We stayed 3 nights in November 2015. The setting is paradise. The views magnificent and do you know if I was on honeymoon and had just wanted to hide myself away with my partner I would give this 5 bullets and not 4. However I am a long term married person and whilst the rooms are lovely and individual, the...

We stayed here for a few days while we explored / drank in the wine region. A lovely location. Paarl itself not overly exciting and certainly not as touristy as Frranschoek, although there are 2 or 3 good restaurants only 300M or so from Grande Roche. That is, of course, if you fancy a change. The menu at Grand Roche,...
