…to Oude Werf in the historic heart of the Cape Winelands’ capital of Stellenbosch. Here, on the site of our country’s first church – which coined our name: ‘the old churchyard’ – our intimate 58-room hotel blends contemporary comfort and period-inspired ambiance with the same easy, personal care we’ve offered guests for two centuries as South Africa’s oldest continuously-operating hotel. Welcome to our Stellenbosch landmark. Please come in!

“This is a lovely hotel with real character right in the centre of Stellenbosch. The staff are very helpful and organised transport for us at short notice for a day trip to the wine estates and the rooms, food and drink were excellent.”

“On our trip of the Garden Route we stayed in this fantastic hotel which has great history. We were welcomed by friendly staff, checked in and shown to our room which was beautiful. With spending time in the hotel you could feel the warmth around you. On walking around Stellenbosch (a university town) you could feel the buzz! Breakfast the next morning was just perfect and staff so friendly! We really enjoyed our 2 nights stay in the hotel and we definitely would return!”

“Arriving at Oude Werf after fighting through Cape Town traffic on a Friday afternoon, we were met with smiles from our valet parking assistant and porter. All stress floated away immediately and the check in was seamless and friendly. Our room was stunning with a private balcony looking out onto a shady and peaceful courtyard. Modern fittings and touches contrasted the age of the building. The position of the hotel is one of its big draw cards, in the centre of the beautiful and famous Church Street, so we just walked everywhere. Breakfasts were amazing and my wife received a Mother’s Day rose on the Sunday which was a nice touch. Will definitely like to go back.”

“We decided to stay over on Sunday night as we were off to go on honeymoon the next day and needed a place to settle for the evening. We were warmly welcomed at reception and we even dropped the line “we are on honeymoon” to that we were welcomed at our hotel room with MCC and a beautiful dessert platter in what felt like just a few minutes. We had a lovely evening and delicious buffet breakfast the next morning, which was included. We will definitely be back again!”
