We could fault nothing with our stay. The welcome was very warm and inviting. On arrival we received a glass of wine from the friendly team. The establishment is beautiful with the most stunning views of Franschhoek. The rooms are beautiful and exquisitely furnished. The toiletries provided were amazing and the complementary mini bar was truly the cherry on top...

This is hands down the best hotel I have ever stayed in. I wish I lived closer so I could go back. We were so impressed with our room, the staff, the grounds, the food, the wine, the location, the mini-bar, the spa... our entire stay was completely faultless. We went on honeymoon in May and it was absolutely fabulous....

We stayed in suite 31 and loved it. Many windows overlooking the vineyards and two balconies! The staff was genuinely warm. Dinner at the restaurant with the fireplace blazing was wonderful as were the breakfasts watching the sun rise over the hills.

We revelled our weekend stay - it was a treat! The hotel is located a stone's throw from Franschhoek Main Road. That said, we found it's setting among the vines quiet enough to hear a pin drop. Our mountain facing 'Cabernet room' was pristine and the faulty air conditioning was rectified promptly. The Spa is an elegant, refreshing experience with...

The specialness of Mont Rochelle starts with the welcome when one arrives. I always feel like I am coming home here! I stayed in a Merlot room and it was large (with a couch and table) and had a lovely balcony with views overlooking the garden and distant mountains. The rooms are magnificently comfortable with a huge bath and shower,...

Spent three fantastic nights in Mont Rochelle. We couldn't have asked for better service or location for our first trip to South Africa. There is a relaxed feel to the hotel, coupled with a 5 star service and surroundings. Would recommend wine tasting by horseback and the Country Kitchen picnic, both were very enjoyable.
