Don’t come! This is terrible. They made their history and try to survive with it. Currently, it is old and awful.

I booked for 5 days, but left less than 24h of my arrival.

See the pics and get your own conclusion.

This is by far an excellent and luxury place to stay. Food and wine are great and the view is priceless.
However, we do see room for improvement in two areas:
1 staff could be more attentive (watch out for empty glasses, remove used dishes and don‘t let guest three times renind you of easy requests
2 try to actively remind guests of ‚dress code for restaurant‘, otherwise your high standard gets diluted by some guests

Other than that, this is value for money.

Thank you very much for your review on Trip Advisor. We are so pleased that you could appreciate the scenery and enjoyed your meal in Bosman's. Our rooms are all thatched roofs, nevertheless, we have noted your comments as well as that of the dogs which were unfortunately outside the parameters of the farm.
We hope we will have the pleasure of welcoming you again to the elegant charm of the Grande Roche Hotel.
Kind regards

The hotel is absolutely stunning with incredible views of paarl and the mountains, the staff couldnt be more helpful - but book your own transfers from the airport as they are really expensive through the hotel roughly twice the price of a good transfer booked at arrival. Rooms are clean and tidy but the bathrooms are a little tired and in need of some TLC. Breakfast is the best hotel breakfast i have ever had and I will definetly be back to stay in 2018. Duane and Shirl the Wine Stewards were incredible and really did make my stay- hats of to them for a fab list and excellent customer service.

My wife and I had our wedding here and stayed two nights as well as approximately 20 of our guests. I can't rate this place highly enough, it was perfect!
The wedding areas were beautiful, the staff were very accommodating, the rooms were lovely and huge, the food was delicious.
I would love to come back here again!
