Booked for dinner and this experience was made even better when Richard Branson walked in and was dining!! Recently renovated to fall in line with a "Richard Branson" hotel. Food excellent, staff attentive (Peter has the best smile) and views to die for. Highly recommend!

The hotel is a really nice place and Richard Branson has kept its character and staff, we live in our house in the village of Franschhoek for 5months of the year and regularly take friends who visit to the restaurant to eat, but what a shock this visit, no Alfio playing the piano while you eat, Alfio had become a...

The hotel is freshly renovated with some stunning furnishings. The restaurant and outside area provide wonderful meals and views of the quaint village nestled in the franshoek valley. The wine tasting and country kitchen is also fresh and new, and located in the vineyard surrounded by the the mountains. Had a great tasting followed by a meal in the country... More

We stayed here for the first three nights of our vacation in South Africa, and for us it was near perfect. Nice and relaxing after the flight from the UK. We were met with complimentary drinks at our choice (six of us), on the patio. The food in the restaurant was superb, and the wine choice was good - the... More

We were disappointed not to be able to stay here during our time in Franschhoek as it only re-opened a month before our trip and we'd already booked elsewhere. So we decided to have lunch there instead, and do a wine tasting on their wonderful little patio with stunning views across the valley. It was by far the best wine... More

We spent two nights here at the start of our holiday to South Africa and were very impressed. We had a really nice room with its own patio which was private, a very comfortable bed and wonderful walk-in shower. We enjoyed two nice dinners, fabulous breakfasts and a nice wine-tasting at their vineyard. The staff were good and Sir Richard's... More

This has been recently refurbished and a good job done. The location is just outside Franschhoek, but walkable if you feel the need, the last bit being uphill... other modes of transport are available.. We were warmly welcomed by Peter (who was brilliant all through our stay, very knowledgeable and helpful) with a glass of wine whilst the bags were... More

We stayed here on our honeymoon and were amazed by the fantastic view, service and resort. We arrived and were immediately greated by the friendly staff, who helped resolve a problem with our hire car without any hassle for us. We were taken to the restaurant for lunch and wine tasting and had a lovely relaxing afternoon. We dined in... More

Stayed here 5 years ago all be it for one night and comparing with my 3 night stay in September what a difference! Rooms and public areas light, modern and much improved with the makeover. Although Mont Rochelle is a 15 minute walk from the the centre of Franschhoek I think it's location from a view perspective is excellent! Virgin... More
