The Lodge is a delightful retreat with an enviable reputation for personal attention, hospitality and service with 22 double rooms for both overnight guests and those who would like to enjoy the tranquillity of a longer stay. Rooms have the following facilities: ceiling fans or aircons, heaters and hair dryers, complimentary Muscadel – a specialty of the area – mineral water and fresh fruit and flowers.
Guests can enjoy a refreshing swim or a game of croquet; or relax in one of the stylish art deco lounges. Dining is a truly remarkable experience at Mimosa and the multiple award-winning restaurant is renowned for its superb cuisine. Run by owner-chef Bernhard Hess, the emphasis is on local fresh seasonal produce and most of the vegetables and herbs used in the kitchen are grown in Mimosa’s own extensive garden.
Mimosa’s fine boutique wines are handcrafted by Bernhard and boutique winemaker Lourens van der Westhuizen. At the foothills of the majestic Langeberg Mountains, the gateway to the arid Karoo, they create a fitting tribute to this collection, comprising a Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and a heady Shiraz. Mimosa Wines are raking in the awards, winning four stars in the John Platter for both the Chardonnay 2009 and Shiraz 2008. The Chardonnay received a review of 3½ in Wine Magazine.
