“A true 5* star experience”
Reviewed January 24, 2011

Second time we've stayed and even better than the first. Service from the moment you arrive until the bell boy loads your cases into the car is wonderful. Nothing is too much trouble. Food in both restaurants is excellent, the setting is tranquil, the view jaw dropping. Do try and do the cellar tour (it has got historic value and the wine is excellent!) and both Mange Tout and the country kitchen. We're just about to re-book for 2012!

We stayed here for 2 nights and we were completely taken aback as soon as we walked through the doors. We were greeted immediately by the friendly staff, offered a glass of excellent wine, and made to feel completely welcome and at home. Our suite was just perfect and the views were breathtaking from both our balconies. The breakfasts were sublime, there was everthing there to choose from and all kept fresh, the hot being cooked to order. We went on a wine tasting trip on horseback so we were able to take advantage of the beautiful and stunning surroundings which were picture perfect. Nothing was too much trouble for the friendly staff to them everything was a pleasure to help us out and make our stay memorable. We would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for something special and if we ever go back to the area we wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.

We stayed here for 2 nights at the end of Sept 2010.

The hotel is tucked away from the centre of Franschhoek surrounded by it's own vineyard. A beautiful location overlooking the mountains. The grounds and hotel were beautifully maintained.

We were greeted warmly by all of the reception staff and offered a complimentry glass of house wine while completing the registartion process.

We were shown to our room, Room 32, which was beautifully appointed and had a really great bathroom. The only small gripe, was that the view was restricted as we were in a room built into the eaves- but the room itself was lovely (and we could see a partial view over the mountains)

The food in the main restaurant was amazing - really good quality. The house wines (all produced by it's own vineyards) were very good. We also ate at the Country Kitchen (over by the vineyard and wine tasting rooms) and again, good quality food.

We really enjoyed our stay here

We throughly enjoyed our stay here. The hotel is in a beautiful setting, but still close to the town (about a 10-15 minute scenic walk) Great food and lovely outdoor dining for dinner. Spacious rooms, beautifully decorated with friendly staff. Perhaps slightly over-priced. Would definitely recommend...........

Staff in Mont Rochelle were very friendly and helpful. We were met at our car and brought into a the lounge to a lovely wood burning fire. Our room was lovely and spacious but we did find a good few ants in the room. Food was lovely and manager organised an excellent tour of 3 vineyards. We would go back to this hotel.
