Mont Rochelle is Sir Richard Branson's stunning hotel and vineyard just under an hour's drive from Cape Town in the town of Franschhoek in South Africa. Situated in an area internationally renowned for its winelands and stunning scenery, Mont Rochelle boasts a unique hilltop setting with views over the Klein Dassenberg mountain range and private vineyard encompassing 39 hectares. The hotel comprises of 26 rooms and suites including a stunning Manor House; a private four-bedroom villa available for exclusive use year-round. There are five room types and all rooms can be made up with twin beds on request. Children are very welcome to stay at Mont Rochelle year-round and some rooms can accommodate children on single beds. There are two restaurants at Mont Rochelle: Miko and the Country Kitchen. Miko is the main restaurant and is the setting for some fantastic gourmet meals including those for special occasions. Adjacent to the winery is the Country Kitchen, an ideal spot for a light lunch or a take-away picnic. All our room rates include breakfast which is served in Miko. Both restaurants are open for non-resident guests but we do recommend you call in advance to book a table. At Mont Rochelle wine tasting isn’t just a special event – it’s an everyday occurrence. Both hotel guests and day visitors can enjoy wine tastings in a variety of locations and our Mont Rochelle wines are available to purchase. When you're not enjoying the wine, why not take a dip in the main outdoor heated swimming pool or relax at the Mont Rochelle Spa with a spa treatment or Hammam. We use the eco-friendly Africology ‘Authentic’ range of spa products which are made from 100% essential oils using natural plant extracts.

Mont Rochelle is indescribably perfect! The service is top notch, the scenery in gorgeous, the spa is amazing, the rooms are spacious and comfortable, and the overall experience is unmatched. My husband and I stayed for two nights on our honeymoon and we are so sad that we couldn’t stay longer. If we ever get the chance to make it back to South Africa, we will never stay anywhere other than Mont Rochelle. What a special place that you must stay if you are in the area.

A magical stay in this amazing hotel. Couldn't recommend it more to honeymooners (or just in general). We started our honeymoon in Cape Town and stopped off in Franschhoek at Mont Rochelle for 2 nights before doing the garden route. It was the best decision! And it was the best welcome we've ever had (thank you lovely Peter) and the whole experience was luxury from start to finish. We had the lovely complimentary wine tasting at the beautiful kitchen cafe. We had lunch there too which was delicious. Breakfast is great in Miko and we did the tasting menu in Miko for dinner one evening which was fantastic. The staff kindly take you into town in the complimentary shuttle and we did this one night, eating out at Allora, a lovely Italian. The room was a beautiful, we had a merlot room. There's also a complimentary mini bar with more fantastic wine! There's also the beautiful pool area and many gorgeous places within the hotel grounds. Lovely bar too. The customer service was such a high level, better than I've ever experienced. Thank you Peter, Charles, Fabian, Arnold, Sampson, Jason and all of the staff for making our stay truly memorable.

Fabulous vacation, everything was perfect. The food, service, amenities were all top notch. They catered to all our needs, we especially enjoyed the wine tasting. The town is very quaint, the staff drove us and picked us up.

Amazing luxury hotel set in the middle of a vineyard. The location, staff, food service and hotel itself were of an incredibly high standard and we had an amazing time. The breakfast was exceptional and the staff edge on hand to run shuttles to the local areas.

Mont Rochelle is a splendid property with stunning views of vineyards and mountains. We were welcomed with warmth and competence; check-in was completed in the relaxed environs of the bar. Service all-round was cheerful. We were a little disappointed in the dinner at Miko, though the breakfasts there were excellent. Dinner was presented as 'fine dining', yet table settings did not refelect this. Plastic table mats and casual service did not convey 'fine dining'; food was good but not extraordinary. Views are gorgeous. The lawn is beautifully set up with various games (croquet, etc.) and the pool area looked lovely.

Mount Rochelle was one of the best places we’ve stayed! The staff were so helpful and friendly doing absolutely everything to make us feel welcome. On arrival the women welcoming us booked us into La Petite Colombe for our tasting course which we’d definitely recommend. Cannot recommend Mont Rochelle enough the whole team were amazing and always making sure we were happy. The tennis courts were also beautiful!

An absolutely incredible hotel. The Beauty and location of Mont Rochelle aside, the hospitality in this hotel is like nothing we have ever experienced. The standards each of the staff are trained to, surpass any we have experienced before. They are knowledgeable, friendly, engaging and really nothing is too much trouble. The rooms are beautifully decorated and exceptionally comfortable. I am very much looking forward to our next trip!
