We stayed at the Grande Roche for two nights. The staff were very friendly and our room was lovely and comfortable with nice touches such as evening snack tray.

We ate in the hotel restaurant both nights (as other local restaurants were closed over the Christmas period). The food was delicious but lacked many vegetarian choices.

We visited a local vineyard and were able to arrange drop off and collection via the hotel's own taxi shuttle service, which was convenient. For a 15 minute journey there and back, this cost R480.

I had the opportunity to stay at Grande Roche, in a Terrace Suite. Grande Roche is understated elegance; from the rooms which I absolutely loved, to the beautiful cultivated gardens and vineyard, to the restaurant which by the way, serves up very fine dishes. There is such a sense of relaxation and peace whether you are sitting on the veranda or wondering through the property. The views are stunning. The staff are absolutely amazing; very professional, helpful and friendly. This is definitely a place that begs for a return visit and it's best to opt for 2 or 3 nights; more if you can.

The reputation of Grande Roche means that a high standard is expected, and it did not disappoint. Warmth and luxury abound, and the staff were professional and courteous too. Bonuses included excellent free wifi, one of the best showers we have encountered, and underfloor heating in the bathroom was a delight. The evening meal was lipsmackingly good, and if I really had to search for a niggle it would be that providing paper table napkins rather than linen is a bit out of place in an upmarket establishment.

We ate on the terrace of this beautiful historic Manor House overlooking Paarl valley and mountains beyond interrupted by estate ornate gardens and cascading vineyards from its elevated position.It set the tone for a relaxing lunch.The hard chef Kevin growler was not in the kitchen but his sous chef admirably filled his shoes which says a lot.
The restaurant interior is beautifully designed with tables positioned well apart and reflects its fine dining credentials
We were served by quite young staff who were very engaging
We had three course lunch and we were fortunate to have as options the freshest of crayfish as a starter beautifully presented and accompaniments well balanced and for dessert a vanilla souffle delivered to out table by the pastry chef.For the latter the only suggestion I have is to serve it other than a cup

Grand Roche is beautifully nestled among the vineyards of Paarl, surrounded by a well-maintained garden. The hotel has a classic feel with a modern touch and offers stunning views of the mountains. Our rooms were very spacious and comfortable, with tasteful decor. We enjoyed a lovely lunch and dinner at the restaurant, and the breakfast was more than delicious. The staff was friendly and very helpful. A stay at Grand Roche is a luxurious and exceptional experience.

I stayed here for 4 nights for a team retreat and was blown away by the beautiful rooms, delicious meals, stunning winery and mountain scenery, and amazing staff and service. We came in the middle of winter and found the hotel warm and cozy. There's not enough space to say all the great things, so just some personal favorites - a suite room looking out to the grape vines and Paarl mountains, endless chocolate chip cookies and amazing tea/coffee selection, relaxing bubble baths, and unforgettable meals and desserts from the restaurant staff!

The accommodations were spacious, tastefully decorated, and equipped with modern amenities to ensure a comfortable stay. I particularly enjoyed the plush bedding and luxurious bathroom, which added to the overall feeling of indulgence.

Dining at Grande Roche was a culinary delight. The on-site restaurants offered a diverse selection of gourmet dishes, showcasing the finest local ingredients and flavors. Each meal was expertly prepared and presented, making dining here a memorable experience.

We first stayed at the Grande Roche a few years ago and always promised ourselves that we would return one day. We are so glad we started our latest trip with a few days of luxury in this truly spectacular setting. Stunning rooms, fabulous grounds, friendly staff make this hotel extra special and worth every penny. The welcome gift and nightly turn down service goodies were a lovely touch. We were upgraded to a suite and felt very lucky to be able to sit on the terrace and watch the sun set at the end of the day surrounded by the scent of frangipani.

In late January 2022 My wife and I were able to visit Grande Roche with our two children and their spouses. In all my life I have never experienced such a grand time! The food was spectacular (I have an eating disorder and they were able to prepare a great meal for me every day). Our rooms were beautiful and well serviced each of the five days we stayed. The whole family is excited to return as soon as possible!
The views from and of the hotel are beautiful, really enjoyed breakfast on the front deck. Service throughout our stay could not have been better.

Thank You Grande Roche.

When traveling in the Winelands the eyes are spoilt for choice, the mountains, the vineyards, the architecture and so much more. as you drive up Plantasie street you think this cannot be leading to an expansive vineyard as it is a street of beautiful homes and then you turn into Grande Roche and a vineyard opens up in front of you. This property has it all in abundance however it’s has a special ingredient …the staff. You will most definitely be treated to the full five star experience accommodation, food and service delivered by staff who want you to love the property and experience it not just as a hotel but as an indulgence that you will not want to leave. Thank you in particular to Survardia and the restaurant team who not only served us delicious food but also recommended places to visit. In a place where hospitality is delivered to an excellent standard Grande Roche gives even more.

Can't say about them all, but I had a large walk in shower and a lovely free standing bath. There was underfloor heating and low level lighting to make to that bit more luxurious.
