What our visitors say about us

We had a wonderful stay at the Oude Werf Hotel. From our arrival, the staff were just so helpful and nice. I would particularly like to point out the porter Gene who welcomed us. He was just the nicest, most helpful guy you could meet! All of the staff bent over backwards to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. We would love to go back sometime!

Have you ever walked into a Hotel and not want to leave? It’s the first time it happened to me at the Oude Werf. We were booked for two nights and stayed for four. The oldest Hotel in South Africa is simply charming. I love the decor and the rooms. The location bang in the middle of Stellenbosch was simply perfect to explore the town, to pop out and pop in as needed. The food was really good too, we had a lunch and dinner and both were super. I can’t wait to go back.

Warm welcome and friendly service. Great, central location, convenient for local sightseeing. Valet parking was extremely useful as there were parking wardens everywhere. Special thanks to the maintenance man who retrieved some jewellery from the sink u-bend!

We spent a week here in December….great establishment, awesome little town…Stellenbosch is full of surprises and one needs to spend time there to really appreciate it…Church St is littered with a great ensemble of bistros and interesting shops…Hotel is an eclectic mix of the old and new…a job well done…Breakfast is included which is a bonus….what really impressed was the fact that the breakfast buffet included Mackerel, Hake, Trout and Salmon, this amongst the usual array of food options..staff were attentive and friendly, a great week!
