My partner and I spent a couple of days at Alpha Excelsior this April and really enjoyed our stay. The location is perfect for those who come for bouldering. We stayed in one of the vintage caravans which was lovely for the cheap price we paid, and were able to rent bouldering mats at the farm to go bouldering nearby. The owners are lovely and produce their own wine & olive oil - we did a tasting session which we really enjoyed ! As there are a couple of other caravans and cottages at the farm, we were able to meet fellow boulderers and spent some really nice evenings there !

We stayed in the Homestead recently and really enjoyed ourselves. The hosts are lovely and my Husband did wine tasting which was nice and very interesting. He liked the wine so much he bought boxes of it. The walk to the waterfall was my highlight although we got lost lol. The farm is lovely and I would have liked to have been there when the hen house was open as that would have been magic to have breakfast there etc. Only complaints is no condiments like salt, pepper, tea, coffee and the plates in cupboards were full of fish moths. Lovely place and nice to have a pool to share with others

Thank you for your feedback, very constructive. We will look into the fish moths, and we will be supplying salt, pepper and our own rooibos tea (grown on the farm) from now on in our four cottages. We are very happy that your husband enjoyed the wine tasting and our wine.

Have stayed at The Homestead twice and The Old Farmhouse once.Now looking forward to our fourth visit and staying at Weavers cottage.We are always made most welcome when we arrive and the accommodation and scenery are superb. We couldn't think of a better place to be in after an 11 hour flight from England .Cant wait till our next visit!

Alpha Excelsior have hosted my Yoga retreats and have always managed the weekends super smoothly. Besides the beautiful nature and accomodation they have to offer, there service is outstanding and warm. I feel at home here and always love returning for pleasure or work, it's all the same;) James and Becky have a loving connection to their farm and it comes through in all their actions! I highly recommend joining the pizza nights and drinking some of James's fantastic wine. There is always a vibe. As a climbing hub of South Africa Alpha Excelsior has proven time and time again that they are dedicated to making this everyone's home away from home:)

This is the second time i have stayed at Alpha Excelsior in The Old Farmhouse.This time as a group of 9 including 1 couple. Love having The Henhouse a short stroll away for their delicious breakfasts and lunches, and not forgetting the super friendly owners Bec and James. If you want somewhere central to most bouldering area's and can get a group of friends together make this place first on your list fo accomodation
