The celebrated 5* Grande Roche Hotel is a place where history interacts with modern comforts and where the atmosphere of a bygone era brings a sense of gracious, unhurried living.
The essence of the Grande Roche Hotel experience lies in the unique, individually named suites spread over landscaped gardens in the midst of a working wine farm with its inimitable style and unsurpassed excellence in service.A proud member of Small Luxury Hotels of the World, this is the ideal base from which to explore the Cape, relax at the pools, and amongst others, enjoy some golf on the nearby courses.
From the moment you arrive, you are warmly greeted by the Guest Service team, offered a welcome drink and escorted to your suite through the beautiful gardens.
The 18 Terrace Suites are in groups of 3, scattered around the estate. All are built in the original Cape colonial style, with thatched roofs, shutters and trailing vines over the private outdoor terrace. Whether you are relaxing in the lounge or enjoying a lazy morning in the bedroom, the view from each room is spectacular. Imagine looking out on the mellow mists of autumn or the bright green vines flanked by roses in the summer, this is the place to be whatever the season.
The old slave quarters on the estate has been developed into 5 Duplex Suites, with names that reflect their Dutch colonial past. The ground floor of each suite has a spacious lounge, where extra beds can be made up to accommodate families. Upstairs the large bedroom boasts twin or king bed configuration with views across the gardens.
The 4 Studio Suites are situated in the charmingly restored coach and carriage houses of the historic estate. They contain a spacious lounge/bedroom and each has its own semi private garden terrace with a magnificent view of the majestic Drakenstein mountains.
A combination of luxury, romance and elegant charm, the Garden Suite is in a class of its own and boasts a small courtyard and private roof top terrace.
