This was my first time to South Africa. I have travelled to the many places all over the world. I told the manageress Jeanine that this will be the first time and I dont know what to expect or what to do. She helped me plan the whole week. She booked us in Avalon a very cosy house with a... More

We arrived quite late, 10pm, there was NO-ONE there to open or welcome us. Eventually a guard arrived after we waited in the dark road for 30 mins. We found that Alluvia was a disappointment for our two night stay in April. We booked the honeymoon sweet "Clovelly". It was spacious but but a bit shabby, more like 3 *.... More

It is such a shame that the place is run so poorly because it has such potential. The grounds and scenery are amazing and it could really be a gem if someone cared about making it a success. We stayed here for 2 days and now I realize why they had rooms available last minute. The welcome was fine, the... More

We took a special offer for a romantic night away from home and it ended up an expensive nightmare. We arrived at closed gates with a non working intercom where we had to use our mobiles to try and track down assistance to enter the estate. When we were eventually let in the welcome was cold an impersonal that reminded... More

This was supposed to be a romantic night away after my hubby returned from a overseas work contract of 3 months.... what a disappointment. I would have been better going to Tehran and seeing him there. The place itself is kinda ok... BUT.... On arriving the gate was not answered... so we called reception... young girl opened the gate and... More

What was supposed to be a romantic weekend turned out to be everything but that. To start off, the bookings was a nightmare as nobody ever returns emails and we had to continuously phone and speak to the answering machine...that also doesn't return calls. Once we arrived it was a beautiful sunny winters day and the rooms were beautiful and... More

I attended a wedding in the Helshoogte Valley in Stellenbosch in April 2014. I only needed a spot to sleep as it was an early wedding which went on late into the night. I was very grateful to have been given a discount as the rooms are quite pricey and was given a lovely room to stay in with a... More

We booked 2 nights early April 2014. Avalon house was allocated to us. We were pleasantly surprised how spacious the house was. Each room had it's own special character!! The gardens are neatly kept and scenery outside is spectacular! The television was a bit small, but hey we had a fireplace and it was an cold evening, so guess what... More

We had booked a night at Alluvia during the month of early April this year. When we arrived we had to wait about 5 min for someone to open the main gate. We were then greeted and checked in to our room and given our key and remote for our room and the main gate. That evening we went to... More
