We had a lovely picnic here. The service was very good. The views are very nice. The food was good too. They have a nice dam with a big tree where you can go sit and have a picnic. It was nice a quiet there too, except for the occasional road noise from the Helshoogte road.

Alluvia Guest House is situated in one of the most amazing area, the property is old but very beautiful. We were welcomed by the manager of the guest house (cant remember her name). The reception area was poorly maintained. we were lucky to have the two bedroom house to ourselves. The rooms are very spacious with enough cupboard space, The mini bar fridge was half stock. both televisions (bedroom and dinning room) Remote were half functional, we had to get up most of the time to change channel, Old televisions. Half of the light in the house were not working. Hand basins and toilets were badly stained. First night, and we were unable to fall asleep as the alarm went off the entire night and no one could do anything about it, apart from the alarm, we had to endure the sound of Rats running inside the roof. The manager was highlighted on the few of the problem and nothing was done about. When asking her for direction to the different wine estate and restaurant, she could not even provide us with the map (Since it was our first time in the area), she did everything by hand gesture and we eventually decide to go along with what ever Google will give us. For a manager her attitude and passion to make our stay memorable was shocking! I would not recommended this estate to anyone, it a pity because it is a beautiful estate. How ever I would Recommend TOKARA wine estate, the have the most helpful and friendly staff you could ask for. The Owner of Alluvia is involve at all, otherwise things would have been different and better.

Stayed for only one night (unfortunately) and were blown away by the beauty of the setting as well as the friendliness of the staff. Room was extremely well appointed with a very comfortable bed and a spotless bathroom. Breakfast was good and enjoyed on the verandah with a most magnificent view of the mountain and vineyards. Only drawback was that they did not have stock of their Straw wine !!

I don't know where to begin.

I have stayed many places before.
But this special winery have take my breath away.
We checked in the Saturday night late.
The room was so beautiful thanks to Jenine and Bridget.
They really made extra effort.
They have put in flowers and chocolates. We did not even ask them to do anything for us.
The next morning when we woke up, a LOVELY picnic basket was delivered with a hand written note to congratulate us on our marriage!
They really do care about their guests.
The picnic basket breakfast with the most stunning view was priceless.
They made bookings for us at nice wineries in Stellenbosch.

We are definite going back for our anniversary.
I cant simply wait!!

Thanks Jenine and Bridgett and all the staff.

Room Tip: Please book before the time. I cant think why they wouldn't be full.

The scenery is breathtaking, the service was friendly and attentive. I asked them to do a little something special for us on our wedding anniversary and they pulled out the stops. We visited on a Groupon, and were still treated as well as any other guest would be. Their cheese board was the best I've had (they didn't skimp on the quantity or quality). A great experience.
