Tons of construction going on, starting at 8:30a. Really disappointing as the rest of the experience was fairly positive.

Central friendly hotel with pool

Posted Feb 17, 2014
Pros: Central location in town with a pool. The staff are very helpful and attentive and it is good to see familiar faces on return.
Location: Central to town and close to golf and vineyards.
We have been visiting Stellenbosch for a few years and keep returning to this hotel. They have a great variety of rooms to suit all needs. Despite being central, once in the hotel it is really quiet and calm.

Spacious apartment; great location.

Posted Feb 7, 2014
Pros: The size of the two bedroom apartment and its location downtown in the old part of Stellenbosch.
Cons: More modern TVs and more more glassware in the apartment.
Location: Great location for exploring old Stellenbosch on foot and easy access to the main routes going to the wine districts.
We arrived at the hotel on a weekend that included the Stellenbosch Wine Festival and students return to the Univsersity. The staff checked us in efficiently and parked our vehicle in a secure underground space. We were shown to our two bedroom apartment which was spacious, clean and easily accessible. The breakfast was great and plentiful. The reception staff allowed his to use the office PC when it was needed.

Disappointed

Posted Aug 16, 2013
Went there based on a recommendation of a trusted friend and was disappointed. All rooms are non- smoking but room has a definite odour. Most frustrating was tepid temperature of shower. Location is fantastic. Currently doing renovations which may have impacted experience.

Amazing Service, Stunning Room

Posted Jan 14, 2013
Pros: Fabulous service.
Location: Right in the middle of Stellenbosch.
This hotel has amazing service. There is one guy who seems to do everything, John, and he runs while doing it! It's a litle crazy, but impressive. The valet car parking is fabulous, and the restaurant setting has something for everyone: outside dining under a vine-covered pergola, or inside fancier seating. We were in a room in the old part of the hotel and it was stunning: old squeeky (but not too squeeky) hardwood floors, large room, beautiful furniture, fabulous mattress. The bathroom is uber-modern, with frosted glass doors, a huge bathtub and wonderful shower. And it's smack in the middle of Stellenbosch, with bistros across the street, down the street, around the corner, but also conveniently just a few blocks away from a supermarket.

Flawless and very friendly

Posted Mar 28, 2011
5 days at D'Ouwe Werf and nothing but the highest praise for the hotel and its staff. A wonderful place in the heart of old Stellenbosch but still calm and tranquil, and staff who gave us the warmest welcome and met every request promptly and with a smile. Really can't rate it highly enough.
