      Oude Werf Hotel

      200 Years of Elegant Hospitality in Stellenbosch, South Africa’s Premier Wine Region

      Established in 1802, Oude Werf is South Africa's oldest and most historic hotel and has defined hospitality and fine dining for centuries. Guests enjoy the wonders of the Cape Winelands from the repose of luxurious accommodation, situated in the historical core of the university town of Stellenbosch, just over 30 miles from Cape Town, 15 miles 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, which are individually styled with antiques collected over the years. All rooms have satellite TV, DSTV, tea & coffee making facilities, air conditioning, bathrobe, bathroom amenities, hairdryer, high speed Internet access, safe, telephone, work desk with lamp. Mini bar stocked on request and non-smoking rooms are available. 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 the world-famous wine region. Sit back and sip sundowners in the tranquility of a lovely verdant garden, or bask in the sun beside 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 of shops, museums, art galleries and beautiful examples of Cape Dutch architecture are within easy walking distance of the hotel.
