Grande Roche Hotel, Paarl, Western Cape We did not stay there but wished we had! What a beautiful place. The loveliest of reception staff, smiling broadly behind their desk, were more than ready to help you – whether you wanted prices, to see the rooms, to get some coffee or even the menus. It had a certain style. I loved... More
