I have travelled extensively and globally staying in many luxury hotels via work but this is the must exceptional place I have visited.

We were barely here for 10 hours (afternoon arrival and 6 am flight from CPT) but it truly is a beautiful place! We loved our room with the patio and hanging chair (so fun!). The pool is lovely too and the lawn games are a fun way to kill time before dinner. Since our flight was out of Cape Town...

Red, white and Rose. The food is first class. There is a vehicle which will take and pick you up from anywhere in town...

Rarely have I been to a more integrated and well orchestrated venue as mont Rochelle. The staff are so friendly, and a little magic happens in the...

Stayed here years ago before Virgin's acquisition and thankfully it's transformed. The rooms have been refurbished and are clean and modern. We had a Pinotage Suite (#29) which despite being a 'designer' masterpiece had no drawers whatsoever and a bathroom and toilet which lacked privacy - glass doors are obviously the current fashion. The public areas such as the bar...
