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

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

Spent ten nights in the 'Cap Classique' suite with own plunge pool. We had an absolutely perfect stay. The suite was superb and with the very hot weather the afternoon dip in the plunge pool was a must. The location amongst the vines with superb views across the Franschhoek valley to the distant mountains was unbelievable. Excellent daily breakfast and... More

Mixed feelings about our stay at Mont Rochelle. The setting is stunning and the room was nice with an incredible view from the balcony, but it feels a little corporate and bland. The service is very variable – we really struggled with hotel cars we had booked not arriving on a number of occasions. Also beware of the offer of... More

After the bustle of cape Town, we spent three nights here. We had stayed here a couple of years ago and enjoyed it so much that we decided to treat ourselves to the suite with it's own pool. The decor has been modernised post Branson and it works well. The suite was amazing with a separate lounge/dining area, large bedroom... More

We stayed here for 5 nights having stayed a few years ago under the previous ownership. We noticed a few minor changes , mainly to do with decoration, all good. But basically it's pretty much unchanged, just de-chinzed and more modern design. Many of the former staff remain but now with an overlay of European "hosts" which we found a... More
