    The staff, facilities and location was perfect for my short business stay.

    Superb

    Excellent location. Very close to restaurants, bars and shops. Also within walking distance of the University. Very friendly and helpful staff. Off-street parking, which is useful in an area in which it is often difficult to find parking. We have stayed here a number of times and the rooms are all different, which is part of the charm, but some are nicer or lighter or bigger than others. The breakfast, which is included in the price, is excellent and offers a wide choice.

    The staff were friendly and helpful. The room was larger than expected, with a fireplace and lovely four poster bed. The food at the restaurant was excellent, and the breakfast was very good.

    The TV reception in the room wasn't very good.

    The room : we stayed in no 2 and it was beautifully appointed. Great bathroom :) ... would have liked to see the interior of the other rooms but sadly there was no time.

    Quaint hotel, friendly staff, good restaurant, nice courtyard, great location.

    Would have liked to know that staying in area where renovations seem to be in progress. And that it's not in main hotel, meaning that if it was raining, we would have been been wet and climbing up and down wet, slippery stairs.

    Location-walked around the town at night & travelled the Winelands during the day. Also, the breakfast was very nice

    We booked in the oak apartments but they gave us a standard room, We were only staying for 2 nights & not planning on spending much time in the room, so did not complain, But I was suprised that they did not mention the change to us, Would like electricqal outlets in the bathroom for hair dryer etc..

    Superb

    D'Ouwe werf is beautifully located in the middle of bustling and historic Stellenbosch. There are plenty of nice restaurants in the area and you can explore the town very easily on foot, starting at your hotel. free parking is available. The concierge, John, is fantastic in offering advice and help with your trip. The hotel is great value for money. It is located in the oldest inn of South Africa, in a beautiful Cape Dutch style house and has spacious rooms with very nice Cape Dutch furniture. Breakfast is succulent and served on a nice and big courtyard. Also, the relaxing area near the pool is very nice if you want to sit down after exploring the beautiful town and its surroundings.

    The pool is very small and cold

    Very friendly stuff and helpful people for the garage

    Internet. I was there for work and slept at the first floor where the internet coverage is pratically absent.Just adding a wireless router would solve the issue.

    Fabulous

    The staff were friendly and efficient and worked hard to fulfil all requests. The location is an excellent base from which to explore the historic town centre of foot.

    Our rooms were in the more modern annexe which didn't have the character and charm of the main section of the hotel.

    The staff was extraordinary friendly and the service fantastic. Excellent location 2 minutes from everything in the town centre and yet no noise. Very good atmosfere.

    The garden restaurant was shadowed by overhanging wine plants and trees, but leaves etc fell down onto the tables etc, wich lowered the comfort. Maybe a net under the trees could catch the leaves?

    The staff were lovely, and even though on arrival we discovered mass renovations, they did everything to make our stay comfortable.

    Room 7 was very noisy onto the courtyard and people were getting the breakfast ready very early, waking us.

    Beautiful & historic hotel with very friendly, helpful staff. Very centrally located. Hotel was being renovated while we stayed there but this wasn't at all an inconvenience unless you make it one. Breakfast was fantastic.

    Fabulous

    The location in the centre of Stellenbosch was excellent. All the staff were very good, including immediately transferring us to another room when we had problems with ours (see below).

    The hotel was noisy, not just because of renovations (which is why we had to swap rooms and which will be going on until mid December) but also because the wooden floors, ceiling and other fixtures amplify every sound. I know it's a historic building, but some more soft furnishings might deaden the noise a bit. The first room we had was uninhabitable because of renovation noise and I don't think it should have been let, especially at £100 per night. It was impossible to spend any time in it at all during the day because of the deafening hammering and drilling from the other side of the wall. Even without that, it was just above reception and there's a lot of coming and going late at night and early in the morning.
