Stop no. 2 on our honeymoon and I have to say it's one of nicest places I've stayed. I'm ashamed to say I knew nothing about Mont Rochelle before my arrival so it was a very nice surprise. Lovely setting and grounds, food was absolutely flawless (hats off o he chef!), great service as well. My wife is vegetarian and the staff were more than happy to cater for her needs, beats he usual odd look and a response of "we can do you risotto". Wine tasting was great and they also opened he cellar despite us arriving after the last tour had finished.
Breakfast was superb, the biggest selection I've seen. Hot breakfast from the menu was outstanding.
5 min drive to the town - which is lovely. If you visit the Winelands you must stay here!
