Having visited the Grande Roche about 10 years ago, my overall impression on my most recent stay was a slightly sad one. The attention to finer detail which was always the hallmark of this grand old lady has disappeared. From the service levels (which are attentive but lack polish) to the decor and the state of the rooms. All boxes...

This was our third stay at Grande Roche, although we dine there often. We spent our wedding night there five years ago and returned for our fifth anniversary. We were very spoilt with a bottle of wine, a fruit platter and home made biscuits in the room when we arrived, and champagne on ice and chocolates when the room had...

I was totally blown away with the attention to detail. 5* is to little for this gem in Paarl Cape Town. Exceptional experience and the food is artwork on a plate. Every need was catered for. Outstanding service. I was made to feel like a queen.

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...
