The perfect getaway to relax and enjoy haute cuisine in a friendly atmosphere!I will definitely recommend Mimosa Lodge and be back myself.
From the beginning we were made welcome and the staff was very friendly. Our room was great and very comfortable. Dinner was out of this world. We certainly can recommend it!

The rooms were very comfortable, and the only fault that I would like them to address is the electric socket, which would not hold my hair curler in place. Although we did not have enough time in our schedule to enjoy the full facilities, we would not hesitate to recommend Mimo... see more
