Great hotel in the middle of Stellenbosch. Rooms are modern in an older building. Pool is small but that's really the only down side. Food is great and service superb. All of the staff we met were cheerful and friendly. Don't miss the chance for a glimpse of the church archiology just below the dining room.

We stopped by for lunch this time. Vine-covered outside seating with the tranquility of water-features gurgling in the background. The service was friendly and efficient and the food was great as usual. The baked cheese cake brought back memories of university afternoons approx 30 years ago!!!

The hotel facilties are modern with very good and obliging staff. I cannot recommend it enough.

This very old building on Church St has been successfully updated into a very stylish modern hotel. The room with small terrace in the pool courtyard was very comfortable incorporating a glass bathroom and many attractive features. There was a huge bed with excellent linen. Breakfasts in the shaded open air dining area were a delight. Levels of service throughout...

The hotel location is fantastic as it is in the centre of Stellenbosch, simply two minutes from all central locations. The reception and restaurant staff are very friendly and the architecture is very quaint and cleverly mixed with modern integration. The courtyard and restaurant are very cozy, we had breakfast three times and dinner once, the dinner choices are little...

We were lucky enough to stay here for three nights. The location is ideal, rooms lovely and spacious and great service. The pool area is perfect to relax at although it does get shaded in for a lot of the day. Restaurants, cafes and bars are all minutes aways. Would definitely stay here again. The hotel organised a brilliant wine...

What a comprehensive review. The point you raise about electrical outlets is one I will definitely look into. While we offer all contemporary conveniences, we are also the oldest continuously running establishment in South Africa. This dichotomy is reflected in our award-winning combination of old and new architecture. To acknowledge this rich heritage, we offer both modern and traditional décor...

We were thrilled with our stay at the Oude Werf Hotel in late December 2016/early January 2017. Not only is it in a great location in the center of town, but it is elegantly appointed, the rooms are generously sized, and the staff is quite friendly and able to assist on matters from running routes to vineyard reservations. We also...
