Trendsetter combines heritage with comfortFebruary 14th, 2012 by Andrew Moth | Categories: hotels, industry, tourism
The Grande Roche Hotel in Paarl is showing a new and more modern face as it celebrates 20 successful years of hospitality and undergoes a décor makeover.
The new look has been selected to complement the heritage of the buildings and exudes a comfortable elegance.
General manager Anja Bosken says: “We realise that we have to be competitive in this fast-paced world. Injecting new life into the hotel is one of our long-term goals and this more modern look brings us in line with world trends.”
To date, 13 of the 18 Terrace Suites have been given a new livery with a neutral colour scheme. With a splash of bright colour here and there, the rooms show off their spaciousness. The en suite bathrooms have also been upgraded with granite vanity slabs and modern fittings and accessories.
Interior decorator Juanita Miller of Paisley Rose Interiors supplied the soft furnishings, lighting and mirrors. Her brief was to create an environment where leisure and business complement each other. She opted for classic fabrics with a modern twist, combining neutrals and rich shades.
