Everything was perfect - the rooms, service, food! Nothing was too much to ask. staff were so helpful and kind. even though the lodge was full it never felt like there were a lot of people around at all. Location is excellent. We will definitely be back!

Montusi is a beautiful, family run lodge that I cannot recommend enough. Beautiful cabins, nicely spaced out, each with a cosy fire. A central restaurant and bar area. And wonderful owner-lead service from Lindsay and her crew. Thank you and we will be back. :)

My wife and I had another wonderful 3 nights at Montusi Mountain Lodge. Food, accommodation and staff were excellent once again. Even the bass in the dam played their part this time. Lovely day hikes too.

I spent the weekend at Montusi, having heard very little about it prior to this stay. The location is amazing, with spectacular views of the Amphitheater. It’s a family-run resort and they take great care in welcoming you and seeing to your every need. There also lots of activities in the area, including mountain biking, which was my reason for being there. This is proper mountain biking, virtually all single track, with routes taking in some incredible scenery.
