We stayed one night in April in a Duplex Suite. We paid a lot of money for a very outdated room. The furniture is old and bulky, there was droppings from the grass roof on the bed and the bathrooms are just as outdated as the room. Old taps, bath and shower. I requested a iron and iron board and...

We stayed for 3 nights over Easter while I'm SA for a friends wedding. We booked a terrace suite and loved that we had a separate lounge and the terrace was really nice to sit out on and enjoy the complimentary half bottle of wine on! Although we didn't get a chance for a tip, the pool areas looked really...

Rooms were very modern with a separate living area and large bathroom. Housekeeping was excellent. Service really depended on who served you. Never saw anyone serving in the bar/bistro at any stage, which was a shame. Breakfast was great, dinner in Bosmans was really disappointing. Great views from the terrace overlooking the vines up to the mountains.

I just cannot over state the luxury and service offered when staying at the Grande Roche. We travelled with a disabled guest and I can co firm that the hotel has excellent facilities for disabled guests too. Top quality, peaceful, wonderful setting. We will be back.

Great service and happy to assist. Food was great. We decided to take the 7 course meal which was magnificent! Springbok: Awesome! Yeah indeed when explaining the various courses; the staff could be a little better prepared. But, in our case the wine, the view made up for this; by far.

We arrived at grande roche to a warm welcome. From the first minute all the team couldn't do enough for us making our experience truly memorable. We stayed for 6 nights in the lovely stables honeymoon suite. Our first experience was taking a light refreshment on the dining terrace with its lovely views across paarl towards the stunning drakenstein mountains....

The grounds are unfortunately not very well kept and the rooms out-dated. Needs a renovation. Staff friendly, however not more than that. Did not try the restaurant, because across the street is plenty alternative (go for Noop!). Would not return...

The setting of the hotel is beautiful. The gardens are lovely and well maintained. The room has been modernized but there are still signs of damp walls etc. The staff try very hard to please. The menu is not very appealing and is overly fancy. I am not sure I would return but the setting is certainly lovely.

To be fair I only stayed one night here in high season when just about all hotels in and around Paarl were full. I was charged a lot of money but in reality this hotel misses the mark. How? Well my room was freshly decorated but overfilled with stuff and sadly rather dated in terms of looks. On the other...
