A proud member of Small Luxury Hotels of the World and a South African National Treasure, Grande Roche Hotel maintains a top notch standard of hospitality through decades and ages in our history.

Overlooking vineyards and mountains, in the heart of Paarl, it boasts beautiful gardens and award-winning cuisine with the Bosman’s experience.

Scattered among vines and orchards, accommodation in the hotel is made of a series of stand-alone thatched roof buildings, each with a series of rooms. Every room with its own balcony enables a panoramic view of the gardens and the valley.

The grounds also hold a historic small chapel with plucks for every couple being married there over time, two heated open air swimming pools and a conference center with a small amphitheater atop.

The Manor House which is also the signature image of the hotel in particular and the Paarl Wine Route at large, is home to the Bosman’s restaurant. An award winning fine dining establishment that incorporated one of the first private wine cellars in the area and holds a collection of carefully selected bottles from reputable wine estates all over the Western Cape. The hotel’s Sommelier is there to guide one through the vast selection.


Bosman’s restaurant itself, as a sole feature is open for Lunch, High Tea and Dinner to day visitors too. A Michelin-trained Executive Chef infuses classic international cuisine with imagination and innovation. Matching to this status, a semi-formal dress code is required and as with all restaurants of that caliber, pre-booking is advised.

Being a reputable local legend as a wedding destination, the hotel has a special, charming cottage for honey mooners that include extra indulgence perks, worthy of royalty, to suit this special time in life.

Being a bucket list destination for most South Africans and many international travelers in the know, a stay at Grande Roche is an experience that won’t fail you.
