Just one of the nicest place we have stayed. Lots of space, stunning views and breakfast delivered in a picnic basket!! Wonderful. Ideal for visiting both Stellenbosch and Franschhoek We will definitely be back.

I stayed for two nights during a mid-week special in November. I was fortunate enough to be upgraded to a luxury suite wich was really amazing. I appreciated the little details like nougat on the pillows and sherry in the room. The view was really amazing with my room overlooking the mountains and the valley. The setting was completed with a bottle of their Cabernet Sauvignon which I thoroughly enjoyed!

we had the most awesome experience at alluvia yesterday afternoon. We rocked up there, unannounced and asked if we may have a wine tasting. The friendly lady at reception gladly let us in, and presented their wines to us. What really impressed me the most was all the friendly faces of the staff. Me really felt part of the family and cannot wait for our next visit!!!

Went on a special citysliker voucher deal. The day was great sunny and hot. Arrived after 12h00 and obtained our basket which had to be booked 48 hrs in advance..Upon opening the basket boy were we disapointed. The basket cost us on a City slicker special R229 and what we got wasnt worth R199, given that this was a special deal. The only nice item was the wine an average Chenin Blanc. There was no cooler for the wine . A loaf of white bread some processed Checkers meat ie ham salami and some other unknown processed meat a few pieces of fruit and a fig preserve for each and a piece of konfyt and apack of crackers plus a pate. The ultramel desert was not worth even mentioning. No salad or smoked chicken or even water. The picnic area was ok if no one else booked ,as there is only one tree and limited seating on upright chairs. No tiolet no tap., sorry . Loungers with no mattrasses.x4. Enough said.

What a beautiful, peaceful wine estate!

Our chalet overlooked the mountains covered in snow and the lake which had attracted many different species of birds. We could see the sheep grazing about 100 metres away in a paddock and a few lambs came a bit closer.

When booking I enquired about restaurants and was referred to three different ones with a short and accurate (as we later discovered) description of them. The reception was lovely, the chalet was tastefully decorated with a huge bed. We even got our own slippers! The bathroom was lovely (separate basins which was very nice) and there were bath salts and bubble bath to choose from too. Alluvia even provided bathrobes.
The chalet was lovely and warm with its own fireplace, if we chose to use it. There was a bar fridge with all sorts of drinks to choose from, not all alcoholic, as well as chocolates. There was also a TV in the wall cabinet which you could pull out and watch from the lounge area near the fireplace or the bed.
Breakfast was delivered in a basket the next morning (we were asked what time would suit us) and it was lovely - fresh warm croissants, moist muffins and a lovely variety of muesli, fruit and yoghurt served separately in Tupperware so we could mix our own. There was also a big jug of fresh fruit juice in the basket. There was a variety of coffee, tea and hot chocolate to choose from in the chalet as well.
I will definitely return to Alluvia. We had a wonderful stay.

Decided to spend our first wedding night at this establishment, what a mistake. We booked and paid our accommodation in December for our wedding that was in April (also informing them on the booking form that we will be checking in AFTER 12:00 in the honeymoon suite, because it was our wedding night). We eventually reached the estate @ 12:30am. The gate was closed so we try to contact reception to open the gate for us, no one answered. After half an hour of struggeling my husband decided to jump over the gate. After finding our honeymoon suite he returned to the gate with our key and remote and we were able to go inside. After entering the suite. We wanted to switch on the light. NON OF THEM WORKED, not the bathroom nor the livingroom. It was only the bedlamps that worked. There were no facial towels, handsoap or conditioner for the lady's (which I think is a must for a 5 star rated estate?)

Next morning, we received a picnic basket on the front porch. There was not table set for us, we had to sit on the sun chairs. Breakfast was plain, yogurt, fruit, croissant and juice. No warm breakfast or coffee??? I did report to the reception that we were very unhappy espesially for paying over R2000 for the one night. She just raised het shoulders and only offered a free bottel of wine (which you get in the room anyways?) and said that the manager that was supposed to answer the phone after hour was, and I qoute, "probably our partying.."

Had an awful stay and I truely hope that they sharpen up the management as the setting of this estate is absolutely stunning, its such a pitty actually?

We were looking forward to a relaxing weekend away from reality. But ended up having a weekend of utter disappointment with an entertaining twist. Reservationist Clary Cameron was sufficient and professional, from making the booking, to getting directions, to getting a list of restaurants good to eat at in the area sent to us, to flowers specially for us in the room. She offered incredible customer service and we were very content and excited. Nothing to do with her. The day we booked in we were checked in by a beautiful blonde who made us feel warm and welcome. Got to our room and the whole experience changed from there. Falsely advertised 5 star. More like 3 star. Old and poorly maintained. Box tvs, fireplace broken, over priced sheer disappointment. We went back to reception only to find the blonde taking care of a new born lamb, later we went to ask her for warm blankets (like advertised) only to find her chasing stray dogs like an olympic runner off the premises. She was interesting alright. But entertaining. We decided not to stay because of the conditions. When we checked out, the blonde was sincerely disappointed that we were leaving and really tried to keep us there. We explained it was not her fault and not to be worried. The only good thing about our stay was Clary Cameron who in the end, turned out to be the warm, caring blonde herself.
