We loved the genuineness of Oude Wellington - the ambiance was unpretentious but also very classy. Breakfast was beautiful, our stable-bedroom was super and the host engaging. A good base for exploring the winelands.

Dear Susanchen You have been the nicest guests one can wish for as a guesthouse in the countryside. You saw all with open eyes and admiration. It was an absolute pleasure to have you as guests. Conversations with you two were inspiring and reflective of what traveling is all about. It surely has triggered my wanderlust again. Thank you for...

My wife and I thoroughly enjoy our night away at Oude Wellington. The facilities are great and the food at the restaurant is absolutely amazing. It is the perfect place to spoil someone special. The view of the surrounding mountains is breath-taking.

Dear guests Thank you for your time to write a review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and saw what I intended to create: a warm romantic place with space to be on your own or share with like minded people the more public spaces like swimming pool deck or our restaurant.

Dear Reino and Helene You had been a pleasure to host. Colin will be delighted to read, that you liked his breakfast. Not all guests are as considered as we wish them to be.

Dear Bryan My sincere apologies for the overlooked cutlery stains. Our cleaning staff is deeply sorry and promised to apply more attention when removing cutlery from the dishwasher.

This was expensive for what you get. Our aircon didn't work. The bathroom had a big damp problem and smelled bad. There was a coffee machine in the room but no coffee. Breakfast was also pretty bleak.

Oude Wellington is one of the ordinal wineries in Wellington with original Cape Dutch buildings surrounded by fields and vines. The Deluxe room was spacious and comfortable.

We really liked staying at Oude Wellington and appreciated the old original fittings, frames, deco, all in an immaculate condition. After hearing of our room having no shower but only a tub I voiced my dissappointment to the owner, his reaction could have been a bit more positive and constructive, perhaps offering bubble bath or similar...instead he was a bit...

Had some nice days on this old farm. Like the atmosphere from the old buildings. Showering was sometimes a little tricky, because of the waterpressure, but no big problem for us. Nice that there is a cosy, lovely restaurant on this Estate with good food. Bought wonderful brandy, which they make on this farm.

Dear guests Thank you for your time to write a few words about Oude Wellington. We can only learn from our guest's comments and interaction. We have meanwhile improved water pressure, but it can still happen if several rooms draw water at the same time. Keep in mind we are not connected to municipal water. With kind regards Rolf
