What our visitors say about us

The hotel is well positioned in the center of Stellenbosch. Staff were super helpful and the rooms large and extremely comfortable.

We stayed in the Hotel for 4 nights in a superior double room in the new tract of the building. Service, friendliness and response time were excellent, so we enjoyed our time very much.

Excellent location right in downtown. The entire hotel is a mixture between ‚old‘ and ‚new‘ which perfectly fits into the overall picture of Stellenbosch. All personal friendly and committed and made the stay very enjoyable.

The whole experience was amazing- I have stayed in so many luxury hotels worldwide but the combination of fantastic facilities and the best staff I have ever experienced, made it unforgettable. The hotel is the oldest running hotel in SA and although the region’s heritage runs through all that Oude Werf does, the hotel is certainly not stuck in the past. Luxury rooms, tasty food at any time of the day including elegant and opulent breakfast buffet with a great variety of choice, innovative drinks, peaceful and relaxing pool area, stylish furnished common areas and a location in the the heart of Stellenbosch close to all restaurants, bars, shops and sites of interest, what a vibrant mix and at the same time quiet and relaxing. The staff is though what makes the difference. Such a smooth and seamless process, not only very professional attitude but real passion and energy to make a stay unforgettable, they are truly interested in every single guest and so attentive- never seen this before. I can praise everyone I met there from the super friendly and helpful reception desk staff who made every our wish possible and so easy- from transport, to SPA treatments, late check out or local recommendations, never had to ask twice, very proactive approach too, through the breakfast staff who greeted and served us as we were the most important guests ever with high energy and love, to the bell boys , bar keeper and room maids who treated everyone with so much warmth that I had the feeling coming home once going through the hotel door. Thank you for this experience!
