Overall we had a great stay. We stayed in unit 22 2 thing that could be improved 1) There is a very bright outside light right next to the door that does not have a switch as it goes on automatically when it becomes dark outside. The door has frosted glass, and there was no door between the living room and the bed room. So the bedroom was not completely dark at night. It was a bit bothersome as I am sensitive to light, so I had to throw a blanker over the door to be able to sleep . 2) The french press is very small if you want to make coffee for 2 people Those were really the only 2 drawbacks. Apart from this, our stay was splendid!

Thanks so much for your review! We are so pleased that you enjoyed your time with us. We will look at fixing the lighting situation in the Mountain Suites. We are phasing out the small coffee plungers and are replacing them with larger ones:) We hope to welcome you back again to see the improvements for your anniversary! All the best, Lindsay

Service all around the property was always friendly and prompt. The chalet view and amenities was excellent and spotless. A very peaceful location and if you like walking an excellent place to go from easy walks to tough walks with guides. Food was always excellent especially the al a carte evening menus always different. The best was the peaceful atmosphere especially at night time. The least impressive was having to leave after 5 nights as well as no Guinness and no lemon flavoured Flying Fish alcoholic drinks, although they had some very good craft beer/ale bottles.

All round excellence. The accommodation was really good and very comfortable with fabulous views of the mountains. The room was well appointed and clean. The meals were superb and my wife's request for gluten free meals was dealt with amazingly, the chef is an absolute gem.

Montusi Mountain Lodge was great and we absolutely love the mountain biking in the whole area. All Out Adventures is really close by to hook up on the trails and the centre is a wonderful place for children of all ages. The food at the Lodge was delicious and we were made to feel very welcome at all times. The views of the mountains all around the lodge are beautiful.

We often go to The Cavern. This time we decided to stay at Montusi. What a wonderful surprise. Lovely setting. Great accommodation. They had very good rains and one can hardly describe the different colours of green. Views over the mountains one can keep on writing stories about. Great cappuccino. Had a good rest and visit. 2nd place of many happy returns.
