Short description

Recommended for:
Food & wine | History & culture | Spa


Located in the idyllic Winelands town of Stellenbosh, Oude Werf is perfectly placed to explore the sprawling vineyards and Cape Dutch estates of South Africa's premier wine-making region. Guests can also venture further afield to explore the region's best restaurants, markets and festivals while the urban bustle of Cape Town is just 53km away.


The hotel's 58 rooms are spread across the property, either poolside, in the gardens or within the historic inn-house. Superior Rooms are located on floors over the hotel, overlooking the shady central garden and vine-covered courtyard. The rooms are open-plan and light, offering a luxury en-suite with shower, in either king or twin sized rooms. Rooms are decorated with subtle period-inspired details and contemporary styling; selected rooms feature a step out balcony or patio area with chairs. Other rooms include the Superior Plus with family rooms available and Deluxe Rooms.


Breakfast offers guests a daily continental buffet, featuring a generous selection of local fruits, cheeses, meats and patisserie, with an option of ordering traditional and signature dishes including cooked breakfast and eggs benedict. Lunch offers guests café style favourites, such as salads, pasta and sandwiches, and Chef Albert van der Loo explores the region's many flavours with dinner. The dinner menu offers a gourmet twist on Cape traditions, such as Vegetable Vape Malay Bobotie or Traditional Tomato Bredie.


Hotel facilities include a dip in the heated pool, a visit to the skin care and wellness facilities, renting bicycles and exclusive wine tasting at the 1802 restaurant.
