Augusta de Mist Country House
Staying at the Augusta de Mist Hotel.
The hotel is very centrally situated. The homestead and surroundings is built in the Cape Dutch style surrounded by a lovely garden.Renate the hostess was very hospitable, friendly and helpful. The staff I dealt with was friendly and their service very good. I enjoyed a quiet and restful 2 night's sleep,as well as a scrumptious breakfast and would certainly recommend the Augusta de Mist Hotel to other visitors.

Fantastic in all respects.
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Our hosts were fantastic, and the six-course dinner outstanding! Met some lovely guests that were also staying there - very homely stay. The birdlife in the gardens were tremendous. We'll be back, that's for sure.

Best Place EVER
This was the most heavenly place I have stayed in all my travels all over the world! When I die I hope if there is a heaven it will be the Princess and the Pea room at Augusta de Mist! And the dinner we had there was absolutely amazing - course after course of wonderful and creative food.

A home away from home. The owner and staff make you feel special, like you are the only guest that matters. The food was exquisite. The seven course tasting menu is a must try.Their chef cooks with passion and successfully put a divine, fresh and modern twist to traditional south African food. The cottage where we stayed was spacious, quaint and luxiourious. Could not have asked for more.
