We stayed at the hotel for only one night, but will definitely be back. The hotel is situated in Paarl at the foothills of Paarl mountain with beautiful views of the Drakenstein mountains, only 40 minutes drive from Cape Town. Stellenbosch and Franshoek is also close by. The staff, facilities, rooms and restaurant is what you would expect of a...

My fiancé and I took advantage of a Grande Roche Winter Special we recently saw on FaceBook. What a beautiful setting with a breathtaking view from the restaurant patio for our breakfast and lunch. Service from all staff was exceptional with Raymond, Major & Mercia adding to the incredible dining experience we had in the Bosman Restaurant. The chef is...

We were only here for a night but found our stay to be good - not perfect, but not too shabby either. You're really staying here because of the charms in this colonial-esque property and that was the reason why we find our stay to be so pleasant. The room we had was a duplex, and was extremely well appointed....

The Grande Roche is a beautifully maintained, old, authentic property. The rooms are nicely spread across the grounds so nothing feels crowded; you always feel part of the incredible landscape of Paarl. The gardens are gorgeous. And the service is understated and attentive. (E.g. Insisting on delivering my latte to my room rather than letting me carry it back). The...

Grande Roche is by no doubt a very nice hotel with a unique atmosphere. All buildings are historic and the garden is very well arranged. The room we were in was comfortable and nice decorated. Breakfast is good. However: having a historic ensemble does make it a hard job to maintain everything, but taking that into account the rooms, bathroom...

We stayed one night in April in a Duplex Suite. We paid a lot of money for a very outdated room. The furniture is old and bulky, there was droppings from the grass roof on the bed and the bathrooms are just as outdated as the room. Old taps, bath and shower. I requested a iron and iron board and...

We stayed for 3 nights over Easter while I'm SA for a friends wedding. We booked a terrace suite and loved that we had a separate lounge and the terrace was really nice to sit out on and enjoy the complimentary half bottle of wine on! Although we didn't get a chance for a tip, the pool areas looked really...

Rooms were very modern with a separate living area and large bathroom. Housekeeping was excellent. Service really depended on who served you. Never saw anyone serving in the bar/bistro at any stage, which was a shame. Breakfast was great, dinner in Bosmans was really disappointing. Great views from the terrace overlooking the vines up to the mountains.

I just cannot over state the luxury and service offered when staying at the Grande Roche. We travelled with a disabled guest and I can co firm that the hotel has excellent facilities for disabled guests too. Top quality, peaceful, wonderful setting. We will be back.

Great service and happy to assist. Food was great. We decided to take the 7 course meal which was magnificent! Springbok: Awesome! Yeah indeed when explaining the various courses; the staff could be a little better prepared. But, in our case the wine, the view made up for this; by far.
