The exclusive Manor House at Mont Rochelle Hotel and Mountain Vineyard in Franschhoek is open for business.
Virgin Limited Edition, Sir Richard Branson’s privately owned collection of luxury hotels and retreats, has announced the opening of the Manor House. Within walking distance of the main hotel, the house can accommodate eight adults in four luxury suites and six children in a bunkroom. Facilities include a ‘winter’ lounge and a games room, an open-plan lounge/dining room and an outdoor plunge pool. There is also an outdoor dining area, gym and a heated outdoor swimming pool.
A dedicated team and private chef take care of guests, arranging private dining, spa treatments, horseback riding and wine tasting. Guests can also choose either a three-course lunch or dinner daily in one of the main hotel’s two restaurants, at no additional cost. All drinks (including alcohol) are included.
The Manor House is available for exclusive stays of two nights or more year-round and rates start from the princely sum of R46 800 per night on the basis of eight adults sharing.
Meanwhile, the 22-room Mont Rochelle Hotel is offering a romance package for two people, priced from R12 748 in low season. This includes three nights’ accommodation on a B&B basis, wine tasting, a picnic and spa treatments. Group bookings of five to 10 rooms for a minimum two-night stay are available at a single fixed rate of R3 720 per room per night until 30 September 2016. The hotel’s exclusive-use rate for the same period is R116 830 per night and it is offering a 50-percent discount on this rate for the final night’s stay for bookings of two nights or more.
