I must admit, I never go to Paarl and this was the perfect way to break my Cape Town Bubble mould. I felt so welcome and in another world. Everyone was so friendly and polite, the heritage rich and the grounds absolutely out of this world. A little slice of heaven comes to mind. Everything from The Grande Roche is... More

We spent a wonderful evening at Grande Roche. The service was excellent from the time we arrived until we left. we were greeted at the car park by a very friendly Junaid. He was so friendly and cheerful that our 8 month old son must've have thought he'd found a long lost uncle. The check in process was smooth and... More

My partner and I visited this hotel for a night and we really enjoyed our stay. We received a welcome drink on arrival before being taken to our room. This is not a modern hotel but it is luxurious, with heated floors in our room and everything you'd expect from a 5 star establishment. The reason I gave it 5... More

From the first moment we arrived we felt at home and our host, Nicolene Burger, was a gem and showed us the entire hotel and attend to our every need. The rooms was amazing and catered to the finest detail. The breakfast was... More

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
