Firstly, if you read any reviews that say ALL the rooms are renovated please dismiss them, as they are not true, there are a number in each category that are not, we stayed in 2 of them. I can only assume the previous reviewers did not stay in a room called 'Percheron' a room I wouldn't wish on my worst...

We stayed at Grande Roche for one night during our tour of the Winelands. We arrived after a full day's touring and received such a friendly welcome from the staff at the hotel. We also were given a complimentary glass of sparkling wine whilst we completed the check-in forms - I certainly couldn't fault the process, we immediately felt relaxed...

We spend 11 nights at the grand roche. The suite was perfect for our needs.We had roomservice breakfast every morning on our private patio. Housekeeping was great and discreet. The reception very efficient and helpful. We had some dinners at the restaurant, very delicious. One negative point: on some days the noise of the lawn mowers is very annoying, but...

We stayed here over Christmas as part of our honeymoon. It took a while to get used to the smell of the thatch in the rooms (!) and the slower pace of the hotel compared to where we'd stayed in Cape Town. However, these things added to the overall charm of our stay. This is a low key hotel (minus...

We repeatedly came to Grande Roche, and we always loved it. The rooms in the pavillons are superb (avoid the rooms in the historical building without terrace and small windows) and the food at Bosman's is a great experience. We did not like the bossy attitude of the chef de service, though . I do not think that guests would...

Are staying four nights at this hotel. The surroundings are beautiful. But we are disappointed of the dinner last night. We booked in the month of May with mrs Christine Visagie our dinner reservations at this hotel. Sunday, 1st of january 2017, she promised us their very popular Bubbles and Braai evening. As the name " Bubbles and Braai" indicates,...

This hotel has the views, the facilities (the gym is tiny though) but somehow lacks any feeling of engagement. Our experience included putting up with customers who didn't like our young children having fun which was annoying. The food is ok but equally good and much cheaper options are a short walk away. Pools are nice and warm. Good wifi....

We got married here 9 years ago and came back for our anniversary and very glad we did. We were welcomed by such pleasant people, even the hotel manager stopped to offer his best wishes. How he knew who we were I'm not sure - it costs nothing but means a lot. Having stayed in Franschoek for a few nights...

This was our fourth visit to this hotel, which offers fantastic views which I was looking forward to. We were given a room called 'Ploughshed'. This has a hedge outside, then the car park, then an even taller hedge with trees and no view. Our request for a different room was refused. At the rear was the noisy laundry room,and...

We spent one night at this outstanding hotel, experiencing the quietness and the luxury of this historic landmark building! Room-wise we had one of the suites, overlooking the garden, with a private garden, facing the mountains. Also the restaurant is a real Bijoux with amazing food and great staff. We will return!
