Located in a beautiful suburban location of Cape Town, this hotel gives you good value for the price. A hearty breakfast is included, rooms are clean and the grounds are well maintained. About a 10 minute walk to the University, a 45 minute drive to the waterfront in Cape Town. Lots of shops and restaurants in the area.

The shower that overlooks the bedroom area is so unique. Gorgeous Balcony looking over the courtyard area. We enjoyed the buffet breakfast... More

stayed in Apr 12 so second visit for two rather than three days this time. Family apartment option worked pretty well for us and provided flexibility. Glad we were at the back to avoid some of the extensive noise from building activity at front. Breakfasts were good on both days. Location is one of the key selling points for the... More

I stayed here 20 years ago and admit it has lost a lot of its old world charm but it was also a lot smaller then. Staff are fantastic - always friendly and quick to place. It is well placed to walk somewhere locally for dinner and does not get any overflow of street noise. They are about to start... More

Great two bedroom family apartment with a full kitchen, lots of space and a fantastic terrace. The location is absolutely perfect on Church Street right next to wonderful restaurants and great shopping. If ever in Stellenbosch again, we will definitely stay there.

After more than 200 yrs of hospitality the staff at Oude Werf Hotel in Stellenbosch have surely worked out how to make guests feel welcome and comfortable. The beds are large and very comfortable. Our room, although at street level was quiet (most of the time). The common areas are pleasant and furnished with newspapers and interesting books. Staff are... More

This hotel looks better in the pictures than in reality. The location is good but I was given an oak apartment which I didn't want. It overlooked a busy bar and was right at the back behind the main hotel. It is alarmed and gated which worried me. After refusing the room I was moved to the main building which... More
