On check-in I first thought that this establishment was a bit dated and perhaps hiding behind that title in its name... Grande in 2016. But, our expectations were then always exceeded!!! After noticing the heated floors from the bed to the bathroom, the hidden touches like a handwritten weather forecast, turndown service with lit candles in the bathroom and chocolates... More

The service from this team was exceptional. Yes, the restaurant was very quiet given it as a Sunday evening in winter, but the food, environment, wine (incredible choice & an extremely knowledgeable/friendly sommelier) together with the overall service made this evening a very enjoyable experience.

Grande Roche was our last part of our South Africa journey and it felt very sad to leave this place. The hotel was excellent with lovely staff and the 4 course dinner was out of the world. The chef made special efforts for making special vegetarian meals for myself. Thank you Grande Roche Team. We promise to come back.

We stayed at the Grande Roche hotel for a weekend to celebrate our anniversary. The hotel was very nice and comfortable, and the staff incredibly attentive. From the check-in, where we relaxed in front of the open fire while the formalities were taken care of, to returning to our room after a fantastic dinner to find rose petals had been... More

Thank you to the staff at Grande Roche for making our 2 night stay a perfect one. You were always friendly, welcoming and very willing to be of any assistance to us. Our suite was stunning, attention to detail fantastic and beautifully cleaned. The breakfasts were delicious too. We had an amazing time and highly recommend this hotel.

Everything 5* Friendly long term staff who feels like family and knows how to please, great breakfast, lunch and gourmet dinners with superb wine list and attention from sommelier. Suite was modern but comfy with complete mini bar, heated floors in bathroom and vineyard views. Also a heated outside pool next to spa.

Together with the help of the Hotel and friendly staff, I was privileged enough to go down on my knee and ask the special question to my girlfriend whilst staying at the hotel for 2 nights. Everything starting from the weekend to the proposal was a big surprise for her and would not have been possible if it wasn't for... More

To celebrate our 35th anniversary amidst a hectically busy work programme, I decided a Sunday night away would be the answer. Coincidentally I saw a Daddy's Deal ( similar to Groupon) offer online at the Grande Roche Hotel in Paarl, for a really reasonable R1499 (less than $100), and decided to book. The staff were alerted to our arrival by... More

We live 7 kilometres away but visit frequently for dinner or just tea and scones. The view on the Paarl mountains in the late afternoon is spectacular and a good bottle of wine make it even better. Ons our recent visit we had hot chocolate(with Vodka) and scones watching the sunset against the mountains with the colours changing as the... More
