Stunning location, wonderful staff

We stayed here for two nights but wished it had been longer. The reception we received made us feel really special; glasses of sparkling wine, a leisurely check in whilst admiring the views and "awesome" Peter to make us feel at home. The room was nice, but there were a few little niggles - the bathroom had no shaver point and there was nowhere to plug in the hair dryer by a mirror. We also found that the towels and dressing gowns were hard (rather than fluffy). These types of niggle surprised us given the luxury and cost associated with this hotel. We loved the fact that the mini bar was complimentary (even though we didn't really use it), the wine tasting (Gilbert was fantastic), the picnic in the grounds and the canapes and drinks before dinner (only on one night). Added to this there is a complimentary shuttle in and out of Franschhoek. The staff were all fantastic; friendly and efficient. Breakfast was a little bit sparse (compared to other continental breakfasts we experienced on our travels) but the cooked breakfast was good. We will definitely return.

Beautiful views! We visited this farm on the Franschoek wine tram service. We had a wine pairing with tapas. It was the best snoek pate' we have ever tasted! All the tapas was tasty and the service was good. we ordered wine from them and received it in Johannesburg in less than a week later!

High class with fabulous views

We stayed at Mont Rochelle for 3 nights as part of our trip to South Africa to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. Initially I was worried that it would be a little too far out on the town of Franschhoek, but I had needn't have worried because you are greeted by such fabulous views.
It was a lovely welcome with glasses of champagne and we were allowed to relax for as long as we wanted on arrival. Our room (Merlot) was lovely and clean, nice decor and good sized bathroom. A complimentary mini bar was a nice touch.
We spent an hour by the lovely pool within the beautiful gardens and changed to eat dinner at the hotel restaurant Miko. The food was excellent, shame the atmosphere was rather quiet, but the chef came out to meet all the guests. Breakfast was a very substantial affair with a varied selection of both cooked and cold options, really nicely presented.
The staff are very professional and courteous and we enjoyed a complimentary canape and drinks evening meeting some of the staff.
As a guest you receive a complimentary wine tasting at their other restaurant, the country kitchen, a few minutes away. We enjoyed a substantial picnic, beautifully presented by the small lake.
We made use of the complimentary shuttle service into the town both daytime and evening which was very useful if you want to try one of the many excellent restaurants in Franschhoek.
Overall it was a lovely stay and we would recommend Mont Rochelle for the excellent service and beautiful views.
