“Stay a while”
Reviewed 25 April 2012

All the self contained unist are arranged so that you have privacy, even the one we stayed in near the office. We had a small verandah overlooking a water feature (that was drained for a fair part of our stay). The driving range was a hit with my huband... I just enjoyed a glass of the Allivia wine while watching him before a spin on the lake. The scenery really was incredible.

The staff were lovely but ineffectual. We had constant problems with wifi & TV reception which were never addressed & the chimney needed cleaning - when we lit a fire the whole apartment filled with smoke! Still, we enjoyed our stay & would go back.

We spent two nights at Alluvia in the Tukulu lodge which has an absolutely stunning outlook onto the mountains and vineyards. We also took the opportunity to book the 'Little Pink Chef' to cook a lovely meal for us in the lodge, which was a great suggestion from Alluvia. Excellent option for a short break and really handy for Stellenbosch and the winelands.

We stayed at Alluvia Boutique Hotel for 1 night for a recent visit to the winelands. Our stay at the establishment was a bit two-sided. We checked in at reception to be told that our room wasn’t ready yet – although we confirmed it prior the previous day. So we went to do wine tasting at the tasting room and waited for our room to be ready. The receptionist came and told us our room is ready and threw the keys on the table. We found this a bit peculiar.

Arrived at our room to find that they were still busy cleaning it. So we waited until they finished.
The room itself is very nice, and we were quite surprised but the room as it wasn’t what we expected. We had Oakleaf 2 and loved our view and also the stoep area. All the amenities were there, with complimentary wine and sherry and nougat. Nice touches throughout the whole room. We did however have a problem with the towels and robes which had marks on them, although they were washed. Also the duvet and pillow cases had marks on them, and the edges of the covers were starting to frizzle and wasn’t nice.

The breakfast picknick basket was not good at all. It only had store bought muesli, yoghurt, some apple, a old muffin and old croissant in. They really can make this better, and it won't even cost them anything more. Not good at all.

The hotel is very central and beautifully located in the Helshoogte pass, and the room is nice, but the other things made it a bit unpleasant.

Room Tip: Get Oakleaf no.2 - beautifully located

What a superb visit we had - privacy is on top of the priority list and we rested like a King and his Queen! Beautiful setting with panoramic views - thank you to you all! We will be back..... oh and the wines were delish!

We stayed at Alluvia for one night in Feb 2012...we were greeted by two very friendly staff, Louise and Liezel. We arrived in a blistering 40 degree Stellies and weren't prepared for our stay there. They immediately offered us cold beer and showed us our room. We stayed in the Oakleaf No2 room with a lovely (clean) pool right in front. We got in the pool immediately and enjoyed the wine we got in the room. The views from the room and pool are absolutely breathtaking.

I also had a little "mishap" with my car the next day, and the two ladies organized their friends to come from town to help. In no time my car was fixed and ready to go...we quickly stopped for a wine tasting and bought some lovely wine to take home - what a treat !

Overall we had an amazing time at Alluvia and would recommend anyone else to go there.

Room Tip: Oakleaf No.2

The first leg of our honeymoon was spent just outside of our home town, Stellenbosch, on the famous Helshoogte Pass. The Sparkling wine and jacuzzi bath went down well in our luxury room, but by far the most exciting was the golf-car drive to the neighbouring farm for dinner! Thanks for a great stay!

We got married on a estate on the Helshoogte Pass and stayed at Alluvia for our first Honeymoon night in the honeymoon suite.

My husband arranged with the staff before hand on a list specifications for the room and gave money(too much for the list) to buy this. Unfortunately none of the specifications were met when we arrived there after our wedding. Nothing special was done to the room except for old strawberries and chocolates in the fridge.

Luckily the fact that we were tired and the beautiful room and bathroom made up for this. The spa bath was perfect except for the fact that there were no matches to light the candles and the foam bath was nearly finished.

Our breakfast "picnic" basket we received the next morning was shocking for the amount that we payed to stay there. It was filled with tupperware and plastic utensils with browning apples, yogurt, old pastries and apple juice. No cheese or honey. We were really disappointed.

This place has so much potential but needs to live up to the amounts quoted and image portrayed through their website.
