A delightful boutique hotel right in the centre of Stellenbosch. You can walk to all the nice restaurants & shops as they have valet parking on site. From the minute we arrived till we left 4 days later the whole experience was delightful. Service was excellent & the rooms were large, lovely decor & spacious en-suite bathrooms with plenty of...

Room was not ready on arrival but that wasn't a problem as it is in the centre of the town so we just went and had some lunch across the road . The room was well worth waiting for ,large with big shower and lovely comfy bed. We did eat in the restaurant one evening which was OK but nothing... More

We spent only two nights at the Oude Werf Hotel on our trip to South Africa but so wish it was more. From our moment of arrival when we were shown to our beautiful room in the older part of the hotel, full of antique furniture Including four poster bed, to when we left, nothing was too much trouble for...

This hotel is well located in the centre of Stellenbosch, itself a beautiful historic town, the second oldest in South Africa. There are good restaurants and cafes immediately around it and it is quite OK to walk the streets in this neighbourhood Rooms are good, best rooms are actually the middle, not the top category. Staff very helpful. Breakfasts are... More

The moment we walked in we knew that this was a special place. The blend of old and new was fantastic; we had a very modern room with loads of light. Everything was top quality and spotless. The front desk staff and porters were really friendly and helpful. The only thing stopping me giving 5 stars was the breakfast. Service... More

Walking up to the reception of this hotel makes you feel at home. The interior and the friendly staff are all about telling you to feel comfortable. Also the decoration of the spacious room was elegant. An excellent bed, nice shower (rain-shower) and sufficient lights, contributed to my conclusion that this is an outstanding hotel. Breakfast is good with more... More

We booked a room from new wing and were "upgraded" to old one with stinky smell and no lights. As we knew exactly what is the difference I claimed and was re-booked to new one. This is really perfect- modern, clean and spacy.

Lovely hotel in a perfect position in Stellenbosch. We found our room a little too small in comparison to others we stayed in during our visit to SA but if we'd been really bothered we could have asked for an upgrade (particularly given the favourable exchange rate). Parking valets, restaurant staff and most of the front desk team were great.... More

This is an impressive boutique hotel right in the heart of Stellenbosch. Although it's the oldest hotel in the region, recent updates and quality service have made it extremely luxurious and comfortable for travelers. We stayed for one night, and really wish we had another few nights there. The rooms are spacious, clean, and modern, with excellent amenities. The bed... More
