Montagu accommodation
Mimosa Lodge in Montagu received a Best Value Destination Award from Afristay.com.

We recently escaped the city and set off to the Robertson Wine Valley for the Slow Food and Wine Festival. “The Slow”, is unlike any other wine festival, as it provides an opportunity to explore the Winelands more intimately. As the name suggests, the pace is slow.

Robertson Wine Valley Rietvallei

The Robertson Wine Valley (RWV) is approximately 2½ hour drive from Cape Town. It includes Robertson, Montagu, Bonnievale, McGregor and Ashton wine regions. Robertson Wine Valley is the perfect escape if you would like to leave the hustle and bustle of the city behind you. The pace is slow, the people friendly, and the wine plentiful – in essence, the perfect recipe for a weekend away.

Taking a two-minute shower, flushing only when necessary, and reusing towels and linen may be an inconvenience, especially when travelling, but the alternative of no water at all is something that the Western Cape community is working very hard at to avoid. While Montagu has not been as hard-hit by the drought as the city of Cape Town, the Route 62 town also has water restrictions and residents and travellers alike have been called upon to make all necessary efforts in order to preserve this precious commodity.

“We have implemented a number of water-saving measures at Mimosa Lodge to ensure that our guests still enjoy their holiday while being water-wise at the same time,” says Fida Hess, proprietor of Mimosa Lodge in Montagu.

logoIn celebrating over a decade of awarding service excellence, the World Luxury Hotel Awards warmly welcomed its guests on 2 December to the 2017 grand gala ceremony at one of the top ski destinations in the world. St. Moritz, Switzerland. A luxury alpine resort town in Switzerland’s Engadin valley is renowned for its winter season charm and its style, elegance and class.

Setting the basis for service industry standards around the globe, the World Luxury Hotel Awards provides true recognition to luxury hotels and resorts in their relevant categories during its annual voting phase. Over 300,000 votes were tallied this year from travelers and guests of these luxury establishments during the voting phase. Properties from over 120 countries competed in the 2017 awards and it is truly a honor to be one of the selected nominees and winners.

We are Honored to announce that the Mimosa Lodge Has won:
 
Country Winner in the following category: Luxury Country House & Luxury Gourmet Hotel
And
Regional Winner in the following Category: Luxury Small Hotel

A property for which words can rarely describe its splendor. This opulent hotel is well deserving of this accolade and represents everything that the World Luxury Hotel Awards stands for. Congratulations to the General Manager, Fida Hess and her entire Team for this wonderful achievement.

Follow the road through a short tunnel in the rock and you’ll find yourself in the historic little town of Montagu – not technically part of the Robertson Wine Valley, but close enough and quaint enough to warrant a visit. Mimosa Lodge has been around since 1985, and for the past 13 years Bernard and Fida Hess have built up a reputation for tasty old-style, bistro food. Think scallops with home-made sweet chilli sauce, perfectly seared steak, or ostrich fillet with pommes fondant and muscat-and-thyme jus. Tuck into a three-course menu for R320 (R620 with wine pairing). Mimosa also produces its own wines, which you’ll soon be able to taste at a dedicated tasting facility with an attached day-time restaurant.
