This hotel really is a very good option when looking for a place to stay in Stellenbosch. Extremely centrally located - we were able to walk everywhere we needed to. The only time we needed our car was to visit the wine farms. Plenty great hotels and wine bars within easy walking distance. The hotel itself is upmarket. Big rooms...

This hotel is set in e really colonial town and when you arrive it is set halfway up a tree filled street. We were greeted at the door and the concierge took our car and parked it for us in the secure underground car park. The reception area is elegant and the staff really helpful. Our room was lovely, king...

We had not intended to stay in Stellenbosch but due to a late change of plans we had a spare night. Using internet we booked only one night in advance but managed to get a room. The hotel is on a busy street but excellent and efficient valet parking is provided. The usual warm welcome awaited us and we were...

Our family spent a weekend at the Oude Werf Hotel recently. Positives: 1. The location is perfect, with easy access to the quaint streets, restaurants, etc. We have stayed in Stellenbosch many times before, and this hotel is right up there in terms of its location. 2. Valet parking really helps, since the underground parking garage and street front is...

We stayed here for six nights at the end of January . The hotel is ideally situated for all restaurants and shops. Our bedroom no.127 was very spacious with a large balcony overlooking the courtyard and pool. It was kept spotlessly clean at all time. Just a minor problem with not enough coat hangers but this was soon rectified with...

This newish hotel is located in a converted warehouse right in the middle of Stellenbosch, but you need to watch carefully for traces of the original building as the new build makes up most of the hotel. The new rooms are bright and modern, with nice king beds, furniture and bathrooms. Perhaps a little small however – viz our deluxe...

Really nice hotel right in the centre of Stellenbosch- couldn't be a better location. Stayed in a deluxe room which had a great combination of old and new. The bedroom was decorated in a traditional style with a glass wall to possibly the biggest bathroom I've ever seen! On the negative side they could be better organised at breakfast -...

We stayed here for one night in January 2017. The hotel is both quaint and modern in a central location, ideal for exploring the small and pretty town. There is also free parking which is managed by car parking valets. Our room was very comfortable with tasteful decor and a modern bathroom. A very high standard of cleanliness and a...

Stayed at this, the oldest hotel in South Africa for 3 nights. Loved it. The best of locations to see everything this beautiful town has to offer. Our room was beautiful, light and airy and overlooked the lovely pool area. Staff were so friendly. Will definitely come back here. Car valet service excellent. A few things that could be improved...

We enjoyed two good nights in this lovely hotel. Great location in the centre of Stellenbosch, surrounded by shops and good restaurants, but not at all noisy (and we were on the first floor facing the road). Very comfortable beds, good modern bathroom and lovely helpful staff. Breakfast was fine and plentiful and the fresh fruit especially delicious, though it...
