We took the first week of our honeymoon here and what can we say - it was absolutely amazing! From the very second we walked in (late at night around 11pm) and still finding a welcome platter of food in our room as it was too late for the restaurant yet the staff were worried we might be hungry after our trip - to the moment we left our newfound friends and family - we were utterly delighted. Nothing and I mean NOTHING was too much trouble for anyone and we had the most special time of our lives. The room (Cabernet room) was large, airy, modern and had a great bathroom area and one of the most comfortable beds to sleep in. The outside area with it's seating and grassed area gave a sense of space and the views - the views of the surrounding hills with clouds billowing down them is one of the most romantic things to wake up to. Breakfast in the patio area, with resident house cat Miss Blom was a great and tasty start to the day (and of course, save water - drink wine!) and activities can be arranged, from horse riding to trekking, time in the local town of Franschoeck (which is full of art galleries and the like). Peter, who we nicknamed Captain Energy and is one of the nicest people we've ever met, can arrange anything for you. The spa is a great place to relax and the ladies there worked so well on fixing up all the day-to-day aches we'd accumulated before our honeymoon and the inclusion of a hammam is a nice touch - go spend a day being pampered. On the other side of the building is a swimming pool, a croquet lawn, a gym, an outdoor chess set and a lovely snug bar with an open fire where relaxing is a breeze (and where the other house cat, a big old boy called Ash is the "manager" of the hotel - with apologies to James the real manager who is a gentleman and an asset to the hotel). There is a lounge room in the accomodation building where if the weather is a little cooler there's plenty of family games, or just take one of the portable Bluetooth speakers from your room and play some chess and take in the views. Oh and bring the wine from your minibar, which is all included - as usual in the Virgin Limited Edition group you're treated like an adult with no hidden charges. Just a 5 min walk down the hill is the Manor House with all of it's history and the Country Kitchen where you can get lunch or dinner in a more informal location than the main Miko restaurant at the hotel - either way you're looked after with amazing food and wine regardless of location. From the Country Kitchen you can get a picnic basket and go hang out beside a lake watching the breeze gently blow through the vineyard below you. As we left we were in tears, that gives you an indication of just how much we'd grown to love Mont Rochelle and the team here. Make time to get to this place and you'll feel the same. We'll be back just as soon as we can.

This is the second time we have stayed at Mont Rochelle and it is such a special hotel! The sensational setting, the attention to detail, the friendly and attentive staff, the glorious rooms with all the little extras that make your stay super what makes this a truly outstanding experience. From the time you arrive when you are offered a glass of bubbly and a glorious hot handtowel, to the room stay with indulgent Africology products in your bathroom, home-made biscuits, wine, fruit and a complimentary mini-bar, to the cosy and homely bar area, wonderful walks around the estate, delicious wine-tasting and fantastic lunch at Country Kitchen, courtesy shuttle to dinner and back, turn-down service with gowns, slippers, water and chocolates on your pillow, delectable champagne breakfast and finally friendly don't get much better than this. It is all in the detail and Mont Rochelle do this beautifully - every personal touch and special treat and quality accessory (Nespresso coffee, salon quality hair-dryers, Egyptian cotton and more) is what makes this experience as special as it is - please don't change a thing! It is home away from home which no other hotel I have stayed in has gotten right - usually there is always something lacking... Our only small hiccup when checking out was being charged for someone elses lunch at Miko however when we pointed this out it was quickly rectified. Mont Rochelle has a special place in our hearts as we have now celebrated two anniversaries there and we simply can't wait to return.

of R & R following 12 nights of safari travel. The kindest of staff, great food and the most sensational location for mountains, hiking and wine. Every bit as wonderful as Branson's Kasbah Tamadot in Morocco -- and a real discovery for us.

My Husband and I stayed in Mont Rochelle as part of our Honeymoon trip. Throughout this trip we stayed in fantastic hotels but Mont Rochelle is by far miles ahead of the rest. From start to finish we were treated so well including drinks on arrival hot towels were we were then shown to our room with just spectacular views of the mountains. The room was beautiful, immaculate and a free mini bar was a lovely touch it was nice to have no hidden extras at the end of our stay. The nighttime touches with robes and water was lovely. The staff were the friendliest and most professional we had dealt with. The food and breakfast was outstanding. This hotel is worth every penny and we can't wait to get back!! Thank you again Elaine and Michael

My wife and I spent a day and night at this cozy and lovely place, as a treat they surprised us with a bottle of wine, champagne and few other things in celebration of our honey moon. Much appreciated. Franschhoeck is a piece of land that I would love to live, quite, calm and full of good things to do. We must say that we have had a great time there!!!!
