables are used, many originating from Mimosa’s own lovingly tended garden where more than 200 plant species thrive. An old water reservoir with heavy walls from natural stone has been converted into a wine cellar; wines are a perfect match with an excellent dinner. Relax in the salt-water swimming pool, which is heated during the cold winter months. Take a stroll through the grounds to the sweet-scented rose garden, the apricot orchard, and the Karoo Garden that introduces you to the plants, shrubs and bushes from our semi-desert area. Enjoy an evening in the ‘The Club’, where a piano is ready in case the atmosphere inspires one to sit down and play. The lodge has its own library, with literature in several languages by well-known authors and novelists.
The room was very big, however the chair in it was broken, they staff were nice, but didn't give us that really welcoming feel.the breakfast was subpar.
the gardens were amazing and the dinner was fantastic.

Dinner sensational. Off staff. Extremely hot and only had a ceiling fan so had to sleep with the main door open all night. Would not go back.
