What our visitors say about us

Lovely hotel in the centre of town. Bars, restaurants and coffee shops on door step. Staff very friendly and accommodating. They organised a wine tour at the last minute for us which was great. Room was lovely and very comfortable.

If in Stellenbosch … you need to stay in the centre. This place is walking distance from loads of restaurants and bars. It’s a nice hotel with very friendly staff, amazing breakfast. The rooms a adequate. If you are expecting 6 star then no place in Stellenbosch will meet your needs. You are in a colonial kinda town surrounded by the most stunning wines – this place ticks all the boxes.

The Oude Werf is perfect! It is situated in the middle of Stellenbosch and is a prime location to explore and eat out. Everything about this hotel was excellent – the staff, food, location, rooms and cleanliness. I would recommend this hotel to all types of travellers – solo, couples, business and family.

Andrew from New Zealand; 26 October 2019

Very well located, load of different restaurants in the road – as close as opposite the road and others a short walk. Beautiful mix of old and new. The room was modern with a great lay-out.

Right in the center of Stellenbosch – you wouldn’t even need a car. It has really spacious rooms and amazing breakfast. Also very helpful in finding great restaurants!
