The service was excellent. We stayed in the Country Cousin room and the only unfortunate downfall was the shower which was not working properly - which is quite a big thing in a room that only has one shower and no bath.

Our first visit was so good that we returned later in our trip. The accommodation was first class, very comfortable. The food (breakfast and the optional dinner) were excellent, as was the service. Could not fault it, will return.

My husband and I try to stay at Excelsior for 3 or 4 nights at least once a year. It is the most perfect place to relax, de-stress and chill out. The manor house is delightful, full of the De Wet family antiques and when sitting down to a delicious home-cooked meal by Carin, the wonderful "multi-tasking" manageress, you can... More

A beautiful old manor house in a wine farm within a stunning valley. Very comfortable room with lovely verandah and superb swimming pool. Caren, owner/manager, is very welcoming and helpful with information about things to do in the area. She also cooks very well! Dinners are accompanied by Exclesior wines, which are included in the dinner price. Thomas also makes... More

Lovely location on a sprawling farm, charming guesthouse and surroundings are spectacular. Golf cart trip around the farm with dogs in tow was the highlight. Dinner was ordinary and not good value for money, however local wines were fantastic.

Very agreeable overnight stop in old guesthouse with beautiful views. We weren't aware that we could dine here and had brought some wine and cheese which we were kindly permitted to eat at a poolside table. Only negative was the presence of pre- used bedroom slippers.

We stayed with the family and grandparents for a couple of nights in January. The dinner offered with the DBB is very good and some of the meals certainly have star-quality. The wine is free flowing with dinner, so you can drink as much as you please and so do your own relaxed wine tasting while enjoying a delicious meal.... More

This was a nice place to stay, and the food was good, but we would expect more from a place like this. We would expect more information on what to do, and also get more insight to the wine production. They had a great wine tasting and good wine, but living on a wine farm we would expect some more...

We stayed in the Guesthouse for 1 night in January 2014, just after the holiday season in South Africa. The guesthouse is situated several kilometres from Ashton, in the middle of wine lands (beautiful views on the wine fields and the mountains). It has a good tasting room (free tasting), with very very good wines. The guesthouse itself has tasteful... More
