My family and I recently experience the Grande Roche Hotel for the first time. We were absolutely blown away by the quirky yet elegant decor we found there. But perhaps what stood out to me most was the friendly nature of the staff. They were willing to go above and beyond to accommodate us and make our experience there truly memorable. Finally, if that wasn't enough, the food was absolutely incredible. I highly commend this establishment to you. Good views, good people, and good food... what more could you ask for!

What a pleasure it was dining at Grande Roche! The food was full of flavour using fresh ingredients in a really clever way. Being vegan they were also able to accommodate me wonderfully! Most notable for me was the vegan chocolate avocado semifreddo. Will definitely be going again and recommend to anyone looking for exquisite food and friendly service in a beautiful setting.

Beautiful hotel. Great location, close to the main road but far enough not to have all the noise. Great view from the restaurant terrace. Very friendly and helpful staff. Gardens are beautiful and well maintained. Apparently new ownership since a couple of months.

We stayed at the Grande Roche for two nights. The staff were very friendly and our room was lovely and comfortable with nice touches such as evening snack tray. We ate in the hotel restaurant both nights (as other local restaurants were closed over the Christmas period). The food was delicious but lacked many vegetarian choices. We visited a local vineyard and were able to arrange drop off and collection via the hotel's own taxi shuttle service, which was convenient. For a 15 minute journey there and back, this cost R480.
