Grande Roche has Five Category Types as follows:

Studio Suites


The six 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.  One of the rooms is fully equipped for disabled guests.


Duplex Suites


The old slave quarters, tranformed – into five duplex suites, with names that reflect their Dutch colonial past: Java, Jasmijn, Batavia, Malabaar and Koljanner.  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.


Terrace Suites


The 18 terrace suites are in groups of three, 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.


Garden Suite


The garden suite was once the original farm stable.  A combination of luxury, romance and rustic charm, this is a totally private suite.  It has a lounge, bedroom with king-sized bed, bathroom with double shower and spa bath, private sun terrace and separate enclosed patio.  It doesn’t get better than this!
