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. 

  • Lovely outdoor swimming pool for a refreshing dip
  • Excellent restaurant
  • Luxurious, comfortable rooms
  • In a great central location in Stellenbosch

Noisy!

There's so much to admire about this hotel as it has a lot of great qualities, centrally located, wonderful staff, beautiful room, comfortable bed BUT none of this matters because it was impossible to sleep during our 2 night stay here. We were given a room overlooking the main street. Stellenbosch is a surprisingly lovely town. People will generally drink late into the night, which results in noisy people on Church Street shouting in the early hours of the morning. Such is the lack of sound proofing in the rooms that I could here the hotel worker raking up leaves each night from the street around 3-4am. We were only staying 2 nights, I was up from 2am on the first night due to drunken people on the street shouting and the noise continued through one thing or another preventing me from sleeping. We'd an early trip to Franchhoek the next day so left without mentioning this to front office. We'd to leave the wine tram after only a few hours in Franchhoek as I was so tired. We would be leaving early the next morning so just went to bed and hoped the noise from the previous night was simply because it was Saturday night. Unfortunately it was a similar story on the Sunday night. So once again we'd to travel to the airport without much sleep for an early flight to Port Elizabeth. I'm disappointed to write this review as there was a lot to like, and the staff especially were great but they simply shouldn't have rooms overlooking the main street with zero sound proofing. A premier inn can guarantee a good night sleep, something this 4 star hotel can't do, which makes all other aspects of the hotel worthless.

Wonderful niche hotel

Boone, North Carolina

Loved this hotel and ca't wait to come back. The hotel is located in close proximity to good restaurants and nightlife. Stellenbosch was unlike everything I expected. The staff is friendly and my room was very comfortable.
