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.

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
