Contemporary Style in South Africa's Oldest Town

Situated in the historic heart of Stellenbosch, one of the oldest towns in South Africa, is the deluxe boutique hotel Oude Werf Hotel. The hotel blends contemporary comfort and period-inspired ambience effortlessly and has done for two centuries as South Africa’s oldest continuously-operating hotel.

Great historical hotel

Miami, Florida

Great little hotel to experience the town. The staff was very pleasant, the rooms were modern and the breakfast was decent. Can’t beat for the price. Very close to everything you want to see. The staff were very helpful and made many good suggestions.

Quaint, stylish, excellent

Geneva, Switzerland

We spent a night at this historic hotel and it was excellent in all respects. This was my first stay at the Oude Werf, though I had eaten at its restaurant while a student at Stellenbosch. This hotel is a perfect blend between historic Cape Dutch and modern, with a lot of attention given to the details. The rooms are modern, stylish and well appointed and the breakfast buffet selection was good and fresh. A true gem and a part of Stellenbosch’s heritage. Highly recommended.
