We stayed here for a couple of nights. It was a quaint hotel, though currently doing some renovations so only available for breakfasts. The location was right in the middle of the small town so we were able to walk around to find shopping, places to eat/drink etc. The rooms were lovely ... though the glass/opaque showers are not very...

The one thing that stood out for me at this hotel was the service - every single person we came into contact with at the hotel were helpful and friendly, and went the extra mile. It was really lovely to have that experience. At the time of our stay there were renovations still being finished, but we knew about it... More

Forty years ago when I was a student Oude Werf was a favourite for scones and tea. Since then I discovered it is so much more. Can't wait to see it once all the renovations have been completed. Lovely combination of really old structure, patches of 200 year old bare clay wall and new, innovative design, great food and service... More

We have stayed at this hotel before and it's usually really a very special experience. Unfortunately with the renovations at the moment things are a little chaotic. The rooms are fantastic and it's absolutely unique. I think once the renovations are done it will be amazing.

We booked having won a voucher for a night at this hotel despite the fact that they are still renovating. Being a saturday night the workmen were off the site and there was no noise or disturbance. The email booking was very good, as was the welcome. My car was parked for me on arrival, and we were taken to... More

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.

We stayed here for 1 night on our honeymoon and absolutely loved it! During the day we did a wine tour and enjoyed a amazing supper at Big Easy, highly recommend both! The rooms were clean, & unique. 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
