What a wonderful stay we had. The farm is simply beautiful and the unrestricted access was very special. The room was very beautiful and comfortable. We really loved our interactions with the staff and we would recommend this venue to anyone who wants to experience a true South African wine farm house.

The room was extremely comfortable and the breakfast exceptional. It was an ultimate dream to stay between the majestic mountains and the vineyards. We found our souls and it was such an awesome experience to look up at night and see the galaxy of stars.

We started our honeymoon here and what a perfect way to start. The hospitality of Excelsior as well as the quality of accommodation and food was amazing. Special personalisation and service makes Excelsior exceptional and would recommend a stay here. A special thank you to James for his friendly and professional assistance.

I attended a seminar at the venue in April 2017 and stayed at the property for 2 nights. The manor house creates the feeling of old colonial Africa with beautiful antique furniture, high ceilings and thick walls. The food was fantastic and James and Kirsty are both gems stopping at nothing to make your experience personal and special. A jog...

Held a seminar at this venue in the beautiful Robertson Wine Valley. All the participants stayed over at the lodge, and dined there as well. It was beyond wonderful. Every attention to details was perfect, and our hosts Deon, Mr Bond, and Kirstin treated as like royalty.

We had a fabulous visit. The food and wine was superb and jog in the vineyards , guided by the Estate border collie, was fabulous. The sunset was sublime, and the room exquisite. I would recommend this accommodation and will definitely come back.

Set in a vineyard in the Robertson Valley Excelsior offers a real chance to wind down in splendid surroundings. We only spent one night here (in Allure) but would readily have stayed longer. The room was excellent, pool great, dinner absolutely marvellous and service from James fantastic. The best place we have stayed in S Africa

Lovely stay, clean room, friendly staff and the breakfast was great! You also get to mix your own bottle of red wine as an overnight guest, and that was the highlight for us! The views are simply breathtaking! Would recommend the stay to anyone.

Two night stay with dinner. The Manor House is beautifully situated amongst the vines with splendid views from the pool deck to the mountains beyond. James received us well and was then the very generous host for dinner on both nights.... more of that shortly. We were in the Gondolier room - very comfortable bed and nice touches - chocolates,...

Having been recently lovingly restored to its former glory, it offers quiet luxury and personal hospitality. Set in a mature and graceful garden, with shady trees and fragrant roses, the Manor has nine homely bedrooms, with ensuite bathrooms, and exudes old world charm. Generous home cooked country breakfasts and delicious three course dinners are served in the traditional dining room or on the raised deck overlooking the swimming pool with a view over the vineyards to the Langeberg mountains. Excelsior is a working wine farm which has been in the de Wet family for 5 generations since 1859. Guests are invited to explore the 250 hectare farm either on foot or in the golf cart provided.
