“A tired hotel in a beautiful setting”
Reviewed 13 March 2014 via mobile

On a recent trip to Franschhoek we chose to stay at Mont Rochelle as we have experienced a few very nice stays there before. Unfortunately the hotel is 'tired' and in need of improvement in many ways. The gardens are neglected, the rooms and bathrooms are too well used and overall everything a bit shabby. This is not a five star establishment and I really wish it was! Management needs to lift it's game and money needs to be spent on a refurbishment .

“Lovely wines and a lovely tour”
Reviewed 17 December 2013

The tour given by the Mont Rochelle people is brief but very nice. The wines are also good. Especially the red ones.

“Great view”
Reviewed 13 November 2013 via mobile

We had some amazing Chardonnays at this winery.  They also do food which looked good - sadly we were too full to eat anything.  The view from the front of the winery is stubborn.  Worth visiting.

“Great setting, friendly staff”
Reviewed 10 July 2013

Came here for lunch! Loved this place for the way staff treat you! Cellar tour is OK, but the place is set amidst awesome surroundings and views... orchards, plantations, mountains! Stunning!

“Wine Tasting & Views”
Reviewed 3 May 2013

I only came here for the cellar tour and wine tasting! I recommend both! I love this place for a few reasons - one, it's the first black-owned winery in South Africa. (Granted, it was first owned by black Congolese, not South African man, but still.) Second, the views are absolutely amazing... you can see the orchards and the mountains! Stunning! Third, I love that they have the cellar tour and wine tasting. Yes, all of this can be a bit contrived but it's interesting just the same. It's worth looking if you're unfamiliar.
