About Excelsior Manor Guesthouse

Excelsior Manor Guesthouse is an “ostrich feather palace” set amongst the vines of Excelsior Estate in the Robertson wine valley. The Cape Dutch revival style house was the family home of the De Wet family, who have farmed Excelsior for the last five generations. Built in 1914 with money made from ostrich feathers, and recently lovingly restored to its former glory, it oozes old world charm, comfort and grace.

Accommodation

The nine spacious en-suite bedrooms are individually decorated, and named after horses that were bred at Excelsior, and offer luxury accommodation.

The southern face of the house opens onto a wooden deck, surrounding a deep blue swimming pool. This elevated, yet secluded deck, offers breathtaking panoramic views of the vineyards, the Langeberg, splendid sunsets and generally the ‘kingdom’ of this fertile valley.

Set in lush, established gardens with a rose labyrinth, manicured lawns and mature trees, the panoramic views of the vineyards and the distant Langeberg Mountains, make this a haven of relaxation far from the madding crowd.

Wine at Excelsior Manor Guesthouse

Excelsior Estate is a working wine farm and guests are invited to sample the range of Excelsior wines at the wine tasting centre, where they will also have the opportunity to blend their ‘own creation’ wine. Vines are tended, and grapes are harvested, ensuring continued employment for our longstanding labour force, and support for their families, some of whom have worked at Excelsior for generations. We also believe that hand picking ensures far better control on quality and also less wastage.

Activities at Excelsior Manor Guesthouse

Enjoy scrumptious breakfasts before going on excursions, or activities like fishing, birding and walking. Guests at Excelsior Manor Guesthouse are invited to taste the range of Excelsior wines at the wine tasting centre on the dam. There is also the opportunity to blend your ‘own creation’ wine. Go exploring with the golf cart, or on foot, into the hills and enjoy a sundowner with a view of the whole valley. A home cooked, three course dinner with Excelsior wines in the dining room is the perfect way to end a wonderful day.

Verified reviewexcellent

We stayed at Excelsior while exploring the winelands and could not have chosen a better place. It was a beautiful location and a beautiful house - the most wonderful place we stayed on our trip. Caren was a brilliant hostess and could not do enough to make us comfortable. We chose to have dinner at the house and it was a decision we did not regret. The food was amazing. We will definitely be staying here again, only next time we will stay longer.
