This was an impulse booking on an extended family stay in Paarl and we were grateful we did. We found the front of house staff to be excellent and flexible with the idiosyncratic requirements of a young family - with Julian and Onwaba both being outstanding. Some reviews have seemed to knit pick certain aspects of the hotels character, but... More

What a gorgeous location. Great view from the breakfast terrace, mostly genuinely friendly staff but what a disappointment. Took a duplex suite which turned out to be rather dark. Internet is slow but working in the lobby area but mostly not working in the room. The shower is hard to enter for a man of 100kg + as a tiny... More

Local Cape Town residents decided to drive out to Paarl for our 47th anniversary lunch, What a pleasant surprise. Lovely ambience, great staff and service. Food was top division and more reasonable than I expected. The kicker was when our coffee was brought to us we also got a board with Happy Annivesray written on it and some divine chocs... More

This was our second visit to this first class hotel in Paarl and we were once again not disappointed. Our suite was spacious, split over two floors and is furnished to a very high standard. Breakfast is included and is taken on the terrace watching the sun rise! The food is excellent and the restaurant, Bosmans, is a must. There... More

The Grande Roche Hotel is definitely something special, from the welcoming to the food, to the special touches in the rooms. I thoroughly enjoyed the Bubbles and Braai and thought that the food was incredibly tasty and beautifully presented.

We attended a breakfast for a 50th birthday. The experience was very disappointing. The service was almost nonexistent and we had to ask for them to serve the coffee and champagne over and over again. I had the impression that their only desire was to get us out of there.
