“Fabulous setting and views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 November 2012 via mobile

This hotel was one of the highlights of our latest trip to South Africa. The attention to detail and helpfulness was second to none. It was my husbands birthday the day before we left and I bought some wine from the vineyard and a very nice Mont Rochelle polo shirt which they kindly wrapped for me in a very posh bag and raffia and looked great. The only downside was that the wine was confiscated at the airport, I had totally forgotten that you cannot take liquid through security. Anyway the thought was there! We had a beautiful room with fabulous views of the mountains and gardens around the hotel. Superb staff throughout and so happy and smiley all the time. We ate at Mange Tout the first night which was excellent with a few surprises along the way which I won't divulge as it would spoil a surprise for future guests! The other two nights we ate at Country Kitchen where they specialise in Italian cooking the decor is Tuscan and very stylish. The trip around the wine making tour and tasting afterwards was an added bonus all included in our stay at Mont Rochelle. We will certainly be staying here again in the not too distant future.

“Great views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 September 2012

Permits for Mont Rochelle are easily available in the town, and come with a helpful map of the walks, which cater for all levels of fitness. The views are well worth the walking!

“Sunday afternoon picnic”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 September 2012

If you are looking for a scenic spot for a picnic, this is ideal. You are surrounded by the mountains and sitting between the vinyards. I would suggest you book even though the website advises that for the normal basket, no bookings are required. It is not a cheap outing, the 2 picnic baskets(2 people per basket) was almost R600 which excluded any wine or coldrinks you wanted. The amount of food was also a bit dissapointing and did not come with condements like salt and pepper but the quality of the food was really good. I have been to a few picnic spots in the winelands but unfortunately this was not as good as Solms Delta and Alle Bleue.

“A romantic restaurant.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2012

Set on the hillside over looking Franschhoek. This was a memorable & romantic setting for me. The food is great, service is very good, but the view is to die for..
