Stayed for two nights at the Mont Rochelle and had a great time. Hotel, grounds and rooms all very beautiful. The room was exceptionally comfortable with extra touches such as Molton Brown toiletries and a proper coffee machine.
Franschoek is a great place if you love food. La quarter Francis whilst expensive is an amazing experience and a must whilst you are there. Also Reuben's was a great meal although so do much food!!! The hotel will arrange axis into town and back which cost about 10 pound return but if there are a few of you they will combine you on a minibus if you don't mind making it more economical.
Breakfast at Mont Rochelle was a wonderful leisurely experience and I can imagine dinner in the restaurant would also be great.
Franschoek is far far nicer than Stellenbosch with a laid bak feel, great boutiques and street cafes... Highly recommended
