South Africa’s oldest and most historic hotel, which has welcomed guests since 1802. Located right in the centre of Stellenbosch, it retains all its Georgian grandeur and elegance.
Guests can choose to stay in one of the rooms or opt for a self-catering experience in one of the five apartments – whichever you choose, the welcome and service is exceptional. Guests can relax in beautifully-planted gardens or by the swimming pool after either a day’s touring or a leisurely stroll around the streets of Stellenbosch.
Excellent value-for-money hotel situated right in the middle of Stellenbosch – great for those wanting to wine and dine, but not drive, in the evenings. As South Africa’s oldest inn it is even worth a quick coffee stop for non-guests to have a look at its historic buildings.
Considered as one of the best restaurants in town, 1802 is well-known for its combination of local and Continental specialties, and a delightfully relaxed atmosphere. It boasts two enchanting dining options: during winter you can please your palate by the cosy fireplace, while in summer, you will chill out in a beautiful vine-covered courtyard. A selection of the finest South Africa wines, will be the perfect addition to this superb dining experience.
At Oude Werf Hotel you will be spoilt for choice, given the 4 upper types of accommodation provided by the property:
Oude Werf Hotel is a child-friendly property and warmly welcomes families with children.
