Oude Werf Hotel – Work Progress Update


Please note the building work below, previously announced in January 2014, has now been extended until 30th November 2014. Working hours daily are from 07h45 to 18h30.

Oude Werf Hotel is proud to announce the FINAL stage of our multi-million rand renovations, which, over the past 5 years has seen us massively extend and improve our offering to include our sought-after superior wing accommodation and facilities, from our rebranded Liefde Bistro to our beautiful new lounge and bar, which opened in November 2013.

Responses to our improvements from guests and trade alike have been enthusiastic – so much so that in late 2013 it was decided to ‘fast-track’ final building developments, to answer a complete guest offering.

And so, from 1 April to 31 October Oude Werf Hotel will complete…

  • the upgrade of the last 12 classic rooms to superior rooms
  • the addition of 13 new rooms, both superior and deluxe rooms
  • the long-awaited extension of our restaurant’s kitchen
  • the renewal of our much-loved Liefde Bistro
  • and the installation of a lift in the main hotel foyer area, to afford our guests easiest access to all above-ground rooms

This means a temporary closure for the months of May, June & July.

We will still be taking bookings during this period and office hours are 08h00– 17h00. The Hotel remains open and trading until 30 April, reopening 1 August. The initial work during April will not affect guest areas or facilities.

Oude Werf Hotel will keep you regularly updated on progress throughout this building period.The estimated date of completion is 31 October 2014.

We thank you for your patience as we endeavour to evolve for our guests, an Oude Werf Hotel experience that, as one of Stellenbosch’s oldest and most loved hotels, has been centuries in the making.
