We returned for the 4th or 5th time to Jan & Annemarie's Allegria guesthouse past November. Over the years the place has become our home in the Stellenbosch winelands. It is located just outside of town, but that is its advantage too as the Allegria boasts a fantastic view over Stellenbosch. It's always nice to see Jan & Annemarie again... More

We booked this after reading the reviews and seeing pictures. It does not tell the whole story. When we first turned into the entry drive, we actually stopped to be sure we were in the right place. It was uneven, patchy ground leading into what seemed like an un-kept drive. It winded us through more bumpy drive until we stopped... More

I stayed for business and owners were friendly and accommodating. The rooms are beautiful and comfortable with air conditioning which helped as it was very hot. Bathrooms were beautiful with shower and bath. The view was stunning to see the beauty of the Stellenbosch mountains and wine lands. Will definitely go back!

We spent a weekend at the guesthouse for a wedding on a nearby property. Rooms are neat, clean and well kept. The view is gorgeous and the grounds immaculate. Service from the couple is also great and easy access to come and go as you please. We stayed in the smaller rooms but the suites available really looked wonderful with... More

The hotel really is a picturesque as it looks on the photos. It is situated slightly outside Stellenbosch but within easy access of all the vineyards and restaurants. The owners Jan and Anne were so friendly and very knowledgeable on the area. The room was very comfortable and the breakfasts delicious. We had a great time and would highly recommend... More

My husband and I decided to go to the Cape 3 days earlier than planned and the hotel which we had booked had no vacancies for those dates. We booked the Allegria on line and drove from Johannesburg and arrived at 10pm the same night and Jan the owner was on hand to meet us despite the late hour. The... More

For the last 5 years or so we have been at the Allegria every time we came to South Africa. It is the cosiest and one of the most beautiful guest houses in this area, the situation among the vineyards with a breathtaking view of the Winelands, the rooms are generous and lovely, a Tuscan touch and earthy colors, our...

Friendly and professional welcome by Annemarie. Very nice building with very large and cosy central section which serves as breakfast area amongst others. It gives out to a large pool area with views on the surrounding vinyards. (Shiraz owned by the Allegria owners) Nice rooms with all necessary amenities. Free WIFI ! ! Peace and quiet in this place although... More

I cannot imagine a better place to go to for exploring the Western Cape. It is a beautiful house, the rooms are absolutely great, the view over Stellenbosch is stunning and Annemarie, Jan and their staff - as always - have gone all the way making us feel perfectly at home.

We have stayed at Allegria three times over the past 5 years - it's a great place to enjoy all that the Cape Winelands has to offer. Jan and Annemarie are really good hosts and maintain their very high standards. We have stayed three times in the "elephant" room - some of the others are a bit smaller. Breakfast is... More
