Looking for a really special place to dine, then is a stunning option. The staff is very well trained, not snooty. If you appreciate a beautifully decorated environment, this restaurant will stimulate your creative side. The modern and friendly colours boast style. Fine dining is what you will find on your plate. I had line fish and an interesting take... More

This place screams quality, from the second we walked into reception we were treated like royalty. The setting inthe middle of the vineyard is sublime. If this is the average quality of Richard Bransons hotel business I will certainly be looking to stay at others. One very nice touch was a free mini bar, which I think most people would... More

We stayed here for four nights at the start of our South African holiday and it was the best of all the places we stayed in. We had stayed here a few years ago, so we really noticed the changes, which we thought were all for the better. We had a lovely suite with it's own small plunge pool and... More

During our recent stay in SA we went to check the place out before ,maybe, returning an other day for dinner.....Upon arrival the receptionist couldn't give 2 hoot when we asked directions to the bar, which left us a bit puzzled. We sat outside on the terrace, the setting is beautiful and the views unparalleled. However the "inside" the decor... More

What a scenic setting! Mont Rochelle is a wonderful place to stay to enjoy all Franschhoek has to offer. The food and wind were very nice, although the service was a bit slow in the restaurants. Great breakfast included! The hotel staff was exceptionally kind and helpful throughout our stay, frequently going above and beyond. Very relaxing trip!

My wife and I had stayed at the Mon Rochelle in January 2012 and whilst enjoying it did conclude that it was a little tired. We revisited it again as part of our South African holiday in late January 2015. It has in the recent past been acquired by Sir Richard Branson who has updated certain parts of the hotel.... More

We had a wonderful 2-night stay at Mont Rochelle. We were in a Cap Classique Suite with a private plunge pool and a breath-taking view of the valley and surrounding hills. The room was beautiful and very comfortable, and the plunge pool was good sized. The food (both breakfast and dinner at Miko) was very good, and delicious local wines... More

Our trip to SA started off with a wedding at the Mosaic Sanctuary, and ending with three nights at Ulusaba. We had no idea how to spend the time in between, until it was suggested to us by the wonderful people at Virgin Limited. Frankshoek is absolutely stunning, and our stay at Mont Rochelle was memorable. We had a Shiraz... More
