The hotel itself is beautifully decorated with tasteful furniture and large windows to frame the views. The sense of instant relaxation is heightened by the expansive lawns and many tranquil spots dotted around the property. Keen walkers can stroll through the vineyards, or you can explore the wine estate by horseback or mountain bike. Every guest receives a complimentary wine-tasting experience.

Merlot Room

The six Merlot Rooms are larger than the Shiraz Rooms and also boast king-sized beds with valley views.

Cabernet Room

The Cabernet Rooms include a private terrace overlooking the valley.

Shiraz Room

Mont Rochelle Hotel has 16 rooms and six suites, all of which offer lovely views of the ever-dramatic Franschhoek scenery. The rooms are individually decorated and boast luxurious details such as soft towelling bathrobes, down pillows and a choice of twin or king-sized beds.

Pinotage Suite

The four Pinotage Suites, each with a separate lounge, boast fantastic views. They are named for the red wine grape – a cross between pinot noir and cinsaut - that has been South Africa's signature variety since 1925.

Cap Classique Suite

Guests staying in one of the two Cap Classique Suites will enjoy a lounge, a private terrace and their own plunge pool. Most rooms have valley views, although some look on to the picturesque courtyard.


A well-equipped gym is available to work off all that fine food, wine and cheese if you overindulge at Mont Rochelle. Horseback and mountain-bike excursions are also offered off-site, or you can just lounge around the heated swimming pool during the hot summer months (from about October to March) and soak up the glorious views of the surrounding mountains and vineyards.

Various indulgent massages and beauty treatments are available from the Spa at Mont Rochelle - try a Grape Skin Facial or the Spice Journey Massage, which makes use of a variety of traditional Cape Malay spices.

Be sure to visit the cellar and tasting room to try the various white and red wines made on the estate. Gourmet wine pairings are a fun way to experiment with different flavours.


Mont Rochelle's fine-dining restaurant, Miko, is the perfect place to round off a day in the stunning Cape Winelands. This elegant restaurant offers world-class cuisine, great wines produced on the farm itself, and mesmerising vineyard views to accompany your meal. For a more relaxed, Mediterranean approach to dining, The Country Kitchen offers outdoor dining areas overlooking vineyards - a great venue to enjoy a glass of the cellar's own fine wine.

The Country Kitchen will also pack you a delicious picnic basket that you can take with you to enjoy at a pretty spot on the estate - under the trees, next to the dam or in the fragrant rose garden. End your day with pre-dinner drinks and canapés at The Bar. The Bar also serves light meals until early evening as well as hot chocolate and biscuits in front of the roaring fire in winter (about May to August).
