We visited the Grande Roche Hotel for an organised weekend away through Mediclinic. The facilities, service and food was amazing. Everyone was super friendly, very helpful and the room was absolutely gorgeous. The bed was turned down every night and the underfloor heating was very welcome in the cold winter evening. The food was 5 star and prepared to perfection.... More

We were so very excited to visit this hotel but so very disappointed in the end. The hotel needs a facelift. Rooms are shabby, furniture dated and finishes not great. Our underfloor heating was broken, aircon old and loud and garden not well kept. Value for money not there. Breakfast average - was not given an option of a hot... More

I stayed four nights last week and was absolutely stunned by the beauty, convenience, ambiance, and especially the staff. To keep things short and concise, go to their Web site and cruise around. What you see cannot do the place justice. The suites are huge and sit right amidst vineyards. They have transformed one of the oldest buildings in Paarl... More

Beautiful hotel in paarl with nice views and good food. They have both old design rooms as well as modern ones. A small vineyard of their own as well. The dining area overlooks the plains in front and is very scenic during sunrise and sunset. We stayed in the cottages towards the back of the resort. Overall a cozy place... More

The Grand Roche Hotel, nestled in the Cape winelands about 40 minutes from Cape Town, is a stunningly pretty property, with a friendly staff. I spent one night there in May (and had spent 5 nights there a few years earlier). One of the best restaurants in the Cape, Noop,is just a couple of blocks away. Unfortunately, the "load shedding"...

Dear valued guest, Thank you for taking the time to review the Grande Roche Hotel. We do our best to stay ahead of the load shedding schedules that Eskom release, but unfortunately they do not always provide enough warning time in order for us to advise all of our guests ahead of time.

Thank you so much to the GM Anja and her fantastic staff for a very warm hearted welcome. Our over night stay was breathtaking. The venue is magnificent surrounded by beautiful vineyards and extremely serene. Even though it poured with rain it's definitely a wonderful break away from the hustle and bustle of city life. The food was out of... More

The Grand Roche Hotel is situated on the countryside in downtown Paarl. A very romantic landscape with great views to the surrounding vineyards. Our terrace suite offered living room, sleeping room and bathroom with bath tube and separate shower. All rooms with thatched roofs. Because of our stay in May 15, the rooms were a little cold. The housekeeping put... More

We spent 1 night in the hotel in May. Excellent welcome, great surroundings, super rooms. The 4 course dinner was excellent and so was the breakfast. Very friendly staff. Sorry we could only stay 1 night.
