The grounds are gorgeous and the staff are top notch. On top of all this, you can go over to the sampling room and make... More

I went to Excelsior with two friends and we fell in love with it. The guesthouse has its own character and is very cosy. The estate is the perfect place to relax and enjoy the beautiful surroundings. The service is excellent and there is nothing you would miss. We also did a wine tasting, the place has a breath-taking location.... More

Awesome Hotel, Winery, We had such a wonderful experience at the Excelsior Manor Guesthouse. Everything was just perfect, from the room, the service, the wine, the location, the view, even the house dog gave us a guided walk.

Excelsior took us by surprise with their hospitality and excellent service. They offered a few surprises which made our stay very special. The rooms are beautiful and comfortable and the manor house and surrounds are in immaculate condition. At the wine tasting room on the farm you can blend and bottle your own wine and even design your own label.... More

We are two couples in our early 60s and this was our second visit to Excelsior. We love this gracious old manor house with its lovely antique furniture. The rooms are comfortable and the grounds and vineyards a delight to walk in with their beautiful views of the mountains. Carin gave us a wonderful welcome as did Mango and Kyla... More

Beautiful place, 4 of us stayed in Feb 2015. Rooms, house surrounds great. Carin the housekeeper isn't the most friendliest person and her manner is very abrupt. First night we were informed 'you will have dinner at 7pm, as the staff want to get home too'..... so we booked a meal elsewhere! Second night we spoke with her and informed... More
