For our honeymoon we stayed two nights in the Bath House. What a Grand experience it was to feel like a king and queen for a few days. Service, view, cocktails, rooms everything was out of this world!

We decided to have lunch here on a rather chilly day. On entering the restaurant we asked - not seriously - for a table for 2 by a roaring log fire. We were the first lunch guests to arrive and we were asked to wait a few moments whilst they prepared our table. What we did not realise was that... More

We travelled across the garden route staying at many hotels and this was certainly the most individual and memorable! We stayed in the bath house - certainly special for our honeymoon. The staff were really helpful and the restaurant was really atmospheric.

This hotel has it all. Lovely cosy fire in lobby, friendly staff on check in. Our room was amazing. The bath House has it all. The detail that goes into the decor in this hotel is incredible. Lovely lavender and hot water bottles in our bed at night time. Would definitely recommend this hotel and hope to some day return.... More

We had a very pleasant stay at the hotel. The staff were all very friendly and the hotel food top notch. A very quaint place to take a short break with lots to see and do in the area. Some really good reataurants in the area as well.

We stopped in at the Grand for lunch and really enjoyed it. They had a limited Winter menu but we managed to find a dish each to enjoy. The boys and myself enjoyed the lamb burgers and my wife loved the fried Kingklip. The view from the patio was just awesome, overlooking the lagoon, coast and beaches. Service was very... More

The service at Le Grand was just amazing. The rooms are fantastic, the beds awesome and the warm water bottles that is waiting in your bed the most amazing surprise of all. I never had this at any other place and that gave a very unique and special feel to my stay. The location is the best!! The staff at... More

There is nothing about this place I can say other than so swanky, shabby chic, and perfect....from the hot water bottles placed in our beds at night to the brilliant candelabra by the claw foot bath overlooking the sea. The room was huge and the price is right. Food downstairs is superb and the views on the patio are beautiful.... More

This place is outstanding - seriously, I cannot think of a single negative thing about the night we stayed there (other than one night was way too short to appreciate its charms). We were in 'room' 8, which was about twice as big as my entire flat in London. The wrought-iron (supremely comfortable) bed was so high there were little... More

Loved this place. Amazing quirky rooms. The highest bed ever but oh so comfy. Large room with everything you needed and a bit more. Great small pool. Restaurant just a few steps away. Great breakfast and excellent dinners. Lovely views. Staff friendly and attentive. We only stayed for 2 nights enjoyed every minute
