Stellenbosch, South Africa

Make Oude Werf Hotel part of your safari from

Established in 1802, Oude Werf is South Africa's oldest and most historic hotel and has defined hospitality and fine dining for centuries. Our guests enjoy the wonders of the Cape Winelands from the repose of our luxurious accommodation, situated in the historical core of the university town of Stellenbosch, only 50km from Cape Town, 25km from the sea and surrounded by beautiful mountains. Stellenbosch is famous as the premier wine region of South Africa.

Located on vibrant Church Street, Oude Werf retains the graceful ambience of Georgian style throughout. Soft hues and antique furniture have been tastefully aligned with the comforts of modern living to create a calm haven from which to base your exploration of Stellenbosch.

The hotel consists of 44 en suite bedrooms and 5 apartments (self catering,optional) which are individually styled with antiques collected over the years. Modern facilities, and staff who pride themselves on their friendly, personal and professional service, make each visit an enjoyable and memorable one.

The landmark 1802 Restaurant - now a beautifully redesigned 'modern-meets-vintage' bistro, with vine- covered courtyard and indoor fireside - is called "Liefde" ("Love", in Afrikaans). It serves homey, Cape classics, made with love…and a contemporary gourmet twist from chef, Albert van der Loo, matched with vintages from our world-famous wine region.

Sit back and sip sundowners in the tranquility of a lovely verdant garden, or bask in the sun besides the pool. For those who feel a bit more energetic, there are signature golf courses in close proximity to the town, guided historical village walks, wine tours and a variety of other activities that can be arranged from the hotel. A myriad shops, museums, art galleries and beautiful examples of Cape Dutch architecture are within easy walking distance of the hotel.

We first reached out to two agencies when we were looking to book our trip to South Africa. They didn't really answer our questions and took days to respond. One actually stopped responding altogether and we gave up after 3-4 follow ups.
