We had two nights in a beautiful and huge luxury suite which stretched beneath the eves of Mont Rochelle's wonderful main building. My wife was a little under the weather - a bug she'd brought with her I should stress - and the hotel could not have been more accommodating, bringing a special off-menu meal to the room for me...

Came for a tasting and stayed for a stunning meal in the Country Kitchen. Although the food was of a very high qulity the setting was informal and comfortable. The hotel and restaurant look very grand but we did not stay. very much enjoyed the wine and the steak was one of the best I have had.

We had lunch in December at the Country Kitchen. I found the menu very "friendly" with refreshing options that I have not seen on other menu's. I also enjoyed the "user friendly" options available to combine different dishes and create a meal with various side orders. The service was friendly and attentive, not overbearing. Malva poeding that is actually the... More

Came on the wine tram for wine tasting but stopped for lunch. Brilliant value for three whites, three reds and four small plates for lunch. Can recommend the potted shrimps and rabbit terrine in particular. All six wines were great.

This hotel is magnificent. The eggs benedict I had for breakfast was the best that I have ever eaten. The rooms are very spacious and comfortable. The products in the bathroom were fabulous. The element of surprise was the fully stocked bar with mamongst other beverages ,two bottles of Richard Branson's excellent wine...which was complimentary

The wow factor is largely in the location. It's amazing with 180 degree valley and mountain views. Nice, comfortable rooms, well serviced, with some good touches (excellent bath and shower stuff). Beautiful tennis court and good pool. Furniture and decor are modern chic. Breakfast excellent, but dinner disappointing (apparently the restaurant has had a succession of chefs) given the gastronomic... More

My family and I only spent 2 nights at Mont Rochelle and, given the choice, we would all have stayed indefinitely! We each had a Cabernet room. Built into the hill, these rooms were beautifully decorated, spacious and filled with every desired amenity, including a fully-stocked complementary mini bar. The bathrooms were nearly as big as the bedrooms and stunningly... More
