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

Mont Rochelle is set in the most idyllic location. The views and surroundings breathtaking. Service at the hotel was good but sometimes could be kept waiting at front desk. Other reviews have mentioned outstanding snagging we also found this to be the case but only minor issues that could not spoil your enjoyment. During our stay Jon Brown Managing Director... More

We booked this hotel bij booking.com but it went all awry. Fortunately the staff helped us to sort out the problem and gave us even an upgrate. So we spend a nice afternoon in a beautifully decorated room with a beautiful view over the valley. Only minor point was the sewery smell in the bathroom. The swimming pool looked inviting... More

Spent 3 days here while exploring through the wine district. It really is a gorgeous hotel - in a stunning location. We stayed in a Shiraz room and it was very nice. Large bed, lovely décor, clean and comfortable. There were only two things that we would like to see improved in the rooms and one is the bathroom door.... More

We arrived very late due to a BA operational decision that made us miss our flight to Cape Town, but we had a fabulous warm welcome and a plate of meat and cheeses that was very welcome. The room was stunning with a wonderful view, but agree with the previous view that there are a few snagging details that need... More

A work in progress my partner and I decided when we stayed here as part of our SA trip. Has Sir Richard Branson ever visited one reviewer asks, and we say the same!

Bowled over from the minute we arrived flustered and hot. Cases taken wine in hand, relax. Beautiful location and fabrics etc, somewhat eccentric lighting combos. Why do you need to light the bed when you go to the loo??? Free mini bar a stroke of genius, costs so little but makes such a difference. Some inconsistency in what was promised... More

We have stayed at Mont Rochelle twice before and have always loved the location with views across the valley which are beautiful. Last time we visited 3 years ago we felt that lovely though the hotel was it was lacking some love and attention. Visiting now following a full refurbishment the hotel is stunning and has a great 'vibe'. The... More

We stayed here so that we could do a day of wine tasting . The hotel was quiet as it had only just reopened following a major refurbishment. The hotel has been beautifully decorated in a contemporary design with a quirky twist . The staff were very courteous, friendly and efficient. We ate in the restaurant which has wonderful panoramic... More
