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...

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.

The location was perfect, it was in a very walkable part of town and close to the University. The room we had was very nice, with a super comfortable bed. Breakfast was included each day, and it included a wide variety...

All in all an enjoyable...

What a great hotel. The location is perfect in the heart of Stellenbosch, the room we had (124) was really special and the service was excellent. In a town as busy as Stellenbosch, it's tricky to find parking but the Oude Werf provides onsite valet parking - what a bonus. Our room was tastefully furnished and really had the "boutique"...
