Paarl|3.1km from downtownWe have been in Paarl many times before, but have never stayed at Grand Roche before. Got a really good price on Booking.com and booked us in for two nights. The arrival was really nice, both at the gate and at the reception. I also asked them to put o bottle of MCC in the room when we got back - which they did( and a good one). Very nice room/suite, with an patio overlooking the vineyards on the estate. Very good beds and also very nice living room. The whole estate gives a luxury feeling ! The restaurant had recently been changed and are now called Viande and that is where the breakfast i served. The Viande is open for non guests as well - that the former restaurant didn't do. The breakfast was very good and it was nice to sit outside in the morning! We also had a massage that was booked via Grand Roche and the girl that did the massage was very good - so we can recommend that. We had a very nice stay at Grand Roche and it it hadn't been for the following, we have rated it with a 5. Reason is this: - The floor tiles in the shower was loose, so when standing on them, old water that smelled bad, popped up. - On the floor ,under the basin we also found ants that was dry, so been there for a while. Clearly - both things above should not to be found in a place like Grand Roche. Both things should have been noticed by the cleaning staff and taking care of by maintenance. When we left, the staff at reception was informed about the above issues. So for us, we truly hope that the above issues was a one time thing, so we can think of coming back to Grand Roche next time we are in Paarl.
