Oude Werf Hotel
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.
The hotel expertly juxtaposes Georgian panache with modern refinement and amenities. 58 deluxe en suite accommodations are all beautifully appointed with vintage styling and dotted with antiques amassed over time. All rooms types feature air conditioning, satellite TV, high speed internet, quaint furnishings and a mini bar.
The surrounds are waiting to be explored with fantastic golf courses and guided historical tours nearby. Wine tours are naturally a huge attraction, with the chance to sample one of South Africa's most celebrated exports; ideal for the budding wine connoisseur.
