Oude Werf

Located in the historic heart of the Cape Winelands’ capital of Stellenbosch, this family–owned, intimate hotel blends contemporary comfort and period-inspired ambiance. Situated on a national heritage site of the country’s first church – which coined the name ‘the old churchyard’, Oude Werf on Church Street is South Africa’s oldest continuously-operating hotel that has been offering guests hospitality for over two centuries.

It’s a highly rated spot. Extremely accessible. Central but calm. Safe to independently wander out from. With helpful staff and an old fashioned attitude to service. Now a luxury 58-room hotel with all the comforts of 21st-century amenities, its rooms overlook a shady central garden, or a quiet, vine-covered courtyard. Guests can relax at the outdoor swimming pool surrounded by a charming garden.

Ultra-modern fixtures are combined with subtle period-inspired details in light, open-plan rooms offering contemporary styling that are located over three floors. While the Oude Werf Restaurant offers traditional, homemade as well as contemporary gourmet dishes – and scrumptious breakfasts.
