2023 Travellers' Choice Best of the Best
Mont Rochelle is Sir Richard Branson's stunning hotel and vineyard just under an hour's drive from Cape Town in the town of Franschhoek in South Africa. Situated in an area internationally renowned for its winelands and stunning scenery, Mont Rochelle boasts a unique hilltop setting with views over the Klein Dassenberg mountain range and private vineyard encompassing 39 hectares. The hotel comprises of 26 rooms and suites including a stunning Manor House; a private four-bedroom villa available for exclusive use year-round. There are five room types and all rooms can be made up with twin beds on request. Children are very welcome to stay at Mont Rochelle year-round and some rooms can accommodate children on single beds. There are two restaurants at Mont Rochelle: Miko and the Country Kitchen. Miko is the main restaurant and is the setting for some fantastic gourmet meals including those for special occasions. Adjacent to the winery is the Country Kitchen, an ideal spot for a light lunch or a take-away picnic. All our room rates include breakfast which is served in Miko. Both restaurants are open for non-resident guests but we do recommend you call in advance to book a table. At Mont Rochelle wine tasting isn’t just a special event – it’s an everyday occurrence. Both hotel guests and day visitors can enjoy wine tastings in a variety of locations and our Mont Rochelle wines are available to purchase. When you're not enjoying the wine, why not take a dip in the main outdoor heated swimming pool or relax at the Mont Rochelle Spa with a spa treatment or Hammam. We use the eco-friendly Africology ‘Authentic’ range of spa products which are made from 100% essential oils using natural plant extracts.

I mean. Where do I even begin. WOW! The staff, are beyond helpful, beyond cheerful and just made our trip such a pleasant experience. The hotel, stunning. The grounds are beautifully maintained, the rooms are such a good size with everything you need! Lawn games available, the pool was heated and a lovely temperature and the bus which will take you to where you want to go and pick you up. We stayed in room 17, and the view out from our balcony was breathtaking. Every room has such a beautiful view. Again the staff, AMAZING. The complimentary wine tasting at the Country Kitchen was a lovely touch. Really made our honeymoon special with some extra touches. Thank you Mont Rochelle for a beautiful stay.

Attention to detail , comfort and exemplary service . Beautiful laidback style but if you needed anything they appeared as if by magic ! The icing on the cake was the free shuttle bus up and down to the town which proved invaluable for offsite dinners including late pickups .

Understated luxury, very relaxing atmosphere. Beautiful and comfortable rooms, although some drawers would be useful. Gorgeous environment, on the outskirts of Franschoek with easy access on foot or complimentary shuttle. Very good breakfast with buffet and hot food to order and delicious coffee. Excellent and helpful staff.

The location and facilities are fantastic but it is the staff that makes this such a wonderful place to stay in Franschhoek and is the reason we return every year and will continue to do so for many years to come.
