Grande Roche Hotel

Grande Roche Hotel

Famous for its sublime old-world elegance and idyllic location that overlooks the mountains and vineyards of the magnificent Paarl Valley, the Grande Roche Hotel transcends the ordinary.

After three decades of offshore ownership, the historic five-star property at the foot of the landmark Paarl Mountain has been acquired by entrepreneurs Hansie and Theresa Britz and renowned TV celebrity Chef Pete Goffe-Wood is on board as chef-patron of the all-new restaurant, Viande.

The Grande Roche's history dates to the early 1700s. Its buildings in the Cape vernacular have been certified a national monument. Today, the 23ha property at the foot of the majestic Paarl Mountain retains a country village feel and comprises not only the hotel, but vineyards too. An open-air amphitheatre and function centre are each able to accommodate 200 people.

The hotel is scheduled for a transformation - in addition to a maintenance overhaul, work will include a revamp of several rooms and the establishment of a completely new restaurant and cocktail bar. D├ęcor will be overseen by well-known Cape interior designer Francois du Plessis.
