The Townhouse


As a family that we have made the difficult decision to close the Townhouse hotel as of 31 March 2021.

This signifies the end of a Townhouse era in our family history. The Townhouse hotel was launched in 1971 by Francois and Kitty Petousis and was followed by the iconic Vineyard Hotel in Newlands in 1981. The next generation of Petousis’ continued to build on their parents’ vision, entrepreneurial spirit, values, passion and unique approach to hospitality, launching the Oude Werf in Stellenbosch in 2007.

We thank our wonderful and committed Townhouse team who have played such an integral part in the Petousis family story, many of whom have been with us for decades and have invested years of service to delivering our vision and creating memorable experiences for our guests.

We look forward to welcoming you to The Vineyard in Newlands and Oude Werf in Stellenbosch soon!
