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

We arrived at 9am, tired after a night flight and was welcomed with an upgrade and immediate occupancy, We were also invited into breakfast which has the most amazing choice. Nothing better than a glass of bubbly to start the day. The hotel is situated a pleasant 10 minute stroll behind the village but in a lovely peaceful location. The... More

What a wonderful place! We were met with a glass of delicious wine, however on being taken to our room we went down several flights of stairs and wondered where we were going but soon found out, we were shown to a room with a superb view over Franschhoek, amazing!

We had a long weekend here and I don't think I've enjoyed one so much for a long time. The whole ambience of the place lends itself to relaxing, chilling out and eating and drinking well! My husband has mobility problems and although he can get around slowly, he has to use crutches. We were very kindly given an upgrade... More

We arrived at the Mont Rochelle at about 8pm. Having driven from Cape Town, we were a little late after we decided to take a detour to see the penguins and then got a little lost. Although the hotel restaurant was closed on the night we arrived, the staff ensured that we were able to book in for dinner at... More

From being greeted with a glass of chilled white wine onwards this hotel provided a first rate service. The room and hotels public areas were lovely. There are fantasic views over the valley. breakfast was very good but unfortunately the hotel restaurant was closed on the days we were there (we did eat at their bistro). The staff were friendly...

The hotel driver, Abe picked us up in the Q7 and was very friendly and chatty. On arrival it looked a bit formal but was actually very relaxed and enjoyable. Alfio, the resident pianist played every possible tune going, even, Blayden Races, a Geordie tune that some will know. But to hear that in this fine restaurant was funny and... More

From the moment we arrived outside the hotel the service was impeccable, we had our bags whisked away to our room & were seated on the terrace in comfy chairs overlooking the breathtaking views with a glass of bubbly. We were asked to complete some basic details but they didn't expect anything else not even a credit card for incidentals!... More

We stayed here over the New Year period and whilst the hotel has a fabulous position overlooking the winelands, I have to say this was probably the least enjoyable hotel of our trip. The meal we had on New Year's eve was disappointing, especially as we had enjoyed some fabulous food during our stay in South Africa. The staff were... More
