A foodie gem of rustic charm on Route 62

A former millionaires’ retreat, Montagu remains a peaceful stopover for those seeking respite and beautiful mountain views on a scenic shortcut along the Garden Route. Epitomising the town’s country charm, Mimosa Lodge is a homely-feel kind of place with focus on amazing cuisine. Its award-winning restaurant is the hotel’s prize possession, where beautifully plated dishes are paired with great local wines – devour four courses of seasonal delights and taste the delicious wines crafted by the lodge with grapes from local vineyards. 

Rooms are simple and comfortable, with some offering wonderful views of the Langeberg Mountains. Explore the historic town of Montagu at its museums or follow its hiking trails for some fresh air. In keeping with the lodge’s rustic ambience, an honesty bar is available for a strong drink or two and you can refresh yourself in the pool.
