We decided on the spur of the moment to go for a weekend to Grande Roche after seeing a special advertised on Twitter. We received a very warm welcome and a grand tour of the property. We stayed in a duplex suite which was spacious. We did not have dinner at Grande Roche the first night which I regret. After... More

So pleased we found this hotel, it is wonderful, the staff were so attentive, the setting glorious, sitting out on the terrace having breakfast looking out over the vineyards towards the mountains was just perfect. Our suite was spacious and welcoming. We ate in Bosman's restaurant twice and the excellent food was made even more enjoyable by the knowledgeable sommelier... More

Set in beautiful gardens and surrounded by vineyards this hotel offers a romantic experience. Staying under a thatched roof in great luxury is a special treat. Their wine list is exceptional as is the knowledge of the waiting staff. The four to six course menus are divine. If you’re not set on a particular wine I recommend to go for... More

The Grande Roche occupies a beautiful position in the Paarl valley with glorious views out over the mountains and surrounding vineyards. It is a tranquil, peaceful hotel and our accommodation was spacious and furnished to a very high standard. We enjoyed the outdoor swimming pool and took some of the gentle walks available. The staff are warm, friendly and attentive.... More

This is by far one of the nicest and most luxurious hotels I have ever had the pleasure of staying at. Everything right down to the smallest detail is taken care of. The rooms are enormous, clean, well appointed and the ultimate in comfort. The toiletries are Charlotte Rhys, which is always a sign of a good hotel. The staff... More

This hotel is fabulous. Surrounded by vineyards and mountains. It says it's 5 star and it most certainly is! On our arrival we were given a half bottle of complementary wine, chocolates and water. It's a wonderful hotel. The evening meal is very expansive by local standards and expect the meal to last a few hours although the quality can... More

I write this review in my room of the Grande Roche. I don't usually review my stay at hotels but this was just so incredible I just had to. The hotel itself is quite colonial and relatively old school, however the service from the minute we arrived has been impeccable. We had dinner at Bosmans which was an interesting collaboration...
