Well worth the 2 hour drive from Cape Town. Kirsten our hostess is an excellent chef and made sure we were fell fed from our arrival to when we left. James was a fabulous waiter, the Chef at the Deli is awesome and meeting the owner Peter de Wet was the highlight of our stay. Stunning country charm with welcoming... More

Really a pleasant surprise! The Manor house was beautiful and the service impeccable. We had the place to ourselves so enjoyed drinks at the fire in the lounge and a delicious 3 course dinner made by Kirsten and served by James-accompanied by excellent wines. Breakfast was just as good! Very impressed!

This nice english guesthouse is located in the beautiful south african winelands. After arrival you get a winetasting with Excelsiors own wines. For less money you are even able to blend your own wine which is a very nice souvenir or gift. As I mentioned before the winelands are amazing and invites you for a walk trough them. The staff...

Thank you very for your review - we really appreciate it and I am so glad that you had an enjoyable stay with us! The electric blankets are certainly a must in winter as the Robertson valley can get really really cold! We hope to welcome you back one day! More

Stayed 1 night during an 10 night karoo trip. Pleasant setting next to a lake/dam and with beautiful views of vineyards and mountains. 'Manor house' interesting. Room comfortable but bathroom small.(by SA standards!) Dinner disappointing at the price. Butternut soup weak, bobotie(mince dish) ok,and choc cake ordinary. Overall not fantastic value for money.

I very much enjoyed the stay in this manor surrounded by vineyards. I am not a wine drinker myself but my parents assured me that the wines were excellent. I do believe that the lady that usually cooks was absent and, whilst not bad, the food could have used some seasoning. A minor niggle considering that everything else was pretty... More

This place is a MUST do if traveling to South Africa. The rooms are amazing and the dinner was five star, not to mention the wine. The breakfast is served pool side overlooking the vineyards. 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.
