The Oude Werf was a hotel full of history however this was well balanced with a modern touch. The staff were very professional and in particular Mario was very attentive and helpful. The hotel is in the centre of town and very close to a range of restaurants and other amenities. The deluxe room had a number of original features,... More

I was blown away when I walked into this hotel. It was very modern and sleek. The hotel room was gorgeous. The view from the room was wonderful. Saw several squirrels running up the tree. The hotel staff was very friendly. Always a kind word and always there to open the door. They even gave us some port wine. This... More

Touted as an historic hotel I was a little disappointed when shown our very contemporary room. That being said, we had a nice room, service was great, staff was helpful. I did have to ask about the historical aspects of the hotel and was then given a tour of 2 rooms. Great location with many options for dining.

Reception staff incredibly helpful and friendly. Rooms spacious, super clean and lovely beds. The location is perfect for getting an authentic feel of Stellenbosch. Do visit Helena's across the street and Jardine's around the corner.

The hotel was established in 1802 and is South Africas oldest and most historic hotel. As soon as you walked into the reception you could tell this with the understated glamour and old fashioned elegant feel. Our room wasnt quite ready on arrival so we had to drop our bags off and explore the area (not really any hardship). The... More

We stayed for 2 nights and wished we stayed longer. The rooms, both the quaint and modern ones, are very well and comfortably furnished. The bathrooms are lovely. Everywhere was nice, clean, luxury but cosy. We thought the rooms facing the pool and on upper floor much better, but really it doesn't matter. They're all good. The breakfast spread was... More
