Reviews from Mimosa Lodge
“We had a perfect stay at the Mimosa Lodge. A very warm welcome from Bernie Wiese and the owner Family Hess. The traditional Dinner with the different Mimosa wines is outstanding. The price for it very fair! The visit should be a must!” wrote koppc2017 on their TripAdvisor page.
Jennifer W added; “Stayed one night at this charming boutique hotel, in a very large, comfortable room with vaulted ceilings, king size bed, large bathroom with separate tub and shower, and A/C. The hotel is centrally located within walking distance of shops/restaurants. The garden is lush and has a nice pool available 24/7. Pool towels are provided. A nice English breakfast was included. 4-course dinner and wine pairing can be added on for an extra price, although we elected to walk the small town and eat at a restaurant.”
“Beautifully-aged bed and breakfast in Montagu. Spacious rooms with good value for money. And we had a fantastic evening with a delicious 3-course dinner (including different wines matching the food). And a great surprise with a great ‘Swiss after-dinner party’! Thanks Bernhard and your team!” said BigRedOne75.
