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

A gorgeous drive to Franschhoek from Cape Town , very easy with with breathtaking scenery . A beautifully attractive but understated hotel awaited us, immaculate but as one would expect as it's only been owned by Ricard Branson since June I believe, a superb refurbishment, Very stylish decor with some wonderful design flair. We ate in the restaurant, attentive staff... More

Stayed here for 3 nights on our honeymoon. The hotel was only open for only 2 weeks with the country kitchen not open while we stayed however this didn't let the hotel down too much. We stayed in a Merlot Room which was small but not cramped by any means. The hotel did feel "empty" but due to the fact... More

Mont Rochelle is without doubt a stunning place, its location in the rolling hills of Franschhoek and overlooking the town quite breathtaking. The hotel itself contained all the mod cons, nice outdoor pool (freezing cold but so invigorating especially with the view), rooms more than adequate and food of very good quality although we only ate breakfast there - there's...

By the time this review appears Mont Rochelle will be closed for three months until August for refurbishment after it was recently acquired by Sir Richard Branson's luxury hotel collection. We must have been one of the last guests to to say there but there was no slippage in standards. Very comfortable room, excellent staff and very friendly service. Delicious... More

Ever stayed anywhere a second time and been rather disappointed by the experience? Well, that didn't happen to us at Mont Rochelle. If anything, the 2nd visit was better than the first, but then we did treat ourselves to a Cabernet room, rather than staying in a Shiraz room, as we did on the first occasion. The food at the...

How would you like to spend two nights in a hotel suite which is beautifully appointed and is surrounded by mountains and vineyards? Oh go on then force me. Mont Rochelle's photos do not do it justice at all. Really friendly people who went that extra yard to ensure your enjoyment, a wine tasting and a picnic opportunity could not... More
