Exhibiting elegant colonial charm, D'Ouwe Werf is rich with the past and surrounded by beautiful mountain scenery. The oldest hotel in South Africa, D'Ouwe Werf was built in 1802 and carries with it the spirit of over two centuries of history. Found in the heart of Stellenbosch on Church Street, guests can enjoy some of the country's finest restaurants, with award winning status, and seemingly endless vineyards. Relax in the comfort of the hotel grounds with a sundowner in the garden or with a cooling dip in the pool. The restaurant at D'Ouwe Werf is also well worth a visit, serving delicious African cuisine.

The hotel expertly juxtaposes Georgian panache with modern refinement and amenities. The property's 5 apartments and 44 rooms are all beautifully appointed with vintage styling and dotted with antiques amassed over time. For guests simply wishing for a place to stay, the apartments are an excellent choice, being the hotel's self-catering options.

Beautiful hotel and nice central location, but staff was not very friendly and tried too hard to sell "extras" that were not wanted (restaurant and wine tour).
