A lovely room with excellent attention to detail. The breakfast was served in a superb setting with friendly knowledgeable staff. Within easy walking distance to the hub of Stellenbosch. A fantastic break away from the stress of city life.

Looking for something different to the norm, something central, and accessible to most of what Stellenbosch has to offer. Beautiful room, great decor, picturesque gardens and wonderful history. Even the restaurant courtyard under the hanging gardens and peacfully hidden from day to day hustle and bustle in Stellenbosch.

The hotel was just renovated, the rooms are very comfortable and the whole place is very beautiful. There is a wonderful bath tube and a shower in the bathroom. The location is fantastic, right in the middle of the city next to shops and nice restaurants and bars. The only issue I had and made not give it 5 stars... More

Wonderful relaxing break in the heart of the beautiful Stellenbosch village. However still awaiting feedback from hotel/flight centre agent as to the afternoon tea and cake arrangement.(unfortunately this has left a sour taste)and like all unhappy customers you tell your friends. Staff from Elvis at valet to the dining room all very positive,your reception not as friendly. Sandgav SA

We stayed here a few years ago and was lovely, but this time was much better. The hotel has a new lift with a mix of modern and Stellenbosch classic. We really appreciated the room on the courtyard, beautiful. Great location in town, with good restaurants and bars in close walking distance. Brilliant breakfast.

The Oude Weuf is idealy situated in the middle of the town, but beware if you are driving to the location, Road names are located on the kerb stones and there are several one way streets.

Lovely hotel! Newly decorated rooms are gorgeous. Excellent service and breakfast that was included. Only one server in at the restaurant wasn't great but otherwise couldn't fault the hotel and location and will come again.
