The whole Family stayed here for the first time for one night between safari at Gondwana and Cape Town. The Manor House was beautiful restored, with still a touch from the interesting history. Beautiful surroundings, and we went for a "river cruise" at the neighbor farm. JAMES was our perfect host 24/7 and we loved it! Everything was perfect except... More

We stayed here in January and were lucky enough to have to whole place to ourselves. The wine estate is beautiful and the manor house has been restored to a high standard. All rooms were great, but we stayed in the most expensive one as it was only an extra £10 and was indeed fantastic. It's not well advertised, but... More

We came back for another stay after our last visit in 2009. This time it ticked all the boxes again. This guesthouse is located in stunning surrounds and is a pleasure to stay at. We could not fault anything - great staff, excellent meals, spacious accommodation, beautiful surroundings, cleanliness, etc. etc. This venue is highly recommended! Do yourself a favour... More

We already stayed at the Excelsior Manor Guesthouse in 2014 and left with some amazing memories. This time we extended our stay and what great idea that was! Carin and James in particular made us feel welcome and sooo comfortable. The guesthouse is surrounded by beautiful gardens. All the rooms have this nostalgic charme. Wooden floors and many, many manor... More

We can recommend this Guesthouse for a stay in the Robertson Wine Area. We have only one advise: don't go to breakfast when eberybody else is. In high season the only friendly waitress can't We had to wait a long time for any service.

Dear Guest Thank you for the input - highly appreciated. I will see that I have an extra waitress over the high season to keep all my guests happy - with enough food and a quick service. Thx again - I believe we can only better ourselves listening to our guests - because without guests I cannot have a guesthouse.... More

We enjoyed three nights during December. Karen was a wonderful hostess - setting a warm and inviting tone to our stay. The room was comfortable and we enjoyed the yesteryear and traditional feel of the place. Breakfast and dinner were both delicious and generous. I think this establishment is best suited to couples or friends enjoying a weekend away together.

Ms. V. is a fantastic host. She is very caring and tries to do everything to make your stay perfect. Driving with the golf cart through the wine yards was great experience. Very nice pool area. The bed was super-comfortable. Only "bad" thin was that the WIFI was a little bit weak in our room (Octavius Suite). Thanks a lot!

What a wonderful experience! From the moment that I made the booking at Carin, we experience excellent service. The service from the other staff was also very good. James really is a brilliant butler! The rooms are 5 star quality. The food and wine is exceptional! As a photographer the splendid serenity made it a feast. I recommend the Excelsior... More

We stayed at Excelsior for a night in December. We were welcomed and very well looked after by James - he made our stay! The guesthouse and property is beautiful and food is delicious. Definitely somewhere we would stay again!
