Oude Werf Hotel

Contemporary style in historic Stellenbosch

Situated in the heart of Stellenbosch, one of the oldest towns in South Africa, is the deluxe Oude Werf Hotel.

While Oude Werf's hospitality spans an impressive three centuries – making it South Africa’s longest continuously-operating hotel – it is far from dated. The boutique hotel effortlessly blends contemporary style and modern comfort with period-inspired features: the 58 rooms are spacious and airy with a relaxed ambience which extends throughout the complex. 

The restaurant, with its substantial fireplace and vine-covered courtyard area, serves an enticing menu of Cape dishes with a gourmet twist as well as a delightful afternoon tea.

Stellenbosch is recognised globally for its wine, so sit back and enjoy a generous glass of the region's finest vintage with dinner or whilst unwinding at the poolside or in the lounge.

This hotel feels like coming home, friendly reception, John is the guy you adres to fix you anything you want, he will provide it. Wine estate visit, no problem, 15 minutes later you are on your way with a trusted guide/taxidriver(thnx Campbel). The hotel itself is very nice and authentic with a hotel staff that does their best to be at your service without being pushy. Nothing is too much asked and the service is flawless. Harty and high quality breakfast with a very good service. We shall be back here that’s for sure! See you next year John(and Ronny thnx for being such a great driver)
