    Beautiful settings, enchanting grounds, cordial staff, serene for a weekend getaway. Our room was clean, big enough - sitting room, bedroom, double sink bathroom - and quite private lodging. Loved it. Sporadic power outages are okay. Thank you!

    Two nights in Paarl

    The hotel 's public rooms and areas have great charm and character. The suite was very spacious but tired and in need of refurbishment. The staff team is fantastic - welcoming, helpful, cheerful and willing. Breakfast offered both buffet and al a carte options. Dinner was excellent. Easy to walk into town but hotel offer a shuttle service that operates day and evenings.

    The hotel is a little tired and outdated. It could be grand, it is well-located with beautiful views, but requires investment (bathrooms) and management attention. The restaurant was probably the least interesting we encountered on our 2½ weeks in South Africa. Meals overcooked, and uninspiring.

    Excellent choice for Hotel in Paarl.

    I recently enjoyed a long stay at Grande Roche Hotel in Paarl, South Africa. This hotel sits up on hill overlooking the valley, and among the wine vineyards of the property. My room was extremely comfortable, with a King sized bed, a living room, and master bathroom. Housekeeping, Grounds keeping, and especially Hotel Staff were excellent. Friendly, accommodating, professional. Dinning room was beautiful, Food quality was excellent, but the menu was limited (same menus for lunch and Dinner). Wine menu was expansive and high quality. Location was ideal. Within walking distance of old Paarl (10 to 12 city blocks), or just a few minutes drive to all parts Paarl.

    Sehr nette hilfsbereite Angestellte. Wir hatten ein Zimmer mit toller Ausstattung und renoviertem, sehr modernem Bad. Die Anlage ist sehr schön angelegt. Einzig das Frühstücksbuffet am 2. Tag war für ein 5 Sterne Haus etwas dürftig in der Auswahl. Am 1. Tag gab es aufgrund der niedrigen Auslastung kein Buffet, man konnte a la carte bestellen und es war lecker.
