5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed at the hotel for two nights while we were on our Vine Tour of the winerarys. The front desk and entry was in the oldest portion of the hotel with the newer back portion of the hotel hosting the rooms, restaurant and courtyard. The rooms are done in a very updated manner and had the best bed and... More

I would like to thank the Oude Werf for making my birthday celebration an amazing experience. The team went above and beyond! I am a student and usually we are treated with less respect than other customers (my experience when I started to look at venues). But the first day I spoke to Ashley she treated me as a customer...

My wife and I spent one night on a long wekend. We booked the more expensive delux room which may have been a mistake. The site says newly renovated and it may have been but it was decidedly old and had that musty smell. The newer rooms in the main section looked very much nicer but on checking out I... More

Such a quaint and quiet town in the middle of the university. I was not prepared for the inside of the hotel to be so modern. The staff was friendly and attentive. Even during the "load shedding" the staff was very accommodating.

If you are looking for a base to explore the area, you cannot go wrong with this hotel. Friendly and helpful staff. The rooms are a good size and the beds really comfortable.

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 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
